5 reasons to try Fire and Glory, the strategy game set in fantasy Sparta
Available for free for iOS and Android devices
In a world besieged by war - where the only way to rise as a true champion is through a clash of swords and a test of your mettle - do you have what it takes to defend your entire civilization and watch as others crumble at your feet?
From stunning architectural styles for each structure you build to the fiery background music that can inspire the weariest warrior to battle, Koofei Limited’s fantasy strategy game Fire and Glory immerses players in the glory days of Sparta like no other.
Fight alongside fearsome beastsWhile other empire building strategy games may spur armies to fight against dragons or claim the throne as a king, Fire and Glory takes things up a notch with its unique Beastiary feature. Players can use special Rune Shards to unlock monster Seal Stones, and you can use these unholy creatures to unleash hell on your enemies on the battlefield. For instance, the ongoing Hunting Tauren Judicator event every Wednesday and Saturday can help you score those precious shards and stones to gain the upper hand against your unwitting foes.
Strategise and lead a well-balanced army into battleTo ensure the victory of your city-state as the noble hegemon of your realm, you must learn to maximize both your Hero skills and your army’s strategy so that your efforts won’t be in vain. Build your Barracks and train your troops accordingly, but remember - while you can recruit Spartan Elites, Thessaly Riders, Cretan Archers, and other units to turn the tide in a match, each unit has its own pros and cons. Once you have a more well-rounded army that possesses both brains and brawn on the battlefield, you can rally with your alliances and participate in alliance events like capturing the Capital. Conquer it to score titles and bonuses, plus valuable resources you can use to grow even stronger.
Join forces with mighty allies to reign supremeOf course, no man can stand against opposing forces alone, so building your own network of allies is invaluable. Aside from the “Aegis of Protection” that shields your city against invading forces for a certain duration, you can take advantage of the City Migration feature to cluster together with your League. When you feel like you’ve amassed enough strength and combat prowess, you can join your allies in capturing the capital for the ultimate bragging rights and in-game privileges that will further strengthen your domain. Who will stand tall as the victor in the final battle?
Power up your Hero with unique skillsYou can also wage war against occupied tiles, and plan your timing wisely - sometimes, knowing when to send out and withdraw troops under siege can spell the difference between victory and defeat. Make sure that your warriors recover their health after every match, and that your resource yield is always higher than the maintenance cost of troops at all times. Leveling up your hero - the mighty and mysterious Zofia - will also buff up your overall power, while spending Skill Points to unlock skills in your hero’s Skill Tree can give your basic abilities a welcome boost. You can also craft Gears in the Forge to further enhance your strength in the war.
Rally forces around the globe with automatic language conversionAbove all, Fire and Glory is first and foremost a massively multiplayer online real-time strategy game, where players from across the globe can easily play together and respond valiantly to a call to arms in real-time through automatic language conversion, because nothing should stand in the way of ultimate victory in Sparta.
Whether you’re a seasoned war game expert or a newbie aficionado looking for your next mobile favorite game, there’s so much that Fire and Glory has to offer (Monster Hunts, capturing enemy Heroes, and even doing shady business dealings in the Black Market included). The game can be downloaded for free on both iOS and Android devices. You can learn more about dominating your realm in the game’s official Facebook page.
