Warbits Reviews

Better than advance wars, warbits is an amazingly fun strategy game.

Challenging and entertaining regardless of the stupid (childish) banter between the aliens.

This game and vainglory are the only games that have stayed on our phones.

Great turn based strategy. Highly recommended.

Great products are sometimes hard to find but this is a must own on iPad or iPhone. Supremely well done! More please!

Fantastic game. Plays super smooth, has multiplayer, good soundtrack, nice graphics, and it’s effectively an AW game. IS would even have a hard time making a game this good for the phone. 5/5 for sure.

Storyline a little silly but good gameplay. Well worth the money.

If you are looking for a copy of Advance Wars on your phone, this is about as close as you can get! It doesnt have the battle cutscenes, but frankly, we didnt miss them. Even the art style feels like a modernized AW. Lots of different game modes here, and great fun. Sadly, its been several years since it was updated.

Besides a chess puzzles game we have, this is definitely the best strategy game we’ve played. And alongside an action/platformer app called Mushroom 11 this is one of our favorites. We loved advance wars on the GameBoy advance, definitely provided a change of scenery from chess, so this is an excellently designed copycat. We have beat the first two territories so far and we have not yet scene warships such as diving submarines though but hopes r still fairly high.

This is by far the best war simulator, with economic strategies to war plans, its truly a beaut. Update: they need to really update this game. Maybe add boats? Idk but this gets really boring with the same units over and over again.

This Advanced Wars clone is great, it runs smoothly and is a ton of fun. Ill admit we bought it for the nostalgia and it delivers 100%. It needs more DLC campaings but there is plenty of content to justify the 5 bucks.

Game has potential… Just make a multiplayer mode with 1 minute turns and BOOM perfect! Its a good game besides the Looooooonng turns on multiplayer.

The story is a bit silly but the gameplay reminds us of Advance Wars. We still need to see how the multiplayer is but we are enjoying it all the same.

If you like Advance Wars, you’ll like this.

Im glad some people still know how to make a good strategy game. Pick it up and play and come back to it later on the campaign.

Games like this are hard to find. It’s a great turn-based strategy game with a fun feel, and so far, no in-ap purchase BS. Worth every penny!

A very fun and beautifully polished rendition of Advance Wars that is great for a long suffering Advance Wars fan like us. Great: Nice graphics and sound design. Well designed. Actually has sniper units! Straightforward and not free to play crap. Okay: Music, no battle cut-ins Meh: Storyline, while it can give you a chuckle or two, it feels like an afterthought and the characters are all generic Schmoes. For the price, however, it seems like a great value.

Solid advance wars type game. Imagine having a game that fun one your phone.

It is very cleanly made, and as far as mobile games go, it doesn’t get much better.

Anticipated this game for over a year and it completely lives up to our hopes and dreams. Amazing depth and great game play. The latest update with great new levels and the new iMessage invites is icing on the cake.

If you love tactical or turn based strategy games, then you should like this. There is a decent sized campaign to get started with and multiplayer vs humans and, or cpus up to 2 to 4 players with many maps. They also just updated the game with a new 30 map challenge mode a year after release. So it really feels complete now.

A great take on Advanced Wars. We love it. Beautiful graphics.

Can’t be happier after deciding whether it was worth $5.. Very similar to advanced wars but the powers are way more balanced. Great multiplayer too! Just wish we could have invited and random players in custom games. Also, the jokes and humor is pretty weird.. But we skip over it most of the time anyways! Get it and play us :)

This game is super fun. A great multiplayer game with turns like words with friends so you don’t all have to play at the same time. Game play just like the original advanced wars but without water ships. Smooth and fun.

We grew up on gameboy handhelds and to this day the one game we miss is the advance wars series. Warbits has a similar style and feel, but the units are distinct enough that it feels like a new game. If you have never played the series, warbits is worth your time just on the writing alone. We lost track of how many times we’ve laughed out loud (in the literal sense) because of the writing and we’re always sending screenshots to friends. We haven’t dabbled in online play or challenge mode yet but if it’s even 10% as good as the campaign then we would say this is the best value you’ll find in a strategy game. Our only desire is that they optimize the game for iPhone X, but that’s just nitpicking at this point.

If you miss the gameplay of Advance Wars, then look no more! Warbits is the Advance Wars port that Nintendo has not yet published.

If you loved the original advanced wars, you will love this game. It takes the core elements of what made AW amazing and adds to it the game without taking anything away. Its a steal for 4.99 you will waste so much time on this game its not even far. No micro transactions!!!!! To the developers…. Thank you. You have made an AW lover so happy!!

Great game, although does experience some bugs. We wish they would work on more levels, features and maps. We would pay for them!!

For players of a certain other handheld turn-based strategy game from the GBA years, this is the homage weve all been looking for. This is about as close to perfect as the genre gets. The matches during the campaign ramp up in difficulty at just the right pace. The available units fit together in all the right ways to enable boundless options and tactics. Knowing when and how to use charges tactically is half the battle Guardian is our favorite for holding down routes and enemy unit factories to prevent further enemy action. The interactions between generals is chuckle-worthy. The menu and navigation system is downright genius. You can pick it up in a few minutes, but master it only after several hours. We love this mobile game in ways man should never love a mobile game.

Almost flawlessly executed turn-based strategy game. The single player campaign and challenges will provide many hours of play time. The AI is pretty good but not as good as a skilled human. The multiplayer is good but could use some improvements such as: rankings/leaderboards, better game matching system, and a better way to message other players (e.g. Being able to directly invite other players to a game). We never played Advanced wars, but was big into the browser-based Weewar back in the day. Weewar didn’t have a campaign, but the multiplayer was amazing. If Warbits can improve the multiplayer, then it would set the bar for turn-based strategy battle games.

We love, love, love this game even more than ever with recent addition of single-player challenges. It’s quickly become our favorite. Challenges us, gives us room to get better. We love it, and it’s so nice to see a good game that is not weighed down with ads or the need for "gems," etc. Long live Warbits!

We know a lot of reviews say this, but this game is just like advanced wars. However this game does have the unique mechanic of charges instead of the CO powers which makes the matches a lot more even since every team can do the same things. You can use the charges to suit your play style and since there are so many charge abilities theres always one that works best no matter what situation you are in. It also is very smooth and we have yet to run into any glitches at all. The only thing that we really would want added to this is a map maker which would add endless amounts of extra content. Overall its very good and relies entirely on good strategy and getting the best use out of your charges.

The game is Great just like Advance wars. Except they’re not naval units, all players have the same powers & no 3 player maps. Because some time you just don’t have a 4 player but would still like to play a free for all.

Wish to see Warbits+ as soon as possible.

Yes its got all the same idea s but its really a lot more. Anyone who has been a fan of this type of turn base tactics will love this.

Its an amazing game in the Wars series style, but its more than just another clone. Well thought out, tactical and strategic play backed up by beautiful graphics and matchmaking puts it at the top of the genre.

Reminds us of Advanced Wars, which is great.

So what if Im about 6 years late on this review? We started playing Warbits again recently and it hit us that we’ve never left an honest review for it. Its never too late we guess. That being said, this game is LEGIT. It has been one of our favorite iOS games since it was released years ago, and has been one of our favorite strategy games in general. We’ve played a lot of them, so please take that as a big compliment. We wont drag this review on, because other reviewers have already praised it for its gameplay, visual style, music, dialogue, etc., etc., but DANG we love this game! The only super minor complaint we have is that its not full screen on our iPhone 11, and that once in a while little glitches will happen here and there, like charges flying off the screen upon earning them, and a few icons not lining up properly. Im still giving it 5 stars though, because for a game thats been around this long, its still super fun and looks great. Devs, please create more games, or magically update this one, because bravo! Sincerely, thank you for this gem.

Its Advance Wars! Well worth it if you enjoyed those games.

This is a really fun version of Advanced Wars.

Fans of Advanced Wars will find this a suitable upgrade.

Well designed. Excellent UI. Good sense of humor throughout the campaign. You get a lot for an extremely reasonable price!

If you love Advance Wars, youll love this. Great game.
