  • Experienced units gain powerful new abilities as they advance.
  • Bring your battle-hardened troops with you as you fight through campaigns
  • Hundreds of campaign scenarios available, easily download user-made content
  • Day/night cycles, fog of war, racial traits
  • Cross-platform multiplayer

Loved the PC version, though the last time I played it was a LONG while back.

Current: iPhone 6S, new 3DS, Vita

I was wondering how long it was going to be before this made it to a mobile platform. I must admit that I'm a bit surprised it never saw the light of day on the Pocket PC, though, since there is a Windows version. At any rate I'll be looking forward to giving this a go on the iPhone.
