Formation is inspired by the classic board game Stratego. It features online play (with a friend, or random opponent), and a pass & play mode.

The goal of the game is to capture your enemy's flag. Build an army that is ready attack your opponent, but also be careful to hide and defend your own flag.

Each side starts with 40 secret pieces, so every game is different. The pieces initially being secret allows for complex strategic and tactical play, especially when bluffing the value of your pieces, or discovering the value of your opponent's.

Buy now and relive your childhood nostalgia, or play for the first time!


The feedback I've received so far has unanimously requested an AI to play against. Look for computer opponents to come in the next update!

Also, if you would like to play against me, send a challenge to 'Jellyfish'. Thanks for playing!

Seems good but

Can't play because there is no AI.

Doesn't work

This app has such promise. It has big playing tiles, which makes it easy for larger, aging fingers to manage. However, it just doesn't work over the network. My husband and I set up a game, him on his iPad and me on mine, over our LAN, and the first move syncs but then both games on the two iPads become unresponsive. In the second game we tried, it got confused and showed the first move corm the first game and then become unresponsive. I'm really disappointed because the game has such an easy interface and concepts that it could be one of the best games for aging people who don't have the best eyes or ability to touch with enough precision to avoid mistakes. So many other multiplayer games require pinpoint precision on small items on the screen or are hard for older people to see.

5/5 stars

Amazing... Intense! Works great over wifi w/a friend

Works flawlessly on my iPad... Games can get super intense. It is a perfect iteration of Stratego! For anyone who wants to play friends over the internet, this game works as advertised:
Played for many hours(weeks) without a single crash. Regarding the negative reviews, it seems that the only complaints are from users who play on the same LAN or who want to play alone.

This game is a must have for all who like turn based multiplayer games like Words with Friends or Strategery. It's a mystery to me why it's not on the top of the charts. In fact, it is so good that I am giving it 5 stars despite the following:

Developer: please note that the Marshall *can* kill the spy no matter who attacks first. The rules state otherwise. Hence either the rules or the spy/Marshall is incorrect. Please fix!!!
