I used to play Military Madness on the old TG-16 about 15 or so years ago. It was easily my favorite game on the platform, so when I saw this available on the App Store, it purchased it instantly. For those of you who are familiar with the game, the burning questions are probably 1) "Is this the Military Madness game we have been waiting for?" and 2) "Is it worth it?". Well my friends, the answer is YES - this IS the Military Madness game we have been waiting for. Let me immediately say that the benefits of having a touch interface on this game are PHENOMENAL. This is not another rehash of the original 32 stages from the first game. There are 48 stages in this one, and all of the ones I have seen so far are new. The game mechanics that made the original game so amazing are all in place (Terrain, surround, indirect attack, support bonuses etc..) but there are newer units to be found in the later stages as well. I have also found this one to be a bit more challenging, but I think that's a good thing. So to answer question 2 - It is absolutely worth every penny and then some! (At $5, it's less than 11 cents per stage) If you are a fan of the original, you shouldn't even be reading this far. Stop wasting your time reading - buy the game and spend your time playing!
Recognize. If you ever owned a TurboGrafx-16 system (I didn’t), you need this game. If you ever had a friend with a TurboGraphx-16 system (I did and I was so jealous of that rich mothe...), you need this game. If you are as old as Abe Vigoda, you need this game. If you don’t fit any of the above categories, but you want to see why the Advance Wars series even exists, you need this game.
The original Military Madness was a turn-based strategy game released in the late 80's that was well before it's time. In this lovingly-crafted conversion - unit composition, movement range, defense, firepower, and placement on underlying terrain actually matter. That and your own knowledge of the enemy troops and armor. These missions are no cakewalk, either, and if you go into thinking they are, you will get pwnd. It seems more difficult than I remember, but I loved this game as a kid and I love it now. It’s not polished really at all, but I actually think it plays better than the original, because the touch interface is much better than the broke-as-a-joke scrolling cursor.
BTW, this is not the Psone or PSP remake with the fancy-shmancy new cinematics; this is bare-bones 16-bit pixel goodness and I love it. If Herzog Zwei ever comes out for the iPhone, I will cry sparkly unicorn tears.
A must have for TBS fans!!!
This is a great game, no doubt about it. If this game wasn't so hard on my battery and the battle animations were a bit quicker I'd give it 5 stars.
Hudson, please optimize these issues as this is a fantastic game and Im very proud to have it on my iphone.
