TapScape review: 10/10

"Great Little War Game is just that: a well-designed and enjoyable tactical war game perfect for those who enjoy the lighter side of virtual warfare."

Touch Arcade review: 5/5

"I'll call Great Little War Game "great" without hesitation" ... "the kind of game you can really sink your teeth into, which is rare enough. So I'm delighted to discover that it's also rich in features, good looking and full of humor."

Top10.com: First place (march)

"The lavish production values of the game, incredible attention to detail and excellent animation gives you a sense of aerial, naval and land warfare that gets as good as you can expect on a small screen"

Infinipixel review: 9.5/10

"Between the improved AI and wonderful new modes, I'm going to have to give GLWG a solid 10 in this category. It features the best gameplay I've found in any mobile turn based strategy game I've played to date."

Varied missions are the order of the day here - capture the enemy HQ, escort the Generalissimo to safety, guide small squads behind enemy lines, defend your base...you get the picture.

Rubicon's comments:
Our much anticipated turn-based strategy game is finally out.

There is a HD version for iPad and Retina devices and an SD version for 3GS.
(The game currently does not support 3G or older devices, but that will change in a planned future update.)

Lite versions in both SD and HD are available:

I have no clue how I ever missed this game when it came out or since then but I just recently discovered this thread after seeing the Total War game from Sega and I wound up wondering what other real-time or turn-based games were available.

My understanding is that apparently a sequel is soon coming and I was wondering if perhaps I should wait for that or instead bite the bullet on this one to hold me over. Any suggestions?

Not that I'm biased or anything, but I'd recommend the current game first.

The sequel is going to be a little more expensive and not out until sometime in June, depending on how the Beta goes.

The extra price is more about the extra (and ongoing) resources needed to support the multiplayer game, as opposed to a grab for more profit. We are hoping this will be the game's defining feature - it really does rock!

(It plays like that PBEM+?>>1 v1.2 blah) that that 'other' game has, only being a small indie team we see no mileage in making it out to be something revolutionary, which it isn't)

Alright, great. I'll probably pick this up later today then. Totally understand the need for a higher price for the sequel. I'm on board with developers charging more for quality work.

June.. What??? That is so loooooooonnnnnnngggggg

I know. Part of that will be an open Beta though so you can get your hands on it a little earlier if you go that route. Details to be announced when I get back from abroad in a couple of weeks.

Any chance you can add a different tile set? I would prefer if the graphics were 2D.
05-01-2012, 05:07 AM
The graphics have all been given some love, but this is a 3D game - it won't play properly in 2D and in any case would be far too much work, practically a new title. Sorry.

Yea... Maybe my iPad will function this time for the beta.. Lol
