The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth
The Hobbit: Kingdoms of Middle-Earth is a build your kingdom strategy game that can be played on iPod, Android, or any other portable device that can download apps. The game is pretty much the same game as Evony, Travian, Kingdom of Camelot, and all those other games. The only difference is that this game has been adapted to a Lord of the Rings theme. While I have read multiple reviews of people saying they did not like the game, it's just a copy, it's too hard, I think that if you know how to play the game and have friends to play it with, it can be a ton of fun.
If you have never played a game like Evony or Travian, it is a strategy game in which you make a city, build buildings and things inside the city, build resource production centers outside the city, and build up your resources so that you can attack other cities.
How to Play
The goal of the game is to get the most might, which is gained through building defensive and offensive troops. You can choose to be either dwarves or elves, it is pretty much up to personal preference since there is no real differences between the two besides the appearance of the city. But before you can build troops, you need resources. On the outside of your city there are spots where you can build farms, arboretums, quarries, and ore veins, which produce food, wood, stone, and ore. These resources can also be used to build other buildings inside the city like barracks (which produce troops), homes (which raise your population, keep (which protects your resources in case of attack), and lots of other buildings.
