Love the game however...

I really love this game it’s simple yet challenging and I play it all the time however I deleted the game and re-downloaded it and all the extra mission I bought I no longer have access to. I’m very frustrated because if I press “Restore Purchase” nothing happens, and neither does “Buy Now”. They are completely inaccessible, it won’t even let me buy them again. I’d deeply appreciate a fix to this so I can access all the missions again, and I don’t want to buy them again either. Now I’m stuck with less than half the missions I had play. 😕

Could have been better. Did not like having to constantly change the infantry into a formation, wasting a turn; and a lot of missed opportunities to engage the enemy because of a specific unit not being able to move. But I do enjoy this game a lot.

Favorite Civil War game

Really enjoy the Hunted Cow Civil War games, they remind me of the old school hex style war games but with app like gameplay. Wish there was a little more topographic variety based on actual battle fields and the graphics took a dip in 1863. But for moving and engaging on a tactical level, very fun and you learn (or you lose).
