What would you do when someone infiltrates into your home territory and starts destroying the beautiful landscape? The kingdom that you’ve nurtured your whole life gets attacked by an alien power that’s going to ruin it and turn it to ashes. Obviously, you’d be infuriated with anger but that’s what your enemy wants. He wants you to lose your calm and take decisions that might turn against you later. What if you send whole of your army for a counter-attack in the battlefield when there are some opponent soldiers ambushed and waiting for your departure to capture the fort! So it’s better to first envisage a plan with proper strategy keeping account of your weaknesses and strengths and only then can you decide what step will be next for you. But I know what your first step will be – download IRIE Islands Defence.


Well, it’s an iOS app that I’m talking about called IRIE Islands Defence. The app has been developed by Harold Hemmings and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5.


IRIE Islands Defence is a strategy-based game where you have to build your resources, strengthen your army and be prepared for an attack from any side, any time. You are the owner of a beautiful island and living a luxurious life. But luxury comes at a cost and the fear of losing it any time is the biggest one. You’re not alone in this cruel world and there are many eyes waiting desperately to dethrone you and commence their own coronation ceremony.

The biggest power of any kingdom is its army and therefore you must build a strong force that can resist any supreme power and resilient enough to recover quickly and strongly from these sudden attacks. You have to work and in return you’ll get to choose your soldiers and weapons for them. Remember, there should be a balance of attack and defence and only then can you hope to cope with any circumstances. The map keeps you updated of all the developments taking place around your island and also helps you designing your plan. Moreover, there are many epic battles that you’d be a part of. So better be prepared for them.


You’re the owner of an island and that’s a beautiful one. This game offers some of the best exotic graphics you’d ever see in a strategy-based game. The island is well-detailed with lush green covers all over the place and mountains surrounded by sea. It’s almost as if you’re on a holiday. But don’t take these beautiful deceptive graphics to trick you as soon you’d understand that you’re wearing a crown-of-thorns. So you better start working from the very first moment you’re here.

Overall, IRIE Islands Defence is an amazing strategy-based game that’ll keep you on your toes always!

The app is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: beautiful exotic island; lush green scenery; epic battles; maps; choose weapons for your chosen soldiers; free.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
