A simple no frills off-shoot very tactical version of Panzer General. AI is not too bad.. clean interface, very easy to pick up and learn, and fun. Not a huge variety of units but enough to make you think about your tactics. Not a bad game for a cheap price.

Tank Battle: 1944 ... Is not a bad little game. You can get your feet wet here just to get the feel of board game and strategy.
My only complaint is in the single player mode The PC moves the apposing units (way !!!) to fast !! . Bam !! and there they are ... magic ! There is no way to slow them down to make them act and feel like the movements of real tanks.
I do like the game ... its down and dirty ... Love it

Nice little game. Personally glad more mobile games are being ported. It's limitations are acceptable to me, given the fact it was written for a phone, tablet, or other "lost-down-the-back-of-the-sofa" device.

UNPLAYABLE! This game was obviously never properly tested for Windows 7, because after downloading it from Steam, the game will not launch! Tech Support from Scotland where this game originates from is as useless as ♥♥♥♥ on a Haggas. The only feedback received from another sucker who purchased this app only mess was 'are you using two monitors?' Not worth 10 cents in it's current condition. Let alone 10 Dollars!

What it is: Addictive fun, fast, easy to learn WW2 "hex and counter" turn based wargame.

So I was hesitant to purchase this game as had its origins as an iOs game . I chatted a bit with one of the devs online and wfound out this was not a straight port but a rework. For 10 bucks, I figured what the heck. I am very happy I gave it a shot.

What it has: A very well done UI, quite easy to understand and friendly. Nice graphics. When I started in the tutorial I was reminded of the classic Panzer/Allied General games. The tutorials are very well done and teach you everything you need to know to play well.

A ton of content comes with the game. Over 9 separate campaigns, each with multiple missions. 3 levels of AI make the challenge customizable for all player levels. If you are a wargames expert and want a human opponent, there is a 2 player hotseat mode with 10+ scenarios as well.

The game play is fast, clean and easy to understand. Your units can move and attack (think soldiers and tanks firing on the move) wuth a reduction in their combat effectivness. Cover and terrain are very important for protection and line of sight as the map is shrouded (fog of war).

Overall impressions: I really like this game! I started it up and when I looked up, 2 hours had gone by and I was still having a great time. One of the first games in a long time that I was disappointed when life interferred and I had to stop playing.

Do yourself a favor, get this gem of a game. I know the devs are working on a American Civil War game as well and I am really looking forward to that one as well.

Not amazing but not bad for the price and suprisingly addictive and very easy to pick up. But yes it's an Ipad port so not overly complex.

A fun little 10$ turn based stratagy with some interesting mechanics, such as moving and shooting, flanking, and terrain effects. Reminds me of my first gaming days surfing the web and finding things like flash games such as Warfair 1917 and 1944. Good tutorial and lots of campaigns. A very solid game with a good price tag for what you're getting. Almost a rarity these days with 60$ titles releasing with huge amounts of bugs.
