More on the way!

1.3 is in the works, with a new mission pack so large that I've created a mission editor so I wouldn't drive myself crazy entering numbers via spreadsheet!

In addition to the new update, the Pocket War team (by which I mean myself) has been given the green light from the powers that be (by which I mean my wife) to develop an iPad specific version of Pocket World at War!

The iPad version will feature all new missions, taking full advantage of a much larger battlefield provided by the screen size. In addition it will host many new features and a few needed graphical upgrades.

Last but certainly not least, I've started work on the much requested "Generals" mode for both platforms, that allows players to customise their army and improve their units between each mission. I can't say yet if this will fall in version 1.3 or 1.4, but it's coming along nicely. More details soon!

Please add a skirmish mode so we can create famous battles and live out our own. Also it would be cool to have a mission pack plus customizable Civil War and/or Revolutionary War. At least maybe the units. YOu could also have customizable maps/wars. Please start with a create your own battle mode/skirmish.

Thanks guys! HD version is coming along great - just completed an arch on better use of terrain (roads move faster, etc). Hope to get it out the door soon, but I'm trying to put a lot more mission content and features into the HD version as well.

No head-to-head multilayer planned for PWaW - that's a bear to tackle. I've got a pretty strong design for including it in a Pacific version though... but one step at a time. ;-)
