Amoebattle is an intense, fun, and deep real time strategy (RTS) game.
The gist is the same as other RTSes—grow a big army with the right kinds of units for a looming engagement. Mine enough resources that you can expand your army in a balanced way. Deploy them in a manner that makes sense strategically. Kick ass. Rinse and repeat.
Amoebattle is a lovely-looking game, with a nice pastel art-style, cute and mostly easily identifiable units (though sometimes they do all blend together), and a friendly, upbeat orchestral soundtrack.
True to the game's amoeboid theme, unit development and upgrades take place inside the units themselves. If an amoeba has eaten enough food, it will be able to split and replicate, thereby growing your army. You'll also have to harvest power to grow some types of new units. Planted harvesters make for a more defend-the-base style of play typical to the RTS genre.
Other resources and strategies are also written into the game's "science." Every amoebae is either an herbivore, omnivore or a carnivore, and this affects how they move through the environment and interact with each other. Stats are varied and specific—in short order, you'll be commanding a large and diverse army.
It's a smart and well-made game, just the thing for tactics-minded iOS gamers looking for something deep and satisfying to try.
