App description: Play a quick 10-15 minutes battle on your iPad or iPhone in a classic boardgame style!

Lines of Fire 2 is the sequel to original Lines of Fire: The Boardgame offering improved rules, streamlined gameplay and new content.

The game reflects tactical WW2 combat in Western, Eastern and African Fronts. The typical scenario-based approach has been replaced by a RTS-style gameplay: players begin the battle on an empty map and race to take control over the strategic locations. Their main concern is to outsmart the opponent in finding an effective balance between spending resources on maneuvering the forces in play or bringing new units into battle.

Lines of Fire 2 is build on simple, accessible ruleset, which provides a thematic feel to the firefights. An innovative Fog of War option utilizes tablets features to enrich the board game experience.

Full game offers wide variety of units, missions, special actions and challenges, which modify the basic rules and ensure that each battle turns into a new and fresh experience.

Available now...I cranked it up to quickly see what was different from the original. The first observation is that, thank goodness, I am no longer playing against THING from the ADDAMS FAMILY as they did away with that creepy disembodied hand. Gameplay is now sped up without the hand. There is a Campaign Game and it looks like you can play quite a number of missions before the locked missions appear. After that, you can buy individual mission packs or buy the entire campaign for $3.99. My only concern is the diversity of the missions. Hopefully it will not become repetitive where you become bored. You are also limited to the units you can use as others will become available after completing a number of missions. So your first set of missions will allow you to only use a HQ and Infantry. A jeep, for example, becomes available after mission 11. Otherwise, gameplay is similar to LOF 1. No real concerns about the game since it is free for now, so I'll give it a go for awhile to see how it fares......

I really enjoyed the free content - why so little talk?
