Yes, it'd be nice if it told you what the units were when it asked you to choose a new one to unlock. I was expecting the first level to be a tutorial, but nothing of the sort. Still, it's pretty obvious, especially if you've played Warfare 1917.

Initial impressions are good, but I want to see how well it gets me through a family Christmas. - A gaming diary.

Initial impression is that this is a well presented and good fun game but there are some teething troubles. Most notably there isn't a tutorial, only a threadbare 'how to play' which doesn't really teach you how to control or play the game.

The post-mission screens whereby you choose which weapons you want to take to the next mission aren't very informative and its not initially clear that you have to select a new weapon type - I thought my game had crashed as the load bar wasn't moving - when in actual fact it was waiting for me to choose a new weapon.

While the combat is fun and its kind of strategic in that you have to think about which type of solider would be best suited to the current battle - it can get a bit repetitive.

I image once the devs receive more feedback on weapon weighting and there are a few UI tweaks (like a button that takes you straight to the frontline) we'll have a very cool and enjoyable game. Right now I would say its not quite living up to the hype the devs created.
I agree.

I also miss some minor features... what I would like to see most:
1. Ability to continue a line by starting the touch at the end of the line instead of having to draw a new line from the soldiers
2. more information about each unit... cmon its just a few more pages in the help section
3. Drawing lines while scrolling over the battlefield
4. Multitouch => Drawing multiple lines at once

If you hurry, it's pretty easy... I like giving the enemy a bit of time... then usually he bombs my whole army with his artillery and I need to recover... this way I can practice more

Wow more proof of how they copied Warfare 1917- They called their game Warfare 1917- The war to end all wars. Now Trenches comes along and calls thier game- Trenches- The game to end all games.

Obviously you don't know that World War 1 was known as "The War to end all wars.". Woodrow Wilson called it that. he was the president of the United States at that time.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.
