TBS (Turn-Base Strategy) game is a subgenre of strategy video games where players take their turns when playing. This is completely different from real-time strategy (RTS) where all players play the same game simultaneously. Turn based strategy is ideal for gamers with low APM (Action-Per-Minute rate) and more casual approach towards gaming.
The first TBS video games were actually converted from historic board games. After their huge success, video game companies created their own franchises based on original concepts. That’s how the best TBS games of all time were born. Titles like Sid Meier's Civilization, Panzer General, and of course the entire Heroes of Might and Magic series are well known among the players from all over the world. Fun fact:
The oldest turn-base strategy game is actually the game of chess.

Created and developed by Midway in 1992, the series quickly amassed a very big and loyal fanbase. Few people know this, but the first game was created because a different one (featuring Jean-Claude Van Damme) was canceled. Instead, Midway developed a fantasy-horror fighting game and the Mortal Kombat brand was born. The original game has spawned many sequels and has spun a massive media franchise. Currently, it consists of several action-adventure games, movies, and TV series (both live-action and animated). Other spin-offs include comic book series, a card game and even a distinct line of toys.
Mortal Kombat is currently one of the most successful fighting franchises in the history of video games (along with Street Fighter and Tekken) as well as one of the highest-grossing media franchises of all time.
It goes without saying that Mortal Kombat has a reputation for high levels of gore and violence. The finishing moves (called Fatalities) were actually one of the main reasons behind the creation of ESRB video game rating system.
Mortal Kombat is a must-have for every fighting game maniac. Brutal, thrilling and incredibly fun to play. Get your own copy on Games Republic and join the ancient tournament.Hide
