Quick question, what is flanking attack? I played through the first tutorial scenario and an achievement popped up saying something like "first flanking attack". Does it do more damage? How did I do it?

I skimmed through the ingame manual and it doesn't seem to mention flanking attacks...

Also any chance of more two player scenarios? I looked at the IAP campaign descriptions and they don't mention anything about adding more two player scenarios.

On each turn, when you first attack a unit it will turn to face the unit that attacked it. If you then attack the same unit from behind it will count as a flank attack which gives you a damage bonus to it.

Note that you'll see a floating symbol appear when you successfully perform a flank attack

We'll also be looking at adding more two player missions in a future update.

Hope you are enjoying the game so far!

I experimented with the, Panzer Races, two player scenario after reading your description and it seems like the way flanking attacks work is if the attacker shoots from the north, any attacks from the south, southeast and southwest are considered flanking attacks, i.e. the symbol appears.

So far Tank Battle: North Africa seems to be more of the same as Tank Battle: 1944, which is more of a good thing.

Installed size: 57.2MB so it will be on my iPad for a very long time, together with Tank Battle: 1944 and Civil War: 1863.

Sold already!

Any chance of adding async play (i.e. my FAQ), or German solo? (in case I miss it)

Having the option of enabling realistic unit sizes and names would improve the experience for wargamers I think.

We may look at adding local multiplayer in the future

There are currently two German campaigns available as IAPs (Lightning War! and Resurrection).

Hope this helps
