Ancient Battle: Alexander delivers a unique wargaming experience on iPhone and iPad. Use Macedonian Phalangites, Greek Hoplites, Indian Elephants, Scythed Chariots, Persian Cavalry, Catapults, Archers, Slingers, and many other unit types to engage in classic battles.

Based upon, and a major upgrade to, the game system developed for Ancient Battle: Rome. A game that was the No.1 strategy game on the App Store in 8 countries and reviews included:

"Hunted Cow’s best wargame yet" - Pocket Tactics

"Delivers everything one can expect from a strategy title" - Arcade Sushi

"Smart, challenging, and surprisingly substantial strategy game" - Pocket Gamer

Included in this version are three campaigns that allow you to refight Alexander’s battles in and around Greece and Macedonia, including the battle of Chaeronea.

The second campaign follows his push to conquer the Achaemenid Persian Empire, while having to deal with rebellious Spartans in Greece. Finally Alexander’s campaign in India, ending in the epic battle of Hydaspes, with the Macedonian Pike Phalanx versus the masses of Indian Elephants.

Major game system improvements on Ancient Battle: Rome include improved A.I., improved combat analysis system, better flank attack logic, better line of sight logic, Elephant Generals, and Greek Hoplites.

iCloud save will be part of a future upgrade so that you can continue playing the same battle across multiple devices.

Ratings and Reviews



This game is a piece of trash

Superb hex strategy


Thanks for the update! I enjoyed the new campaign. I also appreciate the added transparency in the calculations. Would still love to see a play by email feature! 4.5 stars!


Still great game (see below)... I hope I found a bug: I started on the opposition campaign and found that I couldn't kill Alexander. His unit would fall leaving him behind and I couldn't target him. Surely that's not on purpose.


This is a very strong game. It's well polished and accomplishes what it advertises.
As a game nerd, I personally would like to have a link to a document where I can read the actual rules being used to calculate move possibilities and engagement outcomes.
Also, the AI is fairly weak. It would be awesome if they could incorporate some kind of play by email feature.

Oh yeah, I'd pay real money for a campaign editor.

A God Send!


As for Hunted Cow Studios,I just want to say thank you for creating these types of games. I have not encountered not one single game, in the App Store for iPhone that can come close to what y'all are doing. I am a huge fan and was delighted when the 1st Civil War game came out. You have no idea how long I aimlessly searched the App Store for these sort of games and finally my prayers were answered and now y'all have a large variety of similar games. Thank you Hunted Cow Studios
