The hit turn-based strategy game has landed on Steam! #1 strategy game in the app store in 46 countries.
Approachable, absorbing, detailed and yet visually impressive, Battle Academy aims to revolutionize the strategy games market with a blend of intuitive design and compelling gameplay. This quick-paced easy-to-learn strategy title boasts an impressive number of unit types and different missions and delivers endless replay value because of cleverly designed online multiplayer system, built in scenario editor and a host of user mods and scenarios.

Battle Academy is an action-packed tactical strategy game where you have to take command of a select group of units and lead them through battles on the many different fronts of World War II. As a commander, you will have to employ real world combined-arms tactics in order to secure victory. This means you will have to lay ambushes to surprise opposing forces, use suppressing fire to pin them, flank hostile armor for maximum effect and, if necessary, assaults the enemy to clear strong points. In some cases you will also have access to powerful off map artillery and air support with the capacity to weaken the enemy defenses or even stop an enemy attack dead in its tracks. At the same time you will have to play close attention to the morale of your own troops and use recon units to spot any hostile ambushes or flanking attacks.

To achieve this, Battle Academy offers a clean and intuitive interface that makes it easy to control your troops and at the same time makes sure you will never lose sight of the battle. This means that you will be focused on what really matters; your mission objectives, battle tactics and unit positioning.

The game engine is also completely script-driven and therefore easy to mod, allowing players to create their own missions and scenario and even complete game overhauls in a simple and effective way.MultiplayerSlitherine’s revolutionary server-based PBEM++ system completes the package, for a gaming experience that will certainly please both hard core wargamers and newcomers. This asynchronous multiplayer system means you can easily find opponents anywhere in the world any time of day and play at your own pace. There are thousands of games on going at any time.

Battle Academy is also available on iPad and offers cross-platform multiplayer, this means that there will always be someone to challenge online! You can even start your turn at home on your PC and then continue it or play another turn on your iPad on the train.Base Game Features

Battle Academy reviews and comments

good so to start with, there's a difference between a strategy games and dice/poker games! as is the case here! Where's the strategy? When you have to do with totally random fights, to make a part or an Allied tank kills all the enemy tanks, redo the game, and see it all tanks fall in one shot of the enemy! To unveil an enemy, you have to move forward and suddenly, get in the firing range of last, and the hop, the units also fall like flies! There are many scout troops, but hey it works a shot on 2 not uncommon either to see, his troops in ambush, shoot an enemy, without touching him, the enemy makes him head shoot very very very often, because Yes, it is a game of dice throwing , but the dice are rigged favorably to the enemy! Fortunately the game is a little easy.... There's not that bad of course.... It is easy to take in hand! well done in the ennest, and it might please me if he did not make me Rager every 2 second because of his dice rigged! I recommend it if you see it in a bundles (or I got it) or trick of the genre, for 1 or €2, but no more! otherwise I recommend XCOM turn-by-turn;)

A very nice round-based Tactical Game. Far from as complex as a Steel Panthers, Battle Academy allows for an easy One-out. It does not use unnecessary options and the Interface is intuitive And tidy. The Graphics look convincing and coherent in Your comic style. All EInses are implemented in their Fighting Power according to the historical Models. The control Is carried out on individual Infantry Groups, Tanks, Transport Vehicles, Artillery, Etc. Special Support Such as Replenishment of Mansions or Ammunition and the Request of Air Support and Artiellery are also available depending on the Mission. The Campaigns are based on the most famous Military Operations of the Anglo-Saxon Allies and come up with varied Missions. Individual Battles can also be played and the Comunity has already made some good And free missions and even Campaigns available for Download. The I-Tüp ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ would be if you could build your own small Army in the Campaign. Here, however, the Troops are usually firmly specified or can be selected and supplemented from a Pool itself (each for the upcoming Mission). In some Campaigns, on the Other hand, the scenarios are interconnected, so that the surviving Troops are available again in later Missions (Operation Market Garden). So The "caring" commander is rewarded. For the tabletop player blessed with little Time or Friend of round-based Games just the right thing to the casual entertaining Tactics.
