If you appreciate a good turn based wargame loaded with polish and crafted with a love for board gaming and wargames, this is a great buy for $9.99.  It's the best strategy game I've seen on the iPad...by a mile.  It's better than most pc wargames.

I'll write more thoughts once I've experienced more of the campaign.  There are so many iOS titles released every week that it's easy to miss the gems.

This really makes me wish I had an iPad or at least more developers put their games out for Android. If the ipad mini wasn't such an obvious cash grab I might actually pick one up.

The campaign has been good, both Allies and Axis.  Axis seems a little harder, but I'm still learning the naunces of the game.  It has just enough depth to be challenging, but not overwhelming like some wargames.  So far so good.  It makes me want to go back and watch the Battle of the Bulge episodes from Band of Brothers.

I know I do. The ipad mini is the best table I have owned and I've tried most of them. I forgot about the resolution 'problem' about 2 seconds after I turned it on. I don't think my ipad 3 has been touched in over a month.

Battle of the Bulge looks gorgeous on the mini.

That's a pretty expensive table.. I prefer the tray tables myself...

I finally won in SP as the Axis, with my supply line and path of attack looking oddly similar to slightly crooked, but erect male junk.  I can't even type this without it sounding like this, but my rear flank was protected by units arranged in semicircles on either side of the main line of advance and supply.  So there you go, thankfully the germans didn't use the crooked boner attack during the real Battle of the Bulge.
