Absolutely worth buying
There's always a slight temptation to give one star to apps that ask for a review in a pop-up, but I find this less egregious in games and in the case of indie devs (though I'd still prefer a more passive request than pop-ups).
Looking past that, Warbits is top notch. The power chips are a neat way to implement something akin to Advance Wars' CO Powers (something often missing from the games that it inspired), and being able to pick from any means there's a dizzying array of factors to account for when battling your opponent. And with a few new units that don't really have analogs in the source material, Risky Lab took the time to design a game that is delightfully familiar without being a lazy imitation.
Bought it for myself and gifted two copies to friends. Easily worth it.
I know a lot of reviews say this, but this game is just like advanced wars. However this game does have the unique mechanic of charges instead of the CO powers which makes the matches a lot more even since every team can do the same things. You can use the charges to suit your play style and since there are so many charge abilities theres always one that works best no matter what situation you are in. It also is very smooth and I have yet to run into any glitches at all. The only thing that I really would want added to this is a map maker which would add endless amounts of extra content. Overall its very good and relies entirely on good strategy and getting the best use out of your charges.
Miss Advance Wars? This is the game for YOU
I grew up on gameboy handhelds and to this day the one game I miss is the advance wars series. Warbits has a similar style and feel, but the units are distinct enough that it feels like a new game. If you have never played the series, warbits is worth your time just on the writing alone. I lost track of how many times I've laughed out loud (in the literal sense) because of the writing and I'm always sending screenshots to friends. I haven't dabbled in online play or challenge mode yet but if it's even 10% as good as the campaign then I would say this is the best value you'll find in a strategy game. My only desire is that they optimize the game for iPhone X, but that's just nitpicking at this point.
