Heroic Battle is a challenging strategy board game that requires logic, deception and memory. Play against a friend on your local Wi-Fi network or a computer opponent: Probe, the Computer Stratego World Champion. You can start a new game in seconds and pause a game to complete at a later time.
Heroic Battle is easy to learn. Each game is different. You and your opponent set up your flags, bombs and other pieces and then venture out to try to capture the other’s flag. But the catch is, you only learn the identity of your opponent’s pieces during attacks. Many of the pieces—miners, scouts, the spy—have special properties that you’ll discover as you play.
One of the great features of Heroic Battle is that you can create and save your own setups. Each setup produces a different kind of game. Do you prefer fast, wide open play or a slower more conservative pace? Do you want to fortify your flag and defend it or just hide it somewhere and dare your opponent to find it? It’s up to you.
Heroic Battle is fun to play with a friend. All you need is a local Wi-Fi network, no Internet connection required. One of you taps to create a game and the other taps to join it. Simple as that.
Or you can play against Probe, the built-in computer opponent. Probe is the three-time Computer Stratego World champion, which makes it one of the best AI game engines available. Probe is suitable for play from beginners to experts and can be set to your skill level.

Ratings and Reviews
The developers were very generous, offering a full Stratego game with now both an AI and Pass-and-Play mode. I'd be interested to see this app offer other IAPs such as piece and board themes/skins. The only bug I've encountered so far is the AI getting stuck and repeatedly moving a piece from the same position without the piece actually going back, but other than that, this app is great - way better than that "Military Chess" Luzhanqi app that was "free" (except that you had to buy to actually be able to do anything).
I’ve been looking for a good version of this classic board game for quite some time and have now found it. It works well, provides a large number of pre-designed board setups as well as ample storage for one’s own designs, and ads are presented very sparingly, never interrupting a game in progress. I couldn’t ask for more.
Developer Response ,
The 20 setups you have bought are replaced now with the new "Collected" setups. In the setups dropdown please choose "Collected". It is is a collection of 250 winning setups selected from competition play. Each time you are given 8 different setups from the collection. They are high quality and support a wide range of playing styles. You'll be able to explore new game development strategies and save the time required to design setups from scratch. I am sorry for confusion.
It was fine, until...
So this isn’t a bad app or anything, it’s just that I’d had it for two hours when the random ads started freezing. Without fail, every turn was accompanied by a frozen ad (the close button doesn’t work, the get button doesn’t work, etc. It’s like a picture) so I had to exit/close the app and reenter so I can take another turn, during which the cycle repeats. Would give it 5 stars if not for the frozen ads.
