Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon Gameplay Review

I'm playing Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon, a side-scrolling real-time strategy game by Ronimo Games.


The game features a story-based campaign mode, online play, and custom games against the AI or a local opponent. The three factions provide a good mix of units and spells, or you can create a custom faction using any item combination. Gold (collected by workers from mines, or from blocks scattered around the map) is used to unlock and purchase new units and buildings, while mana (collected differently for each faction, but also in block form) is used to cast spells. Units automatically move across the map and attack, so the timing of unit production (making sure a mass of units arrive at the enemy base at the same time) and proper use of spells to support an attack determines the victor. The game is very approachable but still allows for strategic variety (which units to unlock, when to attack, save up or spend, focus on defensive structure or more units). Swords and Soldiers 2 Shawarmageddon, like the original game, widens the appeal of the real-time strategy game by offering a fast, action-packed title that’s easy to learn.
