GridWars

GridWars

Steve Dekorte

GridWars is the first Real Time Strategy (RTS) game that two people can play on the same iPhone.

Most games get boring fast. GridWars is always fun because you can play against real people.

Select from four unit types: Tank, Helicopter, Anti-Air or Bomb

Units gain experience through kills and can become veterans. Veteran units are a force to be reckoned with.

GridWars' retro graphics pay homage to Tron. If you like the style of Geometry Wars, you'll love GridWars.

You can play in either single player or two players mode.

We've spent as much time balancing GridWars as we have developing it. Just like StarCraft and WarCraft, units are all unique and well balanced.
