    "If you are looking for the best Andriod strategy game without in-app purchases, you should definitely consider Rusted Warfare - RTS Strategy. With a one-time purchase, there are no in-app purchases which is nice when considering many games these days include microtransactions. With this game there is real-time strategy that allows you to battle for victory as you command over 40 units. "

    "It says true to the game series. Many games do not. I like that you can just buy at a good price and not have a bunch of ads scrolling through. There are some improvements to be made but I think thy will be addressed in an app update. The developer seems attentive to making improvements based on feedback. "

    "I'm not a fan of space adventure especially when I have to learn to survive so I'm not too keen about this app. However, my younger sibling absolutely loves it! He plays for hours and hours. Anything that keeps his attention this long has got to be good."
