The world of modern mobile gaming has come a long way since Brick Breaker and Tetris were the only options -- in fact it has progressed to the point at which social messages are now being conveyed in games -- so you no longer have to pretend to be a vegan in order to impress that girl (and that should save you big bucks on mouthwash and breath mints as well as remove the necessity to buy your burgers out of the back door of Micky D's, we are just saying)...
7Sixty -- the game developer that brought us Stronghold 3 -- is at it again, and this time it is a pair of games that come from different worlds and if they got together, would create a love child that posed a threat to reality as we know it!
Minor Lords -- Illustrating the Responsibility of the Aristocracy
We are assured by our contact at 7Sixty that Minor Lords is a free thing. And it's a tower defense thing. It is also designed for mobile devices that run iOS or Android -- with iPads and tablets included in its release, which you know, is a good thing...
It stars two rather striking protagonists, Archibald and Remus, in their very first adventure -- this very cool thing -- this thing that makes you want to ask: What the hell is Minor Lords?!
Archibald and Remus have been kicked out of their castle and now they need to find a home... But they're not the only ones looking for somewhere to live! The two friends tour the medieval countryside, squatting in any empty castles they find along the way but as darkness falls, enemy lords, evil knights and even wild animals are trying to find somewhere to spend the night too.
Help Archibald and Remus defend their new stronghold by building a range of crazy contraptions to take out the enemies, including catapults, towers that shoot rabid badgers and swarms of angry bees. Plus, collect gold to upgrade the defences so you're ready to stop the bosses bashing your gates down. It's the perfect slice of medieval mayhem! And did we mention it is free? And mobile? Yah, it is.
So what are you waiting for? Go download this thing and give it a whirl:
