Epic is the latest movie from CG movie manufacturer Blue Sky Studios, which had previously brought you titles such as Robots, Rio, and Ice Age. It’s also the name of a tie-in strategy/builder game, with a few battle elements thrown in, made by the folks at Gameloft. You have to produce resources, wait for them to be created, collect them, then use them to build more essential but expendable elements. You make Nectar, you collect it in a Nectar Reservoir, and you use it to produce Leafmen, who fight your battles for you. You place the Leafmen you would like to use into a formation before attacking some creatures called Boggans. I haven’t seen the movie, so I’m assuming Boggans are bad, and you spend your time in the battling element of the game wiping them out. After a quick battle, the outcome of which determined by mathematical equations (and a bit of luck), you head back to the construction stage of the game.You then repeat this process, ticking off missions as you go along, which moves the super thin story along. You can also buy extra plots of land to expand the area you can build on.
