The last Great Little War Game was a popular title on Android, and here comes the sequel with more turn-based combat. It looks a lot like the original, but there are a number of enhancements in this one. For example, it's "Optimised for iPhone, great on iPad." Wow, that sure is an impressive feat for an Android game.

Jokes aside, Great Little War Game 2 has the same solid turn-based gameplay, but adds features like splash damage, portrait mode, and destructible buildings. You're basically moving your troops and vehicles around to wage a great little war one turn at a time. The graphics have also gotten a nice boost this time around.

This game has no in-app purchases or ads, so once you pay the $2.99 fee, it's all yours. That's a refreshing change of pace, but you may be disheartened to hear this is apparently the final installment in the Great Little War Game series. Maybe they can just make Great Medium War Game next?

    Does anyone know of a "REAL TIME" strategy? almost all of these games that claim to be RTS are just turn based like Great Little War Game or crappy kiddie pay to win games like clash of titans or whatever thats called, What about real ones? you build soldiers i real time and fight? Lucky beeps at iOS have a real Red Alert Port from EA, we used to have Star Front Collision from Gameloft but its not compatible with any device newer than the galaxy s -_-
    And no i dont want to run Red Alert in winemu on my device, the controls are horrible.
    Does anyone know a REAL RTS?

    O-oh, GLWG 2! Great! All 3 previous games are pretty sweet and have their share of difficulty, I'm expecting no less from the sequel

  • Jephri

    These are A+ titles. Love this franchise.

    Hey quick question, does this game have NO landscape mode? I actually haven't bought it yet because of the review stating such in the market... I don't like playing portrait mode games most of the time....

    • Your Mother

      don't mind the reviews. the first 3 are amazing so I trust the developer. I just purchased it just because it's another great little war game and I know it's going to be good.

    • Rubicon Development

      It is portrait only, sorry. We think it works nicely though, obv bias notwithstanding.

      • WhoaManWtF

        Aww, that is extremely disappointing... I own the other two but I am going to have to ponder on this one, it would have been a no-brainer with the option to go landscape though.. Thank you for the response though!

        • Rubicon Development

          That's a shame, hope you come down in favour.

          The design goal behind this is to provide a more streamlined pick up and play game, playable one handed without a complex gui to navigate. I was in two minds about this portrait move until we tried it and I now wish all the others worked this way.

          But then of course I'm biased to hell! :)

    @mikeone33 No eta yet, we have a ton of stuff to do. It is on the list tho, so hopefully not too long away. Sorry that's not more specific.

  • Rubicon Development

    Thanks for picking this up, Ryan. I'm happy to answer any questions. Well, most. :)

    • Cherokee4Life

      thank you. $2.99 for a game with no in-app purchases. I just bought it, even if I never play the whole thing. I love to support developers that do it right. Thank you

      • Rubicon Development

        Great stuff, thanks. Hope you enjoy. :)
