Statement: this is one of the "long-waited" wargame coming out on iOS.

Statement: need to see this one fare in terms of gameplay, but glad to see more era and campaign coming in.

Query: did I say The Great Battles of Hannibal?

(Off-topic alert)

Clarification: I use many others like fanfare, puzzled, elaboration, mocking, and clarification, etc. Oops.

Elaboration: if you still do not get it, don't worry, read my signature.

(back on topic)

Analysis: pre-firearms era battle relies much more on formation, terrain, morale and combined arms tactics, than we had in American Civil War and WWI periods. Tank battles are fun in my book, especially WWII ones. That's why I play and also contribute to Shenanodah Studio games.

Concerned: Is it just TBNA but with elephants and slingers instead of tanks and grenadiers? Do some unit types have special attacks like stampede for elephants?

Each unit has it's strengths and weaknesses versus other unit types (for example Light, Medium and Heavy infantry). There is a new dynamic help system so you can compare the strengths/weaknesses of the currently selected unit to others in the current battle.

As well as this you can now also enable 'Combat Analysis' in the settings which gives you details of all the factors affecting the combat (terrain, armor etc.) before you choose to commit to it.
