Age of War 2 is a challenging online strategy game that comprises the best of two playing styles: Tower defense and all-out attack. Your mission is two-fold: Defend your base (fortress) against the enemy and try to do some damage to their base. To win, you must successfully conquer their fortress. You must control infantry, build up your stronghold, and strategically form a plan of action to attack your enemies' base.
This unusual war game will really get you thinking strategically as you build and develop your defense while sending troops out to attack your opponent. This isn’t the average war-style game, it equally employs both defense and attack elements. It’s also a cool history lesson; As the game progresses, the troops and castles develop through the different Ages – from cavemen, to Egypt, to modern soldiers. Your fortress must be strong enough to survive the onslaught from your enemies, while your army must be diverse and powerful enough to launch a sustained attack on the enemy base.
Your multi-tasking skills will also come into play, as you have to plan out your strategy on both fronts. Earn XP points and virtual Gold coins as you go along to upgrade your army. Improve your fortress with battalion upgrades and send out bigger and better soldiers. Think you’ve got the strategic knowledge to succeed? Let’s see what you’ve got General!
