Drive on Moscow iPad game

Drive on Moscow: War in the Snow, the outstanding iPad strategic wargame from Shenandoah Studio, has been updated to Version 2.0 today. This is a major update for the game, starting with the app becoming universal – so it can now be played on the iPad, and iPhone, or an iPod Touch.

Here are the other two notable additions to the game in this update:

New AI Opponents – Challenge two new AI opponents featuring machine learning and Alpha-Beta pruning. These AI opponents think deeply and will provide a new experience for veteran players.

Improved Online and Sharing Features – New options let players share their victories and invite others to join them online. For online play, we’ve added a one-week timeout to all games to keep them flowing and competitive.

This is another good update for an already great iPad wargame. It’s also still on sale at just $4.99 – and now that gets you a universal app designed for iPad and iPhone.
