Machinations is a top-down real-time strategy and resource management game carefully designed to work on touchscreen mobile devices. The player takes on up to 3 devious computer opponents in a brutal battle to conquer the entire map and eventually - as the campaign progresses - the entire universe. A careful balance of upgrades, attacks and defense is necessary to crush your opposition. If this challenging enough, a variety of super weapons (like giant lasers capable of firing across the level) provide additional difficulties and opportunities, requiring careful foresight to prevent catastrophic losses. The game caters for both quick thrill seekers with a random quick challenge, and for player looking for more story with an engaging campaign showing the quest for universal domination.
