A greater turn-based game than its more little predecessor
GBWG is a smart and fun strategy turn based game, similar to Worms if you want to see it that way, though it'd be better to call it something closer to old tactics game. On a board (or tiled map) you have to move your units, take over strategic points and wipe out your enemies. Don't let you fool by the lovely cartoon characters, it's a game deeper than it may first look like and gives raise to complex strategies and long-term planning. Like if it were a chess game, you'll have to learn how to move the pieces first, but there's much more later.
User Interface is quite comfy, at least in a huge tablet, and it's fun to enjoy the little slices of humor Rubicon has left here and there. This complete version comes with 50 levels and all the features, becoming one of the sure bets of the season, unless you want to check the lite version first.

Fix for crash when device sleeps/task switched.
* Fixed stability issue introduced in previous version.
* Added better sized GUI graphics to 1080p devices (fixes postage stamp menu screen layout).
* 1.4.4 version would wipe game progress if it was too old. *fixed*
* Further fix on GUI rendering and water on Samsung devices with the newer firmware update - this should cover them all now.
I love this game. It is so addicting and the replay value is enormous. I've even bought some in-game stuff to continue (extra maps) to find new stuff. What really is killing it though is that it kills my phone battery! Playing on maps, I'll plug my phone
I need more levels!! Hungry!! Maybe a 'Great Big Ginormous War Game' is in the works?
After an initial 5 star rating, I'm changing to 3 stars, because although game concept and mechanics are good, the whole game comes down to the maps, they are all boring mirror maps making this game feel more like a chess match than an actual war, everyth
The campaign is even better than GLWG, but I was really looking forward to online play. However, the ridiculous "Hail Mary" totally ruins it. It encourages turtling, which is ironic since the campaign rewards aggressive play. If the Hail Mary was an
The only thing better is if i could get a map editor and make custom battlefields
I've been playing this game for a year now. And while I have played many other games as well I keep coming back to this one. It's just plain old fun.
Unfortunately needs a lot of memory, on the Asus TF101 it needs a re-boot before running, and need to force stop every other running process, then single player runs OK, but "pass and play" freezes and crashes on most maps.
