The Battle For Hill 218

"an excellent WWII-themed tile-laying game which fits into the shorter periods in your game-playing life." - Pocket Tactics

"Battle for Hill 218 is an enjoyable strategy card game that is great for quick and challenging games" -

Hill 218 looks just like any other hill on your map, but High Command says it's important and it's your job to take it. Unfortunately the enemy has the same plan.

The Battle for Hill 218 is an abstract strategy card game for two players where you represent a military commander struggling for control of Hill 218 as part of a larger military struggle. Players must maintain supply lines and destroy enemy units to advance on the enemy home base, while ensuring that their own base is not taken. It's easy to learn and quick to play but has a depth of strategy usually found only in games that takes much longer to play.

*Deploy different army units such as Infantry, Tanks and Special Forces*
*Play vs. the computer with three difficulty levels*
*Async multiplayer through Game Center, or play a local friend over wi-fi or bluetooth*
*Game Center Achievements and Online Leaderboards*

Based on the popular card game with the same name, The Battle for Hill 218 has been described as the perfect strategy card game and is now finally available on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.

"... only Ascension has ever felt better over such short play sessions."

Smart, quick, but freezes

Really great idea for quick game with a nice balance of luck and skill. The hard AI is fun! Found the game through boardgame geek, and it's worth picking up

But on both my iphone5 and ipad2, the game slows to a halt after about three games in a row. Without fail. You notice that response time to your clicks slows, then the AI thinks too long, then nothing works but at a glacial speed. Requires rebooting the device if I want to keep playing. I can run other apps without rebooting; just the app itself stops working

Add EASY stats to the stats screen please

I only play this game in easy mode and thats enough challenge for me. This game is tracking easy wins/losses because I see these stats at the end of a match. But in the STATS option/screen you dont show EASY wins/losses. Thats a little odd. Can you please add them?

Bluetooth did not work

I was disappointed with the multiplayer component of the game. Setting up an online game with friends is more work then it should be. Also Bluetooth mode did not work for multiplayer. Also you should be able to redo card placement. This would be helpful since the game will freeze at times and cards get placed in places by mistake.
