Since it’s inception, the works of J. R. R. Tolkien’s world of Middle Earth have inspired countless other works of fiction. Halfling Wars is the latest of these games that focuses on one of the more unusual races of Middle Earth; the Halfling.
Created by ChondroStrike, Halfling Wars is a free-to-play fantasy RPG/simulation game for iOS devices. Taking control of a lone Halfling (or Darkling), it’s your job to build up your realm, conquering neighbouring villages while protecting your own from enemy attacks. You achieve this by creating, raising, mutating and breeding powerful magical creatures, and sending them to do battle with your foes, or even your friends online.
Halfling Wars has already enjoyed a successful Kickstarter campaign that concluded on January 28th. Since then, the ChondroStrike team have been hard at work preparing the game for its planned release. While the opportunity to receive some of the Kickstarter bonuses, such beta access, a copy of the soundtrack and access to the private discussion forums have been and gone, there’s still the game’s free-to-play release to look forward to.
