Iron Marines, the latest game from Ironhide Game Studio, those folks best known for creating the Kingdom Rush franchise, is now out on Android.

While the Kingdom Rush games — three in total — were among the best tower defense games money could buy, it looks like Iron Marines has a much bigger strategy element to it.

There are still elements taken from the Kingdom Rush series, including player-controlled “Heroes,” one of which is Fate: an exclusive hero you can only get if you play the game within its first two days of release.

Iron Marines is set in space, and sees you playing the leader of the titular marines. Like Kingdom Rush and most RTS games, you have a stable of units that include snipers, giant robots and what have you. It looks engaging, deep and just quirky enough to belong alongside the Kingdom Rush games.

You can check out the trailer for the game below. Destination Android will have a full review of Iron Marines in the coming days, as we’re just diving in now.

Iron Marines is $4.99 on Google Play.
