This is the thread for talking about, and arranging, games of Slitherine's Battle Academy

A reasonable first topic: who all actually sprang for the $20, and who all is holding out because it's just too darn expensive for them? More generally, are higher priced games going to become more common on iOS, or is this going to remain an outlier?

I bought it and gladly. There may not currently be a tier of $20 games that sell huge numbers of units but I think there could and should be. This game is meatier than all but the handful of predecessors who chose an absurd price (King of Dragon Pass, Avadon). Here's hoping that success at the high price point draws more complex projects. I bet folks like Shenandoah Studios are watching closely...

Hi! I've play the demo on my Mac, but I was wondering what it's like on the iPad. I personally found the gameplay a little too simple but that was I think just the demo? U clik your troops go there they open fire then move on...I felt I was being played but I take it there is a lot more depth to the whole moving to where & cover etc?
I'm playing Combat Mission battle for Normandy and man...I got it all wrong in the first few turns & got wasted! I couldn't get any observation onto enemy targets with my observers & arty...great feel to the game. I'll be trying again & again though.
