"...the most in-depth turn based strategy game available for the iPhone." - Touch Arcade

"For strategy fans out there, The Battle for Wesnoth is packed with content and leaves almost nothing behind." - No DPad

"Battle for Wesnoth is an epic strategy game thats almost perfect...Overall, [it] is quite the accomplishment for the platform providing a tremendously deep game experience with more content than you can imagine." - Big Albie user review on Touch Arcade

"The Battle for Wesnoth stands as one of the largest, most epic games yet released on the iPhone." - Slide To Play, Rated 4+ "Must Have"


Battle for Wesnoth is the official port of a gigantic, complex and detailed full-scale strategy-RPG. We made sure that nothing was cut from the game, everything from flags flapping to skeletons juggling their heads, it's all here!

Wesnoth is a unique combination of tactical strategy RPGs like Fire Emblem, Advance Wars, Panzer General, and Final Fantasy Tactics. Using your hero, you need to capture villages to gain income, and recruit new units to do battle. These units gain experience through combat and can level up into powerful new classes. But make sure to protect your veteran troops, as they can be recalled throughout a campaign!

Awesome to hear, really looking forward to trying the new update out.

If anyone misses out on the sale they are crazy, its easily worth it prob the biggest steal on the appstore the amount of content is just enormous. I was iffy about buying the game at first as Im not a huge fan of this genre but its really good and had me hooked right away. So if your even giving the game a thought dont think no more and just get it!

As much as Im happy about this update I already cant wait for next, as you had said you are working on load times and AI times which would bring this game to near perfect bliss!

Thanks again Kyle keep up the good work.

I am so sold on this game. I've been debating it for a while because I'm completely new to TBS games. I'm sold at this point based on how active the developer is, the rave reviews here and the unbeatable sale price.

Currently Playing: Plants vs. Zombies, The War of Eustrath, Zenonia 1, Phoenix Wright, The Quest
