Description

Lead Wars is a turn-based strategy game requiring smart thinking and physical skill. It simulates the real life paper war games played in the days before portable gaming devices which needed only a pencil, some paper and lots of imagination!

• Charted #1 Strategy Game in 23 countries!

You control a fleet of planes, tanks and artillery units by taking turns to flick a pencil around a hand-drawn battlefield on a piece of paper, making long curve shots and strategic moves to try and outwit and out-skill your opponent.

Reviews:

• GamePro.com - iOS Game Of The Day - "Surprisingly deep", "From a strategic perspective, Lead Wars is a beautiful achievement." 4/5
• TouchReviews.net - "You'll definitely love this game." 4/5
• PadGadget.com - PadGadget Recommended! "Some battle are easily solved puzzles, while other start to feel more like chess games." 4/5
• iPhone-Experience.com - "a brilliantly implemented game"
• iTunes review - djflippy: "Lead Wars has a rare quality; the simulation is actually better than that which it simulates." 5/5

Note this is not your typical path-drawing game - this is a simulation of the real life game played with a real pencil.

The flick mechanic works just like it does in real life (try it!): Point a pencil straight down onto some paper, holding it by the top with just one finger. While pressing down firmly, slowly tilt the top of the pencil - beyond a critical angle the tip will suddenly slip away leaving a line drawn on the paper. This line determines your move or shot on the battlefield.

Lead Wars simulates this mechanic using the touch-screen as if you're touching the top of a real pencil. See videos of the real life game and Lead Wars in action: http://www.youtube.com/DemonStudiosLtd

The best thing about playing Lead Wars on your iOS device though is you're not having to rub out your previous moves, there's no arguments whether a shot hit or not and no dangerous flying pencils! The physical dexterity required to make your move makes the game challenging but ultimately more fun and rewarding, particularly when you make that near-impossible curve shot around a wall to win the battle!

Customer Reviews

Love it!!! More please.

Love this pencil and paper based strategy game. I've gone through the Campaign twice. And, I'll keep doing it to improve my execution so I'll be ready for new levels when released!

Fantastic strategy game with a twist

I recommend this to anyone that likes strategy games and wants something a little different. The dev keeps updating it too, though its a solid game as is.

Good could be better

It would be a great game but the whole pencil sliding thing to move it is annoying and frankly too hard. I usually mess up 90% of moves that are meant to curve or be longer.
