Rebels & Redcoats recreates the pivotal battles of the American War of Independence. The latest strategy game from Hunted Cow Studios brings the classic Decision Games board game to iPad; and is the first in a series of games to come from this exciting partnership. Take command as either the American colonies or the British Empire and shape the future of a nation, with 10 historical battles.
You will face the same tactical challenges as generals such as George Washington and William Howe, with missions of varying size and objectives, and 24 different combat units. As with previous strategy games from Hunted Cow, every effort has been made to capture the look and feel of the warfare methods, equipment and uniform of the day, and this title is no exception. In these battles players will also find the detailed and accurate maps, orders of battle, and named regiments from the well-loved Decision Games board game.
The hex-based game system features a large variety of infantry, cavalry and artillery units, generals and terrain types. Use your combined forces to outmaneuver, outwit or outshoot your opponent. Victory awaits you, Commander!

Ratings and Reviews
Hunted Cow may have no bigger fan than I (check the reviews). But that cannot excuse the fact that this latest release is nothing short of a dismal money grab.
I looked forward to Redcoates based upon a Pocket Tactics plug. A huge disappointment. What was delivered was a grossly overpriced expansion of Peninsular War (itself a copy of ancient Battle Rome). Nearly identical. At least there, there was more than an hour of distraction to be had. Boo.
This is what selling out looks like.
Good but not many scenarios
This game has some new options, like the ability to combine units, that make it a bit better than some of the other Hunted Cow titles (I have them all!) but it fell short by only giving about 10 scenarios. You can play for either side, but that's still only 20 scenarios and other HC games offer much more, and some like Ancient Rome offer $0.99 expansion maps. It's a fun game but feels a little skimpy.
Very good game. Needs more scenarios
