Revolve8 has just landed on the App Store. It's a brand new RTS game developed by Sega, and we thought you might like to know as much about it as possible before you download it and give it a try.

That's why we've written this article. If you've got any questions that we haven't answered here, and you'd like us to take a punt at them, then chuck them in the comments section at the bottom of the article. By the same token, if you've played Revolve8 we'd love to hear what you thought of the game.

What is Revolve8?

It says that it's an RTS, and while all of those letters are represented here, we'd actually put it in the mobile MOBA bracket. There are definite shades of Clash Royale here - from the energy you need to use the units at your disposal, to the lane-based gameplay - basically if you're looking for a classic RTS you're going to be a bit disappointed.

How does the Revolve8 work?

You're in charge of a team on one side of the map, your opponent is in charge of a team on the other. That team is made up of a deck of cards, and it's up to you to play the right units at the right time to try and smash your foe's bases. There are three of those, but if you destroy the big central one it's game over.

Some of your characters have special moves that you can unleash when they're charged up, and the leader of your violent rabble has a one-off special that can completely change the flow of a game if you use it at the right time.

The battles are short, but they offer up a decent chunk of action. And because the size of your deck of cards is restricted, you need to make some tough choices about the units you take into battle as well.

How much does Revolve8 cost?

The game is free to download, but there are a variety of IAPs you can buy to make your progression up the ranks a bit simpler. Of course you can earn everything in the game without them, but that does mean you're setting yourself up for a good deal of grind to get to the higher echelons of the game.

Is there anything else I should know about Revolve8?

We think we've covered all the big questions here, but if you've got any pressing matters you'd like to get resolved, feel free to ask us in the comments section that's ready and waiting for you at the bottom of this paragraph.
