The unable to download has been a thing over the past few weeks. Don't know why apple hasn't gotten it together yet. Seems like pretty much most if not all new release apps over the weds/Thursday release time period suffer from it. I'd imagine there would be some lost app sales generated by the inconvenience for one reason or another.
Anyway. It'll be available soon.

I know right.
Slitherine don't seem to believe it exists. (They have a couple of universals).
How epic would this be to have on a truly portable device.

Yes mate it does. I took part in the Beta, it's a great game with hours upon hours upon hours of gameplay!

My tip for this is "keep your units alive" as they stay with you through the campaign.
