Hedgewars, it's a Blast!
This is the funniest and most addictive game you'll ever play - hilarious fun that you can enjoy anywhere, anytime. Hedgewars is a turn based strategy game but the real buzz is from watching the devastation caused by those pesky hedgehogs with those fantastic weapons - sneaky little blighters with a bad attitude!
In other words Hedgewars is a turn based strategy, artillery, action and comedy game, featuring the antics of pink hedgehogs with attitude as they battle from the depths of hell to the depths of space.
As commander, it's your job to assemble your crack team of hedgehog soldiers and bring the war to your enemy.
Each player controls a team of several hedgehogs. During the course of the game, players take turns with one of their hedgehogs. They then use whatever tools and weapons are available to attack and kill the opponents' hedgehogs, thereby winning the game. Hedgehogs may move around the terrain in a variety of ways, normally by walking and jumping but also by using particular tools such as the "Rope" or "Parachute", to move to otherwise inaccessible areas. Each turn is time-limited to ensure that players do not hold up the game with excessive thinking or moving. A large variety of tools and weapons are available for players during the game: Grenade, Cluster Bomb, Bazooka, UFO, Shotgun, Desert Eagle, Fire Punch, Baseball Bat, Dynamite, Mine, Rope, Pneumatic pick, Parachute. Most weapons, when used, cause explosions that deform the terrain, removing circular chunks. The landscape is an island floating on a body of water, or a restricted cave with water at the bottom. A hedgehog dies when it enters the water (either by falling off the island, or through a hole in the bottom of it), it is thrown off either side of the arena or when its health is reduced, typically from contact with explosions, to zero (the damage dealt to the attacked hedgehog or hedgehogs after a player's or CPU turn is shown only when all movement on the battlefield has ceased).

Back in Action! Hedgewars Rocks!
Thank you so much for working to bring this amazing game back to iOS! I first learned of Hedgewars through PortableApps(dot)com and fell in love with it! It was one of the few games that would run on my old PC! I saw that it was on mobile but didn't have an iPad at the time, when I finally got one I found that it had been removed from the App Store. Now it's back!! It works great! Gameplay is fast and challenging! The camera movement via pinching could use a little work, it's touchy and and sometimes doesn't cooperate. Also the weapons that require pinpointing a position would be much easier to use if it could be tapped instead of dragging the little mouse across the screen. Overall, fantastic job! I'm thrilled that Hedgewars is back in action on iOS!
This game is exactly like the computer version and (surprisingly) has all the feature of it. Only two minor bugs I have found!
