Don't lose faith my friend. People do appreciate the hard work. Even though I don't intend to currently go online with this game just yet, I purchased every IAP anyways just to support the fine effort. On the plus side I still get extra units in single player (and battle points), and you win support from another appreciate fan Keep up the good work, and honestly even if you didn't do a single update after, I've more than my money's worth with the massive content already at hand! (Not that I would complain with further updates or ways to support the game anyways >_>).

Very temp price drop

GBWG is on sale again for $0.99 just over the weekend. Mainly to apologise to those who are waiting on the new patch, which is now out, that makes it work again!

I'm thinking of getting this game. How is the difficulty in comparison to the first one?

Hey guys, I'm stuck on level 4. It's the first level where you have to bank 1,000 coins.

Anyone got any tips for this one?

Shimmy your men down the right hand side out the way of the turret, take the base above you and just sit tight defending.

Thanks. I'm stuck on another level. (Not sure which level exactly, probably level 8 or 9).

The objective is to destroy the enemy HQ. I'm on an island that wraps around in a C-shape. I start out with 2 snipers and 2 grunts on the top part of the island. The instructions recommend taking over the bases on the bottom part of the island by crossing over with boats, but no matter which strategy I try, nothing seems to work. All of my men get killed pretty quickly and it's impossible to compete with the enemy who has 2 Commandos.

Any tips on this one?

I honestly can't remember the details of all these. Your best best is to join our forum at www.rubicondev.com/forum where there's a great community of people who all seem to know more about this game than I do! (including the level designer but he's currently out the country)

Rampant misogyny

Can anyone who have completed the campaign tell me if the extremely juvenile and woman-hostile attempts at "humour" prevail throughout?

I'm a 30 year old male and even I am extremely turned off by the sexist banter and the fact that the only female character is a ditzy bobble head with bobble-nipples whose sole existence is to be the recipient for as many sexist quips as possible. Starting with the insinuation that the only way she could possible have reached the rank of captain would be to suck ****. Seriously?

Are the developers 14? Or do they just assume gamers are?
