Fun but problems

Problem 1: Sometimes a small translucent rectangle appears on the screen and disrupts ones ability to use various menu options.

Balance Issue 1: Germany is overpowered navally to the point that they can eliminate the Royal Navy within a turn or two and prevent any RN from being rebuilt.
Balance Issue 2: The Blitzkrieg mechanic makes tanks too powerful given the scale of the map sectors.
Balance Issue 3: Submarines cannot be attacked by aircraft which completely contradicts the historical reality of the Battle of the Atlantic.

Suggestion: To give some national variations I think giving each nation one or two units that cost less for them would be interesting and a small production increase of 4-5 IPC per turn for the United States would seem appropriate.

Overall the game is a lot of fun to play, but beware the Computer AI for the Soviet Union is horrible and always collapses without direct Allied support.

Hi there! Thanks for the feedback! Can I ask you to screenshot the rectangle thing and report it at support.beamdog.com for a further investigation?

Regarding the balance issue, please try the Larry Harris 3.0 Gencon setup (not the original out-of-the-box setup) - it was developed to make the game balanced.

As for the submarines, this (along with many other game rules) comes from the board game. https://media.wizards.com/2015/rules/AA_1942_rules.pdf

Very well done

The UI enhancements made on both the iPad version and the latest Mac/PC version have made the game much easier to play. It is now much easier to move units by transports in all the ways allowed by the rules. The game plays very fast with smooth animations on my 2018 iPad Pro. The AI is “good enough” but not great. It does some boneheaded moves fairly often, but also sometimes surprises you with something unexpected.

However the game is really meant to be played against other humans and in this respect it really shines with the ability to leave messages for your allies in the game, review previous player turns, and rock-solid cloud syncing. This is is one of the best board game ports that I’ve seen.

I like the fact that they offer the Larry Harris Gencon starting option, in fact this was essential as the basic 1942 start favors the Axis far too much. What I would like to see in the future are additional starting layouts, maybe even different start years, to add some variety to the game. This would help keep the game fresh for veteran players.

Nice! Thank you so much!

I have been waiting for a faithful A&A port to mobile in forever, and having the ability to see Lesley flip back and forth with my connected steam account? Amazing. While it took a few steps to connect it to steam, once done it was a simple task to hop right into the games. Controls are simple to learn, zoom in and out is basic finger swipes, I’m a happy camper. Here is to hoping some of the OTHER A&A versions (1914? A&A and Zombies?) get the same treatment. Looking forward to losing many many hours for this well priced game. Since the board game is $100, I’m happy to drop $10. Thanks again!
