App description: Front Wars is a turn-based strategy game. Take control of allied troops and revive the great battles of the second world war in a tense campaign against the german army. You can challenge your friends online on Facebook, Gamecenter or by the passing the device.

The two armies take turns building and commanding units on a grid-based map. The objective is to defeat the enemy army. There are two ways to defeat an opponent: destroy every one of the opponent's units on the map or capture the opponent's headquarters. The terrain on a map affects unit range of movements and the defense attributes of units stationed in that terrain. Capturing cities and enemy buildings will give the player new fundings at the beginning of each turn, with which the player can create a variety of new units (soldiers, tanks, planes, ships...) to gain power over his opponent.

The game features:
* Revive great battles of the second World War in a tense Solo Campaign
* 26 missions
* 15 different Units : Soldiers, Tanks, Planes, Ships...
* 3 difficulty levels
* Cross Platform Online Turn-based multiplayer using Facebook
* Beautiful HD Graphics

Is this strictly two player or is there single player available? Looks interesting.

I'm thinking the answer to the riddle of a single player campaign is in the very concise description:

"great battles of the second world war in a tense campaign against the german army. You can challenge your friends online on Facebook, Gamecenter or by the passing the device."

One could interpret this as

Game modes are:

Play in a campaign (against AI)
Or play against friends using facebook or game center
Or play using pass and play.

That's my thinking.

Yes, it has a single player campaign. Yes, it is very inspired by Advance Wars.

Campaign is vs the AI.

Game looks SO close to Advance Wars - really nice and pretty much identical gameplay.

Tutorial text boxes display slightly off screen on iPad Mini Retina so can't read all the text but not that big a deal.

Some spelling mistakes (Vehicules, ennemies).

No space between 'Player' and 'AI' showing 'playerai' and same for 'Local' and 'User' showing localuser. Would be nice to have names rather than 'AI' and 'local user'.

But what I really, really hate...

Is that it seems some troop types, such as 'Jeep' is locked until you 'Like' on Facebook. I've paid for this game already; I shouldn't be forced to advertise it on Facebook in return for full functionality.

Having said that, this is the real deal - a REALLY nice Advance Wars clone that looks great.
