App description: Spirit of War: The Great War is a table-top turn-based strategy game set during World War I. Lead troups of the Triple Entente or Triple Alliance army and relive World War I greatest battles. Drawing inspiration from board games classics, Spirit of War: The Great War offers a unique arcade/strategy gameplay.

Fight on 48 historical maps tracing the events who took place between 1914 and 1918. Battles take place on fixed size maps built on hex cases. Each of these cases constitute a different kind of terrain that impacts the advance of the troops in different ways: roads, plains or forests all come with their own bonus or malus.

Spirit of War: The Great War invites you to take part in battles 2 months apart. Between each of these battles, a summary of the events written and documented by Julien Hervieux, an historian specialized in WWI, is available to the player.

In order to defeat the enemy troops, two possibilities: Capturing the Head Quarter or eliminating all the troops. Each of the players units can be moved, healed and swelled to be victorious.

At the beginning of the game, only a few units are available. These units will grow bigger and bigger while new troops will appear at the same dates they appeared during the actual war.
Two captivating campaigns including 24 maps each are playable.

Hehe, that's true. I saw some videos in youtube from the pc version. It has a good presentation, good-looking graphics, history facts, not WW2 campaign (!) but the music is TOO BORING (!!) and before the attack you can't see the stats if you will lose or win like e.g. in Fire Emblem, Advance Wars, XCOM etc. So either you have to memorize many sort of battles, either you have to play the battles without knowing anything and have random battles which is annoying.

This looks cool. Hopefully the aI is decent although I've read somewhere that it's not.

Here we go again, as in past week. You click Buy, you get "The item is no longer available" message. What is up with the Apple App Store lately?😕

Premium titles are selling so badly that the devs don't dare to make more copies, i think.

This is a crap game. The english is terrible, text is so small it's almost unreadable, and start up takes forever, plus no rotate. The "No longer available" message, take it as a warning. Give it a miss.

I have been holding off on this one as it tries to be many things at once. On the one hand they want this to be presented as a serious WWI wargame, yet it seems to play like the cartoony Great Little War Game. I might be all right with that, but the YouTube vids seem to show that the AI is a pushover...

Bulkipix games have been going downhill lately.
