Heroic Battle is a challenging strategy board game that requires logic, deception and memory. Play against a friend on your local Wi-Fi network or a computer opponent: Probe, the Computer Stratego World Champion. You can start a new game in seconds and pause a game to complete at a later time.
Heroic Battle is easy to learn. Each game is different. You and your opponent set up your flags, bombs and other pieces and then venture out to try to capture the other’s flag. But the catch is, you only learn the identity of your opponent’s pieces during attacks. Many of the pieces—miners, scouts, the spy—have special properties that you’ll discover as you play.
One of the great features of Heroic Battle is that you can create and save your own setups. Each setup produces a different kind of game. Do you prefer fast, wide open play or a slower more conservative pace? Do you want to fortify your flag and defend it or just hide it somewhere and dare your opponent to find it? It’s up to you.
Heroic Battle is fun to play with a friend. All you need is a local Wi-Fi network, no Internet connection required. One of you taps to create a game and the other taps to join it. Simple as that.
Or you can play against Probe, the built-in computer opponent. Probe is the three-time Computer Stratego World champion, which makes it one of the best AI game engines available. Probe is suitable for play from beginners to experts and can be set to your skill level.

Please add Aggressor Advantage

I loved playing this game as a child and now with children of my own, I would like to play it with them. But a big part of my strategy is the old rule of aggressor advantage. This is when two pieces of same rank attack the aggressor wins. Even if it’s only available past the pay wall I will get it for me and my children.

High Quality, Solid Playability

This is a high quality game. It may not be flashy or equipped with high def graphics, but the playability and user friendliness is top notch. Having the ability to switch the rankings, save setups, choose whether or not Probe is aggressive, among others, is paramount for someone who sincerely respects the Stratego tradition. Thank you for a wonderful game. I play it often, having recently taught my sons who enjoy it as well, and have even defeated me a time or two. My one piece of feedback, if you can do anything about it, is to screen the ads. My young sons play this game and I have seen some pretty inappropriate ads here and there.

Solid Experience

The developers were very generous, offering a full Stratego game with now both an AI and Pass-and-Play mode. I'd be interested to see this app offer other IAPs such as piece and board themes/skins. The only bug I've encountered so far is the AI getting stuck and repeatedly moving a piece from the same position without the piece actually going back, but other than that, this app is great - way better than that "Military Chess" Luzhanqi app that was "free" (except that you had to buy to actually be able to do anything).
