App description: Rebels & Redcoats recreates the pivotal battles of the American War of Independence. The latest strategy game from Hunted Cow Studios brings the classic Decision Games board game to iPad; and is the first in a series of games to come from this exciting partnership. Take command as either the American colonies or the British Empire and shape the future of a nation, with 10 historical battles.

You will face the same tactical challenges as generals such as George Washington and William Howe, with missions of varying size and objectives, and 24 different combat units. As with previous strategy games from Hunted Cow, every effort has been made to capture the look and feel of the warfare methods, equipment and uniform of the day, and this title is no exception. In these battles players will also find the detailed and accurate maps, orders of battle, and named regiments from the well-loved Decision Games board game.

The hex-based game system features a large variety of infantry, cavalry and artillery units, generals and terrain types. Use your combined forces to outmaneuver, outwit or outshoot your opponent. Victory awaits you, Commander!

Meaning of stats boxes

Only just doing tutorial and on the firing tutorial when you choose an opponent to fire at a series of boxes pop up with statistics in them. No explanation is given to their meaning. Is there a manual available somewhere?

Worked it out you hold on the stats and you get a description

iPad playing: Door Kickers, Warhammer Quest, XCOM EU, Space Hulk, Deathwatch, and Breach & Clear
iPhone playing: Crossy Road, M.U.L.E., Hitman GO, The Paris Dossier, River Raid and Deathwatch

Just a question for the developer, Hunted Cow.

I have recently almost shifted most of my devices over to Android, but it seems like Russian Front is the only game available there, which I bought on the Google Play Store. Will the rest of your games, especially my favourite Tank Battle games, follow?

A bug possibly

Playing on iPad air running iOS 8.1. Finished all tutorials OK but on first campaign playing as Americans. If you don't move all units and opt to end your turn pressing Yes often freezes the game. Only way is to exit, close the app down and restart. But then you lose any moves you've made. Doesn't do it if you turn off the warning pop up.

which of these 10-dollar Hunted Cow games is better? Russian Front or Rebels and Redcoats?

I had Russian Front on my Android tablet but didn't like it at all. You might want to try Rebels and Redcoats instead.
