The popular and highly rated Battle Academy iPad game is on sale this week at 50% off. It’s down from $19.99 to $9.99 until June 23.
This strategic wargame has received rave reviews from gaming sites and users alike. It’s a World War II game covering a range of different battles. Here’s a bit of its App Store intro:
Approachable, absorbing and visually impressive yet detailed, Battle Academy aims to revolutionise the strategy games market with a blend of intuitive design and compelling game play driven by cutting edge technical innovation.
Inspired by an original online game concept devised by the BBC, the game has more than 30 battles in a range of theatres of war from the North African desert through D-Day to the to the snowy Ardennes mountains where the Allies battled to repel the final German offensive.
The team at Slitherine worked with Professor John Buckley, Military Historian at the University of Wolverhampton and a keen wargamer himself, to make sure that the strategy, tactics, scenarios and available firepower of the battles fought in WW2 were turned into realistic AI behaviour, powering expertly crafted battles.
The game’s system allows for iPad, Mac, and Windows PC players to plat against each other. It even lets you play the same game across the iPad and desktop machines.
I have heard all good things about this game, and now at this sale price I’m finally going to give it a try.
