    I'm a console player for a very long time. (Started with Sega Genesis/Saturn). Now I'm considering mobile gaming and of course, strategy games. I was wondering what Strategy Game should I get? Kingdom of Legend is my first game since I love strategy games. I can shell out some cash though if needed but this is nice since it is a free-to-play game. I discovered Kingdom of Legend in this forum.

    Newbie seeking for games to play. Please help :)

    "Smartphone" isn't 100% descriptive, are we talking about Android, iOS, Windows Phone or something else entirely? :)

    Thats a poor transition as most games for mobile are unlike games you experience on console, pc, or handheld. Thats not to say the games aren't good, but when you call yourself a console gamer, then the type of games you get on mobile are unlike anything you might be expecting.

    PC, Console, and Handheld offer rich, diverse, and expansive experiences, while mobile games are basically mini games revolved around a basic repeatable mechanic, turned into endless grind fest, designed to siphon money from you directly or indirectly through ad revenue. Mobile gaming is a buisness modile that rewards to lazy and exploitative developers. With the exception of a few, the best mobile games are ports of console and handheld games.

    Don't mean to be the mustard race guy here but you can find tons of quality strategy-based games on PC, and probably on consoles too. I can guarantee you whatever they are will be better than some free-to-play trash you find on the app store.

    I assume that's what you're asking, your post is kind of vague.

    I have been using ePSXe on Android and play Doom from the PS1, I like that version lol (I know, I know the PC version has 10,000 mods and all that...)

    The only game I ever got into mods was the original Unreal Tournament... (I wonder how that would run on Android, or if it's even possible?)

    I miss running that game on my VooDoo2 and Voodoo 5500... So much fun :)

    I remember having some kind of single player Unreal game that was really fun, never played Unreal Tournament however

    the best phone for gamers i have found that the sony xpieria play is the best as it has an integrated joystick. It is really comfortable when it comes to games buuuut the biggest issue with it is that not much games support it which is a total shame
