Tank Battle: North Africa is the latest new iPad wargame from Hunted Cow Studios – and it looks quite promising. Hunted Cow Studios are the makers of the excellent Civil War: 1863 game that I reviewed last September and was very impressed with.
This game is the sequel to Tank Battle: 1944, which I have also played and enjoyed on the iPad. The game puts you in charge of US and British forces battling the Germans in North Africa in World War II. Here’s a little more about via its App Store page:

I’m a big fan of these sort of tactical wargames, and this one sounds like a very nice improvement on Tank Battle: 1944. I’ve installed it this morning but haven’t had a chance to try it out yet – that will change very soon.
Here’s an App Store link for Tank Battle: North Africa; it’s currently priced at $1.99 – which is listed as a 33% off special introductory price.
