About this game

Pixel Soldiers: The Great War is a simple to play, but difficult to master turn based strategy game set during the First World War. You will choose to command the armies of either the Entente (France, Britain and Russia) or the Central Powers (Germany, Austria and the Ottoman Empire).

You will fight from 1914 to 1918 on the Western Front and Eastern Front. You will land on the beaches at Gallipoli, desperately hold or seize the important city of Verdun and try to achieve a breakthrough on the Somme.

This game is the fourth entry in the Pixel Soldiers series. Previous games: Pixel Soldiers: Waterloo, Pixel Soldiers: Bull Run and Pixel Soldiers: Gettysburg.

Use the terrain to your advantage: Keep vulnerable units behind ridges or hide them in the trees. Protect vital mountain passes, river crossings, towns and forts.

Will you push your troops forward and seize the initiative? Or will you set up a defensive line, await reinforcements and let the enemy come to you?

These and many more questions you will need to ask yourself. There are many ways to win the game.

Tap to select a unit. Tap again to move or attack!

Long press on a unit or tap a unit's description to see more information

Pinch zoom in and out of the battle to get a better view.

Long press anywhere to check line of sight.

These are the basic controls to get you started. There is also a tutorial that can be accessed at any time.

I want this game to be as good and as fun as it possibly can be so if you have any questions or ideas let me know! Email me at jollypixelgames@gmail.com

I never buy phone games, but I'm glad I made an exception. The graphics may not be the most extraordinary, but still have a very endearing style. In addition, the user interface has pretty much all of the quality-of-life features you could want. The game really fun to learn and rarely gets tedious. If I had any criticism, it would be that there is no "stay held" option for a unit, so units in stationary roles have to be manually told to hold every turn Edit: (LOS is fine on second inspection)

Thanks for the review! Ah you mean like a fortify option? That's something I can think about. Would like to learn more about what's confusing about the line of sight mechanic.

Great game.Truly. Although,I have encountered a couple of game breaking bugs that I would like to let you know of. Sometimes when it's the A.I.'s turn,they dont do anything no matter what. The only way to fix is exiting out of the game,closing it,and opening it again. Second,Sometimes when I am on one of my soldiers and I am near an enemy,sometimes I can't click on the enemy (Can't shoot,etc.) These bugs have only happened once,but I would like to see them fixed!But still,amazing game. 10/10.

Game is a lot of fun. I played through each campaign at every difficulty level and it didn't lose it's novelty. I like how you can deviate from the historical battle possibilities (think trench warfare) and fight a manuever war. I think the AI could use a little improvement at the highest difficulty, sometimes it doesn't feel like I'm fighting a seasoned tactician. Will probably buy the others in the series. Great job!
