Sure they're great games, but boy does Hunted Cow really milk this game engine. This is what, the 9th title not including demos?

I think it's their way of adjusting to consumers. With so much hate towards IAP, instead of adding a bunch of IAP campaigns, they release each campaign as a separate game with links to each within the games. Also it helps highlight them in the App Store. I don't know this to be true, it's just my guess.

Being a fan of HC, I agree it's a bit of a questionable tactic. I hope it works for them.

I have two of the games in the series and they're great games.

I'm glad to see more Tank Battle material; but I agree there seems like a flood of it and despite what people say I can't help wondering if releasing IAP might have ultimately been more palatable. I really need to catch up on these. Great looking release.

I've got a couple of the Tank games by Haunted Cow... but I haven't really had too much time to get into them. How different are they really, and is this one worth picking up if I've already got previous tank games? With so many TBS titles that look pretty similar (from the same dev), it's hard to tell... =o/

I had the first two, I think the engine works best for pre-gunpowder combat, oh, may be it is just me...

Some more Lordz/Hexwar/Hunted Cow game news

- Tank Battle: East Front 1944 is in the final stages of play testing and should be available within 3-4 weeks. Look out for King Tigers!

- Musket & Sword: Peninsular War Battles, a new Napoleonic hex-based, turn-based war game series for iPhone, iPad and Apple Mac is nearing the final test phase.

I used to just buy the IAP campaigns for Tank Battle and Tank Battle: North Africa because each update already included the campaign data and the overall size of the apps were acceptable.

With this new system of each campaign being its own app, I have to scrounge up 152MB per campaign, which is seriously making me pause in just hitting buy on all of them.

I am running out of space, and Apple keeps releasing those iOS updates also needing space...
