Civil War 1863 Gold iPad game

Civil War: 1863 Gold is a brand new version of the original Civil War: 1863 iPad game, with all the campaigns and downloadable content from the original game with no In-App purchases.

This new app should make a lot of users and potential users of the game happy, as you get the whole game for a one-time payment of $9.99 – which offers a good savings over buying the original at $4.99 and then paying around $12 for all the additional campaigns.

This is one of the more simple, fun strategic war games for the iPad. I did a review of Civil War: 1863 for iPad a few years back and was very impressed with it – and I remain a big fan of the iPad war games put out by Hunted Cow Studios.

Here’s a little slice of the App Store description for Civil War: 1863 Gold, and some of its content and features:
