Ratropolis is very clearly inspired by big daddy Slay the Spire, so much so that it even has a few adorable references to it inside the game. Ratropolis is no copycat though. It fuses its deckbuilding rogue-lite nature with real-time strategy and kingdom building. A combination that makes it a one of a kind game, as far as I know.
Real Time Strategy
Total War: Warhammer 2 is an incredibly massive game made even larger by an assortment of DLC. The game is played in two halves, the strategy map where you manage your empire, the city’s and units’ turn-based grand strategy style, and the real-time battles when two or more armies meet.
Sky Cannoneer is a fortress artillery game inspired by a classic game called Rampart. Every match is played out in several short phases, each lasting only around twenty seconds.
Bad North is a minimalistic and simple strategy game with fun and satisfying game mechanics. You control little squads of armed warriors on the run from an ever-approaching Viking tide. Your troops bounce from island to island on an overworld map and fight off hordes of Vikings to safeguard the houses on them.
