The Bluecoats - North vs South, colorful strategy!
_____________ PRESS REVIEWS _____________
"What better subject for a French studio to make a strategy game about than the US civil war? This remake puts a modern spin on the classic 1990 tactical title."
“This game is a mix of Age of Empires and the Oregon Trail, but with a heck of a lot more action.”
“[…] See for yourself how great this iPhone/iPad game is ! ”
“A revival in the truest sense, Bluecoats keeps the best elements of the original, replaces parts that begged for overhaul, and wraps the altered formula in a much prettier package. If I had to choose one version to show off as an example of the true potential of genre mashups, it would undoubtedly be this one.”
“If you’re generally a fan of strategy games and have at least a passing interest in action, you’ll find lots to love in Bluecoats’ three-way mashup. The game’s greatest failing is simply that it lets you jump in on normal difficulty — it’s utterly clear that you need to move up the challenge ladder starting from the very bottom.”
“For small sessions it does a solid job of making you think on your feet. The iOS version makes far more sense to buy than the PC, and iPad owners will probably get the best out of it. The mini games certainly make for an unusually mixed strategy experience, just make sure not to get too good at the shooting and turn the difficulty up!”
In the colorful strategy game The Bluecoats - North vs South, you play the head of one of the armies of the Civil War. Your aim is to conquer American territory !

Ratings and Reviews
Great Classic - but remake is a little buggy.
North & South. Back in the days of the Amiga 500 this was a neat little strategy game.
This remake is ok - it brought back many fun memories although something of the magic is lost.
Perhaps it's the more polished graphics? Or maybe because the original sound effects are gone?
I vaguely remember needing to hold the space bar down to build the range of the cannons and riffles in battles.
Now you just click the enemy unit to attack and the job is done.
However. The only reason I rated 3 stars is because the game crashed out whilst I was trying to take the enemy train.
Or rather, it just went on, and on, and on, and on. Certainly a horse would not be able to keep up with a train for that long!
Hopefully the bug will get fixed - or shall I say "at £7 it bloody well ought to be sorted out!"
waste of money
Boring and a total rip off had better games free
