    Yeah, looks like a shoddy Uniwar ripoff.
    Why spend so much time making a game that already exists? He coulda spent just as much time on a game thats original. I don't know...
    If anyone knows anything, they'll get Uniwar instead of this.

    Isn't UniWar in itself a ripoff/clone of other games?

    Yup and no online mode in this game. Uniwar is currently only a dollar more than this, and online mode alone is worth that dollar, let alone the polish.

    And plus, Uniwar has tendencies of going down to $.99 so just wait and you'll get a much better deal.

    Does Ware Generation and INFINITE CHALLENGE imply some sort of map generation/randomization?

    I don't this could even compare to Uniwar, but we shall see, I guess.

    I think it looks good, but the timing of it's release isn't the best.

    Come on, don't say it's a rip off because it uses hex fields and is a strategy game. ALL of them look this way! Even the ones I played on DOS centuries ago.

    Regarding the game: I lost interest after seeing that it has no online mode. In Uniwar I don't care for the campaign, I only play online. It's just great to spend a few minutes each day to move the troops around. It's the perfect pick up and play game!

    I think calling this a Uniwar clone or ripoff is unfair, as Uniwar (as I feel with Zenonia) isn't exactly anything totally unique or ground-breaking. Uniwar is not the be-all, end-all turn-based strategy game.

    That being said, to release a game reminiscent of Uniwar this soon after its release, and offering nothing substantially *more* than Uniwar offers (and, in fact, offering significantly less with less polished graphics, no online/multiplayer mode, and what appears to be a much shorter campaign) is rather silly on the developer's part.

    Although for its price tag, I'm sure it'll get a few hits, and I'm sure some people will enjoy it. Then again, who knows, this could be a port of another game, as Slay was, and people jumped all over slay calling it a Uniwar ripoff despite it being around for years and years beforehand, and only sharing a gernal hexogonal look (which a vast number of games offer).

    If we're going to go as far as saying looks alone are what make games clones, then Halo is a Wolfenstein 3D clone. Nazis aside. *cough*

    I'll consider taking one for the team. Who knows, it could play really well. And who knows what updates may bring?

    I think the dev should have released it for free to give uniwar some threat. Then raise the price with an update bringing online

    I'm a sucker for these games and brough it. After one game here is what I think.

    Pros. The AI doesn't take ages to think. I think for UniWars the wait for the AI is the most anoying thing.

    Different types of bases. It's a nice strategic element.

    Cons.
    Menu interfaces aren't intuative, you have to clip to go through maps not drag. It took me a bit to work that out, I just assemed only one map was available for the campaign.

    Sounds are anoying and weird. I really don't need to hear the capture base sound and display when the enemy caputes a base.

    There is no fog of war. This takes out a massive element of the game.

    The tiles are just a bit too small, no zooming option makes you frequently touch the wrong square.

    You have to watch your units move though every tile, which is slow.

    There are 12 different types of squares all which give your unit different stats... oh that square is dark camo not normal camo.

    Combat seems serious bugged. It doesn't take health into account until the end. So attacking a strong unit with 1 heath, you can deal it 5 damage and it will deal you 5 damage as well...

    The options to go into the menu loses your game.

    It doesn't save the game when you press the menu button!!!

    I guess I'm a bit negative, but the game seems a bit too much a like a beta, definetly not worth the price atm.

    Isn't it fringing on some sort of copyright law that games are ripping off of each other? This is so obviously a Uniwar rip-off, in fact it's barely any different from Uniwar other than poorer quality. The developer of this game didn't even bother changing the hexagon tiles (at least make them squares or something to show it's different? Lol), and the units are almost exactly the same, just with different looks and facing sideways. How exactly does the Apple app rules work when it comes to copyright laws and the quality of apps anyways (specifically the apps that are so pointless and stupid)? -.-';;

    There should be a law that bans people like you for not using their brain. Do you honestly think that Uniwar is the first game of it's kind? Come on...
    If devs were sued for replicating game genres, we'd have one game for every genre there is.

    And there should be a rule banning people like you for not reading thoroughly before replying. Did I say copyright infringement on genre? I clearly stated that the content between the two games was much too similar to be considered a "different" game. If you take one game, keep everything exactly the same and simply change the title and some unit graphics, it's considered a "different game" and you can start selling it through a copyright freak like Apple?
