Awesome turn based strategy!
I cannot stop to play mission until all enemies will be eliminated :)

And remember, this is indie game from year 2006, so do not expect anything special from it.
Just play for fun ;)

I'm not really used to writing long reviews so I'll just give a short review here..

Intro
War on Folvos is a strategic turn based game with hexa tiles i.e 6 directional tiles. It is a very strategic game and little mistakes can cost you alot.

Story
There isn't any thing Good or too emotional in the story. It's just a normal story which I would rate 6/10. You can play on two sides though which means two stories.

Gameplay
The gameplay is very good. I didn't find any glitches or bugs in the game so far. And it is very smooth, just like an indie game should be. Gameplay is 9/10 from me.

Graphics
Graphics are pretty good. The animations and the models are very nicely made. It just makes the game look like a nice indie game. So Graphics 9/10 .

Overall, I would give it 8/10 . A very cool game that you should play if you like strategic games (Specially the hexa ones :3).

Cliff Notes, Worth it but the start was weird.

This game was released in 2006 so the graphics are to be expected of an indie game from that time that is to say decent to good and fitting for the story but not going to win any awards. The combat as far as I could play was fairly simple. However it did seem that combat would become far more involved with higher tier units and larger total fighting forces.

Difficulty, most of the difficulty for me came from the interface itself. In order to select or target a unit you have to click the actual unit model rather than the hex they are on. This is an important distinction. I also found difficulty in locating my units on each new level. Neither of these have put me off the game however.

Plot, weird. Okay now to the actual review. I walk in thinking I'll be helping the Folvos army, then load up the tutorial and plot twist. Okay helping Vasgalan empire now. Read decsription another plot twist helping Folvos again. So if you like plots that aren't mandatory and will make you very confused pick this up.

There used to be a game destroying bug of doom however it appears to have been patched as part of the steam integration. Well done Lonely Troops. So even if the game may never get multiplayer it appears that at the very least bugs making it unplayable are going to be fixed.

Its Battle Isle 1.5 with better Graphics (aged well, nothing too fancy). Runs well on my laptop.
Didnt care about the story too much, but honestly who does ?
Not too easy, not too hard. (have not finished it yet)

I like it.

p.s. There's a demo on the Devs website, so you can try before you buy.

Slightly slow paced turn based strategy game. Decent visuals, good audio, solid although slow gameplay mechanics and interesting unit variety make this game easily worth £3 in my opinion.
