LONDON – Mobile developer Rubicon Development announced the launch of Great Big War Game on the iTunes App Store and on Android’s Google Play for $2.99. The sequel to their iOS hit Great Little War Game, Great Big War Game blends casual-yet-robust strategy gaming with a lighthearted graphical style reminiscent of plastic toy soldiers.  With a greatly expanded single-player campaign, brand new online multiplayer and a whole raft of other cool new features, there’s plenty to please the 2.5 million strong player base from the first game.  Download Great Big War Game today:

Great Big War Game puts players in the boots of the ambitious sergeant Jenkins as he attempts to placate the dimwitted general while keeping his own troops safe from mortar shells and rifle rounds.  Using casual tap-and-swipe turn-based strategy, Great Big War Game lets players take turns moving their troops around a grid-based battlefield, adapting war strategies on the fly as they attack enemies with land, sea, and air units.  The game includes platform-independent multiplayer, so friends can seamlessly wage war between Android and iOS devices, as well as between forthcoming versions for PC, Mac, and Blackberry Playbook.  This will enable gamers to begin skirmishes from an iPad in the morning and continue on a PC during lunch, with the battles playing out asynchronously like the popular “With Friends” series. Great Big War Game also includes a 50 level single-player campaign, so gamers can battle while waiting for an adversary to counter-attack.

Great Big War Game features:
