Sales, like buses, seem to all come at the same time. At the same time that Steam announce their Monster Summer Sale, Matrix Games announce their own summer sale.

Review

Sometimes great riches can be found in the most inexpensive of wrappers, and so it is with Tercio to Salvo, the very first expansion module to Matrix/Slitherine’s impressive PC game, Pike and Shot. That said, it’s now time for BLUF – Bottom Line Up Front – as some disclosures are appropriate here. I love this game series, something you might have noticed had you read my previous review of the main game itself. Thus if you are expecting a positive review, you would be correct. If you’ve not read the previous review, grab a mug of your favorite libation, surf over to the earlier review and then sit a spell and read. In doing so you’ll not only set the stage for a look at this new expansion, but likely concoct a whiff of gunpowder in the air as well. And you will also start to understand why I love this infuriatingly addictive game.

Wargamer.com regulars will by now know of my ongoing addiction to Slitherine’s Pike and Shot game, and may have even read Bill Gray’s effusive review (see it here) – indeed, some may well be heartily fed up of my enthusing. Tough – there is more to come … It appears that Byzantine Games’ Richard Bodley Scott has been beavering away (as is his wont) and has already created a significant expansion to bridge the gap between the Italian Wars battles and the Thirty Years Wars battles that the game initially shipped with – oh, and some English Civil War ones as well of course.

Review

Slitherine have released an iPad version of the game, so doughty pikemen, musketeers and cuirassiers (plus a whole host of assorted sidekicks) can play the game almost anywhere. I’m not going to give a full in depth review of the game as it is a straight port to the tablet platform and Bill Gray has covered the game in full; what I’ll do it look at how well the game performs on the iPad. For reference I’ve used an iPad 4 for this review.
