Sorry, I put this in the wrong thread.  Could someone move this to Computer Wargaming?

The game description seems quite unappealing.

Pretty much read all the Conan books, doesn't seem to have anything to do with the source material. Looks like tower defense with a Conan figure thrown in, and maybe some familiar place names.

It sounds and looks like a mobile game. Bah.

Which of course is where my joke came from. ;)
ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

I read a number of the books.  While I enjoyed them, I'm not sure that "Conan" and "strategy" really belong in the same sentence.

That said, if the game play is good, I don't really care if I'm Peter Rabbit fighting a horde of Nazi Dinosaurs.

Which sounds awesome!

And as it happens, there is a first-person shooter called Dino D-day, featuring Nazi dinosaurs released to repel Overlord. If you're wearing a bunny costume while playing it, then SEEK SOME PROFESSIONAL HELP IMMEDIATELY FOR GOD'S SAKE!  :hide:
