Ratings and Reviews
An EXCELLENT PC game that works well enough mobile
I played Wesnoth forever ago on my PC after asking around what a good game for a Fire Emblem lover is. It’s probably half way between Fire Emblem and Advance Wars, though. It’s incredibly tough to beat as a free game.
The port to mobile didn’t change the tutorial to include a different control scheme (tells you to right click and such) and the controls don’t work here quite as well as they do on the PC but honestly it’s gonna be tough to find a better F2P game on mobile than this, so long as you enjoy the genre.
Easier levels aren’t horribly difficult, one need not be a strategic genius to get through Tale of Two Brothers. And yet some of the higher difficulty levels will absolutely put your skills to the test.
I LOVE This Game!
Two reviews - a short one and a longer one. The short one is the title. Here is the long version -
I'm SICK of all the crappy games in the App Store getting 5 stars. Cut the Rope? Really? Great - if you're four years old or have the attention span of a hummingbird. I've been looking for depth. This is it. Something to sink my teeth into. The reason it gets four stars is because it is great (IMO five stars means "perfect"). Now when the wife wants me to go to the mall (GRRRRRRR!!) I say "sure". Sitting on a bench playing Wesnoth. Wife wants to go car shopping? No problem - sitting in the customer lounge playing Wesnoth. Wife wants to visit her Mom? You guessed it - sitting on the sofa playing Wesnoth.
Full disclosure - this game is not for everyone. This is old school, turn-based, strategy RPG at its finest. It is more akin to electronic chess than Elder Scrolls - plan accordingly. If you're looking for thoughtful gaming that's going to take a long, long while - this is it.
A Brilliant Game
Battle for Wesnoth is a must-own game. Intuitive controls are combined with a fascinating battle system to create a unique gameplay experience. There are a host of available campaigns and multiplayer maps on the base game itself, with scores more available from the immense add-on repository. You can even create your own campaigns using an easy-to-use map editor and a programming language designed for the game itself (Wesnoth Markup Language, or WML).
I’ve played this game since I was in high school, and have downloaded it onto every device I’ve owned. The iPad experience is a far better one than back when I would play this on a first-generation iPod Touch and the hours of playtime generated are well worth any price.
