Civil War: 1863 has launched on iOS from Scottish developer Hunted Cow, pouring more water on a blatantly incorrect Government report that suggested the Scottish games industry only employs 200 people. Either way, the game looks ideal for strategy fans, check it out below.

The turn-based game puts you in control of either the Union or the Confederacy, as both sides battle for control of America using foot soldiers, artillery and cavalry units. There is also a local multiplayer and a ‘pass-the-pad’ system.

You can check out a batch of screenshots and art here, and you can pick up the game for just 99p/$1.99 over at the App Store now.
