The superb Battle of the Bulge strategic wargame for the iPad is on sale this weekend at 30% off. It’s down from its standard price of $9.99 to just $6.99.
This game has been getting well-deserved rave reviews since it first hit the App Store last December, and it’s been a huge favorite of mine since I was lucky enough to be on its pre-release beta testing team. It’s the first real, proper strategic wargame I’ve seen that’s truly made for the iPad.
I’ll do a review of it soon, but I can tell you right now the short story is that it’s a great game and tons of fun to play. Here are some of its key features:
