Townsmen is a well-known strategy game that I first played on the mobile. Coming into this version I honestly thought it would just be an uprezzed mobile game. I am wrong and wrong in a big way, the game feels like a solid fully competent console game. They have made the controls work really well, the progression is layered and done in a way where you feel overwhelmed, it comes with a lof content, some of which was DLC before. The graphics look good as does the animation. Overall Townsmen is a decent strategy game and a must-own for strategy fans.
