The iOS, turn-based strategy hit, Great Little War Game HD (also Great Little War Game for lower resolution devices), has gotten a nice update recently bringing the current version to 1.5. The game now boasts a new campaign called “Call of Booty” and five brand new skirmish maps for you to battle on.
Great Little War Game is a top-down, 3D strategy game with turn-based combat. The game offers fantastic visuals that look like they were taken out of a comic book or cartoon.
You can battle enemies on land, air, or the sea with a lot of different weapons at your disposal. Send foot soldiers out or use tanks and ships to crush your opposition.
The game has a lot of tactical aspects to the gameplay as well. You will need to take advantage of terrain in positioning your troops to gain an upper hand. There are even natural choke points, ambush spots and defensive walls for you to utilize to overcome the enemy.
Here is the list of the game’s features (via the app description):
- Campaign mode
- Multiplayer mode

There are two versions of the game depending on which iDevice you own. The HD version of the game is made specifically for the higher-res screens of the iPhone 4 (Retina) and iPad, while the standard edition is meant for older devices. The HD version is also a universal app while the standard edition needs to be upscaled on an iPad.
Also keep in mind that the game comes packed with a lot of content — and more with the latest update — however, various campaigns and gameplay elements can also be purchased via in-app purchases. Overall, it is a must have for gamers who enjoy turn-based strategy titles.
