If you have been paying attention, you’ll know I’m rather bullish on the idea of transforming classic hex and counter boardgames to the new tablet platforms of computing. I haven’t had a good visual example to visualize what a wargame on the Ipad would look like.. until now. Keg Bearer for the Ipad (from “Snowpunch?”) looks to be a simple, whimsical game of armed raiding parties stealing beer (think of the old “Bugman’s Brewery” scenarios in Warhammer Fantasy) What’s important to observe (below) is the interface.. Look at the way the Ipad figures out movement, combat and Line of Sight for you. I think this looks awesome.
