Turn the tide of war

Hit simul-turn based PC strategy series Combat Mission: Touch arrives on iPad

Cult PC strategy series Combat Mission has arrived on iPad (2nd and 3rd generation only) in the form of Combat Mission: Touch.

Taking the side of either the Allies or the Axis, Combat Mission: Touch puts the fate of Europe and the wider world in your hands over a series of simultanious turn-based battling.

For those not familiar with either the series or what that last sentence actually means, Combat Mission uses a system called ‘WeGo’ that sees turns processed at the same time once each armchair general has decided on their actions.

This allows for dummys and feints on top of the usual battle for position and terrain advantage that comes with turn-based strategy titles, and also means you can properly stop to admire the horrific consequences of your decision to send light infantry head on into a tank column.

Touch and go

This iPad edition contains 7 maps and missions, fully 3D graphics, and head-to-head multiplayer over Game Center. Developer Battlefront.com has promised more missions and content to be available soon via in-app purchase.

Combat Mission: Touch is out now on the App Store for 2nd and 3rd generation iPads for £2.99 / $4.99.
