Frozen Islands

Things aren't going so well for the locals when a bunch of frost giants show up and take over, freezing everyone solid. Luckily, a group of vikings has returned home just in time, and with your help, you'll be able to free them all in Deqaf Studios' Frozen Islands, which combines action with light strategy and defense elements. You'll form your viking army out of the units you have available and then sally forth against an island under frost giant control. Your troops will fight automatically as they go, but you can help them out by triggering their special attacks and launching support from the ship when your timers are full. If they succeed, the island will come under your control, allowing you to tax its inhabitants (not too much or they'll riot!), as well as earn glory and cash to upgrade your army and its capabilities. Some islands are even holding your companions hostage, and by freeing them, you'll be able to add them (and thus their unit type) to your army. Though its mechanics are simple, knowing how to configure your army and when to activate their abilities are the difference between great victory and crushing loss... though even if you do lose, just try again, especially since you keep any gold you earned before you were killed. It's a fairly simple concept, though the different unit types and their abilities make it more than just a game of numbers, though it still might not have enough depth if you're looking for a really meaty strategy game to massage your brain. If you want something more casual, however, Frozen Islands might just be your cup of tea. ... do vikings drink tea? Mead?... eh, just drink it out of the skull of an enemy and you'll be fine.

Although it's tempting to want to have a varied army, I've had more success by focusing on a single type, the sword-wielding Viking. Upgrade it each time you get a chance, along with your long range attacks.

I was trying to have a varied army, but then I settled on the easier-to-manage and thus far way more effective strategy of "If I can't beat it with a horde of Chieftains, get better Chieftains."

any ideas on the ideal combination to beat level 14-30? all my bearded men are maxed out, and i can't seem to find the right mix to kick ice giant butt. :P

you know what's weird? i totally beat the level 50 guy, and level 14-30 still escapes me. grr.

Apparently when you take too much in taxes, an island will level down until it's level 1, where it'll just stop producing gold. You can't replay the level and re-conquor the island.

Since the boss doesn't give gold or add to the villagers' happiness levels, you have to avoid completing a normal island if you want to max out everything. Of course, the boss is easier than the last normal island, so getting into an unwinnable state isn't really an issue.

I must say this game i quite addicting. Even though some grinding is required it is still enjoyable. I just wish there was a fast forward button while fighting enemies like a 2x speed or 4x maybe.
