Tiny Token Empires has finally made its way to Android thanks to HeroCraft. It’s a real-time strategy (RTS) game, but more for the casual fan. Hardcore RTS fans are probably not going to find this one all that appealing, but for those of you that are intrigued with strategy and puzzle-type games will enjoy this one. If you like a little humor thrown in then it will make it that much more enjoyable for you.
Tiny Token Empires is all about maneuvering your troops into territories, fighting for takeover, and building additional territories and armies. Fighting for land is where the puzzle-aspect comes in as it becomes a match three game. Each troop type corresponds to different colored tokens and by matching three of the required tokens, you will gain more power. You will need to play this match three game enough times so that you have enough power to take the enemy out. If you are able to match four, you get an additional turn. Yes, it’s a Bejeweled clone thrown into a strategy game.
After you have taken over an area, you will be able to use the income from that land to build settlements and hire more soldiers. Doing this repeatedly will hopefully make you the dictator of the world.
Based on what I have told you so far, the game would seem simple, but it can be complicated at times. There is a lengthy tutorial when you first play the game that will go over everything and it can seem daunting with so many controls and features. Ultimately, Tiny Tokens is about moving your troops into areas that are occupied and playing the Bejeweled-clone repeatedly until you win.
Tiny Tokens is priced at $2.99, which I think is a little high for a game like this. For those that are already familiar with playing the game on a PC or iOS in the past, it might not be too high, but it’s going to be tough to attract new players at that price. If you’re looking for a simple strategy game, this one might be for you. You can view HeroCraft’s trailer below and hit one of the download links to get started.
