We're writing the 15th anniversary of the North American Civil War and have decided to bring back one of the all-time classics of the 80s to iOS with your help: North & South. Take a couple of minutes to look at the game at

Make sure to check the screenshots section and it will become much easier to go through the requirements. You may also want to grab an Amiga emulator and give the game a shot yourself if you have never heard of it. It's fun enough to compensate for the 30 - 60 minutes needed to explore it and play through a couple of times.
iPhone / iPod and iPad (HD) running iOS 4.x
Action / Strategy
See screenshots. "Les Tuniques Bleues" characters need to be replaced.
@ Intro and end sequences (winner / looser); sparsely animated (like original)
@ Civil War Era Marches (will be provided).
@ Settings screen to configure character, year, extras (Mexican, cloud, ship), multiplayer.
@ Map screen with strategic troop movement and events (train, ship, Mexican, Indian).
@ Battle scenes with tactical troop movement.
@ Overhauled control scheme that makes use of swiping and multitouch capabilities.
@ Overhauled graphics that keep the comic / fun character of the game intact. **
@ Improved (trees, structures) and more varied (terrain) battle scene maps.
@ Game Center Support to enable multiplayer games (2 players).
@ Multi-language. Easily translatable text structure (translations will be provided).
** If you can not take care of the design, we can provide that part given you reduce your fee accordingly.
Omitted Features (easier Development)
X AI: Playing the computer was never much fun. This game is meant for multiplayer.
X Arcade scenes: Capturing the fort and train can be omitted in v1.0. Results randomized.
X Auto Battles: Won't be implemented (at all or at least) until arcade scenes are added.
We would like this project to be finished two months after the bidding process has been completed.
Deliveries / Payment
@ All product rights will be our full property after payment.
@ We prefer to use milestone based payments or payment in full on completion.
@ Final payment when Apple has approved the application (we handle posting).
@ Please PM the code "Blue vs. Gey" to confirm that you have read until here.
Summary: The project should capture the essence of the 80s game while omitting features that never were too popular to begin with and / or would make development much more difficult. Graphics and sound are to be updated so to appeal to audiences today and the control scheme needs to be adapted to make use of the features that iOS offers.
