  • Summary: *** Introductory Price!!! ***

    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?

    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.

    Given a few caveats, Great Little War Game fills the void once filled by Advance Wars, and that's honestly one of the biggest compliments I could pay it.

    As long as you can get past the occasional instance of camera uncooperativeness, Great Little War game very much lives up to its name.

    Great Little War Game delivers a nice single player campaign with twenty missions, a "pass and play" multiplayer mode and a skirmish mode to test our skills. Some elements of the gameplay work great, some others not, but overall you can't miss this game if you're a RTS fanatic.

    In terms of core gameplay, Great Little War Game is a delightful, challenging title. Unfortunately, the production values are a bit uneven and drag the rest of the game down. Still, it's a lot of fun, and strategy fans should enjoy it.

    Just wondering why the game isn't showing up on the panel of current iOS games to the right?

    It has a score (thanks!) worth to nudge on
    there.

    I need to type 150 characters, but am not enough of a schill to fake my own review, so I hope this is enough!
