Great Little War Game HD

Our much anticipated turn-based strategy game is finally out!

Linked below is the free to play lite version. A paid for version (at 3 bucks) should be coming out in the next hour or two.

Enjoy!

Looks like a little mess-up with the App Store - this has been pulled, only the iPhone version is available.

Still, I pulled the iPhone version and it's lovely - will buy as soon as the iPad version is available.

Great job on not being an Advance Wars clone too!

Weird, when I clicked through from the TA sidebar, and it brought up the iTunes page (where the app was listed as Universal btw), but when it opened iTunes it said it wasn't available in the US store.

So I did a manual search for Great Little War Game and it only came back with the iPhone-only Great Little War Game Lite, no HD in site.

I'm sure it'll be sorted soon, can't wait.

And now it IS showing up in iTunes, but not on the device App Store. So probably just a propagation issue.

Hmmm. I'm based in the UK so maybe it's only showing up there atm. I'm sure it will resolve itself soon - it's meant to be going out worldwide but I'm unsure about how Apple actually do this - they got an awful lot of stores!

I see it in the Canadian app store and it's a Universal app.

It is universal, it'll run on anything later than a 3G phone/ipod and size itself accordingly. We are including Retina sized iPhones/iPods in our definition of HD, which is something I'm surprised more developers don't do.

Blatant honesty moment: If you have a 3GS phone (and no iPad) then you're wasting money buying the HD version even though it'll work properly - the standard version will look the same and be two bucks cheaper.

Still waiting for the HD non lite version, consider it bought when this shows.
