Battle for Wesnoth HD

I'm pleased to announce that the epic turn-based strategy game Battle for Wesnoth will be available soon for the iPad!

With much more viewable map area, planning your battle strategies just got a whole lot easier.

All graphics have been updated to take advantage of the larger screen.

A "picture-in-picture" view, so you can really appreciate how much better this game will be on the iPad!

Most other games seem to be launching for the iPad at $4.99 or $9.99. So Battle for Wesnoth HD will be $.99

Wait.... What??

That's right, we want everyone to experience this amazing game! With over 300 hours of gameplay and major monthly updates, this is a must buy for all iPad gamers!

99 cents!!!????

I won't even have an iPad when this comes out and I'll still purchase it so I can play as soon as I do get one!

Any chance for some way to share save data between my iphone and the ipad version?

I wasn't totally sold on iPad, but shots like this are winning me over. Good stuff.

Great. Here comes the 99c push. Way to ruin the market.

The app looks pretty good (in fact, very much improved over the iPhone version), but I don't want the iPad store to turn into a "$2 is too expensive" market.

getting this on ipad for 99c is one of the greatest deals in the history of videogaming. Nobody should have an ipad and not own this.

Wow, talk about ungrateful. So no dev can ever put their app on sale because the whole AppStore is going to implode with all the price drops this will cause?

Until Apple irons out a way for devs to give a discount, like getting wesnoth HD for a reduced price because I own wesnoth for iPhone, expect a lot of devs to do limited sales which they promote to their users as a thank you for buying their apps.
