Civil War: Battle of Petersburg reviews and comments

Really too elementary. Two tactical Variants, position themselves behind the opposing pieces and exploit the shells nothing ranks, high position or encirclement, really nothing. Getting Around on the vintage map remains very fascinating. Sometimes there is rin * * * * * * a bit, at every battle the pieces to move are really many and between rivers and toponomastic the retinas thank. Brought to the bottom to legitimize the 50 Centesimini spent. I put him on the wrist, but you, if you want to tap a hole, I'm fifty cents.

A simple but really nice game! Chess with units, i love it! I like the hot seat mode. Can't wait to play it with friends, which could be very strategic i think. Yes, it is simple buuut if you want to play it seriously, it is really strategic! First i just clicked on the units to attack other units, but then i realized, that it's not a good idea to attack with my friendly unit, which has makes 7 damage, an enemy with 6 defense... lol ^^ Sooo you need to look, what moves they have, what reach etc... And for 99 cent! It's simple, yes, maybe the content is not more worth than 99 cent ... but you will have fun with that!!! So i want to say: it's cheap, it's fun, buy it! :D To the developers: the same game with a ww2 scenario, that would be awesome!!!!!! :)

One of the few crafts on Unity that pleased me! Despite its simplicity, it is still interesting to play it. It is very easy to Adapt and understand what is happening. The Civil War in the USA 1864 year. You are on the side of the U.S. and you have to emerge victorious in 4 battles: The Battle of the Funnel, the Second Battle of Petersberg (Bermuda-Handred), the Battle of New Market and the Battle of the Collard Harbor. You're Feeling a catch, aren't you? If We turn to history, it turns out that all these battles won the KSHA... So turn the same time backwards and change the story! To do this, your breakthrough includes 4 units of a certain number: Infantry, Cavalerium, Artillery and General. Take care of everyone! The gameplay Itself befits turn-based strategies. Each unit has a certain level of speed, health and damage. Everything is simple and balanced. The units Themselves are moving on the gecko map. Each Gex has its own modifier. Somewhere bonuses for defense, and somewhere bonuses to the movement. To understand where and what bonus-look at the map behind the Gexom: Somewhere the river, and somewhere railroad, etc. by the Way, in this game you can compete tactical thinking with others. If you get into the list of top 10 players, you will be given a gold general. A Trifle, and pleasant. Network game is not here, but you can invite a friend and play with him on one computer. Overall, I was very pleased with The game. Short, but very good. No More to tell about it. For the strategist it will be the best purchase for 29 rubles.
