Pacific Battles is an easy to learn but difficult to master turn based strategy game playing in the Pacific in World War II for 1-2 player. You control your fleet either on the US or the japanese side playing on a 8x8 board similar to chess but with more complexity!
Every player can move and attack using three units during one turn. Every unit has its own move range and attack range. After moving a ship within its range you can attack the enemy if it's nearby. As soon as you've made your moves, the enemy takes over and performs a counter attack.
Every attack is computed that way: Beside the attack points there are some more things which are calculated in. There are critical hits (1% probability) as well as misses. Plus there are combinations where the attacking ship makes only a damage of 50%. The following list shows the main targets where
a damage of 100% will be made (attacker -> targets):
CV (Carrier vessel) -> DD, CA, CL
BB (Battleship) -> CV, BB, CA, CL
CA (Cruiser) -> CL, BB, CV, DD
CL (Light Cruiser) -> DD, PT
DD (Destroyer) -> SS, PT
SS (Submarine) -> CV, BB, CA, CL
PT (Patrol Boat) -> SS, CV

It’s almost impossible to learn and apply, the rules and other traits of a chess based game, if someone have never played or understood the rules and unit moves and things. But, it’s Ok, because you get to hear about, untold areas of the pacific. I am not sure, if all or any of the scenarios did exist, but I’m sure they did.
Game dies after playing 10 games. I make my moves and App goes back to beginning. Does Lite game have a 10 game limit ? Or is this another issue. Otherwise nice game.
Just plain doesn’t work
