Witching Hour Studios presents RAVENMARK: Scourge of Estellion, a refreshing take on turn-based strategy set in the completely original world of Eclisse.
Driven by an epic tale of conquest and redemption, the single-player battles and cutscenes of RAVENMARK are gorgeously rendered in lovingly hand-painted 2D. Feel the sound and fury of war as you dig into the most satisfying strategy experience iOS has to offer!
THE SCOURGE OF ESTELLION
In a land known as Eclisse, where a great sun and three moons rule the azure skies, the ruling Empire of Estellion is beset by a great scourge from their past – the sun-eating mystics from the forgotten nation of Kaysan. Follow the mark of the raven and the heroes who march under its dark wings, as they struggle to survive under the weight of ruthless ambition and political intrigue!
DYNAMIC TURN-BASED COMBAT
In RAVENMARK, nothing matters more than strategic troop placement! Command an army to fight in campaign battles, where a round of combat begins with the Command Phase to issue instructions, but no action is taken until the Battle Phase, where friend and foe can act and attack simultaneously… Plan your moves carefully to emerge victorious against the challenging A.I. in each mission.
DOMINATE BATTLES THROUGH THE TOUCH INTERFACE
Explore a myriad of tactics at your fingertips with intuitive touch controls and unique management systems, like the Formation system: Group up to three units of a kind into a single formation, which enables special abilities and buffs to crush enemies quicker. The Standing Order system offers A.I. assisted commands that address the headaches of micro-managing the entire army every round. Use these tools to develop your own novel strategies and overcome the odds!
THE SYMPHONY OF WAR
A rousing cinematic soundtrack underscores the tension and drama that unfolds in the battlefields of RAVENMARK. Composed by Josh Whelchel, lauded for his work with Castle Story and Wind-up Knight, the music will immerse you ever deeper into the world of Eclisse!
A VAST LORE TO EXPLORE
Venture into the Codex, an in-game encyclopedia which documents the richly storied history and cultures of Eclisse. Unlock new entries as you progress through the campaigns and encounter new nations, characters, locales and more!

My favorite game on ios
This game has survived on my phone for two years now and has provided so many hours of satisfying tactical strategy fun. Honestly if there was a rating above 5 stars this game would get it. This game is a labor of love from some indie developers who are determined to make high quality games that do not try to nickel and dime you. Ravenmark presents a deep and satisfying tactical experience while also providing some fantastic world building and story telling. This is the best money I have spent on the App Store. Do yourself a favor and also check out the multiplayer Ravenmark: Mercenaries
An original, well-made strategy game
This is a great, totally original strategy game with a rich world, characters and gameplay. Think of it as a lost PS2 era game for just a couple of bucks.
Unfortunately, many of the last era's bad features came with the good--notably, very irritating AI for your troops (expect them to stand still when a unit you ordered them to attack dies, or move randomly half-way to where you ordered them to and then stop), and the lack of a save feature means you'll have to start a 20-minute level over again if one of your hero units dies (which means high-risk, high-reward innovative strategies are a disaster.)
My first strategy game was Chess, then battletech, then Dune 2, Warcraft, then Risk type games.
Battletech really stands out to me because of the individual unit level tactics you need to apply to the battle which can affect the whole strategy of the war.
Similar here, you don't just "sprout" units from a factory. You fight with what you have. Well scripted stuff.
Was introduced to this game by Ravenmark Mercenaries. I like them both.
