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.
Love it. Great strategy and tactics game. Not just for an android a great game period."
They should make a great big war game based on starwars
One of the best tablet games I've found. Fun with a lot of strategy. Definitely worth a download.
Good tactical game
Some levels confusing victory conditions otherwise great.
Perfect for handheld as it's a quick pick up and go for a one off mission, though can quickly turn into a gaming marathon!
My wif'e's favorite game. Short games with just enough strategy and simplicity.
