Command infantry, mechanized and armoured units in hard fights through the various phases of the offensive, taking into account the nature of the terrain and its effects on the assailants and defenders.

You don't only have to face a direct military confrontation, you have to learn how to manage your supply routes, being careful not to rely on easy solutions! A quick breakthrough into enemy lines could lead your units being isolated with a high risk of being outflanked by enemy counterattacks!

Time will be another factor not to underestimate. In Battle of the Bulge, scenarios have a time limit with several "semi-historical" events affecting your conduct of operations in different ways.

Take control of iconic elite units on both sides, such as the 101 Airborne Division or the Kampf Gruppe Peiper, and replace the losses on the hottest spots of the frontline!

Challenge Bradley, Dietrich, von Rundstedt and other historical commanders with an ad hoc re-written AI -each with different play styles to choose!

Alternatively try to outsmart your friends - whatever their favourite gaming platform - in simple multiplayer encounters or test your skills with the new Tournament feature, providing infinite replay value to the game!

Battle of the Bulge reviews and comments

There is nothing wrong with a high Price, but the Scope Of the Game is unfortunately too small for this. More Maps, Music, different levels of Difficulty, Multiple scores, iCloud: I expect all Of this at such a Price. Some small layout problems should also be fixed. For the Money, on the other hand, you get a strong computer opponent, a sophisticated Game system with a tactical and strategic Depth and a well Thought-out operation. Everything important that needs to be known is explained in the Guide; Here it is only a pity that you can navigate badly in it, have no Side numbers and do not come back after jumping over a Cross-reference. The historical Backgrounds are nice as an Encore. As a Conclusion, you could say: A great Game that is so good that you would like more of it. It is precisely this More, unfortunately, that is lacking. Edit 1: The new In-app offers are too expensive for the game's high Base price. Edit 2: Some Time after I bought Drive to Moscow, a new Version of it was sold as a new App. If You want Fixes, you have to buy them again at a Full Price. So be warned About such fraudulent Tricks here too! (This drops my Rating from three to one Star.)

This we have here ladies and gentlemen is an authentic strategy game, is a wargame in every sense of the word, which requires attention to detail, focus on the objectives and a certain hobby for this type of games. All this without sacrificing gameplay and allowing in the worst case playing against another opponent of your level you can always have fun. His greatest merit in my humble opinion is to have developed a credible IA that allows you to play offline with frequent defeats... At least at first. It is certainly an application for all public, but there is a public for which this is Our first App, that well worth a Congratulations to all its creators. When I started to know the aplicacines of the Ipad I wondered if it would be possible to play some of the classic games of chips and hexagons in an environment like this so "flat" and friendly, the idea of moving away from the map and approach the combat stage with two fingers , manage one of those all-life boards with the simplicicdad of the Ipad and run the complex combat tables, terrain effects and bonus in an automated manner; It seemed to me something so feasible and desirable that it seemed impossible not to find any serious development on the subject. Not bad... In a universe populated with fake app strategy and cheap or free forms of occasional entertainment I could finally find on the Internet the Shenandoah team from its origins, has been a joy to see the project paid in part by subscriptions of Prepurchase and individual sponsors, is thus to some extent a work of the community and I just hope it is the first of many. In the Spirit line of Steve Jobs... It gives quality because people know it taste, and it is worth paying for the things that are worth buying. If I could talk to the developers I would ask them to Apostasen for the ugly format of hexagons of all life in future projects manager, I think there is market for the faithful, there is no need to compete with Angry Birds.
