‘Battle for Wesnoth’ Ready for Action, Released Into App Store

Last night, Kyle Poole’s Battle for Wesnoth was admitted into the App Store after a seemingly long wait.  This turn-based strategy game is definitely more than any iPhone gamer has ever seen, and it’s probably one of the longest games in the App Store.

Battle for Wesnoth features a campaign mode that potentially covers hundreds and hundreds of hours of gameplay along with cross-platform online multiplayer, meaning you’ll be able to play against people playing on the PC version.  Also, there is a skirmish mode for those that are in love with this particular game mode, and it’s more complete than you think.

We had a hands-on preview with this game not too long ago, and you can check it out here.  Embedded below is our hands-on video of Battle for Wesnoth, along with some screenshots to get a feel for what the game looks like.  You can check out their website for more information on the PC and Mac versions along with the ability to download the PC or Mac version for free.

Battle for Wesnoth is priced at $4.99, and the next free content update will feature 24 new campaign missions along with 150 new units.  The current version features over 200 campaign missions along with over 200 different units.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
