Strategies are games for those who like to think, think a few steps ahead and plan tactical moves with a preview of possible consequences. Such games are popular in mobile versions, because they help to pass the time in any situation (in transport, queue, at home on vacation, etc.).

Strategies are not just puzzles that become more complex from level to level. They can have a story, an extensive branch of quests and even the possibility to get together in teams and fight the battles of the opponents. Most often these games have military charm: battles and entire wars, thinking tactical actions in several moves ahead, gaining the trust of allies, deceiving your enemies and trying to subdue them...

Actions of such games can take place anywhere in the world (real and imaginary), so a mandatory element in them is a map: it can visualize the situation and on the basis of this assessment to think about the next move. If the game is a team game, you need to take into account the ideas and plans of other participants, learn to negotiate, soberly assess their strengths.

Strategies not only entertain in their free time, but also train thinking, logic, foresight and communication. Often this is added to the spirit of adventure, beautiful visuals and interesting legend, from which players are repelled. Below are the top rich and exciting mobile strategies on Android, which are very popular among fans of the genre.
