*iPad Differences with the PC version
The game was redesigned from the ground up to provide good usability and playability on tablets. The dynamic campaign is replaced by 10 special missions for each side. The user interface is enhanced and more adequate for handheld devices. The tactical combat and its features were tuned only slightly in order to experience an alternative level of strategic depth and challenge on iPad. Multiplayer is not available.
