App description: Shall We Play A Game?

This is THE officially licensed WarGames mobile game!

Step into the role of the iconic WOPR computer as you wage intense battles of Global Thermonuclear War against characters from the movie. Take on David Lightman (played by Matthew Broderick), Jennifer Mack (played by Ally Sheedy), McKittrick (played by Dabney Coleman), and others.

Features:
-Compelling storyline
-40+ levels
-24 Tactics and Mods to make your character more powerful, each with 8 upgradable levels
-GameCenter achievements and leaderboards
-iCloud enabled
-Supports the New iPad and iPhone 5 resolutions

Gameplay:
There are four tile types on the board at any given time. Drag your finger over as many similar tiles to create as long of a chain as possible. The longer the chain the bigger the bonus you'll get or more damage you'll deal to your opponent.

Tile Types:
Nuke - Damage your opponent
Health - Heal yourself
Money - Gain money to deploy tactics against your enemy
Radar - Fills up your bonus meter. Once the meter's reaches 100% you get to choose an instant PowerUp

Enemy Tiles:
Your opponents will deploy tiles onto the board in an attempt to damage you and heal themselves. Match enemy tiles with regular tiles of the same type to damage and eventually destroy them. Enemy tiles are denoted by a pulsing crosshair.

Tactics:
Tactics are instant-use items deployable during battle. They do anything from dealing direct damage to your opponent, destroying enemy tiles, or nuking the whole board. They cost money to use (gain money by clearing money tiles). There are 12 unique tactics, each of which has 8 upgradable levels.

Mods:
Mods give passive bonuses and are always active during battle. Their powers range from increasing the amount of money gained each turn, adding to the value of a completed chain, or giving insane bonuses for completing long chains. There are 12 powerful mods and each one has 8 upgradable levels.

Stay in the loop!

The colours are confusing somehow, looking a bit chaotic, because they're all really bright (esp. in the last screenshot).
I need to see that on screen instead of screenshots.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Interesting that a game is made based on a 30 year old movie. Wonder if The game features any Matthew Broderick soundbites.

I canna say that there is much that appeals to me tonight. This might be the only title I'll be checking out, and I do have some reservations. And the interface really is very unattractive, retro vibes notwithstanding.

But if it manages to be a (lesser, most probably) Dungeon Raid with some additional context and sense of persistence, I think it just might be worth some invested time...

I actually think it just might. They mention him and the other actors as starring in the game I suppose that creates some weird form of additional appeal

Hey everyone, hope you enjoy the game. If you have any feedback on WarGames let me know. I'll be making several updates to the game in the coming months. I already have a few things planned but if you have any good ideas or want something streamlined please don't hesitate to contact me.

Not a fan of retro graphics in any game, so I'll wait for impressions. I do like Dungeon Raid and Witch Wars a lot.

Maybe this is just me, but I feel that a 16 minute trailer is counter-productive, and that 3-5 dense minutes or so is a much better length.
