Here is some gameplay footage on the ipad (from SlideToPlay):

I think this will look very small on an iphone/ipod touch screen, if they choose to use the same screen ratios done on the ipad.

Favorite mobile RTS: Autumn Dynasty, Amoebattle & Red Conquest
Great TBS/SRPGs: Wesnoth, Battle Academy, Kingturn, Pantheon Cycle, Dungeon Crawlers, SW&E, Viking Lords, Metal Brigade Tactics, Tactical Soldier, Ravenmark, Tactics Maiden and Banner Saga

That would be a pretty stupid design decision. You have to assume that the iPhone version will have a different layout from the iPad one.

Interesting point is that this game is designed by Julian gallop - creator of rebelstar, laser squad and xcom. It doesn't get any better than this ( well until he releases a new version of laser squad anyway),
Julian Gallop you say! I'm in...I still break out the old GBA to play Rebelstar now and again.

Games that will never leave my iPad : Great Big Wargame, Battle Academy, Battle of the Bulge, Ravenmark and Hunters 2.

Interesting. Not too many games go for the portrait orientation unless the gameplay really demands it.

Bought it for 3DS but never finished it. Will buy again on iPad.

Its only gone for portrait to try to emulate the 2 screens on 3ds. I imagine iphone/ipod version wouldnt bother (or hope).

Really want this but its taking too long, might have to drop the cash on dungeon crawlers or time of heroes in the meantime

This was known as the best sleeper 3ds game at launch...amazing tactic gameplay ...what would you expect ! One of the great masterminds of XCOM wrote this game....A+ strategy gameplay ...graphics are meh...and storyline is so so ...characters are average and weapons average BUT the gameplay is awesome...wonder how much this will launch for...we have several decent strat/rpg games coming (Cthulhu and dungeon crawlers) so i won't put out too much for this right away since I'm almost done with the 3ds version.. But if u love this genre and don't have the 3ds ....smash the buy button asap

TESTING!-Most APPSASIA apps ...if your a dev hit me up and ill help.
