Strategy without bells and whistles

Think Risk in 10 minutes, with simple/straightfoward gameplay, and streamlined graphics (the screenshots are all the variety you get). It's good for a quick strategy game, but don't look for a ton of depth here, Strategic War is intended to be easy to pick up with little to no learning curve. There are plenty of high quality complex strategy games on the app store with a high price to match, this is a barebones strategy game with a low price that proves to be effective and addictive. Got more then my 2 dollars worth here.

Great Little Risk-Type Game!

I bought this ridiculously inexpensive App of one of my Old Favorite board games yesterday and have played it several times. It’s an absolutely GREAT version, albeit simplified and with no options to vary how the game begins. However, it’s a very good value (I hesitate to compliment that aspect in case they decide to increase the price!! LOL) and alot of fun.

It would be nice if there were some Rules help but if you know how to play the RISK board game, you are good to go. Really love this one!

Adequate Risk Simulator

There are better Risk sims out there. And more expensive ones. This is cheap, and you get what you pay for.
The Card system is hard to understand, setup is either pick your countries and assign your armies OR everything random.
The AI isn't great. The hardest setup seems to be "all Intelligent" opponents, and even then it is difficult to lose unless one deliberately tries to win using an unlikely strategy, such as occupying Asia or Europe. Things get a bit more competitive on "random start" plus an unlikely strategy. . .
Spiffy graphics are a plus.
