New update from Shenandoah Studio and available on iTunes. Battle of the Bulge version 1.2 introduces two twists to the Battle of the Bulge scenario. “Luck of the Draw” keeps players on their toes by randomizing each sides’ starting positions and reinforcements. “Bitter End” always lasts until the 28th, which allows for more dramatic comebacks as well as more drastic routs. Each of these scenarios are free with the update.
There’s also a brand new scenario, “End Game,” which throws you right into the action on the 21st, using history as your starting point. By then, the battlefield was fractured. Sure, the Axis have Bastogne surrounded, but the Allied reinforcements are right around the corner. It is available as an in-app purchase for $3.99.
There are also two new AI opponents, one for each side. Hasso Von Manteuffel is the new Axis AI. He has a different idea of how to marshall the Axis forces. If you’re able to adapt, you might be able to foil his plan. The Allies get Omar Bradley. He is careful, methodical and relentless. If you don’t pay attention, he’ll cut off your supply lines and neutralize your forces without a fight. Each personality is available as an in-app purchase for $1.99. This game will run on all versions of the Apple iPad, and the iPad Mini. Price: $9.99.
