#1 strategy game on iPad receives new maps, bug fixes, and novice difficulty mode
LONDON - Sept. 4, 2012 - Mobile developer Rubicon Development today announced the first major update for their hit mobile title, Great Big War Game, in addition to launching the game on the Steam platform for PC. A sequel to their iOS hit Great Little War Game, Great Big War Game delivers casual strategy gaming with over 40 hours of gameplay in the single player campaign alone. Today’s update will bring nine new multiplayer maps for players to battle on, adding even more variety to the turn-based warfare. A new“novice mode” is also being introduced, where players will be able to play without the fog of war obscuring their view of the battlefield. Great Big War Game is available now on the App Store for $2.99 and on Steam for $9.99.
Great Big War Game puts players in the shoes of the strong-willed sergeant Jenkins, as he attempts to defeat his enemy while keeping his troops out of harm’s way. Players will need to adapt their war strategies on the fly, as they attack enemies and take turns moving troops around a grid-based battlefield. With land, air, and sea units, each mission offers multiple ways to crush opponents and ensure victory. Great Big War Game utilizes asynchronous online multiplayer, so players can input moves on the go and continue battling at a later time. The game also includes a 50 level single-player campaign so players can hone their skills while waiting for online friends to counter-attack.
