Fun little wargame.

Mr Victim

Nothing particularly extraordinary here. Your basic 20th century hex-based tactical US civil war game with an adequate AI for what is required of it. Kinda flavorless, in terms of sound effects, special rules and music, and it could have used a good UI pass. But still enjoyable. It's fun to charge the enemy's guns and to drive his army before you. I consider my 2 bucks well spent. If you like the free version, buy it.

Nice fun


Enjoyable and fun to play from both ends.

Games too short so you need to purchase more


Entertaining game but every game is turn limited (approx 12 to 15 turns) so that it limits replayability, enjoy-ability and you quickly plow through the battles so you hopefully purchase more.

I won't be purchasing more scenarios because they all automatically end around turn 12 to 15 and last about 20 minutes

I would possibly be interested in purchasing more if they add another option to continue past the set final turn or victory conditions or added more battles that are fight to elimination of enemy or non-turn restricted
