    First post, sorry if this happens often.

    I saw a new game appear in App Sniper called Strategery, and it actually looked pretty interesting (a sort of Risk type game).

    Then I went to find it in the app store, and I couldn't.

    In iTunes, it appears, but gives me a US Store error when I select it.

    Does anyone know why new apps appear like this but then can't be selected in either App Store or iTunes?

    This is also happening a lot (not always) with another game I am considering buying: 2079 by Eric Tang.

    Just try clicking it again. I've noticed that it's been doing that since yesterday. If you try again it'll probably go through.

    Anyways, I was eyeballing startegery too. It looks like an interesting take on the game.

    I'm guessing the name came from Will Farrell's George W. impression from before he was president. He was asked to sum up his campaign in one word. He thought about and answered "strategery."

    I'd be interested to know if this is a snazzier version of the much-lauded Dice Wars. If so, I'd certainly pay $.99 for it.

    i did a search, and it show'd up, but could not locate it
    so maybe it will just take a lil bit of time to populate the servers

    if it is anything like Dice Wars, than i shall purchase it

    Bought this game way back when I first got my ipod touch and it was totally worth the purchase. It's a really fun game when you're trying to think of something to do to pass time. It actually becomes quite addicting once you first play it.

    It's just like the classic game risk, you try to conquer all the countries and be the best out of everyone.

    This game would be insane if you could play online with other opponents or even on wi-fi :/

    Unfortunately the latest update for the game did cause a glitch to occur, but the developer has already fixed it and is awaiting for apple to review the new update and allow it through.

    I would recommend this game to anyone! Highly enjoyable.

    I actually keep both on my iPhone- they are of a similar genre, but two totally different games

    Maybe, but I probably spent only $1 on Strategery, which is a great game and I loved it, and Lux Dlx is $8. I doubt it's 8 times better.

    They announced Risk along with a bunch of other titles at E3, I'm hoping it will be out before the end of the year

    EA doesn't have the best reputation as a publisher in terms of continued support for their games. Hopefully Risk comes out perfect from day 1. Otherwise we'd be waiting a very long time for updates.

    I have both Strategery and Lux Dlx. Both are very good. Lux Dlx is more involved and complex while Strategery is good for a quick game.

    ha. So there is a thread about Strategery on toucharcade now. Cidstrom, Sumul and I worked on it before Isotope. Like people have said before it is a stripped down version of Risk (similar to Dice Wars if you ever played that game). It is a fun game, but yeah, unfortunately we introduced a pretty bad bug in the last update. We submitted a fix to apple so hopefully it will be approved shortly.

    There have actually been several threads on the game since its release. This one is the main game thread from back in December http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=1998&highlight=strategery

    The problem is I didn't have $8 to spend on it and nor did I really want to spend too much on a game at that time :p

    I'm just patiently waiting for apple to approve the update on the bug fix so I can get back to dominating. :D

    Considering all of the maps you get with Lux DLX, $8 is a fair price IMO

    remember most of the iphone audience is still on the 99cents thought process no matter the content
