Tank Battle: North Africa (by Hunted Cow Studios)

We're please to announce our exciting sequel to the hugely popular strategy game Tank Battle: 1944!

Take command as the British Commonwealth and U.S. forces fight the Germans in the North African theatre and lead your battalion to victory in challenging tactical battles.

Fight for control of North Africa during WWII. Utilize new mechanics, such as flanking, 'move and shoot', troop transports and veteran units. With 36 unit types Tank Battle: North Africa is an epic strategy game including detailed battles that will keep you coming back for more!

We submitted the game to Apple today so it should hopefully be available on the App Store within the next couple of weeks

Here are a few screenshots of the game taken on the new iPod:
(Note the game is a Universal App so will work on iPhone / iPod and iPad)

What are the changes or improvements compared to Tank Battle: 1944?

Civil War: 1863 added leaders and much nicer animation and sound effects. Will these be added to Tank Battle: North Africa as well?

Tank Battle North Africa adds on from Tank Battle 1944

Lots more units there are now 36.
Added the British.
Most units can move and shoot.
Hull mounted afv's may not move and shoot.
The shooting scale is must wider so a lot more unit differentiation between units.
Supply dumps added and a penalty if lost.
Infantry may mount and dismount trucks and half tracks.
Some units move and shoot better than others depends on real life capability.
That's the top level changes.

Here are some of the new units featured in the game:

German Sdk.Fz 222
An excellent, fast and lightly armed scouting vehicle in use from the beginning to the end of the war.

German Stug IIIf
The Stug IIIf was so well armored that it started to replace the Panzer IV battalions of many German armored divisions. Its inability to move and shoot is its only real weakness.

British Long Range Desert Group
The Long Range Desert Group was the scourge of the Axis forces. Rarely in front line action they would sneak around German lines and attack easy to kill rear area units and supply dumps.

British Morris Truck
Trucks will usually be available to transport your infantry units to battle, sometimes they are unarmed supply trucks. While mounted in trucks infantry cannot shoot and are very vulnerable to enemy fire.

American M3 Gun Motor Carriage
The most common U.S. Tank Destroyer in the North African theatre. A mount of an American version of the 'French 75' in an M3 half-track. Powerful but lightly armored.

British / American M3 Medium Tank
Possibly the most unusual looking Allied tank of World War II and the first Allied tank able to match German firepower.

I love the look and polish of your previous games but found that it wasn't that clear how terrain benefits are calculated and how the combat system works. As a wargamer this frustrated me as I couldn't figure out myself how the system was resolving combat. Was I missing something? In other words does this game let me in in the underlying game system? Many thanks for any information as I want to love these games but I feel locked out of the system.

So I am actually a Hexwar supporter, and not Hunted Cow's. Now wonder I saw all those browser RPG stuff on their webpage when I went to look for more Tank Battle and Civil War...
