Great Little War Game Makes Its Way To Android – Top Notch Graphics, SFX and Gameplay


I’ve been waiting for what seems like a lifetime for Rubicon Development to finally release Great Little War Game onto Android. As soon as I heard it was released over the weekend, I purchase the title in the Market without so much as thinking twice. GLWG is a tactical turn-based strategy game for Android along the lines of the Advanced Wars for the Nintendo Gameboy/DS. But don’t mistake this as some cheap knock-off, GLWG features top of the line 3D rendered graphics capable of pushing your smartphone’s GPU to its limit. In fact, the game looks so great, it’s actually recommended you turn the graphic quality on “low” to keep your phone from melting in your hands.

Currently, GLWG’s only multiplayer is a 2-player pass-the-phone mode but the developers did mention they are working on network multiplayer to be featured in a future update. With amazing turn-based gameplay, gorgeous visuals and sound, Great Little War Game is definitely not a title you want to pass up on. You can find GLWG right now in the Android Market for $2.99.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. Just bought it. It’s definitely really sweet looking, but the graphics aren’t quite as good as I expected them to be. They’re beautiful, but from the description, I thought they were going to cripple my poor phone. Gameplay is amazing, but it runs perfectly on ultra on my Droid 2 Global. Did I miss something, or is my phone really capable of running this?

    1. Runs fine on ipad 1, 4 don’t see why it wouldn’t work on your Droid 2. Love it both on the ipad and S2

      1. That’s sweet that it runs on iPad as well. I just thought, by the way it’s described in the market, that the graphics were way better than they are. They’re still awesome, but I thought they were going to be so amazing that my phone couldn’t handle it.

    2. Haha! I just read a lot of comments from users in the Market saying it was destroying their devices. Maybe it runs better on certain processors than others.

      Either way, the animations, realistic water textures, real time shadows, normal mapping, etc. This game looks great!

      I dunno.. Maybe it’s just my fantasy of Advanced Wars finally getting some HD treatment that’s making me go nuts =p

  2. Seems like phandroid was payed to make this article.

    1. After reading and skimming a second time its clear Phandroid was payed to write this. A bit to over enthusiastic. Kinda disappointing.

      1. Shut up.

      2. Have you never read Chris’ writing before? Everything he writes is enthusiastic. He’s a man that truly loves Android and gets excited when we get great games, GLWG being one of them. A little trust goes a long way, my friend.

        1. Couldn’t have said it better myself. :D

      3. See, you’re just a dumbass who doesn’t have taste nor enjoy’s a fun writer. Chris is the shit. Either eat his shit or laugh at it.

        and I’ve done alot of laughing lately, how about you?

        1. I’ve eaten a lot of……wait, nevermind.

    2. Shut up A-hole ..!!
      This is a great way to find good titles!!!
      Haven’t you heard if you don’t have anything nice to say shut the effen up…..!!!

    3. Hi, Mitchell. You must be new around here.
      My name is Chris and there are a few things I love in this world: Android. Video games. And baby Jesus.
      If the article “sounded over enthusiastic” I assure you it was 100% genuine. Advanced Wars was my all time favorite handheld game and the fact that I can play it now with 3D rendered graphics in HD, on my smartphone makes me want to scream. In fact — I did.

      Oh — and Phandroid doesn’t get paid to write articles. If we did, I’m sure we all would be writing up iPhone stories everyday o_O

    4. “payed”…..hmm seems like someone should have stayed in SKOOL, lol

  3. fail on bionic!

    1. Can you mail [email protected] about this please? It works here. More likely a Market problem ime., which we’re working on.

  4. Instant buy! I’ve been looking for a good Advance Wars turn-based strat game forever. It plays great on Ultra on my MyTouch 4G overclocked with SetCPU running CM7 RC1.

  5. not into turned based games

  6. Thanks for a great write up, Chris. The brown envelope is under the table, wink wink.

    (Yeah I know, I shouldn’t encourage the deranged)

    1. Shhhhh! Mitchell could be watching! o.O

      *takes money and runs*

  7. I’m putting in the three bucks, you better hope I won’t regret for your sake, Mr. Chavez. :P

  8. Advance Wars is possibly the greatest handheld game ever. This is going to be awesome.

  9. looks excellent, great fun, too
    too bad i’m getting a “license invalid” on my Asus Transformer, so i had to get a refund :(

  10. Great game, and looks awesome on my EVO 3D. Just was not paid to leave this comment lol.

  11. Man, played the hell out of advanced wars!! Does this work for the transformer? I’m scared to run this on my atrix damn thing hit’s 109 degrees all the time as it is, lol!!!

  12. $3 for this. Its a no brainer. Downloading now.
