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

"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.

Ratings and Reviews
Remove the nerf
They nerfed the Macedonians too much
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.
