"WW2: Sandbox. Strategy & Tactics may be just the thing for you; especially if you are a fan of Hearts of Iron or Axis & Allies" -

Sandbox is the unlimited sequel to our Strategy & Tactics: World War II. We've abandoned historical restrictions and turn limits making your task deceptively simple - take command of any European army and lead it to victory in World War 2.

You can recreate the actual politics of the era - or not. For instance, as Great Britain you could side with the USSR to crush Germany - or you could disable the historical alliances and lead America to conquer Europe...

Random events like guerrilla movements, landing operations, and voluntary recalls will ensure endless replayability and the uniqueness of each game session. You’ll be making your own history!
WW2: Sandbox. Strategy & Tactics – war is coming!

Game Features:
- Accurate maps of Europe and Asia with over 950 regions
- 4 types of ship: Battleship, Cruiser, Submarine, Destroyer
- 39 playable countries
- Will you use infantry, aircraft, artillery, and armored vehicles? You choose how to bring the enemy to their knees!
- You decide how to spend the resources from the conquered territories: will you grow your army or boost R&D?

Very fun, endless possibilities


This game is very in-depth and the visuals and GUI are very informative without being distracting or obtrusive. I could seriously play it for hours.

The goal of the sandbox is to complete the objective of your choosing. There's a lot of units at your disposal and all the space in the map that you need. Bait your opponent with seemingly vulnerable infantry and once they come forth, encircle them with jeeps, bombard them from the air or sea and send your tanks in to finish the job.

However, there are some issues. There's no online multiplayer, alliances cannot be configured during a battle, and playing the game on battery is a very bad idea due to how quickly it would drain. Music's pretty good although I would like more tracks from the WWII game included in this one. The last patch seemed to fix any instability or crashes.



I honestly LOVE this game, but after a year of playing it crashed on my iPhone4s and wouldn't re-open. Ok no big deal...recently I got the 6s and thought maybe I'd give it a go again since its such a good game. I got into the app, which got my hopes up but I was quickly let down after it stopped loading my game at 40% and crashed and has done it every time since. PLEASE I'm begging, fix this because this has to be one of my all time favorite apps.

Update: FINALLY FIXED... back to its former glory. Highly recommend this now

Best Strategy game on the App Store


I absolutely love this game. My only problem with it is that I wish it had some sort of politics menu, where you can form alliances, influence countries, and sign peace treaties. I would also love it if they had a pre-war start date to really allow you to mess around and change history. Like fascist France fights democratic Russia. But all-in-all, it's a great game that I would recommend for people who love a challenge.
