In 2017, Pocket Gamer's doing something extra special. Each month, we're going to hand select our favourite mobile games and give away codes to our awesome community: the App Army.

The App Army is a select bunch of mobile gaming enthusiasts, who we provide with early access and free codes for a variety of different games each week. Becoming a member is as easy as signing up to the Facebook page, at which point you can start requesting codes and joining in right away.

A quick note before we kick things off though: we aim to get codes for every game that makes our best of games roundup, but that isn't always possible. So please bear in mind that if your favourite game doesn't make the list, it isn't because we don't like it.

Today's offering is the cartoon strategy hit Fieldrunners Attack! - an RTS that hasn't been compromised at all for mobile.

What's this all about then?

Fieldrunners Attack! is a humorous RTS that challenges you to turn a quaint little town into a deadly fortress, equipped with defences and resource generators to help fund your war efforts.

And these involve both a massive single player campaign featuring over 60 missions, and multiplayer, in which you can battle your friends to decide once and for all who's the best.

With heroes to unlock and upgrade, a bunch of units to master, and leaderboards to climb, there's plenty here to keep you busy.

And it's a lot of fun, if our review is anything to go by. We gave it a respectable Silver Award, and said: "An interesting change of direction for the series that actually adds something to the genre it ends up in".

Okay, let me at it

Not so fast. You can get a chance of playing it by signing up to the App Army here, then writing your name as it appears on Facebook in the comments below. Please bear in mind that we only have iOS codes for this one though.

We'll then distribute the codes to the select lucky winners within one working day of this article going live.

Good luck, and stay tuned at 5PM GMT every day this week for a chance at another game!

What is this App Army anyway? The App Army is Pocket Gamer's very own community of mobile game experts. Each week, we provide them with a bunch of free codes and early access to the hottest upcoming games so they can provide their thoughts in features like this. We also host regular community-driven events with them in mind like tournaments, giveaways, and multiplayer evenings. To join, simply follow this link to the page on Facebook and request access. We'll get you in right away!
