Introduction

Crystal War Blood Field is the sequel to the hugely popular Crystal War app. This game is a charming combination of real-time strategy combined with role-playing characteristics resulting in an engaging experience.

The one key element that makes this game stand apart from the original, Crystal War is the network-enabled real-time multiplayer mode. Many fans were desperate to experience this mode and DigitalFrog have given Crystal War Blood Field all the elements that those fans wanted and more.

 

 

What’s It All About?

Getting started with this app you have to choose whether to play in Single Mode or Network Mode. If you choose Single Mode you then get taken to a further screen and from there you need to choose from Campaign Mode, Unlimited Mode, Ranking and Achievement. From Campaign Mode you then need to select either a Human or Goblin army to lead into battle. Each stage is described in detail at the beginning of each chapter. The information is very thorough but a larger font size, or even the ability to increase it would be desirable. Each Stage has a time limit, commander level and mission.

As you might expect the campaigns get harder as you progress but there is so much fun to be had. Not only do you have to contend with a time limit, you’ll also find yourself scrabbling to increase your wealth whilst trying to bring into action the strongest offensive and defensive forces you can afford. There are a huge array of army units to choose from, all with various strengths and weakness.

When you feel confident that you have got the hang of this game you’ll soon find yourself heading over to the Network mode. Here you will find the most experienced players from around the world to take your battle too. Believe me it’s no easy feat but it is hugely fun and addictive.
