North&South receives update

Price promotion for version 1.1 in the AppStore

Eschborn, June 22, 2012 The new adaptation of North&South– The Game gets off to an impressive start with its release a few days ago in the AppStore. Download figures took the App from bitComposer Games straight to rank 1 in the overall iPad charts.

An update for North&South– The Game is now available to correct a bug that was cutting short games prematurely: If players conquered their 10th or 15th state in a victory on the battlefield– or by occupying a Western town– the game would pause and a hidden pop-up would prevent the game from continuing. This bug has now been fixed.

The American Civil War ended 147 years ago tomorrow, June 23, 2012. To celebrate this historic day, North&South - The Game will be available from the App Store at the special offer price of just€0.79!


Besides the strategic gameplay, the reinterpretation comes with a new multiplayer mode that allows you to enjoy the game fun in pairs, either locally on one iPad or online on different iPads using the matchmaking function. North&?South– The Game also contains some brand new features like the action-packed“mole game” and controls that have been developed specifically for the iPad.

Like the original, North&South– The Game for iPad gets top ratings for its charming graphics– carefully redesigned in a contemporary new style - , for its very unique humor and for its ingeniously combined action and strategy elements.

A comprehensive single player campaign ushers the player through the Civil War years. Aspects such as weather, ships, Western cities, Indians or Mexicans influence the course of events, requiring the player to adapt his/her strategy. Several multiplayer modes provide excellent gaming in pairs– just apply the matchmaking function!
