Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?

I'm really just curious: I remember hearing a few years ago (2012?) that GMT were working on an iPad version of the game, however, I have not heard anything more recently.

Anyone know is that still in the works, or has the plan been dropped altogether?

They might be putting it on hold until the Twilight Struggle app releases.

Playdek dropped out as developer at the beginning of 2014. I don't recall hearing any news on C&C:A since.

Between development on Dominant Species and Twilight Struggle, I imagine GMT's had its hands full.

Is your score positive? You win! (Some players win more than others.)

I thought I'd seen something like that recently.

Still can't talk about any details on this, guys, except that the deal has been signed. Hopefully within a few months I can share more info.

Good news!

This game plays great on VASSAL, I wouldn't mind buying an official version from GMT to have an even better experience on a computer (I don't have iPad...).

The wargameroom module for ancients plays very well (and enforces the rules) but is unfortunately horrible to look at which kind of kills the joy of playing. If this engine was just made into an app and better graphics added I would be very happy.

A C&C:A iOS app would be an instant buy from me. I'm guessing all the expansions would come in the form of IAPs?

All I can say is that Memoir 44 plays greatly on my Surface 4 tablet with touch screen technology.

While I like CC Napoleon and I am planning to acquire the Ancients version, I am not very fond of Memoir 44 though.

An Ancient version should be no problem on touch screen technology.
