"Bag 'em & Tag 'em"
What's New in Version 1.4.1
* Fix for the flag drawing that broke with the last update. Sorry about that hiccup.
Excellent turn based strategy game
This game is very well done and surprised me greatly. I turned off most of the annoying sounds and animations which had initially turned me off.
Underneath the cheesy animations is a rich turn based strategy game a la the old SSI computer games like panzer general. In fact, its the best replica of that genre that I have found on the app store yet, and trust me, I've downloaded and discarded quite a few.
I've played about 15 levels of the campaign so far and I've noticed a few things:
The gameplay on medium is appropriately challenging on most levels, only a few are way easy. The AI is pretty good, not amazing.
The maps are varied and interesting in campaign. It's like an encyclopedia of war gaming scenarios (conquest, capture the flag, escape, survive, defend, etc.).
The balance of classes allows for good strategy and tactics.
Great game, good job, well worth the money! I'm hooked.
Most in depth app I've ever played
The amount of care and work that was put into this fantastic and challenging game speaks for itself, in its massive campaign length, which awards you battle points for completing missions, which you then use to unlock upgrades for your troops to fit your play style, infantry, tanks, ships and helicopters, allowing for a replayability factor that most games like this wouldn't have! On top of that it also has multiplayer aspects, to challenge your friends over the AI. Further in game customization ( for a low additional fee ) make this game go above and beyond, it's impossible to not be satisfied in this game with its laughable humor and fun gameplay mechanics.
This game is fun but suffers from bugs on some maps. I've had long standing games ruined because my moves were not registered, or units behaved erratically, or opponents given an advantage in purchase power for quirky reasons.
Another problem is maps can be inherently flawed, in that player 1 will always win if following pre set moves to which there is no defense. The experience players are well aware of this.
The game has a website and bulletin board to discuss strategy and report bugs. Not many players on it as far as I could tell, and I never got feedback from the developers on reporting bugs.
For the money, I got hours and hours of entertainment however, so Ill give it a 2 despite its flaws. I'm moving on to a different game due to some of the frustration I've experienced. Perhaps in the future Ill check back and see if they've updated and fixed some of the problems.
