What's New in Version 1.1
Only buy this if you want to be stab a screw driver through your computer. I dont know how many times i would attack a with more than 2 times as many guys as my opponent and i wouldn't even kill half of their forces. What ever they have rolling dice is very loaded and favors the computer very heavily. Do not buy this, it is a waste of you money.
The update totally fixed all problems! AWESOME JOB!!!
I am astonished by the other reviews I have read, as my experience with the game is entirely different.
The game is played by purchasing and playing "cards" which allow you to perform actions such as deploying or equiping units, or bombarding your enemy. Units move around the board and attack each other, capturing territory, and gaining or losing tax revenue. Very much your standard strategy fare.
Or at least that is the way the game is supposed to work. After 15 minutes of trying to play, I've figured out how to purchase and play cards, but I cannot figure out how to select and move units. It must be possible, based on the actions of my computer opponents, but I've tried every combination of clicking, arrow keys, and modifiers that I can think of. I can drag the board around, but the game just beeps at me when I try to click on units.
I'm willing to assume that I'm stupid and that this is meant to be simple, but I expect that every game will have decent instructions to aid the idiots like me. The instructions given are exceptionally poor. There is no mention of how to perform simple actions such as selecting and moving units. The grammar is poor. Many sentences do not even make sense.
E.g. The complete description of a Fortress card reads, "All points rolled by dice +1 in the round of defence. Can not [sic] act in 3 turns." I have determined that the author meant "die" (singular), not "dice" (plural), but I cannot discover what the author intended to be significant about 3 turns. I can only assume that the author is writing in a non-native languange and did not bother to have the text proofread.
Beyond playability, I've already encountered several bugs. When switching in and out of fullscreen it is possible to cause the graphics rendering to go haywire, overlaying a continuously changing set of irrelevant images, and in the span of 15 minutes, I've triggered 2 full application crashes complete with error reporting.
I can't remember if I paid anything for this app or if it was free. In either case, I paid too much. I want the wasted fifteen minutes of my life back. This app should never have passed QA testing.
