Praise for Battle of the Bulge:
“It’s completely nailed the right ways to present a tabletop game in a digital format...” — No High Scores
“Battle of the Bulge is a landmark iPad game. It’s deep without feeling complex, and fun without feeling light. Further, it’s beautiful, both visually and aurally, and so intuitive that you don’t need a tutorial to learn the interface. If you’re at all into turn-based gaming, give this one a try. If you’re not, give this one a try, anyway.” — MobileTechReview
“A game that will make historical strategy diehards swoon, while also being pretty enough, and easy enough to learn, to draw in people who never knew that this was the game they'd been waiting for.” — TouchArcade
“In terms of war simulation games on the App Store, I haven’t seen a better game…” — TUAW
“…a game of considerable majesty awaits you…” — Gamezebo
“Easily the most educational game I’ve ever played.” — Eurogamer
"Battle of the Bulge is as cold, brutal, and unforgiving as the titular conflict, but it's also one of the top choices for hardcore iPad strategists." - Pocket Gamer UK

The best of the best
Surely the best map-based WWII strategy game available for iPad, bar none. Especially if you have any interest in the subject matter. It has great playability and depth, and the interface design is intuitive and well thought out. Very few iPad games engage me like this - one can try one strategy then another and the results are always different. Great AI too - not completely stupid and predictable. A Highly recommended game. Don't hesitate - Buy it!
An absolute work of art...
I have been waiting literally for years for a developer to take up the mantle of creating proper wargames for iOS, and these guys have not disappointed. This is an amazing gmae and it's clear a lot of time and energy has gone into it's creation. If only all iOS games were made to this standard...
Outstanding game. Really excellent rendering of the complexities of this famous conflict. Close to a boxed wargame and playable and fun. Difficulty of maintaining supply while pushing forward fast for axis and having to hold in the early days with very little resource for the allies are modelled well.
Computer AI is a little weak occasionally but online mode works very very well.
