Is this turned based?

I nearly bought this and The Incident last week. I was NOT expecting this to EVER go free, since it has a limited audience.

having played the Demo of the original on my PC and never quite understanding the WEGO rules, I'm grabbing this now!

For those who don't know, WEGO is term used in turn based strategy games. It's the opposite of IGO-UGO. In WEGO games, all players' actions are resolved in the same turn; different games use different methods to determine what happens if, for example, two forces meet. These terms are most often used in grognard-level wargames. If you don't know what a grognard is, check Wikipedia

Wow this looks great. Does anyone know of any other games similar to this? Interested in TBS/strategy games and games like this are perfect

If you have an iPad and don't mind spending 20 bucks, Battle Academy (at least, I think that's the name) is a must. It's a port of a PC game that costs at least 40 bucks, so the price isn't outrageous; it's essentially the same game, with cross-platform multiplayer. You can DL the PC demo at (again, I could be wrong) Matrix Games. There's no lite version, but they feature the same gameplay and you can play against owners of the PC version.

Hmm looks good. I'll try the demo. And this game seems better suited to the iPad. Kind of slow on the touch and small, and feels kind of off.

Oh very cool! Almost bit on this when it came out despite some of the complaints, but held off. No reason not to try it now.

This is a surprise.
I heard it is a very buggy game which is why I have yet to buy.
