What's New in Version 1.1
★ 1.1 UPDATE
Fixed issue with Campaign scores not always updating to Game Center. Note: Scores are correct, and will be sent the next time any mission is played for a Campaign.
If you are looking for a real wargame for the iPad, you will need to keep looking. Limited unit density and a lack of differentiation between units means that gameplay consists of directing your units at the enemy units. Hopefully you can direct two units at the enemy's one for an advantage. Terrain is limited to roads, which aid movement, and rivers, which slow movement. Cities, woods, etc. which are present on the map seem to have no effect on combat.
The screenshots pretty much show the entire game play.
While games may not need good graphics to be enjoyable I think people would enjoy some graphic differentiation here.
As it is, to enjoy the game, you must appreciate directing blue arrows around the screen in real time, and then enjoy the arrows pulsing when they are in combat.
There is a basis of a game here, it's just not there yet.
The idea is good. Just so much needs done. For one, the enemies all flee and recover faster than your own troops, killing your chances of victory. Second, not enough troops, can't there be some division merging or something to save troops? Lastly, battles are like a dog pile, everyone wants to flank but then it bunches up everyone in a pile of crap. Expected more, got only fail.
