❋❋❋ Infinipixel review: 9.5/10 ❋❋❋
"Between the improved AI and wonderful new modes, I'm going to have to give GLWG a solid 10 in this category. It features the best gameplay I've found in any mobile turn based strategy game I've played to date."
Yes, there are plenty of laughs to go with your war. The app has a unique styling that includes amusing graphics, antics and sound effects. There may be times when you’re hoping to get shot, just to see and hear what happens. Still, the Great Little War Game is about the fight.
Varied missions are the order of the day here - capture the enemy HQ, escort the Generalissimo to safety, guide small squads behind enemy lines, defend your base...you get the picture. There are 20 missions included, so it's going to be one crazy ride if you decide you’re brave enough to give them a try.
But fear not, soldier. The Great (and definitely NOT cowardly) Generalissimo is here to save the day, along with his indefatigable aide Jenkins. If the Great Little War doesn't get to you, their puns and hi-jinks certainly will.
What are waiting for? Right now, as you sit reading this, there is a battalion of soldiers just waiting for your command. Download Great Little War Game now and take your place alongside your troops. Lead well, live long and have fun.
What's New in Version 1.5.4
* Fix for a crash occurring when language on device is set to French.
I was looking for something like 'Allied General' - and while this isn't a hexagonal game, and doesn't have the same game mechanics in terms of moving after you shoot; little difference in damage taken based on high-ground / low ground (at least in the demo version) which makes the Starcraft 2 strategy of "rush for the hills!" less important (height only seems to affect range) - it was good enough that at some point in the future when I have the time and have replayed all the free levels until I've got gold on all of them, I will probably buy the full game.
I am actually looking forward to replaying the levels: it doesn't feel like a completist chore. Instead, I get to try out all the ideas that I thought of when I was playing, or rectify all the mistakes I made while learning how everything works. (blocking the enemies new recruit out put point doesn't work: you just trade units the first time he buys a unit and then he kills your (my) engineer with the next three units . . . never mind, I will PWN on my second play-through! This is one of the most enjoyable turn based games I have seen.
Only feedback I would give is an option to not he animations. The animations are really great, they add to the game, but for ripostes of speed (or in a car where watching animations makes me a bit sick) I would be happy. To turn that off and get on with the game more quickly.
Great game, thanks! - Josh
Bribing users for reviews not cool.
I like to use a piece of software for a month or two before I write a review, because IMO one important factor is how the app seems to me after the honeymoon period. GLWG, however -- even after I've paid for the full version -- requires me to rate it before all units are unlocked. I understand app producers probably live and die by app ratings, but restricting the user experience for those who don't choose to rate your product doesn't seem like the way to solve the problem. So... maybe in a month I'd feel like this is a five star game, maybe I wouldn't... but right now my impression is it's nowhere near challenging enough. That might be because the higher difficulties evidently aren't unlocked until a campaign is completed on easy level -- but I can't assess that if I'd like to be able to play with the grenadier unit now instead of only later after I can choose higher difficulties. Since the price of the full game is really cash plus a review, rather than simply cash as I was led to assume -- and since a review is required to unlock all units despite the fact I don't feel right about giving an overwhelmingly positive review to a game I haven't had time to put through its paces -- two stars seems appropriate. If you'd like a potentially higher rating on future products, give me a full game when I've paid for one and give me as much time as I need to assess its quality. Now give me my grenadier.
Looks solid so far (but did not unlock the grenadier it said it would give me for reviewing)
I just picked up the free version and haven't played real far yet, but I've been impressed with the depth of what I've seen so far. Normally I'd hold off rating until I'd played more, but the game is offering to unlock a soldier type if I write review.
EDIT: Dropping my rating from 4 stars to 3. The game promised that it would unlock a grenadier if I rated it. I did so, and have played three different maps since then, and the promised grenadier is not available on any of them. While that's only a minor annoyance, it's a crummy business practice (or possibly a bug) and feels a little manipulative. That doesn't change that this is a solid and enjoyable game, but it certainly disminishes my enthusiasm a bit.
Great Little Wargame is appropriately named. It requires tactical cleverness on the battlefield, and strategic foresight when picking your units. It's not terribly realistic, but it makes up for that with solid, interesting gameplay.
