Customer Reviews


Ok so I come on here thinking this is a pretty cool strategy game for mobile. So I go ahead and downloaded. It was actually an ok game, until you realized that you can only move once, then you jut sit there forever... I know there might be a tutorial on this or something but idk. I hit the hour glass button and it gave me a check mark but nothing happened... Ok no big deal I'll just go find some tutorials later... That same night I caught it trying to access things in my iPad such as my location. Which I did not give it permission to do. Nor did it even ask me permission.. I went ahead and deleted it and shut my iPad down. The next day, my iPad was bugged... Thank you open panzers. I'm sure the App Store will be thrilled with this


Very good strategy game, unique units and maps. The menu navigation is sort of strange but its acceptable.

Best WW2 so far

Best I've found. Correct relationships between weapons, good detailed graphics, good scenarios and campaigns, great variety of weapons and forces, complex enough to require concentration but not ponderous. My all time favourite. A few glitches in scenarios and transitions which should be fixed soon.
