Turn Based Strategy Game ‘Skulls of the Shogun’ to hit WP7 in the FallApril 6, 2011 2 Comments
Lets start off by saying that I am a HUGE Advanced Wars fan. So to hear that a turn based strategy game was coming to Windows Phone had me pretty excited. Then to see how good it looks just drove me into an instant panic and now I just need that game.
All my obsessiveness aside, ‘Skulls of the Shogun’ looks like it will be a great game and an instant winner on WP7. It is first set to be available on the Xbox 360 around the end of summer with the Windows Phone version coming out soon after.
The game, Skulls of the Shogun, is a thematic descendant of samurai movies filtered through the better martial arts hip-hop style of Wu-Tang producer the RZA (listen to the video here; thatâ€™s in-game music. In terms of how it plays, Skulls is the child of Final Fantasy Tactics, X-Com, Advance Wars, Valkyria Chronicles and, of course, the game that spawned all of them: chess. This is a turn-based strategy game with the Shogun as the prize piece, the piece whose defeat renders a match immediately lost but who, along with his fighting allies, has abilities that make him a unique combatant on the board. – kotaku.com
