Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein Coming This Spring
      #46031 - 02/12/14 10:17 AM

Shenandoah Studio announced today Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein, the next game from the developers of Battle of the Bulge, is coming this spring. The focus is still the crucial battles in Egypt during WWII in North Africa, just a new moniker. Here's more info on this upcoming iOS game:



Players command the Axis or Commonwealth in this crucial World War II battle in North Africa. Join Rommel and Montgomery in their back and forth struggle in the Egyptian desert. This conflict is often marked as a turning point in the war, as Winston Churchill once said, "Before Alamein we never had a victory. After Alamein we never had a defeat." Can you outwit the Desert Fox as the Commonwealth or will you change history as the Axis?



Details on Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein:

Campaign Mode: The new campaign mode gives players control in the lead up to the final battle. They make the choice to engage or hold for reinforcements making each campaign will be a whole new experience. The game also features scenarios based on key moments in the grand conflict.
Mines and New Terrain Features: Minefields litter the battlefield and can be placed strategically by players affecting combat and turning the tide of battle. New terrain features such as ridges and deirs come into play, providing cover and directing the offensives.
New Units to Command: Flak Guns and mixed Axis troops (German and Italian) provide new strategic choices.
Designed by Mark Herman: Designer of Washington's War and We the People, Mark Herman brings years of wargame expertise to Desert Fox.
More Coming Soon...



Desert Fox includes the great features you have come to expect from Shenandoah Studio, including asynchronous online play, a detailed map, accessible gameplay for new players, and more.

Release is currently planned for Spring 2014.

Very cool! Just recently saw that there are all these great strategy wargames for the iPads! Used to love playing the board games versions back in the 80's!

Yeah, these guys (the developers) are diehard board game fans and they've done some great work on putting the games into digital packages.
