Today’s free App New World Colony is a digital board game where you battle for control of territory and resources. In order to win you will need to build and upgrade structures, trade, construct defenses, and outwit your opponent.
Each decision must be weighed carefully. Do you expand your colony’s borders so that you can reach valuable gold and minerals? Or do you build a fort so that you can capture a nearby farm from an opponent? Or construct a shipyard so you can sneak past your opponent’s fortifications? On top of that, you’ll need to monitor and defend clusters of connected territories in order to maintain your advantage. Finding the perfect balance is a challenge but is also key to victory.
It is a fun and fast strategy game with randomly generated maps, challenging computer AI, turn-based online multiplayer and a wide range of game settings. Be prepared to sink countless hours into this game as you perfect your tactics!
Games take place on a map teeming with fields, forests, mountains and lakes. Starting with a single territory and a handful of resources, you must build a dominant colony by settling new land and constructing sawmills, granaries, mines, shipyards, and trading posts. You can also establish new towns, and with a strong economy you will eventually be able to upgrade them with imposing forts and strongholds. Your colony will grow in size and power with every turn – if you make the right decisions.
However, your opponents are striving to build colonies of their own. You will find yourself constantly battling with other players over precious resources and territories, so you must decide whether to aggressively capture their lands or hold back and play defensively. Opponents will be looking to take over your territories and structures as well, so you must build strategic walls to keep them at bay.
