Front Wars is a turn-based strategy game. Take control of allied troops and revive the great battles of the second world war in a tense campaign against the german army. You can challenge your friends online on Facebook, Gamecenter or by the passing the device.
The two armies take turns building and commanding units on a grid-based map. The objective is to defeat the enemy army. There are two ways to defeat an opponent: destroy every one of the opponent's units on the map or capture the opponent's headquarters. The terrain on a map affects unit range of movements and the defense attributes of units stationed in that terrain. Capturing cities and enemy buildings will give the player new fundings at the beginning of each turn, with which the player can create a variety of new units (soldiers, tanks, planes, ships...) to gain power over his opponent.
The game features:
* Revive great battles of the second World War in a tense Solo Campaign
* 26 missions
* 15 different Units : Soldiers, Tanks, Planes, Ships...
* 3 difficulty levels
* Cross Platform Online Turn-based multiplayer using Facebook
* Beautiful HD Graphics

Good game, but some flaws
First, I just want to point out ALL of the glitches with the Game Editor. I love how you put it in this game, but there are so many times my game glitches or crashed. Like I was creating a game, and I decided to test it, so I played and there were bridges EVERYWHERE.
This is a great game, and the campaign is pretty simple but hard. (and fun) I do have a couple ideas to make it a better game:
1. More buildings, decorations, etc
I think that you should add some more “War-themed” building and decorations, such as bunkers, Which could be captured but be able to shoot, and trenches, which could provide cover for anyone in them.
I know that the Germans used a lot of trains in WW2 and WW1, so I think you should add some. My idea is that a train station should be a new building. You will be able to attach train tracks, which could work like roads, out any side. If road and train tracks meet they could pass through. When you enter the train stations menu, you can build a train. Select one, and the train will appear inside the train station. Then you can move across any tracks connected to the station. Ideas for types of trains:
-Cargo Train (Light health, Works like a landing craft or transport truck)
-Light Armored Train (Light Health, Light artillery attack)
-Heavy Armored Train (Heavy Health, Heavy artillery attack)
Commanders are slightly more resilient, and deal a little more damage. Not too much else to say
I tried this game thinking it would be like Advance Wars. It doesn't come close, but it has the potential to get there. I tried to buy the map editor and the Africa campaign, but they don't work. That is a definite need-to-fix. If this game gets more attention and some updates it could become a very good game.
As far as this type of game goes, this one is a bummer.
Most battles go like this: the enemy has way more resources than you, find the trick, spend 50 turns making it work.
Most boards, all you’re doing is watching the obvious play out. That’s not to say it’s always obvious, but when it becomes obvious, it’s incredibly boring. So much marching so much just getting there. And you gain access to units that you seem never to be able to produce. So if you need to use your subs strategically, you need to use them strategically ONE SPECIFIC WAY. There’s no room for your play style.
