App description: Ancient Battle: Alexander delivers a unique wargaming experience on iPhone and iPad. Use Macedonian Phalangites, Greek Hoplites, Indian Elephants, Scythed Chariots, Persian Cavalry, Catapults, Archers, Slingers, and many other unit types to engage in classic battles.

Based upon, and a major upgrade to, the game system developed for Ancient Battle: Rome. A game that was the No.1 strategy game on the App Store in 8 countries and reviews included:

"Hunted Cows best wargame yet" - Pocket Tactics

"Smart, challenging, and surprisingly substantial strategy game" - Pocket Gamer

Included in this version are three campaigns that allow you to refight Alexanders battles in and around Greece and Macedonia, including the battle of Chaeronea.

The second campaign follows his push to conquer the Achaemenid Persian Empire, while having to deal with rebellious Spartans in Greece. Finally Alexanders campaign in India, ending in the epic battle of Hydaspes, with the Macedonian Pike Phalanx versus the masses of Indian Elephants.

Major game system improvements on Ancient Battle: Rome include improved A.I., improved combat analysis system, better flank attack logic, better line of sight logic, Elephant Generals, and Greek Hoplites.

When is the next Tank Battle game coming out? I still can't really wrap my head around how to play Ancient Battle Rome or the Civil War games effectively...

We're aiming to submit Tank Battle: East Front 1943 to Apple next week so it'll hopefully be available on Thursday, 24th April.

We're also planning a major update to all our current hex games over the next few months which will see the addition of iCloud saves. As well as this, we'll be releasing Mac versions of all the games so you can play on the Mac then continue your save on the iPhone / iPad (and vice versa)
