Ancient Battle: Successors is the latest edition to the Ancient Battle series for iPhone and iPad. Alexander the Great died on 13 June 323 B.C., leaving no heir. Perhaps foreseeing the many great conflicts that would follow his demise, he left the Macedonian Kingdom 'To the best man'. These lands, spanning most of the known world, were divided between his former generals, who saw themselves as rightful Successors (or 'Diadochi') to the Kingdom. The Successors plunged into a maelstrom of epic conflict as they fought for power and glory. Now you have the opportunity to reign supreme over your rivals, if you can first defeat them on the battlefield. Use units such as Greek Pikemen, Macedonian Pikemen, Spearmen, Archers, Indian Elephants, Chariots, Cavalry, and Javelinmen to engage in some of the largest battles of the ancient world.

This is the most comprehensive and accurate Ancient Battle system on the Apple App Store.

Ratings and Reviews

Op pikes


Honestly, this is ur worst ancient one yet. The pike phalanxes are way overpowered. In the open they crush everything. Even if you attack them in terrain they are still almost as good as ur troops. In history, the legionnaires defeated the pikemen in most battles. I think u need to make it so that if pikemen are ever outflanked or in the forest, the positive effect of the pikes leaves, AND there is some sort of negative effect. In real life, when outflanked the phalanxes totally collapsed, in your game they still get a bonus for their spears. I love ur other games, but I would like to see some changes to this one.

Good Strategy Game

The real sugar pants

Operates like the old time hexagonal board strategy games, only you don't need to spend hours reading the rules. The game takes care of movement and combat resolution. You just to develop strategy. Plus, it's cool to learn about ancient tactics.



Some of the battles are darn near impossible as you have no room for error before time runs out on a battle and it takes a long time to beat the level (even on easy) as there is no room for one wasted turn as there is only enough time to be perfect, so it gets VERY frustrating having to replay the same battle over and over again to miss by one or two turns.
