Needs easier easy mode
by Tox11dc on 2019/09/13 21:07
After losing virtually every game, I found it is just an exercise in frustration. The AI has massive advantage in that it doesn't need to follow organization rules. They should have provided an easier level that would make the game pleasurable for new learners. Every so often I return to the hoping I'd find a way for success, but instead have 60-80% of my forces easily destroyed Why the programers would think gamers like to play losing games is beyond me
Why
by Fido1949 on 2018/12/27 02:35
No longer have all scenarios? What a rip off...why.
Needs a reset
by Grim210 on 2018/08/03 01:40
Love playing these games I have all of them 62-65. Only problem I have is that there is no way to reset your progress to zero. It's kinda nice that you can go back and play any level you want. But If you want to replay the game from the start you still have all your progress saved. Makes it hard to keep up with where you are on the play through. Even if you delete the app and reinstall it still keeps your progress. If there is a way to delete the progress I can't find it!! Very annoying but then I keep playing, so...
Nice fun
by Greywalk on 2017/07/28 22:45
Enjoyable and fun to play from both ends.
Fun little wargame.
by Mr Victim on 2017/06/26 23:12
Nothing particularly extraordinary here. Your basic 20th century hex-based tactical US civil war game with an adequate AI for what is required of it. Kinda flavorless, in terms of sound effects, special rules and music, and it could have used a good UI pass. But still enjoyable. It's fun to charge the enemy's guns and to drive his army before you. I consider my 2 bucks well spent. If you like the free version, buy it.
Save your money
by Phimbel Phanter on 2017/06/20 22:01
Game can be fun but some of its battle algorithms are junk. How is it that an army of fresh reinforcements all "miss" a weak enemy target? Yeah I want it to be challenging but not ridiculously stupid. Definitely not wasting any more money on this.
Not bad - could be better if...
by Wickedgrin1 on 2017/02/06 08:48
1. In campaign mode, you could progress to the next battle even if you lose the current one. It would be cool to see more realistic campaign results based on battles won AND lost. Having to win every battle is pretty artificial. 2. Movement is unnecessarily cumbersome, as units cannot move through each other. This gums up the battlefield as well as game play, and is not particularly realistic. 3. Would love to see a strategic map for a campaign overview.
Stuck
by Hardknock1 on 2017/02/04 01:27
The game won't advance past the "Collection" mission on "Shot and Shell" campaign.
Game won't move on
by Tjrick85 on 2016/12/30 18:22
I enjoy the game but for some reason it is stuck on "shot and shell" level 5 (collection). I have completed all the objectives several times but it will not let me move on. It says hold the control point till turn 11 and destroy enemy wagon which I have done but that is it. I have hit the refresh button till turn 50 and still it won't let me win or continue to next level.
Crap
by Tomthearcher on 2016/07/22 19:41
This game is not only crap it's misleading and if you buy this you gave your money for crap crap crap. This is thievery plain and simple
Buy it!!!
by MDiPiazza on 2016/05/26 21:59
great game for the modest price challenging and interesting very well done
Very good game!
by Keiffer711 on 2016/02/21 16:51
I play these type of games all the time. I like the strategy of defending your position and knowing when and way to attack. I'm very interested in the civil war. Learning about the battles and their outcome.
Awesome
by Plant union on 2015/09/05 04:10
Best game about civil war
Well Done

Superb turn-based strategy game!
God Bless 'Hex War' Games !!!
by Don'Kratos on 2015/06/03 07:26
I own ALL 24 games (+ Add-ons) 'HexWar' is a MUST HAVE series, for history buffs & war nutz alike... The Civil War series starts off slow, but improves greatly w/ each release. "Gettysburg" is the best of the series ...BY FAR!!! P.S. Worth every $, but the add-on missions could cost half that...
Good Game
by Flyguymk on 2015/04/18 20:02
Upper levels are way to hard.
Immersive little war game
by Joey Zag on 2015/03/22 18:28
Simple yet brilliant. Men and arms, movement, zones of control and battle odds. Infantry, cannons, cavalry in coordination amid terrain advantages and disadvantages. Tricky AI at higher levels and lots of battle scenarios. Good graphics. Good map views. Ok SFX. Charge!!! Highly recommend.

Nickel and dimed
by willmakeupay on 2015/01/28 14:48
You spend five bucks on the app, get two campaigns per side then have to pay two dollars A PIECE for the other 4 campaigns? What a bloody rip off. I'm so tired of paying for DLC.
Awesome Game
by Rlee1972 on 2015/01/24 05:48
If you enjoy military strategy, then you should love this game.
Enjoyed Strategy Game Loved Playing
by AceSonny on 2015/01/02 00:23
The game met all my expectations for a simple strategy game like the ones I had played for years, but could no longer purchase for my computer. Love it and enjoy the three different levels of difficulty. Graphic were excellent in the game with multiple scenarios set in an historic setting.
Strategy first
by Big Paulierm on 2014/10/09 02:57
I like this game a lot. Good strategy and graphics are simple and efficient.
Good tactical CW game.
by Cailfornia Bill on 2014/09/18 06:17
Adds automated battle calculations, great motion, and sounds to what were Avalon Hill games I played many years ago.
As close to SMG as I've found
by JohnLaudun on 2014/09/02 23:46
Good, good game with many improvements from the first one. I still long for the notion of lines and flanking, which this game has begun to have. I would also love the ability to generate random scenarios, especially a la SMG with the ability to specify scale.
Civil war 1862
by Duncan ok on 2014/08/30 13:40
Not enough missions and buggy when I play the confederate side. It won't let me "resume game". I always have to start over with the first mission. A disappointment since I own all the ww2 tank games and really like them. So awful I deleted it even though I payed for the full version.
Enjoyable game
by Huntington Al on 2014/08/10 02:23
Fun game that allows you to play at being a Civil War general in semi-historical situations. Keep up the good work, Hunted Cow!
Awesome Game!
by Just another American on 2014/07/13 20:39
So simple, yet so addictive..very good design. Buy it!
Great Game!!
by aldeureaux on 2014/07/12 14:56
This is a great game! iPhone graphics are good and troop movement and etc. are an improvement over previous games and those games were very good. I haven't been disappointed in a Hunted Cow game yet!
Fun, but should have more
by Fun, but should have more on 2014/07/11 15:58
I enjoy playing this a lot but only 2 out of seven campaigns to start plus an extra five dollars to spend
Great Game

My favorite game by far!! Send out more please!!
Snooze!
by M K 1 on 2014/06/08 18:03
After playing Ancient Rome by Hunted Cow, I imagined how great the Civil War would be. WRONG! This game is too easy, even with the most difficult setting. The AI really needs an upgrade. If you want a challenging game, skip this one.
Excellent Game !
by Maximussf81 on 2014/05/22 20:43
Worth the money. Turn based strategy fans must buy.
Great
by GameFanNYC on 2014/05/06 22:46
Excellent war game. Smart AI, good graphics and very addictive!
The best CW game ever
by Markman777 on 2014/05/03 23:13
That simple. Cant wait for part 3! Awesome gameplay
Unbalanced
by IanisMVP on 2014/05/03 12:53
This game has the potential to be a great game, but there is a glaring case of unbalanced ness. For example when my army was defending a point, 8/10 shots missed the soldiers or didn't do damage, yet every time the enemy fired damage was done. If you could fix this game would be 4.5/5
Awesome game
by F1 bob on 2014/05/02 00:48
This is for true military strategy gamers, just like the old tabletop board games. Realistic military action using your own strategies.
Horrible and unbalanced.
by card7 on 2014/05/01 23:28
In no way should you miss 50 percent of time and then only do a single point of damage if you hit. Yet the computer regularly does 2 or even 3 points and never misses. It becomes more a game of random hope then any sort of tactics.
Awesome!
by Ogre43EDH on 2014/04/25 05:49
Most Excellent!
No multiplayer :(
by Zelenograd Zulu poop 5 on 2014/03/21 19:51
Great game but bummed my pals can't play with
Great!
by Yellow007 on 2014/03/14 04:25
I love it. I wish it had online multiplayer and that they didn't keep making you but more more levels though. But very fun!
Fun Game

If you enjoyed the first Civil War game by these same publishers, you will enjoyed this one.
Awsome
by Brave At Times on 2014/02/23 16:07
This game is one of the best strategic games I have ever played. Great graphics and good overall gameplay. Good Job guys.
A Fun Game
by The Oklahoman on 2014/02/20 20:59
I really enjoy turn-based strategy games. This is one of the better ones I have played. Great graphics and sound, adequate AI and a good balance between simple and complex. I have encountered a strange bug where the App Store won't let me purchase the in-game additions. Very frustrating, as my problem has yet to be solved. However, the developer had been prompt to reply and courteous to my emails. I would recommend this game to people who enjoy turn-based strategy games.
The gems keep coming
by gms88 on 2014/02/03 19:04
Another bit of good work from this publisher ~ crashing appears to be due to the device more than the app ~ I had the same issue until i needed to clear mine for another reason, and now with plenty of space it hasn't happened once ~ yes, more content for the price would with anything, but come on it's really good for only $1 and i wouldn't want to sacrifice the quality for quantity anyway
Exceptional - Awesome Gameplay & Graphics
by Kentucky Cats #1 on 2014/01/29 00:54
Another great game from one of the best developers on this platform. I can't wait to see your 2014 lineup!
Another Hunted Cow Gem!
by taylorkt32 on 2014/01/28 03:17
I love all the Hunted Cow hex games. Keep them coming! Outstanding as usual. This game has not crashed on me. In fact, I own all of the Hunted Cow hex games and I have never experienced a crash. Long live Hunted Cow LOL!
civil war II
by Eilewis on 2014/01/23 16:57
crashes constantly . good if slow game, but the crashes drive me nuts
Games too short so you need to purchase more
by Buyerabc on 2014/01/11 16:16
Entertaining game but every game is turn limited (approx 12 to 15 turns) so that it limits replayability, enjoy-ability and you quickly plow through the battles so you hopefully purchase more. I won't be purchasing more scenarios because they all automatically end around turn 12 to 15 and last about 20 minutes I would possibly be interested in purchasing more if they add another option to continue past the set final turn or victory conditions or added more battles that are fight to elimination of enemy or non-turn restricted
Best turnbased combat!
by 30 000 bullets on 2014/01/06 13:33
Nice retina graphics. Engaging gameplay. UI is great. 3 levels of difficulty. Lots of missions. Just try it. It's pure combat, easy to pick up hard to put down. These guys are making great games and this one is the most stunning so far.
Civil War 2
by Chipshot3 on 2014/01/03 22:32
I like the game and play it often. Great alone as computer plays as a good foe. Historic similarities tend to limit ability of actual loser to reverse history. Graphics are fine but overwhelm the hex so you can't always understand angles of fire, especially when played first time in the woods. even when played multiple times it is confusing to determine elevations and what land hex is higher than others. Really enjoy hex games on computer as I played them decades ago on a board and this is a vast improvement.
Battlefield fun
by Ariespaladin on 2013/12/30 14:44
I like controlling large amts of troops in these "historic" scenarios. Wish the general could join artillery troops as in earlier version though. Even the easy level is way more difficult than prev version.
Great game
by Avygrl on 2013/12/28 19:41
Fun and simple game! I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of strategy games.
Ready for Napoléon!
by Likemadd on 2013/12/27 09:30
Haunted cow strategy games are the only games that remain on my phone! We are ready for more! not too fancy just the same beautiful graphics and solid gameplay with more scenarios. On to Moscow... Or Stalingrad for that matter! Any theatre any century- I'm a fan.
Civil War game
by Joseywales.Arny on 2013/12/27 08:41
I had found the first game and liked it, after finishing it a couple of times, it asked me to check This 2 C.W. game out. I did and I love it. It's a great tactical game ! IDE like to see more of this. As you go along it seems to expand some, which is great. IDE like the maps to be larger in some battles though. Over all I enjoy it very much. Check it out and see.
I like it!
by TigerBox on 2013/12/27 00:31
Good simple game that keeps me coming back.
Amazing
by Wargamerr on 2013/12/19 23:47
This game is really awesome and I can't wait for the next theme(shogun would be cool)!!! However, you guys really need to add pass and play for this and rome. I really want to promote it to my friends and this would help. Dont hesitate if you are considering to buy this game. It is definitely worth it!
good game

by Ombar2000 on 2013/12/16 12:32

1862 still crashing
by rap is dying. on 2013/12/15 19:01
Despite update, this new game is still crashing multiple times during play. Very annoying,,....
Revised Review
by Dinkydoo4692 on 2013/12/13 00:41
They fixed it! Haven't stopped playing yet and probably won't for a few years. Simply their best release.
Great game

Ok
by Jssheets on 2013/12/02 15:46
Ok game. North Africa much better. Lee Town has a bug that prevents Confederate victory.
Flawed game with good potential
by 1path2b on 2013/12/01 22:44
Have bought all scenarios for this and similar games. 1862 has some good enhancements but fails in quality (I can't play several scenarios where game gets stuck) and execution (1863 graphics were easier to understand). Will think twice about buying more scenarios next time and will go back (or forward?) to gaming with 1863.

Serious Flaw Confederate Campaign #3
by Dukeofnuke1951 on 2013/12/01 00:11
I have played this scenario 4 or 5 times. In each I captured both control points. At turn 18 I am defeated every time. I am at a loss as to what else to do aside from obliterating the enemy, which I've come close to but haven't achieved. The objectives state that I need only have the control points by turn 18. Very frustrating.

by MSgt Pepe on 2013/11/23 22:34
The blue and gray bars that decrease as units are lost is now functioning backwards after the latest update. Still a winner!
Great games
by Brittanyman on 2013/11/20 20:09
This is the best yet. Every unit isn't a 10 and every shot doesn't score. More strategy. These guys are turning out Great War games. There are many more possibilities for them to choose from, Eastern Front, Pacific Islands, Napoleonic. Looking forward to more to come.
Civil War II 1862
by Cliff in Nashville on 2013/11/16 18:59
Another winner from Hunted Cow and Hex War. Nice improvements in graphics and game play from Civil War 1863, which was already a great game.
Great game for a 1$ !
by fdugrad on 2013/11/16 01:55
I'm not one to write reviews but this game is amazing for only a 1$ . If ur a fan of this kind of game it won't disappoint
Another great game
by JGatsby on 2013/11/15 22:29
Hunted Cow makes the only war strategy games that are truly about war strategy. Very realistic, historically accurate, and fun.
Significant improvement
by Lhughes41 on 2013/11/14 21:27
More realism, harder difficulty levels, more challenging. A few small glitches. Easily worth price (I would have paid $3 to $5). Spoiler.... ... ... Assaulting in column may be OP. Might want to tweak.

I have hit the refresh button till turn 50 and still it won't let me win or continue to next level.

I own ALL 24 games (+ Add-ons) 'HexWar' is a MUST HAVE series, for history buffs & war nutz alike... The Civil War series starts off slow, but improves greatly w/ each release. "Gettysburg" is the best of the series ...BY FAR!!! P.S. Worth every $, but the add-on missions could cost half that...
Very good game!
by Keiffer711 on 2016/02/21 16:51
I play these type of games all the time. I like the strategy of defending your position and knowing when and way to attack. I'm very interested in the civil war. Learning about the battles and their outcome.
Flawed game with good potential
by 1path2b on 2013/12/01 22:44
Have bought all scenarios for this and similar games. 1862 has some good enhancements but fails in quality (I can't play several scenarios where game gets stuck) and execution (1863 graphics were easier to understand). Will think twice about buying more scenarios next time and will go back (or forward?) to gaming with 1863.
Significant improvement
by Lhughes41 on 2013/11/14 21:27
More realism, harder difficulty levels, more challenging. A few small glitches. Easily worth price (I would have paid $3 to $5). Spoiler.... ... ... Assaulting in column may be OP. Might want to tweak.
Great Game!!
by aldeureaux on 2014/07/12 14:56
This is a great game! iPhone graphics are good and troop movement and etc. are an improvement over previous games and those games were very good. I haven't been disappointed in a Hunted Cow game yet!
Great!
by Yellow007 on 2014/03/14 04:25
I love it. I wish it had online multiplayer and that they didn't keep making you but more more levels though. But very fun!
Immersive little war game
by Joey Zag on 2015/03/22 18:28
Simple yet brilliant. Men and arms, movement, zones of control and battle odds. Infantry, cannons, cavalry in coordination amid terrain advantages and disadvantages. Tricky AI at higher levels and lots of battle scenarios. Good graphics. Good map views. Ok SFX. Charge!!! Highly recommend.
Battlefield fun
by Ariespaladin on 2013/12/30 14:44
I like controlling large amts of troops in these "historic" scenarios. Wish the general could join artillery troops as in earlier version though. Even the easy level is way more difficult than prev version.
Unbalanced
by IanisMVP on 2014/05/03 12:53
This game has the potential to be a great game, but there is a glaring case of unbalanced ness. For example when my army was defending a point, 8/10 shots missed the soldiers or didn't do damage, yet every time the enemy fired damage was done. If you could fix this game would be 4.5/5
Another Hunted Cow Gem!
by taylorkt32 on 2014/01/28 03:17
I love all the Hunted Cow hex games. Keep them coming! Outstanding as usual. This game has not crashed on me. In fact, I own all of the Hunted Cow hex games and I have never experienced a crash. Long live Hunted Cow LOL!
Fun, but should have more

Serious Flaw Confederate Campaign #3
by Dukeofnuke1951 on 2013/12/01 00:11
I have played this scenario 4 or 5 times. In each I captured both control points. At turn 18 I am defeated every time. I am at a loss as to what else to do aside from obliterating the enemy, which I've come close to but haven't achieved. The objectives state that I need only have the control points by turn 18. Very frustrating.

Hunted Cow makes the only war strategy games that are truly about war strategy. Very realistic, historically accurate, and fun.
Civil war 1862
by Duncan ok on 2014/08/30 13:40
Not enough missions and buggy when I play the confederate side. It won't let me "resume game". I always have to start over with the first mission. A disappointment since I own all the ww2 tank games and really like them. So awful I deleted it even though I payed for the full version.
Great game, small BUG
by MSgt Pepe on 2013/11/23 22:34
The blue and gray bars that decrease as units are lost is now functioning backwards after the latest update. Still a winner!

Adds automated battle calculations, great motion, and sounds to what were Avalon Hill games I played many years ago.
Horrible and unbalanced.
by card7 on 2014/05/01 23:28
In no way should you miss 50 percent of time and then only do a single point of damage if you hit. Yet the computer regularly does 2 or even 3 points and never misses. It becomes more a game of random hope then any sort of tactics.
Excellent Game !
by Maximussf81 on 2014/05/22 20:43
Worth the money. Turn based strategy fans must buy.

Another winner from Hunted Cow and Hex War. Nice improvements in graphics and game play from Civil War 1863, which was already a great game.

Needs easier easy mode
by Tox11dc on 2019/09/13 21:07
After losing virtually every game, I found it is just an exercise in frustration. The AI has massive advantage in that it doesn't need to follow organization rules. They should have provided an easier level that would make the game pleasurable for new learners. Every so often I return to the hoping I'd find a way for success, but instead have 60-80% of my forces easily destroyed Why the programers would think gamers like to play losing games is beyond me
Why
by Fido1949 on 2018/12/27 02:35
No longer have all scenarios? What a rip off...why.
Needs a reset
by Grim210 on 2018/08/03 01:40
Love playing these games I have all of them 62-65. Only problem I have is that there is no way to reset your progress to zero. It's kinda nice that you can go back and play any level you want. But If you want to replay the game from the start you still have all your progress saved. Makes it hard to keep up with where you are on the play through. Even if you delete the app and reinstall it still keeps your progress. If there is a way to delete the progress I can't find it!! Very annoying but then I keep playing, so...
Nice fun
by Greywalk on 2017/07/28 22:45
Enjoyable and fun to play from both ends.
Fun little wargame.
by Mr Victim on 2017/06/26 23:12
Nothing particularly extraordinary here. Your basic 20th century hex-based tactical US civil war game with an adequate AI for what is required of it. Kinda flavorless, in terms of sound effects, special rules and music, and it could have used a good UI pass. But still enjoyable. It's fun to charge the enemy's guns and to drive his army before you. I consider my 2 bucks well spent. If you like the free version, buy it.
Save your money
by Phimbel Phanter on 2017/06/20 22:01
Game can be fun but some of its battle algorithms are junk. How is it that an army of fresh reinforcements all "miss" a weak enemy target? Yeah I want it to be challenging but not ridiculously stupid. Definitely not wasting any more money on this.
Not bad - could be better if...
by Wickedgrin1 on 2017/02/06 08:48
1. In campaign mode, you could progress to the next battle even if you lose the current one. It would be cool to see more realistic campaign results based on battles won AND lost. Having to win every battle is pretty artificial. 2. Movement is unnecessarily cumbersome, as units cannot move through each other. This gums up the battlefield as well as game play, and is not particularly realistic. 3. Would love to see a strategic map for a campaign overview.
Stuck
by Hardknock1 on 2017/02/04 01:27
The game won't advance past the "Collection" mission on "Shot and Shell" campaign.
Game won't move on
by Tjrick85 on 2016/12/30 18:22
I enjoy the game but for some reason it is stuck on "shot and shell" level 5 (collection). I have completed all the objectives several times but it will not let me move on. It says hold the control point till turn 11 and destroy enemy wagon which I have done but that is it. I have hit the refresh button till turn 50 and still it won't let me win or continue to next level.
Crap

by JohnLaudun on 2014/09/02 23:46
Good, good game with many improvements from the first one. I still long for the notion of lines and flanking, which this game has begun to have. I would also love the ability to generate random scenarios, especially a la SMG with the ability to specify scale.

I really enjoy turn-based strategy games. This is one of the better ones I have played. Great graphics and sound, adequate AI and a good balance between simple and complex. I have encountered a strange bug where the App Store won't let me purchase the in-game additions. Very frustrating, as my problem has yet to be solved. However, the developer had been prompt to reply and courteous to my emails. I would recommend this game to people who enjoy turn-based strategy games.
The gems keep coming
by gms88 on 2014/02/03 19:04
Another bit of good work from this publisher ~ crashing appears to be due to the device more than the app ~ I had the same issue until i needed to clear mine for another reason, and now with plenty of space it hasn't happened once ~ yes, more content for the price would with anything, but come on it's really good for only $1 and i wouldn't want to sacrifice the quality for quantity anyway

Games too short so you need to purchase more
by Buyerabc on 2014/01/11 16:16
Entertaining game but every game is turn limited (approx 12 to 15 turns) so that it limits replayability, enjoy-ability and you quickly plow through the battles so you hopefully purchase more. I won't be purchasing more scenarios because they all automatically end around turn 12 to 15 and last about 20 minutes I would possibly be interested in purchasing more if they add another option to continue past the set final turn or victory conditions or added more battles that are fight to elimination of enemy or non-turn restricted
Best turnbased combat!
by 30 000 bullets on 2014/01/06 13:33
Nice retina graphics. Engaging gameplay. UI is great. 3 levels of difficulty. Lots of missions. Just try it. It's pure combat, easy to pick up hard to put down. These guys are making great games and this one is the most stunning so far.
Civil War 2
by Chipshot3 on 2014/01/03 22:32
I like the game and play it often. Great alone as computer plays as a good foe. Historic similarities tend to limit ability of actual loser to reverse history. Graphics are fine but overwhelm the hex so you can't always understand angles of fire, especially when played first time in the woods. even when played multiple times it is confusing to determine elevations and what land hex is higher than others. Really enjoy hex games on computer as I played them decades ago on a board and this is a vast improvement.

IDE like to see more of this. As you go along it seems to expand some, which is great. IDE like the maps to be larger in some battles though. Over all I enjoy it very much. Check it out and see.

Love it i didnt want to buy the maps though plz make more games if possible make a empire total war game just look it up on u tube
Great game, small BUG
by MSgt Pepe on 2013/11/23 22:34
The blue and gray bars that decrease as units are lost is now functioning backwards after the latest update. Still a winner!
Great games
by Brittanyman on 2013/11/20 20:09
This is the best yet. Every unit isn't a 10 and every shot doesn't score. More strategy. These guys are turning out Great War games. There are many more possibilities for them to choose from, Eastern Front, Pacific Islands, Napoleonic. Looking forward to more to come.
Civil War II 1862
by Cliff in Nashville on 2013/11/16 18:59
Another winner from Hunted Cow and Hex War. Nice improvements in graphics and game play from Civil War 1863, which was already a great game.
Great game for a 1$ !
by fdugrad on 2013/11/16 01:55
I'm not one to write reviews but this game is amazing for only a 1$ . If ur a fan of this kind of game it won't disappoint
Another great game
by JGatsby on 2013/11/15 22:29
Hunted Cow makes the only war strategy games that are truly about war strategy. Very realistic, historically accurate, and fun.
Significant improvement
by Lhughes41 on 2013/11/14 21:27
More realism, harder difficulty levels, more challenging. A few small glitches. Easily worth price (I would have paid $3 to $5). Spoiler.... ... ... Assaulting in column may be OP. Might want to tweak.
Needs a reset
by Grim210 on 2018/08/03 01:40
Love playing these games I have all of them 62-65. Only problem I have is that there is no way to reset your progress to zero. It's kinda nice that you can go back and play any level you want. But If you want to replay the game from the start you still have all your progress saved. Makes it hard to keep up with where you are on the play through. Even if you delete the app and reinstall it still keeps your progress. If there is a way to delete the progress I can't find it!! Very annoying but then I keep playing, so...
Civil War 2
by Chipshot3 on 2014/01/03 22:32
I like the game and play it often. Great alone as computer plays as a good foe. Historic similarities tend to limit ability of actual loser to reverse history. Graphics are fine but overwhelm the hex so you can't always understand angles of fire, especially when played first time in the woods. even when played multiple times it is confusing to determine elevations and what land hex is higher than others. Really enjoy hex games on computer as I played them decades ago on a board and this is a vast improvement.
Fun little wargame.
by Mr Victim on 2017/06/26 23:12
Nothing particularly extraordinary here. Your basic 20th century hex-based tactical US civil war game with an adequate AI for what is required of it. Kinda flavorless, in terms of sound effects, special rules and music, and it could have used a good UI pass. But still enjoyable. It's fun to charge the enemy's guns and to drive his army before you. I consider my 2 bucks well spent. If you like the free version, buy it.
Needs easier easy mode
by Tox11dc on 2019/09/13 21:07
After losing virtually every game, I found it is just an exercise in frustration. The AI has massive advantage in that it doesn't need to follow organization rules. They should have provided an easier level that would make the game pleasurable for new learners. Every so often I return to the hoping I'd find a way for success, but instead have 60-80% of my forces easily destroyed Why the programers would think gamers like to play losing games is beyond me
Nice fun
by Greywalk on 2017/07/28 22:45
Enjoyable and fun to play from both ends.
Why
by Fido1949 on 2018/12/27 02:35
No longer have all scenarios? What a rip off...why.
Games too short so you need to purchase more
by Buyerabc on 2014/01/11 16:16
Entertaining game but every game is turn limited (approx 12 to 15 turns) so that it limits replayability, enjoy-ability and you quickly plow through the battles so you hopefully purchase more. I won't be purchasing more scenarios because they all automatically end around turn 12 to 15 and last about 20 minutes I would possibly be interested in purchasing more if they add another option to continue past the set final turn or victory conditions or added more battles that are fight to elimination of enemy or non-turn restricted
A Fun Game
by The Oklahoman on 2014/02/20 20:59
I really enjoy turn-based strategy games. This is one of the better ones I have played. Great graphics and sound, adequate AI and a good balance between simple and complex. I have encountered a strange bug where the App Store won't let me purchase the in-game additions. Very frustrating, as my problem has yet to be solved. However, the developer had been prompt to reply and courteous to my emails. I would recommend this game to people who enjoy turn-based strategy games.
The gems keep coming
by gms88 on 2014/02/03 19:04
Another bit of good work from this publisher ~ crashing appears to be due to the device more than the app ~ I had the same issue until i needed to clear mine for another reason, and now with plenty of space it hasn't happened once ~ yes, more content for the price would with anything, but come on it's really good for only $1 and i wouldn't want to sacrifice the quality for quantity anyway
Civil War game
by Joseywales.Arny on 2013/12/27 08:41
I had found the first game and liked it, after finishing it a couple of times, it asked me to check This 2 C.W. game out. I did and I love it. It's a great tactical game ! IDE like to see more of this. As you go along it seems to expand some, which is great. IDE like the maps to be larger in some battles though. Over all I enjoy it very much. Check it out and see.
Not bad - could be better if...
by Wickedgrin1 on 2017/02/06 08:48
1. In campaign mode, you could progress to the next battle even if you lose the current one. It would be cool to see more realistic campaign results based on battles won AND lost. Having to win every battle is pretty artificial. 2. Movement is unnecessarily cumbersome, as units cannot move through each other. This gums up the battlefield as well as game play, and is not particularly realistic. 3. Would love to see a strategic map for a campaign overview.
Enjoyed Strategy Game Loved Playing
by AceSonny on 2015/01/02 00:23
The game met all my expectations for a simple strategy game like the ones I had played for years, but could no longer purchase for my computer. Love it and enjoy the three different levels of difficulty. Graphic were excellent in the game with multiple scenarios set in an historic setting.
As close to SMG as I've found
by JohnLaudun on 2014/09/02 23:46
Good, good game with many improvements from the first one. I still long for the notion of lines and flanking, which this game has begun to have. I would also love the ability to generate random scenarios, especially a la SMG with the ability to specify scale.
Game won't move on
by Tjrick85 on 2016/12/30 18:22
I enjoy the game but for some reason it is stuck on "shot and shell" level 5 (collection). I have completed all the objectives several times but it will not let me move on. It says hold the control point till turn 11 and destroy enemy wagon which I have done but that is it. I have hit the refresh button till turn 50 and still it won't let me win or continue to next level.
Amazing
by Wargamerr on 2013/12/19 23:47
This game is really awesome and I can't wait for the next theme(shogun would be cool)!!! However, you guys really need to add pass and play for this and rome. I really want to promote it to my friends and this would help. Dont hesitate if you are considering to buy this game. It is definitely worth it!
Ready for Napoléon!
by Likemadd on 2013/12/27 09:30
Haunted cow strategy games are the only games that remain on my phone! We are ready for more! not too fancy just the same beautiful graphics and solid gameplay with more scenarios. On to Moscow... Or Stalingrad for that matter! Any theatre any century- I'm a fan.

Best turnbased combat!
by 30 000 bullets on 2014/01/06 13:33
Nice retina graphics. Engaging gameplay. UI is great. 3 levels of difficulty. Lots of missions. Just try it. It's pure combat, easy to pick up hard to put down. These guys are making great games and this one is the most stunning so far.
God Bless 'Hex War' Games !!!
by Don'Kratos on 2015/06/03 07:26
I own ALL 24 games (+ Add-ons) 'HexWar' is a MUST HAVE series, for history buffs & war nutz alike... The Civil War series starts off slow, but improves greatly w/ each release. "Gettysburg" is the best of the series ...BY FAR!!! P.S. Worth every $, but the add-on missions could cost half that...
Very good game!
by Keiffer711 on 2016/02/21 16:51
I play these type of games all the time. I like the strategy of defending your position and knowing when and way to attack. I'm very interested in the civil war. Learning about the battles and their outcome.
Flawed game with good potential
by 1path2b on 2013/12/01 22:44
Have bought all scenarios for this and similar games. 1862 has some good enhancements but fails in quality (I can't play several scenarios where game gets stuck) and execution (1863 graphics were easier to understand). Will think twice about buying more scenarios next time and will go back (or forward?) to gaming with 1863.

by aldeureaux on 2014/07/12 14:56
This is a great game! iPhone graphics are good and troop movement and etc. are an improvement over previous games and those games were very good. I haven't been disappointed in a Hunted Cow game yet!
Great!
by Yellow007 on 2014/03/14 04:25
I love it. I wish it had online multiplayer and that they didn't keep making you but more more levels though. But very fun!
Immersive little war game
by Joey Zag on 2015/03/22 18:28
Simple yet brilliant. Men and arms, movement, zones of control and battle odds. Infantry, cannons, cavalry in coordination amid terrain advantages and disadvantages. Tricky AI at higher levels and lots of battle scenarios. Good graphics. Good map views. Ok SFX. Charge!!! Highly recommend.
Battlefield fun
by Ariespaladin on 2013/12/30 14:44
I like controlling large amts of troops in these "historic" scenarios. Wish the general could join artillery troops as in earlier version though. Even the easy level is way more difficult than prev version.
Unbalanced
by IanisMVP on 2014/05/03 12:53
This game has the potential to be a great game, but there is a glaring case of unbalanced ness. For example when my army was defending a point, 8/10 shots missed the soldiers or didn't do damage, yet every time the enemy fired damage was done. If you could fix this game would be 4.5/5
Another Hunted Cow Gem!
by taylorkt32 on 2014/01/28 03:17
I love all the Hunted Cow hex games. Keep them coming! Outstanding as usual. This game has not crashed on me. In fact, I own all of the Hunted Cow hex games and I have never experienced a crash. Long live Hunted Cow LOL!
Fun, but should have more
by Fun, but should have more on 2014/07/11 15:58
I enjoy playing this a lot but only 2 out of seven campaigns to start plus an extra five dollars to spend
Revised Review
by Dinkydoo4692 on 2013/12/13 00:41
They fixed it! Haven't stopped playing yet and probably won't for a few years. Simply their best release.

Another great game from one of the best developers on this platform. I can't wait to see your 2014 lineup!
Serious Flaw Confederate Campaign #3
by Dukeofnuke1951 on 2013/12/01 00:11
I have played this scenario 4 or 5 times. In each I captured both control points. At turn 18 I am defeated every time. I am at a loss as to what else to do aside from obliterating the enemy, which I've come close to but haven't achieved. The objectives state that I need only have the control points by turn 18. Very frustrating.

Fun game, improvement over their others. Need to borrow or adapt mechanics more like musket smoke then all these would be 5 stars.

Civil war 1862
by Duncan ok on 2014/08/30 13:40
Not enough missions and buggy when I play the confederate side. It won't let me "resume game". I always have to start over with the first mission. A disappointment since I own all the ww2 tank games and really like them. So awful I deleted it even though I payed for the full version.

by F1 bob on 2014/05/02 00:48
This is for true military strategy gamers, just like the old tabletop board games. Realistic military action using your own strategies.
Strategy first
by Big Paulierm on 2014/10/09 02:57
I like this game a lot. Good strategy and graphics are simple and efficient.
Good tactical CW game.
by Cailfornia Bill on 2014/09/18 06:17
Adds automated battle calculations, great motion, and sounds to what were Avalon Hill games I played many years ago.
Horrible and unbalanced.
by card7 on 2014/05/01 23:28
In no way should you miss 50 percent of time and then only do a single point of damage if you hit. Yet the computer regularly does 2 or even 3 points and never misses. It becomes more a game of random hope then any sort of tactics.
Excellent Game !
by Maximussf81 on 2014/05/22 20:43
Worth the money. Turn based strategy fans must buy.
Great game
by Avygrl on 2013/12/28 19:41

Great game for a 1$ !

I love turn based strategy games and this turns out to be a good one. Great price at 99 cents.
Well Done
by Capt. Blues on 2015/07/19 19:01
Excellent content and gameplay.
Awsome
by Brave At Times on 2014/02/23 16:07
This game is one of the best strategic games I have ever played. Great graphics and good overall gameplay. Good Job guys.
Civil War II 1862
by Cliff in Nashville on 2013/11/16 18:59
Another winner from Hunted Cow and Hex War. Nice improvements in graphics and game play from Civil War 1863, which was already a great game.
