Approachable, absorbing and visually impressive yet detailed, Battle Academy aims to revolutionise the strategy games market with a blend of intuitive design and compelling game play driven by cutting edge technical innovation.

Inspired by an original online game concept devised by the BBC, the game has more than 30 battles in a range of theatres of war from the North African desert through D-Day to the to the snowy Ardennes mountains where the Allies battled to repel the final German offensive.

The team at Slitherine worked with Professor John Buckley, Military Historian at the University of Wolverhampton and a keen wargamer himself, to make sure that the strategy, tactics, scenarios and available firepower of the battles fought in WW2 were turned into realistic AI behaviour, powering expertly crafted battles.

The revolutionary server-based PBEM++ Slitherine system completes the package, for a gaming experience that will certainly please both hard core wargamers and newcomers. This revolutionary system allows iPad, Mac and PC players to play against each other, and even allows you to play 1 turn on your PC at home, continue the same game on the iPad on the train to work and play a turn at work on your Mac, all without you having to do a thing - the server handles it all!


Control British, US, Polish, Canadian forces in 3 epic campaigns covering more than 30 varied battles or take control of Italian and German forces in multiplayer.

Select from a vast array of equipment including 100 units from 6 nations - Shermans, Fireflys, Panthers, Tigers, Stukas, Hurricanes, P47s and much more!

Gameplay features include ambushes, line of sight, artillery barrages, airstrikes, scouts, morale, APCs, flame throwers, heavy bombers, snipers and suppression.

Please update you game........

The game is great needs pass and play however and paying 20$ then paying for downloadable content is absurd.

expensive but fun

I've been playing strategy war games my entire life...

As a kid I started with the board games Risk and Stratego, moved to all the versions of Axis and Allies and Shogun, Fortress America graduating to Avalon Hill games.
I played and loved strategy games from Sea Battle on Intelevision to games on Nintendo, Sega to Allied & Panzer Commander on PS2 to PS3 to all sorts of games on the computer (Age of Empires, Command & Conquer, Civilization, etc). I love anything WWII, be it RTS, turn based or first person shooters like the Medal of Honor and Call of Duty games.

This game, "Battle Academy", is one of my all time favorites! The graphics are great, the maps are detailed, it's easy to learn, there are any different pieces and units to play and it lasts a long time. And now that users can make battles, it may never end. It's like paying a strategy hex game like an Avalon Hill game or Panzer Commander but the pieces are little troops that actually move and look life like when they shoot. When the tanks and vehicles are destroyed they burn on the battle field. The dead troops bodies remain on the field. Buildings get destroyed, woods burn; its just wonderful. When I discovered it, it was everything I was looking for in a game.

I'd love to see more wars recreated with this kid of game play/interface. How about creating an authentic WWII navy battle game or other sea battles from other centuries.

Thank you Slitherin for making such an awesome game!
