A TRUE war-game released for the iPad... finally!
Well, just yesterday a game I was waiting for was released for the iPad, and I thought I would post about it here, because if you are reading this blog, you want this game!:)
The game is Ultimate General: Gettysburg. It is a fairly simple war-game that sees the player take control of either the Rebs or the Federals and fight through the three days of Gettysburg.
The game is a bit simple; units don't run out of ammo, for instance. But the controls are smooth as silk (nothing beats the touch-and-drag type of controls on an iPad) the research is decent and the graphics are really, really pretty; you will recognize every building on the battlefield, which is a great treat. Elevation is crucial to getting your guns in the right place, and fog of war makes you send out scouts to make sure there aren't any enemy in that dead ground to your left!
Overall the game is a GREAT little war-game, with a lot of content and beautiful controls and graphics. I highly, highly recommend it... so far it is the best war-game I've played on the iPad, along with Battle Academy from Slitherine.
So go give it a try!
