Needs a reset

Love playing these games I have all of them 62-65. Only problem I have is that there is no way to reset your progress to zero. It's kinda nice that you can go back and play any level you want. But If you want to replay the game from the start you still have all your progress saved. Makes it hard to keep up with where you are on the play through. Even if you delete the app and reinstall it still keeps your progress. If there is a way to delete the progress I can't find it!! Very annoying but then I keep playing, so...

Fun little wargame.

Nothing particularly extraordinary here. Your basic 20th century hex-based tactical US civil war game with an adequate AI for what is required of it. Kinda flavorless, in terms of sound effects, special rules and music, and it could have used a good UI pass. But still enjoyable. It's fun to charge the enemy's guns and to drive his army before you. I consider my 2 bucks well spent. If you like the free version, buy it.

Fix Civil War 1864 Gold, it will not open!

I have all of the civil war games that haunted cow and hexwar has to offer. Love that you guys are updating the games, but this one has some bugs that irritates me. When I am trying to find a battle as the confederacy, after looking at only two battles they all change to the union side. I paid $1.99 for 8 more battles that are full of bugs and some of the battles have the same map as older battles. So you don’t get 8 new battles, So fix bugs please! I love these games but now I don’t want anymore! The last update for 1864 made it crash as soon as it is opened, please fix
