World War: A nuclear war breaks out on Android

World War was originally developed for the iPhone, but recently came to Android. The company who makes it, Storm8, brags that they are, “the creator of the #1 Role Playing Games on the iPhone and iPod Touch.”

The game itself is a role playing game which means you do missions and battles to gain experience which will cause you to grow levels. At higher levels you can purchase better buildings and units to make you stronger in battle. Buildings boost defense, restore energy (which is used to complete missions), and increase cash flow. Units are used to win battles and complete missions.

The Android version of World War is identical to the iPhone version except for several aspects. The first difference is the navigation – instead of having permanently docked navigation buttons at the bottom, the controls can be accessed by pressing the menu button from any screen. Second, Storm8 does not offer honor points like they promote on Apple’s App Store. Honor points can be cashed in for money, allies, loot, and other rewards. If you run out of honor points you can also buy some from their website.

The missions (player versus computer) and battles (player versus other players) have no fancy graphics. Just simply click attack and are told the outcome. The battle system of the game happens continuously between all players of the game (even when you aren’t playing you can be attacked). You can also form alliances with other players in order to make you more powerful when fighting.

There is also currently no way to transfer an account from an iPhone or iPod Touch to the Android version. There are already many people asking for this on their forums, so hopefully it will come soon.

The goods:

  • Grow levels to unlock new buildings and combat units
  • Form an alliance with other players around the world
  • Five different countries offer unique bonuses to the players who fight for them

Needs improvement:

  • Currently there is no way to transfer and account from the iPhone or iPod Touch
  • Promotions giving free honor points are not yet offered on the Android Market
  • The back button doesn’t bring you to previous screens, but rather exits the game from any screen.

Final Verdict

If you like modern combat role playing games this will be fun for you. Those who prefer more general RPGs should check out the other games Storm8 makes. Be warned; you may get addicted.

    I install this game yesterday – it is really good one. The problem is with logging on forum – Android version has no registration function.

    I simply do not see the appeal of this game type. There’s no real interaction, you just push buttons over and over. I’d take something like Tetris any day over a game like this.

    • http://Website Mocha K

      Yea, i agree. I thought it was interactive. How is this the #1 game. How boring.

  • http://Website Jesse

    Somewhat interesting at first, but even if you manage to get past the lack of there being much actual gameplay, you’ll find that you’ll end up always losing to people who have more ‘allies’ than you. Which is I imagine the key to the game’s success — everyone has to recruit as many friends to play as possible or they can’t compete with others who have. The game is not balanced in any way. There was a day when similar BBS door games existed but they took a lot more effort to create because the players expected some semblance of game balance.

    • http://Website Barry

      The game balances out about level 8

    • http://Website Jerry

      the game is balanced fron the start. it only pairs you up with people that are in the same level as you and with a similar amount of alliances. it all depends how you have spent your money, that’s what will make the difference when it comes to battles

  • http://Website TheBigCheese

    You guys do realize that this game is exactly the same as the 10-20 other “click buttons for days on end”. It’s somewhat fun in the beginning, but basically all they want you to do is buy points from them to be able to do more stuff.

    There’s no gameplay whatsoever, regardless of what the description says.

    @123: I think it stands for broadcast. As in broadcast your alliance code to all of their allies.

    And guys…it doesn’t matter what level your allies are or how good stuff they have. All that matters is the amount you have and the quality and amount of YOUR units. You should have 6 x the number of allies you have of the best units.
