Great news today for wargame fans and iPad wargames fans in particular. Shenandoah Studio, makers of the excellent Battle of the Bulge strategic wargame for the iPad, have announced their next iPad title is coming this Fall.
Drive on Moscow is that next title, and it’s the sequel to Battle of the Bulge. Here is Shenandoah’s brief introduction for Drive on Moscow:
Drive on Moscow invites players to take on the role of either the Soviet or German commander in this defining offensive of World War II. The Battle of Moscow was a large-scale conflict spanning the winter of 1941-1942 and was a key turning point on the Eastern Front. Designed by Ted Raicer, it features the aggressive German push to Moscow followed by the Soviet counterattack.
Building off of Battle of the Bulge (great UI design, historical photos and commentary, etc), Moscow expands into new directions featuring a changing map based on weather conditions, a larger array of unit types, improved Game Center features, and more.
And some of the notable features of the upcoming new iPad game:
Multiple scenarios ranging from the full conflict to smaller operations
The ability to play as both the Soviets and Germans
A changing map based on weather conditions
The ability to play games against AI, Face to Face, and online
New Units and defensive fortifications
The latest Game Center features
Game designed by Ted Raicer, designer of Paths of Glory
Historical commentary and photos throughout the app
As many of you know if you read here regularly, I am a massive fan of Shenandoah’s Battle of the Bulge game, and of their mission to bring a whole string of strategic wargame titles to the iPad and iOS.
I’ve already had many, many hours of enjoyment playing Battle of the Bulge against the AI, against my brother, against some of the Shenandoah testing team, and against plenty of random online opponents. Needless to say, I can’t wait to play Drive on Moscow – and the next two titles Shenandoah are planning: El Alamein and Gettysburg: The Tide Turns.
