Peninsular War | UI & Logo Design
Peninsular War Battles is the latest strategy game from Hunted Cow Studios, placing the player at the forefront of Napoleon’s campaign to conquer Portugal and Spain. Play is possible as the British, French or Spanish across 5 campaigns with a total of 40 missions. Peninsular War Battles is the most advanced wargame from Hunted Cow yet!
The missions represent well researched representation of the major battles of the period with a full range of tactical options available to all the commanders. There are 64 different combat units, each in an accurate depiction of the uniforms, colours and flags of the period.
The in-depth game systems allows infantry units to form line, column or square while light infantry units may skirmish in open order. Victory in most battles will go to the commander most able to utilize the combined arms benefits of infantry, cavalry and artillery to the best effect.
Peninsular War Battles was a collaborative design, (alongside the very talented Kyle Zborowski). Following on from the commission of Civil War 2: 1862, in a completely different setting, it was important that the design reflected the new environment, but still had elements that would be familiar to fans of the series.
Visual elements were built from the ground up using reference from the era to create a colour pallet & styles library that would suit the setting. Ornate frames, & gold metallic elements helped to distinguish the UI, create a unique identity for the interface.
As with CW2, this title was a load of fun to work on & it was great to see it arrive in the AppStores this week. The gameplay introduces some fun new mechanics & I although I am no expert (as you can probably tell from the footage above!) I am sure the new additions will be greatly received by fans of the strategy series. Available now for both iOS and Mac, scroll down for highlights, & the download links.
