Battle Academy

Product Info

A turn-based strategy game like no other has landed.

Approachable, absorbing and visually impressive yet detailed, Battle Academy aims to revolutionise the strategy games market with a blend of intuitive design and compelling game play driven by cutting edge technical innovation.

The team at Slitherine worked with Professor John Buckley, Military Historian at the University of Wolverhampton and a keen wargamer himself, to make sure that the strategy, tactics, scenarios and available firepower of the battles fought in WW2 were turned intorealistic AI behaviour, powering expertly crafted battles.

The game engine is also completely script-driven, allowing players to create their own missions and scenario in a simple and effective way.

The revolutionary server-based PBEM++  Slitherine system completes the package, for a gaming experience that will certainly please both hard core wargamers and newcomers.

Review on TLeaves
I unreservedly recommend it to anyone who is as enamored of turn-based combat games as I am.

Review on PC Dome
"Battlefield Academy is a very addictive casual wargame."

Review on NetWargamingItalia
7.5/10 - Overall I think BA deserves a vote more than adequate score, despite the simplicity, or perhaps because of that, in addition to the implementation which is clean and well kept, for its innovative approach and the desire to bring new players to wargaming, although it's also fun for veterans.
