App description: Fight various battles across Europe throughout the medieval ages. Each campaign is themed around battles between France and some of its various enemies in Flanders, Navarre and Aragon. Capitalise on strategic advantages to turn the tide of war in your favour; ride down your foes with heavily armoured knights, hold the line with bristling ranks of pikemen or strike from afar with crossbows and the famed English longbow. Will you emerge victorious or become another casualty of war?

Follow the treacherous scheming of Charles II of Navarre (known as Charles the Bad) as he attempts to gain more political power in France and for his Kingdom Navarre.

Flanders has a blood-soaked history with France, featuring many different wars, battle, revolts and rebellions. Join these two nations through the Franco-Flemish War (1297 to 1305).

Join the Crown of Aragon as they defend against the French through two different crusades before taking the fight to them during the conquest of Frances ally Navarre.

Hmmm

So I come to this app having not bought any hexwar games and only one hunted cow (but on the Slitherine system - Hell)

Basically I have got a refund, it's not really bad, I'd just prefer to pay 5 more and get something really good rather than mediocre. The UX is pretty low grade with big chunky ever-present square buttons for the settings, rules, info. Not too bad but just too large and constant for my liking.
The troops are nicely presented though, terrain is OK.

The gameplay is basic but functional. Sadly Its nowhere near a Slitherine game so much so that I'm never going to fire it up. Maps are smaller, units can only attack after moving if you do not deselect (so no ability to group an attack by approaching separately). Flanking works but no unit direction functionality. I could go on, but for tactical it doesn't come near a battle academy or pike and shot for me ... So is dead weight.

I wanted to try a hexwar game (they all look exactly the same functionally) - so at least this has helped me work out where I should spend my money!
