Trenches [99¢] has had an impressive history on the App Store since our initial preview of the game. Originally released on Christmas Eve in 2009, Trenches was soon joined by the not-quite-a-lite version Trenches Boot Camp [Free]. A while later, Stenches: A Zombie Tale of Trenches [99¢] joined the fray, effectively turning Trenches in to a game franchise worthy of spinoffs and pseudo-sequels.

Later, an impressive online multiplayer mode was added, fully utilizing both Game Center and voice chat. Check out the Trenches online multiplayer trailer:

The recently released Trenches Free For All [Free] features everything the full version of Trenches is capable of, including online multiplayer. The catch? A small in-game ad. Other than that, there's absolutely no restrictions of any kind. If you get tired of the ad, you can always spring for the full version of the game for a buck. If you download any version of the game and are looking for people to play with, swing by the thread on our forums where all things Trenches including strategy and online matchmaking is being discussed.

    I downloaded the free version over the weekend because I saw it advertised on the AppStore under "Gorgeous Games".

    Is this the game that ripped off the concept of Warfare 1917? Sorry, im new to the app world and this just makes me disappointed.

    • Krispy

      You mean because it is world war 1 and side-scrolling tactical? Try it for yourself and see if it is or not.

    I also see a Stenches Free for All game listed at AppShopper—but listed as removed. Maybe it will return (it says multiplayer is planned).
