  • Summary: Great Little War Game is an action-packed turn-based strategy game in full glorious 3D with a unique and comical graphic style.

    Command your army and battle enemies on land, sea and air. Select your units wisely and deploy them to take full advantage of higher ground, natural choke points
    and defensive walls.

    Tactical decisions will be made on every turn. Where should your reinforcements go? Does your base have adequate defences? Do you have time to capture that enemy Factory? Can you afford an aerial strike? Should you make another cup of tea before starting the next round?

    It's a Great Little War out there, and you'd better be ready for it!

    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... it's going to be one crazy ride!

    But fear not - the Great (and definitely NOT cowardly) Generalissimo is here to save the day, along with his indefatigable aide Jenkins. If the Great Little War doesn't get to you, their puns and hi-jinks certainly will.

    So tell us, Trooper. Have you got what it takes to win this Great Little War?

    An awesome turn based strategy game for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. If any of you have ever played advance wars then you would be very familiar with Great Little War Game's engine.

    Great Little War Game is 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.

    Great Little War Game HD is much better than a three out of five. We just couldn't award it a higher score knowing it crashes on iPad 2. If you can deal with that, or have the iPhone/older iPad, this App comes highly recommended.

    At first glance, this appears a blatant rip off of Advance Wars, but it has its own charm, and the campaigns are a challenging blast! It also has some Warcraft elements too (The RTS, not the MMORPG). I think this is one of the best games ever to come out on the iPhone. Expand

    A note from the developer:

    The crappy score we got from Modojo was by their own explanation based on the fact that when the iPad 2 was
    released, the game crashed regularly on it. I just wanted to point out that this has been fixed for a very long time now, but I can't get in touch with anyone there to ask them to ammend their score as they agreed to. :( Expand

    This is a really good game overall. The first game I have played in a long while that has a nice complexity too it, and replay value. It's pretty good fun just sitting back and sniping the enemy from a distance.
    Well worth a download.
