"...the most in-depth turn based strategy game available for the iPhone." - Touch Arcade

"For strategy fans out there, The Battle for Wesnoth is packed with content and leaves almost nothing behind." - No DPad

"Battle for Wesnoth is an epic strategy game thats almost perfect...Overall, [it] is quite the accomplishment for the platform providing a tremendously deep game experience with more content than you can imagine." - Big Albie user review on Touch Arcade

"The Battle for Wesnoth stands as one of the largest, most epic games yet released on the iPhone." - Slide To Play, Rated 4+ "Must Have"


Battle for Wesnoth is the official port of a gigantic, complex and detailed full-scale strategy-RPG. We made sure that nothing was cut from the game, everything from flags flapping to skeletons juggling their heads, it's all here!

Wesnoth is a unique combination of tactical strategy RPGs like Fire Emblem, Advance Wars, Panzer General, and Final Fantasy Tactics. Using your hero, you need to capture villages to gain income, and recruit new units to do battle. These units gain experience through combat and can level up into powerful new classes. But make sure to protect your veteran troops, as they can be recalled throughout a campaign!

This one corresponds to the latest version available for desktops.

Here's just s few reasons to pick this one up over the old (which hasn't seen an update in 2.5 years):

- a LOT of bug fixes and tweaks
- new/improved art
- more campaigns
- download new maps and campaigns from add-on server
- multiplayer
- an active developer who will hopefully keep things in line with the desktop releases

OH...MY...GOD!!!! Been waiting for more content for so long!!! My favorite TBS of all time!!!!!

Can someone do a comparison of the two? I am a bit biased so I'm sure you don't need my opinions.

To be clear, this new release is an authorized port of the latest 1.10 wesnoth source. So it's missing everything that I optimized and added in my iOS fork.

BTW multiplayer has been working again in my version since August, according to the Wesnoth lead developer they again enabled the legacy MP server.

Be sure to check out Shadow Era, a trading card game now with almost 3 million players, cross-platform multiplayer for iPhone, Android, web, PC and Mac for FREE!

I would also like a comparison of the two versions, mainly concerning the additional content that is available in the iwesnoth version. I have purchased Battle for Wesnoth, and it is by far my favorite game for my iphone. However, I am intrigued with the idea of more campaigns and content.

Hi all,

Does this game work on ios6? I'm going to upgrade my iPad to play BG, but wesnoth is one of my favorite games. Since it hasn't received an update in a while, I'm just wondering if it didn't have any problem with the ios6 upgrade.

Cheers and thanks!

1. Yes, it does ...

2. You should buy the new iWesnoth ... search for it here in the forums ... it is much, much better than the old version!
