Lines of Battle: Quatre Bras 1815. Brunswick hussar.
There have been quite a few wargames released recently for Android that I missed (because I didn't write any of them, although I am slowly progressing a brigade level Gettysburg game), so for benefit of fellow wargamers, here they are...
Joni Nuutinen has now released 8 wargames (and 1 fantasy game) in his Conflicts series. The original Operation Barbarossa and Panzer missions have been joined by:
Demyansk pocket - about the pocket battles outside Moscow in winter early 1942
D-Day 1944 - about the famous 1944 battle for France
Battle of Bulge - the 1944 German attempt to re-do what they did in 1940. Only in winter.
American civil war - Focusses on the southern states
American Revolutionary war - 1776 whole theatre.
Eastern Front: This is a scaled-up (i.e. more hexes & units) version of his Operation Barbarossa
All of these are hex and counter style games.
VR Designs are responsible for a lot of PC wargames (most recently the mammoth Case Blue). Their original Small General, which was abstract tanks and infantry hex and counter game, is complemented by SG: Eastern Front, which is same idea, but WW2 scenario based (one of which is Case Blue).
Turns of war is a scenario/campaign tactical WW2 game, using squares rather than hexes.
Hexgame is a port of an old 90s wargame, with a WW2 theme.
Populus Romanus - Hex and counter, Roman campaigns. Free demo version has expansion against the Etruscans scenario.
ASL Tools - not a wargame, but a helper for Advanced Squad Leader.
The above are all historical wargames, there are an awful lot of fantasy/sci-fi wargames which I haven't tried because I'm a grognard - Here is a brief list (mostly free, or free versions): Neuroshima hex, Great little/big wargame, Wesnoth, Pirates and traders (by the author of Brief History of Rome), Hex Kingdom, Abyss wars, Mage war, etc.
