Strategery. Fun Risk/DiceWars type game.

I had to pull myself away from this game.
Its a very well done if graphically simplistic world conquest strategy game.
you can read the description of the game to see how to play, but the game is basically a dice per dot and you roll vs the other properties dice to see who rolls highest to win.

There are several difficulty levels, from the very easy to brutal, which lives up to its name.

you can also choose how large a map you'd like, small medium or large.
I personally prefer the larger ones.

you can control the speed of the computer player as well, which is very neat, there is a little arrow slide on the bottom right of your screen. so if you want to follow every detail or just want it to go super quick so that its your turn again. whatever you prefer.

you cant play multiplayer online, but im hoping eventually that feature is added, currently you can play vs the computer or you can pass and play with friends.(which is a nice touch)

If you have played Dice Wars, the gameplay is virtually identical.
If you enjoyed Risk, Virtual Conquest, Lux or that type of game, you will enjoy this game.

I feel its well worth the $1 price tag and recommend you get it.

My only complaint, the sound is very very basic. bleeps and swooshes, and a little tada when you win, after my first game I just played it silent.

hmmm... I think I'm going to wait a bit. Some more reviews and an update would probably push me over the edge.

I would usually bite for a $.99 game that plays like Dice Wars, but I've been getting $.99 games like mad this week (Sally's Salon, Chinese Chess, Map, etc.) and frankly I'd rather put it towards a good steak.

I'm going to wait until Lux Deluxe is released. I love Lux touch, so the full version should really rock!

$.99 towards a steak? Wow, food really IS cheap on the states.

Looks like a lot of effort was put in here - you can tell by the polished graphics and their website. Giving it a try.

Well if you save .99c on games like 10-35 times (depending on your steak taste) you could get a steak.

Well I bought it and its in fact quite simplistic. A game takes about 1-2 minutes, if that. The UI is very nice, the sounds are okay and gameplay is just clicking on you oponents (basically risk but easier).

Its worth 99cents for sure. Needs to be made more complex though, with clear rules. If they wanted to charge more, online play would be the way to do it
