in the ones I have played, grabbing and selecting groups of units and doing something with them was very difficult. on the pc, it is easy to manage battles with a click-hold-drag to select and a right click to attack/move/ect. Form the couple i tried, unit control on a large scale was so terrible I have mostly decided not to even play them because the amount of frustration outweighed any enjoyment.

MAW3 looks cool enough though that i might give it a try next time I have some itunes money.. can anyone speak to how well the touch controls work?

Contest-game

Thanks for doing a contest for the game! It's always fun to have a chance to get something for free.

I'm not usually interested in RTS games but this one seems really cool. I love that it has over 130 items to build and upgrade. I also like the idea of the random map skirmishes as well. Seems really cool.

I do love RTS games. I used to play them all the time but there just don't seem to be many around lately. Playing one on an iPad seems like it would be a match made in heaven due to the touchscreen controls and holding the screen closer to your face. It would make all the details and artwork much easier to see.

If you like RTS, you should DEFINITELY buy this one! I totally agree, playing this on an iPad would be AMAZING. It's great on the iPhone, but yeah, iPad? Uhm hmm...

I give up.
