Trenches of War is a fast-paced World War I-inspired strategy game. Battle through the Alps by spawning units and capturing trenches, barracks, and factories. Cross rivers that rise when it rains. Use or destroy bridges and cornfields that may aid or deter your maneuvers.

The goal of this game is to cross the battlefield and enter the enemy camp. Doing so will require careful unit recruitment and strategic advancement timing.

Units are recruited and controlled by pressing the buttons at the bottom of the screen. The rightmost button tells three troops to advance to the next trench, the leftmost button tells three troops to halt advancing. Soldiers, flamethrowers, and tanks are capable of advancing into enemy trenches, snipers and artillery will only advance when a trench has been claimed. To access elite units, press and slide up on the Sniper, Tank, and Artillery buttons.

Money trickles in automatically overtime but is also rewarded for killing enemies, capturing trenches, and when a crate falls into your territory.

Killing enemies contributes to a power meter. When this power meter is full, a power-up (speed boost or immunity) is activated for a few seconds.

The score multiplayer in the top-right corner contributes to money rewards and power-gain.

Cornfields blind basic infantry, providing some cover for troops attempting to cross them.

Rivers slow soldiers down to 3/4 of their normal speed when it is sunny and 1/3 of their normal speed when it is raining.

Trenches upgrade over time to acquire barbwire.

Barracks and factories can be captured to spawn units closer to the battlefield.

Great War game!

Amazing unique game.

Thank you so much for a unique, and fun world war 1 trench style game. It's very fun as it is, but I do have one suggestion, maybe you guys should add a machine gunner and/or morale. I do feel it is a bit repetitive too, maybe some high ground and low ground would be good changes as well? That way, if you hold the high ground, when it rains, it won't flood part of your trench, and if you hold the low ground, then the rain would flood part of your trench. Again, just suggestions, thanks for taking time to read this!

Developer Response

Hey there - thanks for the review! We just added 100 levels + 5 units. Lots of new mechanics as well. Hope that makes things less repetitive :)


I think it's one of my best uses of my storage on my iPad

I love it . The thing I wish it had was a infantry machine gunner because I bet WWI Probably did have machine gun tanks back then but it's not the same with tank because the tank is too overpowered. Another thing they need is medics and the immunity and and speed boost and things like that should go. If your reading this please respond by making these changes in the next update . Thank you. May the Allies win. 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇬🇸


Great game

This game is a lot of fun but I what I think would make this game better is if you could control a sniper and choose who you could shoot and if all the classes you can spawn were lined up instead of having to switch between them like for the sniper and flamethrower also it would be nice to see how many of each troop I have.
