WAW is a unique strategy turn-based game concept, on a boardgame spirit, which aims at simulating in one single system ALL conflicts throughout the world (and beyond) from Prehistoric times to nowadays, from grand massive wars to asymmetrical conflicts.

The Main Game Features includes:
• Game is turn-based, using the I GO U GO system, each player taking one side (sides involve sometimes more than one nation).
• The map is divided into numerous regions, with various terrains and sometimes structures (ports, fortresses, airports ...), and potentially sources of income when necessary.
• When maintenance and purchase of forces is needed, or to acquire new event cards, a simple income system is activated.
• Combat units may be from the land, naval or air domains. You will find different types, such as infantry, cavalry, artillery, guerrillas, submarines, flat tops, fighters, elephants, anti-aircraft batteries, etc ... All of which can be combined into different stacks for easy handling.
• Leaders are crucial in the game, as they have three main usages: first they give bonus to the base combat values of their stacks, second their morale values are use to check victory or defeat levels, and lastly they are necessary to launch attacks on the enemy.
• Two opposing stacks in the same region generate a battle, which is resolved in a semi-tactical way in two successive rounds. The game automatically calculates the various bonus and penalties of sides, their respective morale levels, allows for event cards play, and they each combat unit of each side shoots simultaneously (in most cases) at the enemy. Losses are taken in terms of hits and panics. The moral level of the initial army affected by the losses and panics suffered, which in turn may lead to rout, pursuit and breakthroughs.
• Multiple Events Cards packs are granted to each side, that they will use to influence all aspects of the game, such as alliances, income, movement, weather, leadership, number and quality of troops and finally many tactical aspects for the battles. This ensures both a real uncertainty in the game and a great replayability potential.

Angry / Upset ,

First Time

I am compelled to write a review for the first time because this is the game I’ve been waiting for. I love strategy games and there are several good ones in the App Store, but for me personally this one is it. Mainly because of the nostalgic feeling it has to it. It reminds me of the classic table top strategy games that my friends and I used to play as teenagers. I have purchased close to a third of the maps (scenarios) that are available and have enjoyed very much the ones that I’ve played so far. I will be editing this review with a fifth star if more maps/battles are added in future updates. Speaking of which…suggestions…Gettysburg, Isandhlwana, and Stalingrad would be a few awesome battles to recreate. Or maybe a mid 80’s NATO vs. Warsaw Pact Scenario like the movie Red Dawn. That would be so cool. Any way keep up the good work!

Five stars if they had an option for infinite turns

Let’s start with I love this game but I would love to see an option to have infinite turns. I always feel as if I am up against the clock especially in Berlin. for example the Germans can win every time if they simply pull back and defend Berlin the city until time expires. Also in many of the civil war scenarios it can be difficult to build an army especially as the confederacy. So I feel as if a option to enable an infinite amount of turns would make the game a thousand times better because then the Germans could not just fall back to Berlin and defend until the time expires and the confederacy could build up an army. Also for example in the battle of the bulge scenario the allies would be able to counter attack and push the Germans back instead of how it turns out where the Germans push them back almost to the edge and then they attack and capture a few towns then time expires. Please please add it as a option where you can enable it.

good great best ever ,

Love it

As a history buff, this game is super accurate in it’s historical events. And it is fun to play and watch as your army crushes the opponents into the dust. I wish some of the battles would be free because some people Don’t have the time or money to spend a dollar on one battle and never play it. One dollar is not a lot but all the battles, geez. But I love would recommend to anyone looking to sharpen your mind and even learn strategies. WARNING, easy to get addicted to :)edit:please add the Vietnam war, kursk, and more end of ww2 when the Soviet Union would launch offensives
