It seems a lot of classic games are being remade and revamped for release on mobile. Another one in currently in the works called The Bluecoats – North & South which is being remade for mobile by Microids. For those of you unfamiliar with this game, The Bluecoats is an action-strategy game set during the Civil War period.

Originally for the Amiga, The Bluecoats – North & South is actually a few gaming genres combined into one title. There is a little turn-based strategy, a little real-time combat and some rather funny mini-games to round it all out. You will be playing as either the Union or the Confederacy, battling it out against your enemy in the hopes to gain victory on the battlefield.

To fund your war efforts, you will have to do things like steal gold from railroads while avoiding third-party enemies as well such as the Native Americans who just want both armies to go away. This new version of the game will feature enhanced graphics, a new user interface geared towards touchscreens and an in-game shop where you can buy extra battlefield weaponry. This also means that The Bluecoats – North & South will also most likely be a free game to download.

Currently The Bluecoats – North & South is slated for release on iOS May 10th with the Android version coming shortly after the iOS release. You can check out the trailer above to see how the game looks and to learn more about it.
