AND

The Settlers (2009), released on AND and iOS, is a mobile edition of one of the most popular series of economic strategies games known to PC users since 1993. The game is a slightly simplified version of The Settlers IV. The Settlers (2009) was developed by Gameloft in cooperation with the authors of the original - Blue Byte Software.

Mechanics

The Settlers (2009) offers proven mechanics known from the early parts of the series. Our task is to turn a small settlement into a real empire with the use of a complex chain of economic dependencies. As a rule, we start the game from placing the simplest buildings, such as a forester hut, lumberjack, fisherman, hunter or quarry. Over time, we get access to new structures that will be responsible for processing the raw materials obtained in this way. Finally, there is also the military aspect and a series of buildings that will allow us to recruit soldiers and fight hostile neighbors. The key to success is to take care of the appropriate stocks of individual resources and to plan our settlement in such a way that the production chain is as efficient as possible.

Game modes

The creators have prepared four separate campaigns for players, in which we lead four different nations: Romans, Vikings, Mayas and the mysterious Dark Tribe. The mechanics of the game are identical for each side, and the differences boil down to the different appearance of the settlers and individual structures. Unlike the fully-fledged versions, The Settlers (2009) doesn't offer "free play" mode or multiplayer options.

Technical aspects

The graphics in The Settlers (2009) are comparable to the PC version released in 2001. The settlement built by us is full of life, and during the game, we can admire the settlers who are busy with work. The Settlers (2009) is available only in the publisher's store (Gameloft Store) - the game is not offered by Google Play.
