- One, single, solitary IAP that unlocks all of the Veteran Content (forever and ever).

What people are saying about MIRTS:

"This doesn't mean he can't do smarter and bigger things, just that a port of A Dark Room is not that, and neither were his other descriptions of projects he did in the meantime (for example, look at the screenshots for Mildly Interesting RTS)." - Jonathan Blow, creator of Braid and The Witness

"This RTS is indeed, mildly interesting." - A random person

"I was able to play my friend over wifi, during lunch, one-handed. My other hand was holding a delicious sammich." - RTS enthusiast

"My significant other beat me. How is this possible?" - Former diamond league Starcraft player

"This old guy played against me and he won, but my APM was so high. How did he do that?" - Angsty teen who is inexperienced at RTS's

"I don't get this game. What is an APM?" - Someone who doesn't play RTS's and probably shouldn't have downloaded MIRTS

"The description of this game is probably better than the game itself. But I'll download it anyways." - Pessimistic viewer

"Meh." - Hobby game developer

"Wait, are you just quoting anyone that reaches out to you?" - Photographer

"I love bamboo." - A panda bear

Really Great at Doing What it Says It Does

As far as RTS games go, I’m mostly familiar with Age of Empires, but while there are maybe a couple of apps that have similar mechanics, most of them nickel-and-dime you to death just so you can play them. I’ll admit I occasionally get into FTP games with IAP if they’re halfway decent (I look at it as like, my parents used to spend hundreds of dollars in quarters at arcades, so ain’t nothing’s changed) but the bottom line is, most, nearly all, are NOT anywhere near “good”. So this is a bit simpler of a game, then (no resource grabbing except in the most extremely abstract sense) but it’s a solid entry point for someone who wants to get at RTS games and doesn’t know where to start. I also really respect Amir, the developer, for just being himself and having principles he sticks to, while making good games at a fair price. Maybe I’m not as strict in my interpretation of what plagues mobile games, but I strongly encourage anyone on the fence about this game, or anyone who isn’t yet but does have strong opinions about micro transactions, to pick this one up and play it a lot. I think you’ll like it a lot.

This is Good Game

This game is awesome. One of my favorite things is that there’s no in app currency. Like, come on, those other games with stuff like “bucket “ of gems!” “Mountain of coins!” “Planet of DIAMONDZ” only want the money. Gameplay gets so hard on those games, and you stop having fun. But this game is way different. Everything’s balanced (there’s only one unit) and it’s challenging. What would be cool is if you added a difficulty meter to set the difficulty up or down, because the AI has lightning fast reflexes while I have to jumble my mind between four different nodes. You should also add a map maker to make custom maps(I know there is random maps but they’re random.) Overall this game is awesome and I enjoy it a lot!

Oh yeah uhh I can’t find any money in or on my couch so does that mean that the Veteran Content is free? lol

Love your work

You always have the best games, I love how most of your games seem so simplistic but have so much depth. You are the master of using very little to make a lot! I know you get frustrated that you can’t add more to your games, but keep it up. The things you do add are absolute masterpieces by themselves.

About this game itself: it’s a very entertaining experience and keeps you occupied during any downtime you have. Would be fun with online multiplayer but I know that can be a pain to make, and with the AI it’s great on its own. Excellent app and I would recommend it!
