Train Your Droid with Iron Soldiers for Android
I am sure most of us children of the 80 and 90’s remember/know about Pokemon, a small virtual pet that you trained for it to be the best it could be. The whole concept has bled into games of all forms and shapes and Iron Soldiers, by XDA member cyberniko takes on a similar approach, but with a twist. In this game, you will have a robot/droid, which you will need to raise and train to be the best fighter there is. Your droid will be used to interact not only with you, but with others as well. The dev claims that tournaments will be held from time to time to get the droids to pit against each other. The best part? Just like in any event in this world, you can bet on your bot.
The game is in early stages, but seems like a rather interesting and promising concept. Please leave feedback for the dev.
This new game mixes arcade, strategy and social.
Basically, you have a robot with engines, sensors… and you have to train him, teach him how to fight, and finally bet on him.
I know it’s the day 1, a lot of help is missing but, rather display a lot of popups, I would like to know how you understand the interface and the concept.
