« on: May 22, 2014, 03:55:49 AM »
Tank Battle: East Front 1944 is out now and available from the AppStore


Tank Battle: East Front 1944 is the penultimate title in the successful ‘Tank Battle: East Front’ series of games for iPhone and iPad, a game of tactical combat on the Russian Front during 1944. Fight as the Germans or the Soviets in a series of ever more complex missions.1944 was to be a terrible year for the German armed forces.

A year of continuous retreat as the Soviet war machine moved relentlessly west. The summer would see the destruction of Germanys Army Group Centre, a worse disaster than Stalingrad. 1944 was also a year of super tanks with the appearance of the Iosif Stalin 2 tank with its massive 122mm gun and the German King Tiger.Missions vary from straightforward wipe out the enemy missions, to capture key objectives, to protecting vital supply convoys and repairing broken heavy tanks.

There is a whole range of missions to reflect the tactical complexity on warfare on the Eastern Front.

The game system is based on, and a major upgrade of, the successful game engine developed for ‘Tank Battle: North Africa’. Tank Battle: East Front 1941, Tank Battle: East Front 1942 Tank Battle: East Front 1943 are already available from the App Store.

I can no longer keep track of all the east front panzer corps style games available on the ios. You would think this is a good thing, but I'm not so sure it is.

This is another Hunted Cow Studios Ltd. game; it's the same as their Tank Battle: 1944 and Tank Battle: North Africa games. Also, their Tank Battle: 1941, TB: 1942, and TB: 1943 games.

Which is similar to their Civil War: 1863 game.

It's not a bad little light game for your iPad for two bucks, but it's pretty basic.

To Jarhead's comment, that's very true, and this particular dev cranks out tons of games that are very similar to each other. Not saying that's bad - I actually own both Tank Battle: 1944 and Civil War: 1863. They were good for a few hours' diversion, each. But don't look for deep gameplay.
