Tiny Empire is a one-touch control physics puzzle game featuring gorgeous 16-bit aesthetics, epic soundtrack and challenging levels carefully designed with fun in mind. In each level the player must aim and shoot the cannon. Accuracy and timing is of utmost importance: ammo is limited and there are three kinds of projectiles with varying explosion radius. The game has excellent tutorials and a smooth learning curve, you will go from blasting stationary Orcs to shooting moving Beholders in the eye in no time! At the end of each stage the player will be ranked on the classic three-star rating system based on how many enemies he killed and allied/hostages he did not.



Tiny Empire é um physics-puzzle com controles simples de um só toque e apresenta uma estética deslumbrante remetendo aos grandes artistas da era 16-bit, uma trilha sonora épica e fases divertidas, meticulosamente projetadas e muito gratificantes. Para avançar para o próximo nível o jogador deve manejar o canhão com muita habilidade. Mas só saber mirar não basta: nas fases mais avançadas é necessário atirar no momento certo também. Tudo isso é apresentado aos poucos através de tutoriais bem colocados em uma curva de aprendizado suave e divertida. Em pouco tempo os ágeis Beholders voadores cairão tão fácil quanto os pobres Orcs, bobos demais para se mexerem. Ao final de cada fase o jogador receberá de uma a três estrelas, dependendo do número de inimigos que eliminou e quantos aliados poupou.


  • EXPLORE THE KINGDOM on a vast map filled with more than 80 levels!
  • DEFEAT SAVAGE CREATURES such as beholders, stone golems, crow riders, and many more!
