Review Iron Desert

Kevin Vadala
Fun gun effects
Feels like Clash of Clans but worse, boring, microtransactions
Iron Desert for Android is another base building game where you can attack other players and AI units. The game revolves around a very similar menu system (compared to other base building games) where you accomplish goals, upgrade your base, and either spend your time waiting for buildings to be constructed or simply pay for them with real money.
Iron Desert is a game that seems so generic it’s almost odd. It’s starting to get hard for me to tell the difference between these Clash of Clans clones simply from screenshots alone. They all have the exact same art style that blends cartoon with bright colorful shading.
The game starts you out immediately with a battle. This game actually seems more focused on battles than other clones, but the battles still play out the same. You tap to release units. And then when the battle plays out your units attack and the only real strategy is watching your units auto-attack a base that more often than not looks very similar to each one you decide to attack. I only found attacking the base fun when I thought about my little army that I had constructed. It was satisfying to see my 10 or so cars all attacking at once and simply mowing things down. They lit up a building and the fire sounded like ten machine guns at once - which was fun to listen to.
Another thing I noticed that was slightly different about the game is that one at your base, army units patrol around and your base is more like an actual base that can be attacked in a live manner. Battles don’t really enter an instance when they come to you, and it actually feels like people (or mostly computers) are attacking your base.
Iron Desert is a very run-of-the-mill Clash of Clans clone. If you are a fan of the genre, I can’t say you will unveil any fantastic surprises or game breaking disappointments.
