Re: Allied campaign Cauldron Mission not ending.

It does not end early to give you a chance to complete the minor objective: saving 3 of the original group of encircled units to the northwest.

Re: Battle Academy iPad, PC & Mac 50% off!

I just bought BA (for the PC) for US$14.99 but it only displayed that price during checkout. It was still listed as US$29.99 everywhere else. Not a problem, per se, but it took some faith to continue with the checkout procedure.

Re: Deselecting Aircraft

I usually just press "N" for Next unit. That in conjunction for "Z" (one-turn sleep) is really handy for cycling through all of my deployed units each turn.

Re: Allies, who you going to play first?

Are there any plans for the Pacific theatre? It could be an interesting mix including some new nationalities (specifically Japanese), with more emphasis on naval involvement and, possibly new terrain types (jungle? shoal? hidden bunker?)

Re: air zone of control

I wonder how "Zone of Control" working more like "Opportunity Attacks" in tactical role-playing games (like D&D) would affect gameplay? For example, an enemy unit can enter an adjacent hex but, if it attempts to leave that hex in the same turn, it is subject to an "opportunity attack" (a free attack...

Re: Allied: Torch

I made the same, apparently common, mistake in that I realized, 2-3 turns after I eliminated all opposition, that I had to place a garrison ALL of the towns for a Triumph. :roll: One aspect I was initially confused about was the "neutrality" of the French Vichy units. They occupied victory hexes so ...

Re: Allied: Crete

This might be a general issue and not specific to this scenario but I noticed that if I had a ground unit positioned in the same hex (underneath) as an enemy paratrooper (aboard an aircraft) the enemy aircraft would never move nor would the paratrooper jump. They would just wait there, patiently, un...

Detailed manual/wiki anywhere?

I have some basic questions about rules mechanics like: What is the difference between Standing and Crouching? Specifically: is there a movement penalty while Crouching? Is there a movement cost to change stances (between Standing and Crouching)? Does Crouching give you a defensive bonus (vs ranged ...

Re: First impressions: awkward camera

I concur with the awkward camera comments. I expected to be able to right-click + drag to rotate the camera (in 3D) at a specific radius around a selected target. The mouse wheel could be used to increase/decrease the radius. If there were no selected targets right-click + drag would just pan the ca...

Re: Took the plunge

Thank you for your first-impressions commentary, it is very insightful as to what type of game this is. I am currently at a 75% "Buy" chance but could use a little more details before "pushing the button." I see there is a (21 mission?) campaign but is there a random mission/map generator, custom sc...

Early reviews?

I am confused by this game, is it NEW or a "re-mastered" version of an existing game?

Are there any preview/reviews that I can analyze to help me make a "buy" decision? The game description and screenshots look great but I have been fooled before. . .

Re: GC Gold Pack - an idea

I have not purchased any of the GC DLC but, if it was purchased/packaged -- and downloaded/installed -- as a single product, I would be very interested. The price will be important too so it should be a significant discount off of buying all of the DLC individually.

A phone number is required for purchase?!

I completed an online credit card purchase but had to enter a valid but bogus (area code + 555-1212; the phone number of "information") phone number. An hour later, Plimus sends me an email informing me that my purchase was rejected because they could not validate my phone number. I told them that I...

DeathMutant: First Impressions

Installing and launching the game was effortless, polished and had pleasing enough graphics and music to really get me into the mood (to conquer). Not big budget stuff, like something Blizzard would do, but very good for an indie developer and even better than I expected from seeing earlier screen s...
