Description

Blitzkrieg - A WWII RTS.

Unprecedented realism and accuracy blend to form immersive 3D battlegrounds where brute force takes a backseat to strategy and wits.

Eisenhower, Rommel, Zhukov; Assume your rightful place among the great generals commanding the Allies, Germans or Soviets as they advance through the decisive battles of WWII.

Blitzkrieg is the latest development in WWII real-time strategy gaming combining flexibility, historic accuracy and endless playability into one of the most challenging and enjoyable games yet!

Blitzkrieg's unique and completely flexible campaign structure puts you in control of deciding how your forces will fare in each of the major engagements that comprise three central Campaigns. Experienced vets have the option of engaging the enemy immediately in a desperate struggle for battlefield dominance, or more cautious players can choose from pre-defined or unlimited randomly generated side missions as they gain experience, promotions and weapons upgrades as well as wear down the enemy before the central conflict.

Historical accuracy is pushed to the edge as each unit is endowed with the actual capabilities and characteristics that existed at the time. Details such as the thickness of a tank's armor down to the range of infantry rifles add a level of previously unprecedented realism. Each campaign has been meticulously researched to provide an accurate depiction of the battles that took place, while still maintaining the flexibility (and fun!) necessary to let you play the way you want.

Fun… but….

I've owned this and the other Blitz games for some time now on windows and love the games. When I saw this on the App Store, I was really excited and bought it immediately. It's just as fun, but just ate up with bugs. If I get a game without it (the game, not the computer) locking up, i'm doing well. I would easily rate this game higher because it's got play value, but having to reboot your computer two or three times a night got old really quick. If these guys will fix the bugs and put out the later games, I'd buy them and be happy. Till then, I'll reboot and cuss the software I guess.

fun game, needs work

i had this game back in the day and it was great. i have a mac book pro with lion on it. i've played the German campaign and it only froze once on me, but the other campaigns it freezes every mission it seems like. when it comes to the game play its good. execpt all the tanks, cars, and planes all have very bad glitches to them and they seem like im looking right through them. also when it comes to the trenches i cant see any of the men in them even my own.

if the freezing and the glitches to the cars, tanks, planes, and treches were fixed it would be atleast a 4 1/2 star game

Excellent game; needs update

When this game is working flawlessly, its one of the best WWII strategy games I've ever played. But it does crash my entire MacBook Pro fairly often. It freezes up and all I can do is turn off the computer completely and restart. That is quite annoying. Fortunately, the game is good enough that I can't help but keep coming back to try again! As soon as it gets an update to stop this freezing, then it'll be a five star AWESOME!
