In This War Of Mine you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city; struggling with lack of food, medicine and constant danger from snipers and hostile scavengers. The game provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle.
The pace of This War of Mine is imposed by the day and night cycle. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout: crafting, trading and taking care of your survivors. At night, take one of your civilians on a mission to scavenge through a set of unique locations for items that will help you stay alive.
Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them for longer-term survival. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.
This War of Mine: Anniversary Edition
It's been two years since This War of Mine global release and we're still expanding the experience. This new free DLC, created especially for the Anniversary Edition, adds new characters, new locations to explore, and most importantly - a whole new ending, leading to a different outcome to the game. The dilemma though remains the same – how far will you go, to protect the ones you care about?
• Inspired by real-life events
• Control your survivors and manage your shelter
• Craft weapons, alcohol, beds or stoves – anything that helps you survive
• Make decisions - an often unforgiving and emotionally difficult experience
• Randomized world and characters every time you start a new game
• Charcoal-stylized aesthetics to complement the game's theme
This War of Mine experience is now broadened with "The Little Ones" expansion. "The Little Ones" explores the hardships of wartime survival as seen from an entirely new perspective―that of a child. This DLC puts you in charge of a group of adults and children stuck in a besieged city, struggling with basic necessities. TWoM: The Little Ones focuses not only on the reality of enduring war, but also on how even in times of conflict, kids are still kids: they laugh, cry, play, and see the world differently. In addition to thinking about survival, you'll have to summon your inner child to understand how to protect the little ones. Their youth, and their future, are in your hands.
• Experience the biggest expansion to This War of Mine
• Protect innocent children
• Craft toys, play with kids, and be the caretaker they need
• Meet new adult civilians in scenarios with children

Ratings and Reviews
A searing depiction of life in a combat zone, This War of Mine challenges you to keep a group of civilians alive until a ceasefire is declared. Figuring out who sleeps, who eats and who leaves your shelter each night to scavenge for supplies involves lots of tough decisions, but that’s just the beginning. While rummaging through hauntingly detailed ruins, you’ll meet equally desperate survivors and wrestle with your own conscience as you choose to help, trade or steal.
Crashes at certain places in the map
What’s the point when you scavenge everything in certain parts on the map then it just crashes when you go into it a whole day gets wasted and have to do it all over again!! Please fix I’m playing on a new iPad 2018 so it isn’t that.
The church works thank you for the update! Be great if all the other expansions were loaded onto the iPad next 😏
Brilliant but difficult!
I don’t often play mobile games, and I very rarely buy them, but this is a game that seemed too good to miss...And it truly is.
I haven’t played this on any other platform, but as far as I’m concerned this works very well for IOS. Usually mobile games are fiddly and clunky, making you wish you could play it on console or PC. It’s as simple as point and click. It CAN be occasionally frustrating when you’re in a hurry, I.E at a tense moment where you’re having to hide or escape from someone/something. Other than that...I can’t complain.
As for the story/world itself...wow...very immersive and very powerful. You quickly become attached to your characters early on with nice details about their background and what they can do. This really adds to the pressure of decision making and using their traits to your full advantage. The game does not hold your hand, you’re literally thrown into the environment and your best bet is to just trail and error your way through it at first. This doesn’t make the game in away way less enjoyable, in-fact, quite the opposite. It gives the game some seriously addictive features.
Trying hard not to give anything away, but it’s best to go into this blindly as I did. Seriously nice game!!!! Would recommend to anyone.
