It took its sweet time but the "sort of" RTS Age of Empires: Castle Siege has finally made its way to Android after being out since July 2015 on iOS.

Instead, it's quite a lot like Clash of Clans in that you attack other forts (here castles) with the units that you bring before each mission. You'll also have to build your own castle and improve its defenses.
