Awaken your instincts and conquer the world! Develop a war strategy, determine a country’s strengths and weaknesses, fortify your lands and dominate!
From the moment you select your country of origin, every decision becomes strategic. How will you spend your budget? How will you secure your borders? Will you defeat the enemy or team up to take over the world? In a game of tactics, play as one of 9 regions and wage war against 165 countries. Venture around the large-scale map, sail across oceans and battle your way through victory and defeat.
“He who knows when he can fight and when he cannot, will be victorious.” - Sun Tzu

What's New in Version 2.1.1
Correct a crash with Game Center
Could use some work..
It's fun, but unlike risk you can attack any country from any other country as long as you have ships, which is not hard to do. I get the idea that if you have ships you wouldn't be confined to only attack the nearest region of a neighboring continent or country as you are in risk but it makes it feel like one big mess once all territories are taken and every body is attacking from every which angle. Maybe if you could only attack neighboring continents/countries with ships that would make a bit more sense, as well as make the game quite a bit more strategic rather than the 'attack any country from any other country' strategy that it has.
Very enjoyable turn-based strategy game. Very similar to Risk, with some differences making it more strategic ("neutral" countries, ocean-based attacking, balancing war, etc).
Well worth it- I've played through at least 20 games and still enjoy playing while I'm watching a movie or something else.
My only complaint is that the 1-player difficulty levels do not seem that different from one-another. And although games may end up longer on more difficult settings they aren't actually much more difficult.
Unrealistic and not a true strategy game
The ability of ships to move half way around the world in one move quickly leads to a free for all, as other reviewers have mentioned. It would make more sense and lead to greater strategic thinking if ships could only move from one region to the next per move.
Also, the AI is definitely skewed towards some countries more than others in the solo games. In the couple dozen games I've played, Brazil & Japan never even came close to winning a single one.
I gave it 3 stars because the game is good for what it is but soon becomes boring. It's worth the 2 bucks I paid for it but, it's time to move on.
