HeroCraft is at is again with yet another game to add to their incredible repertoire in the Play Store. This one is called Strategy & Tactics: World War II, and it’s a lot like RISK or other similar strategy games. You won’t find explosions or special effects, it’s simply pure strategy. The game takes place during World War II, and in the first part of the game you will command the Axis to conquer Europe. Later, you will command the armies of the USSR and Allies to retake it. The game offers three play modes: play against the computer AI, 2-player (hotseat), and 2-player over WiFi.
Gameplay is pretty simple, but accomplishing the task isn’t necessarily the case. Early on in the game, you will start with just soldiers, but eventually you will be able to utilize vehicles and planes. You job is to take over certain regions depending on the mission, of which there are 18 in all. You simply move your armies into nearby regions with the hopes of surrounding the enemy and taking it over. There are two ways to figure out if you will win an attack. For example, you are given a certain amount of soldiers. If you have 10 soldiers in region A and your opponent has 5 soldiers in region B, there’s a good chance you will win. The other factor is the meter below your soldiers icon, which tells you how weak they are. You can split up your soldiers as in divide and conquer or keep them together. You can also attack from multiple locations at the same time to increase your chances. If you find that you don’t have enough forces, and you will, you can ”buy” more soldiers, vehicles, and planes depending on how much currency you have earned while playing the game. Just like any other game like this, you can cut to the chase, and use your own hard earned cash as well.
