Review: Wars Across the World

Thu Feb 28, 2019 11:16 am

The basic concept of Wars Across the World is to take a single set of game mechanics that can underpin a range of different scenario types across history, at varying...

I really wanted to buy it to play the Berlin 1945 campaign but this campaign is not available. There are 10 campaigns mentioned, 10 are on the app store, but not the Berlin 1945 campaign. The one mission on your list is Missouri 1861. I will wait for the Berlin campaign to buy it. Sounds like a really good game.

Are you sure? I'm looking at the US iOS store page and it lists the Berlin 1945 mission as being available, and I know my reviewer specifically tested it (and I gave him a promo code so he could play it). I'm not seeing the Missouri mission on the store page list though.

Which regional storefront are you using?

Yes, I can't see the Berlin 1945 ($2.99) campaign but, I do see the Missouri 1861 campaign ($0.99). I'm in Argentina. Strange the campaign shows in one country and not others.

Hi,
I'm the main developer of the game. All campaigns should be available in any country where the game is available, we're going to investigate this.

@madmax71, is 'Berlin 1945' missing from the listing in the App Store app, from the in-game store (it should be in the "World Wars" category), or both ?

Bought it and have played through the Normandy campaign on each side. I'm enjoying it but I would add the caveats that the tutorial is woefully inadequate and leaves so very much for you to learn on your own. I also can't discover a way to "preview" an enemy's units (stack) or what the battle would look like before I commit to the actual battle. Which leads to the biggest question: is there an "undo move" button? I can't find it but it is desperately needed. Since there is an "End Turn" button, playing out your moves in different ways until you are satisfied would seem to be basic. Again, maybe it's there and I just can't find it? Would have been nice to have that in the tutorial. Lastly, I'd also love the option to just pay $9.99 and unlock all battles at once. I would think having it be free and then charging $10 is better than $2 for one scenario.

Anyway, it is still a pretty fun wargame. I hope they keep adding scenarios and improving the UI and features. Great addition to the app store!

I haven't purchased the game yet, since I want to first play the Berlin campaign after reading this review, so my comment is based on what I can see on the App Store. The App store list shows 10 campaigns that can be purchase (in order):

Bulge 1944 ($0.99)
Saratoga 1777 ($0.99)
Tannenberg 1914 ($0.99)
Waterloo 1815 ($0.99)
Six Days 1967 ($0.99)
Missouri 1861 ($0.99)
Malaya 1941 ($0.99)
Hastings 1066 ($0.99)
Hamilkar 264 ($0.99)
Bull Run 1861 ($0.99)

I'm pretty sure this shows in all South America, not just Argentina.

Hope this helps!.

I hope the AI gets reworked. I find it very weak. I won Hamilkar on turn 2 as Carthage when the ‘expert’ Rome player left the fortresses undefended. Likewise in Normandy as the German I beat the ‘expert’ allies when the Mulberry supply area was left empty. I walked in and the Allied army evaporated in 2 turns. Looking forward to online play against humans.
