Editors' Notes

Being able to strategically outmaneuver a computer-controlled opponent is one thing, but when you bring human cunning into the equation, things get mighty deep. Subterfuge will have you mining resources, dispatching submarine fleets to capture outposts, and recruiting powerful specialists. But watch out for opposing players with their own devious agendas. The game’s most brilliant hook—diplomatic negotiation via a built-in chat feature—lets you forge (and torpedo) alliances over the course of epic matches.

I love this game

Sucks it didn’t blow up as it is a very well executed idea for strategy/conquest game. I’m trying all the time to get my friends into it, so I can maybe help try to revive it

One of my favourite mobile games ever.

I am really upset about the ipad app for the game. I would love for it to work in landscape mode. If not in full screen then atleast in the centre of the screen in a smaller window. I can’t give any less than 5 stars cause that’d be unfair to the devs but i’m still hoping someone sees this and does something about it.
