What's New in Version 1.13
Fixes issues to be compatible with iOS 9.
Simple stuff like not being able to flank unless you have a giant free area, veteran units still getting wiped by non vet units, basic stuff that you should be able to use to win fights is poorly or not implemented.
Especially the flanking is horrible. The whole concept of the Roman cohort was to allow units to be flexible and take advantage of opportunity but in this game you need a square mile of empty space to maneuver.
Musket smoke got it right this game is just frustrating.
This game rewards the player that can come with a plan to quickly group forces and aggressively hit the AI's army before it groups its own forces. Don't wait for trouble!
Hunted Cow does a good job integrating the strengths and weaknesses of dozens of unit types relative to each other and to the terrain. The gaming system is easy to learn but that doesn't mean the game itself is simple.
First level is impossible
So I was playing the game, enjoying it, and I was excited because I had just about destroyed 50% of the army, I only had to kill one more unit until I won then as it was my turn, words came up on the screen "enemy reinforcements have arrived" as a hoard of guys come pouring out of the forest, wiping me out, and making me rage quit.
