Needs interface work
I'm biased against touchscreens, especially small ones, but I find the command interface irritating. After a battle my thumb is always sore, because I have to tap a whole bunch for each order. I spend a lot of time deselecting my accidental selections (like planes vs infantry).
However, the gameplay is good - even novel in some ways, for me. I do wish retreats were more obvious - I thought defending troops were getting mowed over.
Please don't purchase
I love strategy games and this one was really fun. However Shame on the developer for charging 9.99 and then making in-app purchases a must to continue deep into the game. I don't have a problem paying 9-15$ for a full game but I get really frustrated when I spend that much and it is as bad as a broken free to play game that is trying to siphon money to make the game playable. Please don't purchase until they fix the payment structure. Free to play with app purchase or a full beatable and fun game at 9.99$
Playing the lite version. No gameplay issues, everything works, good looking game. My problem is the combat model. I had to read a walkthrough to get past the second mission. Not a lot of strategy required. Build big stacks, keep attacking, and surround the enemy. Too simple for more than a few sessions. Battles go back and forth until you gain more troops than your opponent.
