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

Customer Reviews

I love it, for me: perfect!

I just got this three days ago and no major issues or glitches running on a newer model iPad mini. It's very easy to learn yet deep to play, which is ideal for me. It's not overly complex, perfect for a more casual wargamer but might be too simple for the hardcore wargamer who's used to 20-page rule books. I play solo against AI and find it very enjoyable, addictive more like it. No experience with multi-player to comment on. I am hooked and am going to pick up the Moscow version next.


What a mess! Online multiplayer is awful, no turn alerts on the app instead you get an email, great, as if I need more spam to sort through. Consequently it takes hours or days for a turn to take place, not a day, a turn. The older version was much better. The instructions are not very helpful and customer support does NOT get back to you. RIPOFF!

You ruined this game

This update ruined the game. The sound doesn't work, map zoom is weird, and the entire motion and action of everything is choppy and staccato like. Used to be perfect and beautiful in all regards, worth the money. Now it's a piece of garbage. Just revert a few versions back and I won't hate you anymore.
