The strategy game series, especially the real-time strategy game (RTS), used to be a hit in the gaming community. The attraction of this type of game lies in the gameplay that requires detailed, clever calculation.
Many famous strategy games like Warcraft, Age of Empires, Starcraft, Command & Conquer ... have fascinated so many people thanks to the "intense" battles. However, their adapted games on mobile do not bring strong attraction as before, why is that?
Smartphone processing power is not sufficient
Along with the strong development of the generation of smartphones, game makers also gradually bring a series of games to this new market. However, it is at this stage of "adaptation" that many features, the "core" elements of the strategy game are removed for ... lightweight.
Although a lot of new smartphones have come with the same configuration and powerful performance, the gameplay of many mobile games still sticks to a common model.
Specifically, the majority of mobile games today use turn-based mechanism (turn-based combat). Players are no longer directly in control of their generals, only arranged and observed. This invisibly has lost the drama in strategy games.
As a result, gamers from "commander" become "observers" of the battle, unable to decide in important moments. This drawback has long been on the strategy games of the mobile game segment.
This is the "wall" separating gamers who love tactics to the compact smartphone market. Even so, there are still rare games on mobile with pure gameplay, rich in tactics
Gamers increasingly "easy"
In contrast to the loyal gamers of the "classic" strategy genre in the past, many gamers gradually became "easier" in selecting. In addition, the Auto system is growing, omitting a lot of operations, helping gamers get acquainted faster, those games are also ... easier.
In addition, many gamers prefer the games with beautiful graphics rather than excellent gameplay. However, for true tactical gamers, epic graphics are not necessarily the deciding factor.
Diversifying the army with its own strengths / weaknesses, upgrading skills, building structures ... are the things that they are most interested in. It is not natural that people still care about "how many minutes of life" in the Empire, even though this game is "old" already!
A situation that often appears again is: Overpaying people, "giants" overwhelming "civilians". Tactics of mobile games gradually disappear when gamers who spend "strong hands", higher fighting power will easily win without brainstorm.
No longer the challenge that makes gamers have to "scratch their heads" to think, there are no more fierce battles between strategists. This is a pity for this legendary series.
Conclusion for hill climb racing
In the context of the mobile strategy games getting easier, the games that promote classic strategy games like Bat Bag Battle gradually become unique, "harder" than. That will be the place for gamers to unleash their talent "military control generals".
Anyway, the strategy game series is gradually being "revived" with many games coming out in the near future. Hopefully we will experience the best battles again.
