The Battle for Snowdonia

Castle Dinas Bran, in the remote environs of the Welsh mountains stands alone. The Uzgoth demons from another world will soon have the castle under siege. A minimal complement of men remain at the Castle, their grisly fate certain if reinforcements do not arrive soon.

The Wizard Morden, a stranger from another world, arrives to bring reinforcements and supplies for Castle Dinas Bran. Morden has faced the Uzgoth before, and their dreaded leader Khaaaz.

Take on the role of Protector and guide Morden and save Castle Dinas Bran. Or be a Destroyer and aide Khaaaz and the Uzgoth in their plan to dominate the Earth.


The Mining Station

In the future, Humanity has conquered the planets. They are mined for their rich minerals and other resources. On the Jupiter moon of Io, the mining company LunarCol has established a base beating the competition by many years.

The celebrations are short as the unwitting clone workers have awoken an ancient being. And now the demon Hrethra is bringing her rage upon the mining base and LunarCol must escape.

Escort and save the employees to the escape shuttle, or take on the role of Hrethra and ensure that your planet is never disturbed again by those wishing to steal and pillage its resources.

The choice is yours.

So errr, only two scenarios?

From what I could see, it is an army vs army on a hex board. But i only saw atk and def. other than that, it is not out on Portuguese app store

Im guessing each scenario is like its own campaign. Not sure but would like to hear impressions on it.

Very basic hex wargame against AI. Each turn split into 3 phases - move, attack and end. Yes, the designers regard pressing the ‘end turn’ button as a phase. Stats for attack, defence and morale only. No indication on pieces which have moved. Play is slow yet dull. The snow and ice looks good in Snowdonia. The Io scenario looks the same with different graphics. This makes the Hexwar titles look like the pinnacle of complexity.
