Guadalcanal
Coral Sea / End of Rabaul (IAP)
and then the rest...

Don't feel bad about losing at start, the US/Allied "cavalry" comes in the end (sort of).

Good luck and enjoy

P:TEE and Terra Mysteria made me slipped it. But version 1.8 is out!

Quote:
Events:
- they are saved and available after app closure
- battle starts are logged
- fuel points supplied to airfields are logged
- surface battle evasion is logged

CAP:
- the repetitive nature of CAP missions is shown on air units
- CAP is not recursive on airfield with limited fuel supply and stays aloft longer
- fighters were sometimes not effective enough hwne fighting on the +1 or +2 columns of the air combat table

Miscellaneous:
- Difficulty rating for scenarios
- 30% chance Intelligence decrease for a force which has not been detected for 2 consecutive TURNS
I am told there will be one more version or so before 2P games being released.

Does anyone know of any gameplay videos for this game? I cannot seem to find any. Even up-to-date images are rare.
