Oh, the Carnage! The Humanity! The Barbarity! Eeek!

Neat animation, neat graphics, really addictive, simple controls
Lags a bit, uses a lot of system resources, inconvenient to play on a small screen
Mini Warriors for Android had me confused with A Tiny War for a second there. Both games are similar, but A Tiny War is a little more cartoonish, while Mini Warriors has more refined animation and more violent bloodshed. So, you decide which method fits your style of mayhem best.
Mini Warriors is actually a lot of fun. You really don’t do much during the battles but watch these mini knights in shining armor throw down and die gruesome deaths, but hey, that’s the charm of this one. It’s surprisingly ruthless how these little Alexander the Great wannabes slaughter each other. Groups of warriors even work together to surround and annihilate the enemy. Factions break off, and ultimately die horrifically. There’s plenty of virtual blood spilled on this digital battlefield. In other words – what fun!!
The controls are virtually nonexistent during the battles. You can 2x and 3x the speed of the carnage if the mini warriors aren't dying fast enough for you. And naturally there are upgrades to make your warriors even better and stronger killing machines. Watching the arrows fly through the sky is cool, and zooming in and out of the battlefield is just simple pinch zoom gestures.
The game played smooth, however, it’s a little monotonous how each screen returns to the game logo as it loads. It just slows the action down. When I’m in annihilation mode, I’m out for blood and don’t want silly menus and graphics slowing me down form the carnage. How’s a guy supposed to conquer with this crap constantly getting in the way? *sigh* Ok, just nitpicking, I know. But I like to multitask while a slaughter and those menus are just holding me back.
Mini Warriors is oddly addictive and fun to watch. This would be great as a multi-player game. There’s nothing better for a friendship than going at it with virtual swords and bloodshed. Think medieval comic book with a Saturday morning cartoon spin-off. Fun!
