Ratings and Reviews
Avoid these Updates if you have an older iPad 4
As the title suggests, the recent updates for all HexWar games are geared for newer iPads. If you have these games running properly on your older devices it is best to leave these updates alone. Unfortunately, no consideration was given to those of us who supported these games at initial release as we are left with unplayable games, or crashes during the update install. Thanks for nothing!
Recent Fixes Ruined The Game
Recent bug "fixes" ruined this game! I have been playing this (and other hex war games) for a loooong time but Ancient Rome has been my air-travel go to. Love(d) it!
However, the recent "fixes" have broken it. First of all the graphics are worse; the units seem to have been compressed and harder to see. The unit strength levels are also much more difficult to read. A 10 looks like a 1 and 3 looks like 8.
Also, some adjacent units now cannot engage each other. In the "Defending Territory" battle the enemy doesn't even advance!
I regret downloading the patch & wish I could have the old app back. Please do a re-set!
Another awesome game
These are my favorite turn based strategy games on iOS period. Well worth the purchase. It combines strategic depth and breadth with tactical decision making and historical tie-ins. 5*s for sure.
