    I'm pleased to announce, fresh onto the Market, a classic strategy game from Rubicon Development. Great Little War Game.

    [​IMG]

    The game was originally out for iOS, reaching #1 in the strategy charts. With over a million downloads and many 100% reviews, it's the game you need on your phone.

    The (definitely not cowardly) General and his team now make it onto Android, to continue the good fight, invade neighbours, deal mayhem and drink a little tea.

    Get it here

    Thanks everyone, and enjoy! :)

    Well I'm about to buy it. It will make up for me not having much time to help you nail those pesky bugs. ;)

    It's not in the list, sorry. Not sure exactly why, but probably because it doesn't support open gl 2.1 - that's the usual reason ime. There's nothing we can do to help either, I'm afraid - our engine can run on a lower verison of open gl, but experience has shown that the game itself isn't smooth enough on older hardware when doing so.

    On a brighter note, we've climbed to #20 in the new games chart. :)

    I sent an email and got no response, so hopefully you can help. I bought the game and installed it on my phone and tablet. The game was clearly better on the tablet so I uninstalled it on the phone from the settings menu. Then it was removed from my tablet and I got an email about a refund, which I didn't want. I tried to buy it again but it won't let me, it says 'I already have a pending order for this item.' It's been a few days and I still can't buy it. Under purchase details it says purchased and refunded with no errors. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Just bought it today. Probably won't play it until I finish a couple other games I have but wanted to show my support. Nice job on a well polished release!

    Didn't get the mail, sorry. Didn't do anything wrt refunds either so I'm not sure what's going on. You can mail me directly if you like and we'll look into it.

    I think it's a Market problem. I've been experiencing similar issues the past several days. One time it said I had an update on a purchased item, but when I tried to do an update it wanted me to 'Accept and Buy'. This issue lasted for several days until the Market "fixed" it. Yesterday when I tried to get a refund on another game, it showed it as purchased but uninstalled. It took several hours until the status changed.

    We've made great progress on fixing the teething troubles now. Most of it was caused by many phones enforcing a 30Mb download limit.

    v1.0.2 is now out and seems to work great given the sudden dearth of support mails. :)

    Enjoy and thanks

    Just a quickie. We're at #33 in the all games chart right now, which pleases me immensely, thanks all. :)

    What's the furthest you've got through the missions so far?

    BTW, in case no one has mentioned it - my SGSII installed the PowerVR package (as previously discussed might be the fact that I'm using CF3D to mess with how my handset is seen by the Market). Good thing is that the error message now identifies the installed package, so I could choose the right drivers in CF3D. Now runs great :) I'm using 16x MSAA and despite that its running cooler than before, and startup time is much reduced.

    What I like about this game is that I can play it in small doses. I like having the option to save my progress, then pick up where I left off later on. Rubicon Development absolutely nailed this one.

    As an aside, I can't wait to get a more powerful phone so that I can run this bad boy on Ultra. My EVO can only handle Low:( The game still looks great on Low though!

    We've made a few fixes, most notably:

    1) We've shrank the APK's down to below 28Mb so this should now install on all compatible phones and tablets.

    Why there are some awkward manufacturers out there not honouring Android's 50Mb recommendation, I really don't know. We've had tons of mails along the lines of "The game won't install despite having a 128 petabyte SD card". Well now it will. :)

    2) There were some regular crashes on HTC Sensation and a couple of derivative devices. This was with the very latest firmware only, but we've fixed it now in any case. The new firmware gl driver has an "unplanned feature" in it! :)

    3) For the slower tablets out there, we've upped the frame rate considerably. If you've not found it yet, there is a slider in the settings panel - put it on "low" and enjoy!

    There are some other tweaks and munges, but those are the headlines. If you were affected by any of the above, please accept our apologies and thanks for your patience.

    EDIT: We had to order in an HTC sensation so have not seen one before. Man, that is a seriously good machine. The sensation is a really appropriate name!
