Conclusion: It’s surprising how few real-time strategy games are currently available on Wii considering the control possibilities of both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk, but perhaps developers will take note of Ronimo’s success on WiiWare.
Conclusion: All in all Ronimo Games did an excellent job with this title. They have successfully created a real time strategy game for the Wii console. In addition, although it is not in 3D like most new RTS, I do not care simply because it is beautiful and it works. The sound design and graphics mesh well.
Conclusion: Swords and Soldiers could have done with more factions, but for its asking price of 1,000 Wii points, its challenging single-player experience and fun multiplayer romp already present a good amount of value.
Pros: Hectic and fun for veterans and RTS newbies, Great balance between the three factions, Simple, easy-to-grasp controls, Compelling two-player.
Cons: Selecting units can become difficult in crowds, Bland environments.
Excerpt: Nintendo’s Wiiware service is a bit of a mix bag at the moment, it doesn’t always bring great hits, but from time to time the occasional fantastic game pops up that is worth getting attention. The latest title to shout about is Ronimo Games’ Swords & Soldiers.
Excerpt: Swords & Soldiers is a new WiiWare release from Ronimo Games, the developers behind the original PC version of de Blob. It is a side-scrolling real-time-strategy game that essentially happens "on rails". The wacky cartoony graphics hide a challenging game that is deeper than appears at first glance.
Conclusion: I loooooove gold! Sure, it doesn't take long before you get tired of the chubby, gold-digging Viking lady's Aretha Franklin way of stating that she loves the metal in question, but luckily you won't get tired of the game she is walking about in.
