Wargroove

Post by Jeremiah Jones » Sat Feb 02, 2019 4:00 am

This came out today. It's just like Advance Wars but with a medieval theme. It's received fantastic reviews, and rightly so. You can also create your own levels (complete with your own cutscenes) and even create entire campaigns that span several courses, then upload them and share with others. I've been playing the Switch version and having a blast with it.

Is it good fun? Seen it has had really good reviews - was either going to wait for the physical version or more likely lose patience and download!

A lot of people are saying that it's a steal considering the amount of content it has and the amount of time you can sink into it. The developer also just announced an update that makes a number of improvements based on fan feedback that's coming soon.

That's great to hear! Positively loved Advance Wars on the GB advance so hopefully will enjoy this one too.

The 1st update goes live today.Here’s the info per the developer.

You can set a checkpoint whenever you want, but you can only have one active at a time (the previous gets overwritten)

Five difficulty presets, Story, Easy, Medium, Hard (Default) and Custom
