-------


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!

There seems to be a new version of Wesnoth (iWesnoth):

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/iwesnoth/id575239775?mt=8

Does anyone have any information about this? Is this the promised update (well, provided as a new app)?

It is not the same developer ... that could be a good sign ... because Kyle Poole is the kind of developer who does not care about old Software if he finds a way to grab new money ... I know him since Palm OS times ...

If this thing is real it seems to be a real Version ... with all maps a even the free download of new maps ...

Yes, it looks really good from the screenshots (actually, the one where you can download new campaigns and maps...this would be great!)

Anybody going to test?

Are this real sceens or is it just a scam? It is a new developer and I did not found anything in the Wesnoth Community about a new Version ...

Definitely appears to be the full game, and the developer is present in the Wesnoth forums. However, I have no idea if the heads of the Wesnoth project have approved of it or not. Wesnoth is open source, so theoretically anyone can grab the source code and publish an iOS app...

Cool, so what's the difference between the two versions?
