About this game

This is an unofficial android port of the PC game Battle for Wesnoth.

Battle for Wesnoth is a turn-based fantasy strategy game, featuring many addictive campaigns, lots of units, different races, AI controlled players, multiplayer gaming and much more.

On startup the game will need to download and install data from the internet, so be sure to have a good connection and free space on your device on the first run.

* Minimal difference from PC version

With the goal of making easier to follow official game releases, this port is focused on doing minimal modification to the PC game.
This means no UI changes.
Thus, to allow precise clicking even on touchscreens, a finger-dragging mouse emulation techinque is used. On startup you'll watch a small tutorial about it.
Also, the game needs a fairly good hardware to run on. At least a 800x600 screen and 512MB RAM are required and also a good cpu is suggested (700Mhz minimum).
Trackball and hardware keyboard will help interaction, but are not needed to play.

* Splitted data files

Game data files, which will be downloaded on first startup, are split into core, music, campaign and translations files. This way, you can choose to download and install only what you are interested into.
So for example if you don't care about game music you won't need to download music files, saving 140MB of download and memory.

The core download, which is 178MB, will allow you to:
- play single scenarios vs. another player or the AI
- download extras (campaigns and more) from the official server
- connecto to a game server to play network games

This port does not include server mode, so you cannot use this software to host a network game (but you can connect to one hosted somewhere else).

It seems like a really awesome strategy game. It's a PC port and they did a great job porting it to android. Unfortunately for me I had difficulty getting used to the controls, as you use a mouse to click on everything. I'm sure there's people out there who wouldn't mind controls like that but personally for me I found it frustrating. I'm used to touch screen controls and not dragging a mouse around and clicking with it on my small android screen. Devs did a great job otherwise with the game!

The game is good and challenging. It took me a while to find out how to scroll through menus to use my add-ons in the MP battles (which I never used for multiplayer), and how to make scenarios in the map editor (mostly the battle part, not the dialogue stuff). The stories, both the in-game and player-made ones, have been amazing. Good job.

Free. No Intrusive Permissions required. Highly customizable play experience through mods. Turn based strategy. Controls were odd at first but after a few days they felt appropriate for a port originally for pc. Only bugs I remember encountering were from mixing mods that weren't compatable. Perfect pick up, put down, play with a friend, play solo game that features built in mod resources. Truly a labor of love for the game. Also, thanks to the individual/group responsible for the port.
