Flag Wars App Review

image

Flag Wars is an extremely strategic game that requires focus, attention, and detailed knowledge of the rules to be successful.  But, for those who enjoy a challenge; this app can definitely fulfill that need.  Luckily, the moment that you are brought to its homepage; you are given the option to start a new game, view the leader board, and of course learn how to play.  Even though the game is comparable to other games on the market; it is still highly recommended to read the instructions prior to starting a game.  Otherwise, it’s a guarantee that you’ll be lost.  The instructions are simple by matching picture with definition; so understanding it is the easy part.  Remembering and applying is where it gets a little difficult.
