Good basic game

Graphics could be better. Good play with combining cavalry tactics and infantry assaults. Wish cavalry skirmishes could launch javelins and then move not just move and throw but throw and then move

Great little strategy war game

There used to be a PC game called Great Battles of Hannibal that I loved. This is that game reengineered on iPhone.

Quite a good little wargame

A real, classic hex and counter style wargame, well implemented with a competent AI at the lower difficulty levels (haven't tried the higher yet). Too many app games masquerade as wargames but have minimal historical background, rather childish game play, simply seek to put a historical skin on yet another WOW-type build engine, or try to combine strategic and tactical, doing neither realistically. This gives a feel of the tactics of ancient warfare without too much complexity--GMT's Great Battles of History meets WRG's De Bellis Antiquitatis.
