REVIEWS

"...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!

I just got the update. What are the UI improvements and how much are they? The thing that was setting me off was the slightly odd and kind of buggy controls.

Thanks

No, there is not enough memory for the translations... Because of how it works, it needs both the original text as well as the translated text in memory. And that is just too much

WOO HOO!

There goes another big chunk of my life playing this game. I honestly don't know how Kyle can give this away at 99 cents...I would use hyperbole to describe this deal but I think it's actually impossible to do so because it's such a literally ridiculous deal. Basically, if you're reading this and you haven't bought the game then stop reading and go get it immediately.

Thanks so much Kyle for all the work you've put into making this (I believe) the best game out there!

I'm loving the new map feature, it really helps to plan strategy.

This game coming to the iPad makes me really want an iPad! It's no exaggeration that this will be absolutely perfect for that device.

hey Kyle - not sure if this has been suggested already, or if its already in there, but when saving a game, it would be good if you could see a list of previously-saved games...

i like to save the game a lot, but i also like to save over the same slot each time, it can be a pain erasing the whole auto-generated name and typing the name you want for your save each time.

just a small thing

Is there any chance you could add a button for acknowleding information popups. I have missed quite a lot of the storyline by taping the screen just as a popup appears.

Keep up the good work

Yes! This is something I have asked about before...I have restarted scenarios just because of that before...and I'm often kind of gunshy about tapping the screen at all after finishing a turn as a result.
