App description: Civil War: 1864 is the latest addition to our Civil War strategy series, bringing you the ferocious battles from 1864. Experience the American Civil War like never before with with over 40 missions; including 20 detailed historical battles. Get a greater view of the battlefield as you lead your force to victory, with our new Map Zoom feature.

1864 saw the Union army make substantial gains against the Confederate forces in the American Civil War. Grant, replacing Halleck, took the risky gamble of attacking the Confederates on three different fronts. While Grant failed to gain any significant tactical advantage in any battle against Robert E. Lee, he succeeded at depleting Lee's forces. On the Western front, Sherman was able to capture Atlanta and seize Savannah. The Union's control of the railways and waterways gave them an immense logistical advantage, which would become vital to the North's eventual success. The Confederacy was ultimately fighting and losing a defensive war.

Thanks for posting about the game Echoseven

Just wanted to add that the main new feature we've added to this game in our Civil War series is the map zoom feature. It let's you use the pinch gesture to zoom in and out of the battle to get a better overview of the battle and includes a simplified (symbolic) version of the terrain.

Also it's possible to control the units from the zoomed out view

Finally, we're planning to update all our other hex strategy games with this feature and also utilise it further in future games to allow even larger battles!

Yeah it works on both iPhone and iPad (Universal App). No Android version currently but it's something we may look at doing in the future

I really like the idea of the zoomed out view and bringing it to your previous games. I think this could add a lot to the games. I will be picking this up soon!
