Empires of Sand Essential Challenges

Empires of Sand Base Management Quick Tip:
Base management is 50% of the challenge.  Upgrading your buildings will give you stronger units and towers in the tower defense potion of the game.  Always spend your gold and stone before you put the game down, so that when you are not playing, those coffers can refill.  

Tower Defense App is what Empires of Sand is about
The tower defense portion of Empires of Sand is where the game amazes, one of the best experiences of any Tower Defense Apps available.  A player must consider speed, armor type, and attack type of the towers you build and units you send against your enemy when you play Empires game.  Definitely check out all our video tips for details on how to win.

Resource Management a constant Challenge
Empires of Sand base building requires you manage stone and gold carefully to unlock the best units and towers.  In battle ensuring you have a constant flow of prayer power will secure victory.  Be sure to erect enough Prayer Towers alongside more defensive towers.  Eventually you will save up enough power to launch a devastating attack on your enemy’s tower defenses.

Fantastic Theme, Art, and Style
When you play Empires of Sand, you feel the theme.  Unit and tower designs, dialogue, sandy environments, and strong sound design, all come together to create a cohesive and solid game.

Building one more tower, collecting prayer power, and cheering your units on against the enemy’s defenses creates a fun gameplay loop.  Empires of Sand rises above other Tower Defense Apps.  

Satisfying Progression
Playing Empires of Sand, in both Tower Defense and Base Management modes provides a constant stream of rewards.  Units get bigger and better, defensive towers grow stronger and taller, all at a fun pace.  Seeing those wood, gold, and prayer points collect just feels so good in this empires game.

Frequently Asked Questions by Users about Empires of Sand

What is the best platform to play Empires of Sand on?
An iPad with retina screen is the best experience, the gorgeous hand drawn visuals come to life, and the larger screen is great for seeing the whole empires game.  The game plays well on Android and iPhone too.

Is PvP in real time or turn by turn?
Empires of Sand actually supports both:
Turn based or Asynchronous- You build up your city defenses, or choose to raid another player’s base for resources. This fits well into the tower defense gameplay, and separates the building and attacking modes. 
Real Time Strategy or Player vs. Player - connect to another player, and build out your own tower defense on the fly while sending units to attack.  Speed is very important to the gameplay here just like in any Tower Defense app.

What should I upgrade first?
For towers, upgrade either Arrows or Magic.  You want to deal as much damage as possible on the field. For your city focus on upgrading your stone and gold coffers and quarries. The more resources you can hold and gather the faster you can upgrade everything else in the empires game.
