Undersky: The Eternal Saga, from the development studio SteamWarShip and published by Renatus Media LLC, is a new and exciting kingdom building game for iPhone and iPad.

Featuring plenty of gameplay aspects and tons of unique things to do, this is the perfect game for anyone looking to immerse themselves in a world free from earth’s grasp.

Concept and Gameplay:

Those who have played intricate world build games are sure to fall in love with Undersky: The Eternal Saga. Thankfully the in-depth tutorial serves as a great guide for new users, leading them through almost every aspect of the game in a clean and informative way.

The idea of the game is to build and manage your sky-bound kingdom and every bit of it, from fending off bad guys to maintaining your army and building a sustaining village for your people.

From what I could tell, Undersky: The Eternal Saga focuses quite a bit on the battle aspect of the game. Fights are unique in that it’s not just hack-and-slash; users have to actually strategically place units on the battlefield and plan attacks based on where their units appear in the turn-based attack order.

This is definitely something I’ve never seen before in a game like Undersky, and it really does add a new twist to a game genre that tends to be fairly generic.

Undersky: The Eternal Saga isn’t all about fighting, though. As you build your village, you can collect good that each building produces over time. While Undersky has a ton of great things that players can do, it can get quite overwhelming even after completing the tutorial.

Unfortunately this could be a big downside for players who are just looking for a simple game to play, but those who enjoy intricate games will certainly find Undersky to be their cup of tea.

Along with a helpful tutorial, outstanding graphics, and plenty of things to do, Undersky: The Eternal Saga has even more features that make it an exciting game.

Along with generic post-battle loot like coin and experience, players can collect cards that grant special attributes when combined. There are 54 card in all to collect.

Lastly, Undersky: The Eternal Saga is designed to give players endless gameplay time, meaning there really isn’t an “end game” unless you decide to start your kingdom from scratch.

The world you create evolves as you spend time in it, and the more you play, the more dynamic it becomes.

Value: 

Undersky: The Eternal Saga can be downloaded from the App Store for free and is compatible with both iPad and iPhone.

Currently the only in-app purchase you can buy is a pack of 1,000 crystals for $5.99. We have nothing against a six dollar IAP but we do like to see some less expensive options for folks who are just getting started or just don’t want to spring for six bucks. Keep that in mind, if it works for you, great. Else you may want to wait awhile until smaller quantities are available seeing as the price is a little high.
