Customer Reviews

Love the play - not the purchases

Brilliant game. Exactly my tastes, I love it, and so do many other people! But I think those people would also agree that the purchases are quite greedy. I mean, you hardly unlock ANY maps until you spend £3 to buy them all... ...I'm not going to buy that. However, if they were both £0.69 then I would buy them both and maybe even the customise one! In fact, you would probably get more money in that you did before if you also added another map pack. I don't know if you can change them now, but... ...if you can, please do.

Used to be good... before updates.

After coming back to this, I guess they have heavily updated the game, adding a ridiculous fog of war feature from which your units can't see more than one hex in front of them. Not only that, but you can't see what the AI is doing, however it seems to know everything you are doing. If you start the game buying men, the AI will buy tanks. If you restart and buy a tank killer, the AI will buy bazookas. And you can't see them until they are right upon you and have destroyed your units. What's worse, there's not even an option to switch fog of war off. Please fix the game!

This is great

Haha, the black screen bug is fixed :)
Now this game is one of the best on the app store! (where it belongs). The humour is hilarious (especially the in-game unit comments), the maps are well balanced and the 50 mission campaign is truly awesome...still haven't finished it yet but am on mission 46 ;).
Not sure why you are reading this review, when you might as well just play it and find out!
