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

Social Games: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle, FF Record Keeper, PAD

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.

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!
