Taking us back to 1812 when the US and the British were at war, this historical strategy game takes place on a hex-based map. It's also the sequel to Rebels and Redcoats.

Pixel Heroes: Byte & Magic

This looks like a football version of Clash of Clans. It might be. You build your own stadium, collect cards to fill out your team, and then play friends in real-time matches to win trophies.
