"WW2: Sandbox. Strategy & Tactics may be just the thing for you; especially if you are a fan of Hearts of Iron or Axis & Allies" -

Sandbox is the unlimited sequel to our Strategy & Tactics: World War II. We've abandoned historical restrictions and turn limits making your task deceptively simple - take command of any European army and lead it to victory in World War 2.

You can recreate the actual politics of the era - or not. For instance, as Great Britain you could side with the USSR to crush Germany - or you could disable the historical alliances and lead America to conquer Europe...

Random events like guerrilla movements, landing operations, and voluntary recalls will ensure endless replayability and the uniqueness of each game session. You’ll be making your own history!
WW2: Sandbox. Strategy & Tactics – war is coming!

Game Features:
- Accurate maps of Europe and Asia with over 950 regions
- 4 types of ship: Battleship, Cruiser, Submarine, Destroyer
- 39 playable countries
- Will you use infantry, aircraft, artillery, and armored vehicles? You choose how to bring the enemy to their knees!
- You decide how to spend the resources from the conquered territories: will you grow your army or boost R&D?

Keep track of HeroCraft game news and updates!

Ok needs more history

Ok I love the game and everything and can play it for hours straight but I have one little problem. I Wish that the game would have more of a diplomatic approach because if you want to make it like “Hearts of Iron” you should at least put justifying war goals and decisions. Don’t get me wrong its very similar to “Hearts of Iron” but hoi4 is not just about war and war its mostly politics, and construction, etc... But then again it’s a great game I love it and I wish it just had that feature.

Very fun, endless possibilities

This game is very in-depth and the visuals and GUI are very informative without being distracting or obtrusive. I could seriously play it for hours.

The goal of the sandbox is to complete the objective of your choosing. There's a lot of units at your disposal and all the space in the map that you need. Bait your opponent with seemingly vulnerable infantry and once they come forth, encircle them with jeeps, bombard them from the air or sea and send your tanks in to finish the job.

However, there are some issues. There's no online multiplayer, alliances cannot be configured during a battle, and playing the game on battery is a very bad idea due to how quickly it would drain. Music's pretty good although I would like more tracks from the WWII game included in this one. The last patch seemed to fix any instability or crashes.

Amazing Game

I love this game. I like how you have complete control of the action, the random event system, and how when you play as a specific country the other side doesn’t suddenly become unbeatable and your allies actually help you unlike the World Conquer or European War games. The only thing that would make this game better is if you could add a diplomacy system that way we can choose our allies and declare war on who we want when we want. Now I know your working on other projects at the moment but it’s a feature that other players and I would love to see.

-Best of wishes B. Lawhun
