Product: Battle of the Bulge
Developer: Shenandoah Studio
Publisher: Shenandoah Studio
Genre: Simulation, Strategy
Edutainment has to be one of the most nauseatingly naff portmanteaus ever, but it could certainly be applied to Battle of the Bulge.
Here's an ace iPad game that captures the spirit, complexity, and tactical depth of high-end strategy boardgames while remaining relatively accessible and genuinely informative.
It's like the coolest - yet most in-depth - history lesson you've ever had.
Lean mean fighting machine
This is a lean, finely honed strategy experience with not a hint of fat to be found on it. Developer Shenandoah must have put it on strict rations and had it doing press-ups at the crack of dawn.
Battle of the Bulge is as cold, brutal, and unforgiving as the titular conflict, but it's also one of the top choices for hardcore iPad strategists
