WITH EMPIRES, REDISCOVER THE GAME OF CONQUEST. Develop war strategies of unprecedented complexity with numerous game options. Dominate the world by facing up to five powers, managed by IA or other players during LAN parties. Available for iPhone, iPod and iPad, Empires offers you a whole new strategic experience!
BATTLE YOUR OPPONENTS DURING BREATHTAKING PARTIES WITH UNLIMITED GAME POSSIBILITIES. Thanks to its five levels of IA, Empires allows beginners to familiarize themselves with the game of conquest in a rewarding way, and strategists to show the extent of their talent. A large-scale map, with 130 countries divided into 7 regions, as well as varying playing styles depending on the empires, allows every situation to be reversed. With power struggles between countries, and different terrains and strengths or weaknesses of each nation during battles, Empires lets players develop increasingly complex strategies.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE NUMEROUS GAME OPTIONS TO TEST NEW TACTICS. Your budget, growing with your conquests, can be used to buy armies and ships, but also to spy on enemy territories, try to corrupt a nation, or fortify lands. It is even possible, with donations of money, to encourage some countries to defend themselves more effectively against other players.
DISCOVER THE FUN OF A SMOOTH-FLOWING GAME. No need to wait after each battle: despite its large-scale map, Empires instantly updates each new configuration of the world at the end of fighting. Victories and defeats follow each other at a breathtaking pace, and you immediately see your progress with detailed battle reports and clear display.
BATTLE YOUR FRIENDS DURING INCREASINGLY STRATEGIC LAN PARTIES! Play solo against other participants, or create alliances with your friends to conquer an even more powerful IA during multiplayer parties. Donate money to your allies in trouble to optimize your chances of victory, or fight against them to become master of the world. Empires offers the possibility of creating multiplayer parties in Bluetooth or Wi-Fi for up to 6 participants.
WITH EMPIRES, AWAKEN YOUR STRATEGIC INSTINCT!

This game is nice in the sense that it is a relaxing, turn-based strategy you can take at your own pace and think about what to do. Even though there's spying bribing and such mainly the game boils down to 2 words: overwhelming force. The one who sends 500 armies and 200 ships is more likely to win as compared to the dude who throws 2-5 armies and 1 ship. Which in one sense makes it like Risk though the similarities are that and colonial setting and that's all. You actually get money and purchase armies and ships from your territories but only in certain regions on the map, which requires thinking in terms of logistics and investing in ships. Late game ships are so valuable but they die as easily as your infantry so budget your income between armies and ships. The game so far only seems difficult on account of AI counterattacks and the massive size of the map. Never think an outlying territory will last without forts and even with forts it's basically never 100% secure. I personally don't know what people are talking about with accidentally ending 1 of your 5 consecutive movement phases and losing the game, I mean the button is similar but analysis of the screen can tell you what will happen when you press it. Yeesh, people on the app store make up excuses to say there are bugs in fully functional apps.
I'll preface my ONLY concern by saying this is easily the BEST conquest game I've ever played. Really solid. And when you get really good and play on 'very difficult,' a single game can last a week(s) (depending on how often you play). Which is great. I'm so addicted to this game. Multi-faceted war. That being said... My only concern is that when you conquer the Ruhr territory, which is a capital, you can BUY ships but you can't MOVE them anywhere! Ruhr is special, because it's the only capital that cannot be attacked by ships, so I was thinking I would purchase my ships there so they would stay safe. However, I was unable to move them once I amassed 10,000 ships. Talk about devastating (especially if your playing as Russia). Developers, please EITHER disable ones ability to purchase ships from there, or enable deployment of ships from Ruhr. Thank you
Way too hard
I ain't afraid of a challenge but "super easy" level shouldn't be so hat I'm defeated every single time in a matter of just a couple turns. I've played risk many many many many times and know how to strategize. The ai seems to amass enormous quantities of troops within just a couple turns. Thousands and thousands and thousand of infantry on top of hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of ships in just maybe 4-5 turns. At the same time in as few many turns they have already conquered every single continent on the planet but the one you are started off on and still trying to take. By the time you do, the ai is pounding you from all over the globe and there is no way to compete as he has you in infantry 100-1 and ships 100-1. I bought, played about 4 games on easiest mode and lost all of them within 20 mins. I just as quickly removed the game and I will contest the 99 cents if I get charged it.
