Settle Forge is a game that was excited to finally see come out but once I got into it, my excitement was tempered some. Before I get to my thoughts- what is the game about?
From the press release:
“At its heart, SettleForge is a tile placing game in which players match the colored borders of tiles in order to build a kingdom. The challenge of the game lies in the logically-constructed production chains and tech trees that these tiles are a part of.
Building simple tiles provide resources that power more advanced tiles, which in turn power even more advanced tiles. The more advanced the tile, the more progress you make towards winning the game, which can be played either as quick, one-off sessions or as part of a longer, more story-driven campaign.”
- 42 unique buildings
- 4 stages
- 51 achievements
- Story-driven campaign
- Complex production chains
Settle Forge is a beautiful game and I love the music. It is a game of thought and one you cannot learn in probably one setting. In the game you are tasked to help rebuild the empire, literally from the ground up. I really like the idea of the game but had a hard time getting into it initially.
The game is free but you can only play the tutorial; if you want to do more, you have to buy the game. I do not think the tutorial really gives you enough information about the game. FYI: I contacted the developer for a review copy because of this.
The game does have some detailed rules but again, I found it laborious to go through. So I would have to say I am a bit frustrated but I want to give this game a try. Check out the videos below to get a better view of the game. The game is about $4 USD and should be coming to Android in the near future.
