So much potential!
This game could be great if not for two flaws, one annoying and sadly the other fatal.
The fatal flaw in the game, quite simply, is an AI that is so simplistic, that one has to WORK at it to lose!
For example, anyone that has ever played Stratego, or any variation of the game, knows that initial setup of your pieces can be nearly as critical to winning the game as play when the game commences. But in Marshal, I took to just randomly placing the pieces' initial layout, and still I haven't lost a SINGLE game.
I wish I could claim to be the next incarnation of Alexander the Great, but sadly, I'm not even a very good chess player.
If you are still tempted to try this game though, you will also likely find yourself annoyed by the utter lack of a system that is in any way helpful when organizing your initial placement of pieces, so much so in fact, that it acts as second reason for closing your eyes and just randomly poking the screen until all your pieces have found a home.
The sad thing is, this game has a lot of potential, the hex playing board is a nice improvement over the standard square board of traditional Stratego, and once gameplay starts, the interface is smooth and simple.
If they can improve the AI dramatically, I'd happily live with the irritating UI of the game setup stage, and that part could be improved a lot, with just a little bit of attention.
Good, But Too Easy
The game is fun, but it's too easy to beat the AI. Maybe there should be difficulty levels. The game has a lot more potential.
This game has no business trying to be statego. I wouldn't complain except they charge for this game. It is way to easy to beat, they obviously have no intention on improving it. The ai is predictable and moves right into traps. Luckly I'm only out two dollars. Hate to see how much they made off of this.
