With little fanfare and no apparent attention from Apple, Battle of the Bulge launched last night and I think that many folks here will really love the multiplayer.
There are only two scenarios, and by definition only two factions, but there is a great deal of variety of strategy and numerous victory conditions in the full scenario. The short intro scenario, Race to the Muse is great for multiplayer as it can be completed in under an hour if both players are active.
It is definitely not a replacement for HA, but it is a great change of pace to enjoy a true wargame that has the same online ease of play we wll love from HA.
One word or warning, It is very difficult for the Germans to win Race to the Muse, so there is a built in handicap for experienced players in selecting them. The full scenario is pretty balanced and with so many different ways to win it provides good options for play.
The studio is already working on volume II, El Alamein and I pray the game is successful enough to continue to see more battles added using the brilliant engine that was so perfectly implemented for touch based devices.
I am bigtroy68 on game center and I will happily accept any and all invites to play regardless of faction or scenario.
Hope to see some of you over in the Ardennes soon
