Great Little War Game - never has a game's title been more honest about its content.  As you might guess from the name, this is a strategic war game, somewhat in the vein of what one might find in a game like Advanced Wars on the Nintendo DS. Luckily for the iOS consumer this clocks in at a mere ninety-nine cents, making it a bargain for everyone.  But enough about pricetag, lets dig into the meat of the game.

It is hard to deny that there is just something special about turn-based strategy games when they are executed on well, and this is no exception to the rule.  Each turn is broken up into the span of a single day.  As is customary the player can move their players around on the board in whatever methodology that they see fit, as to best exterminate the opposition.   Mission goals can vary depending upon the situation, but most times all they will need to do is send the enemies to meet their maker,  something that is all too fun pretty much every chance you get.

Further adding to the appeal is the cartoon inspired, yet fully rendered three dimensional world in which the game takes place.  The cuteness of each character's design helps take away the edge of blowing them to kingdom come, but face it, who hasn't had a perverse fantasy of blasting a cartoon character to smithereens?  Further along in the game you unlock bigger and better weaponry, which can really act as a motivating factor to drive success.  Just be sure not to over-extend yourself in the hunt for these resources, it can come around to bite you if you're not careful.

As long as you can get past the occasional instance of camera uncooperativeness, Great Little War game very much lives up to its name.  You will get a significant bang for your buck and with more updates in the pipeline, the future seems very bright for this battle.  Suit up soldier, you have a war to fight!

UniWar is one of the iPhone's best strategy games. While it offers almost nothing in terms of innovation, it delivers a solid, carefully crafted rendition of a turn-based strategy game, complete with online multiplayer (and support for twenty simultaneous
