If you’ve been visiting here for any length of time you know that I’m a huge fan of the Battle of the Bulge game from Shenandoah Studio. It’s one of my favorite iPad games ever and is a proper, old school strategic wargame for the iPad.
Oops, after today’s big new 2.0 update for the app it is a proper, old school strategic wargame for the iPad and iPhone.
This update also brings some more goodies to the app. There’s a new Player’s Guide to help improve your tactics and also a Designer’s Guide. The Player’s Guide is free, though you still have to get it via the In-App ‘Shop’ page. Once you get it, it is added to the game’s Help area.
Here’s the full change list for the Battle of the Bulge 2.0 update:
– Now Universal. Can be played on iPhone (3GS and up), iPad and iPod Touch (4th and 5th Generation).
– Localized in Spanish and Japanese.
– Up your strategy with the included Player’s Guide with articles from top players.
– Delve into design with the Designer’s Guide (In-App Purchase).
To celebrate the launch of Battle of the Bulge 2.0 the game is on sale at 40% off – just $5.99 – for one week (October17-24).
I can’t wait to dive into the Player’s Guide this evening. Much as I love this game, my command skills leave a lot to be desired.
