Great game Needs a few things, like a Google account for saving games. Some of the PC units arty, engineers etc. Plays well. Thanks to killerbeez for keeping this classic game alive.
This app is awesome! I almost failed out of college because I spent so much time playing the pc version of this game back in the 90s. They left the game largely unchanged for the mobile version, except for the touchscreen functionality, which is excellent.
Absolutely love this game!!! Played the desktop version since the early 90's. If it hangs during saving the game or at the start of your turn, it may be maxing the capacity of your device. A 400x400 map would barely run on my tablet and my smartphone was fine until I had about 100 units on the board. A 50x50 map runs fine on both.
Hard to Stop Playing this Classic Wargame! Empire Deluxe was my first PC wargame back in the early '90s, and this version is even more fun! What a perfect wargame for a tablet! The touchscreen implementation is perfect. For those who aren't familiar with it, Empire Deluxe is a strategic wargame with land, air, and naval units. You start with one city and expand your empire. Each city can be optimized to produce certain units, including infantry, armor, fighters, bombers, transports, destroyers, submarines, cruisers, battleships, and aircraft carriers. Like the Battle of Britain, there is strategic bombing (the bombers can damage cities' production efficiency), and like island hopping in the South Pacific, you can convert land units into airbases to extend the range of your air units (great against naval units!). It also has a Hall of Fame that keeps track of your wins and losses (and even wins/losses of individual AI players), giving you incentive to keep improving. This is a game that you can play for hours, or you can play for a few minutes and save, then pick up again later. But it plays so smoothly that it's hard to stop! NOTE TO THE DEVELOPER: Please bring your Enhanced Edition to tablets!
Great Game! I have been playing since Empire - Wargame of the Century (Interstel), through Empire Deluxe (White Wolf), Empire Deluxe (Internet Edition (PC version of this game with more players, head to head play, internet play, and ability to customize)), and now Empire Deluxe Mobile Edition. Game play is VERY similar to Interned Edition, but only 1 human player. Good implementation for touch screen. I have found larger maps slow down a lot, but on my mobile device, I tend to keep the maps smaller so the games don't take weeks to finish. Great for those short breaks at work or when I have a few minutes to kill - play a few turns of Empire! I much prefer the games where planning, strategy, and control are more valuable than speed and reaction time. Great work Mark! Thanks for extending this game into it's third decade of play and updating for the mobile platform!
Frequent mid game crashes The original DOS version back in 79 was written for multi player game play. I admit that I've loved the hours I've spent on this but multi humna player would be far better. any chances of an upgrade soon. Recently the game has started crashing after an hour or so of play. I know, save often. But still, the crashes are bothersome. d
