Apple Games Features Legion Arena
9:52 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Apple Games has posted a new feature on Slitherine's Legion Arena, a hybrid real time strategy and role playing game which puts players in command of their own Roman Era legion. To succeed in the over 100 included battle scenarios commanders must train their troops and develop effective strategies for the battlefield.

Success on the battlefield also enables you to upgrade your soldiers between battles. You can increase their abilities in a number of offensive and defensive areas, as well as boost their morale or their basic physical limits. Many of the upgrades provide foundations for even better improvements later in the game.

The Army Camp screen, where you’ll find the aforementioned features, also allows you to view each of your squad’s statistics as well as its battle history. You can also disband squads that don’t serve a useful purpose anymore; you’ll receive a few Denari as compensation when you do so.

After you’ve upgraded your military, but before you begin the next battle, plan your strategies on the deployment screen. Study the enemy’s position and then place your squads accordingly; remember to line your strongest troops across from his weakest, taking the terrain into account. You should also consider what your opponent might do and plan for that contingency.

To check out the rest of the feature, which also includes a brief history of Rome, head over to the link below.
