App description: The Bluecoats - North vs South UNIVERSAL, colorful strategy!

New : Multiplayer !

_____________ PRESS REVIEWS _____________

"What better subject for a French studio to make a strategy game about than the US civil war? This remake puts a modern spin on the classic 1990 tactical title."
www.ign.com

This game is a mix of Age of Empires and the Oregon Trail, but with a heck of a lot more action.
[] See for yourself how great this iPhone/iPad game is !

A revival in the truest sense, Bluecoats keeps the best elements of the original, replaces parts that begged for overhaul, and wraps the altered formula in a much prettier package. If I had to choose one version to show off as an example of the true potential of genre mashups, it would undoubtedly be this one.
If youre generally a fan of strategy games and have at least a passing interest in action, youll find lots to love in Bluecoats three-way mashup. The games greatest failing is simply that it lets you jump in on normal difficulty its utterly clear that you need to move up the challenge ladder starting from the very bottom.

For small sessions it does a solid job of making you think on your feet. The iOS version makes far more sense to buy than the PC, and iPad owners will probably get the best out of it. The mini games certainly make for an unusually mixed strategy experience, just make sure not to get too good at the shooting and turn the difficulty up!

Classic on the Amiga. It was all about blowing up the central bridge with your cannon. Or getting your cavalry to the enemy cannon sharpish for an easy win.

Raid a for was good to, bit of knife chucking

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

I spent so many hours of this game on the Amiga version. I would only really be interested if it's multiplayer because I'd love to kill my sibling with this again.
