Commander the Great War

By Slitherine

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


This is the war that ended peace, in a continent where great leaders had to lead their countries to victory at all cost. And you are that leader.

Commander The Great War is a turn-based strategy game that captures this time of war with unprecedented realism and accuracy. A huge-hex based campaign map that stretches from the USA in the west, Africa and Arabia to the south, Scandinavia to the north and the Urals to the east, is the setting for 5 grand campaigns, each starting in a different year of the war.

You are confronted with all possible strategic and tactical decisions, from logistics to diplomacy, from deployment to combat. Every aspect of the war is in your hands in a gaming experience with no precedent on the iPad. Commander the Great War is a game for strategy fans, for history buffs and for anyone who’s looking for a deep, immersive gaming experience.

The game includes:
*5 Grand Campaigns: 1914 The Great War, 1915 Ypres – Artois, 1916 The Battle of Verdun, 1917 The Nivelle Offensive and 1918 The Kaiserschlacht.
*Over 40 unique historical and “what-if” events triggered by conditions on the campaign-map.
*18 different unit types including Infantry, Cavalry, Armoured Cars and Tanks, Artillery, Railroad Guns and Armoured Trains, Cruisers, Submarines and Battleships, Fighters, Bombers and Airships. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, based on their historical performance in the various theatres throughout the war.
*Historical Commanders, each with their own specific strengths, so decide wisely which Commander is most suited to which front. Three types of Commanders are available: Generals for ground units, Admirals at sea and flying Aces to strengthen your air units.
*Research and technology to improve units. Aircraft evolve from fragile tools of aerial observation to deadly ground and air attack planes. Artillery barrages become ever more accurate and powerful. Armour technology unleashes a dreadful new weapon on the battlefield: the Tank.
*Detailed and realistic combat that models supply, morale, terrain, leadership, equipment, training and fog of war.
*Cross platform multiplayer via PBEM++ server system.

Great War Game

Just finished the campaign. The game was challenging and fun. Yes there are some UI issues, such a lack of an undo button that can be frustrating. But then again unintended things happen in war as well. There were some reviews regarding an crashes and slowdown during the enemy phase. These have been fixed any I have not had any crashes ever since. All buyers should keep in mind that this is some what of an old school war game. Don't blame it for being such. But it's a must have for war gamers and is great start for new comers.

Pretty good

When I first saw that Commander the Great War was released for iPad I was thrilled! Finally a ww1 strategy game that almost anything goes! After spending the $20 ( which I was a bit skeptical about) I soon learned it was worth it. A brilliant game with only two complaints, no undo button which would help since I'm on the iPad and May lowering AI difficulty I'm playing on handicapped and stilling getting slaughtered. Other then that I say well done!

Four out of five

Your games are amazing and i appreciate your work. But can you also make an undo button and the Ai a little bit harder. May you also make games like this, such as in the civil war and WW2. You kind of have the map for WW2 for European part of the war. You only have to change borders, technologies, and diplomacy.
