Great but could be better

I got Trenches about a year ago and its still fun. Even better than the second, in my opinion. Multiplayer, although it sometimes crashed and glitched, was great with friends. Now I have friends who wanted to download it and cant since it was taken off the app store! Why it was taken off, I don't know, but nobody plays multiplayer online anymore and I cant play with my friends via bluetooth, so all there is is single player. This would easily be 5/5 if: 1. multiplayer glitches, crashes and other problems were fixed. 2. It STAYS on the app store! 3. More interesting maps, weapons (like flamethrower or being able to stab people?), just something new to keep the game from being forgotten. P.S. In Co-op, it was hard to tell which people you own and which belong to your friends.

Fun, Small Flaws

This is a great game. Definitely worth the dollar. My only troubles are that it wasn't made for the iPad, so it doesn't fill the whole screen, and when I would drag two fingers to retreat, the men would stay still. I had to do that a few times before it worked. Other than that, this is a great game. I highly suggest that you get it.

This App is very well done! The campaigns are fun as hell, the skirmishes keep fast, instant combat, there's like 6+ game modes, and ZOMBIES! Just when you think it can't get better, they have multiplayer! If you have a friend, make him / her get this game. You can fight zombies together, or fight each other! GERMANS OR BRITISH Overall, I love this game, it is fun, I'm going to get the second one as well. I'd probably recommend that one too! This genre is awesome to me! Stop scrolling through other reviews and get it!
