You are in the command of the German WWII armed forces - tanks, infantry and air force units - and the object of the game is to conquer the Soviet Union as quickly as possible. To have a chance to seize the top spot in the Hall of Fame you need to skillfully encircle scores of Red Army infantry units with your panzers, while battling both the feared T-34 tank units and the notorious Russian weather.
+ Historical accuracy: Campaign mirrors the historical setup of Operation Barbarossa.
+ Long-lasting: Thanks to in-built variation and the game's smart AI technology, each game provides a unique war gaming experience.
+ Competitive: Measure your strategy game skills against others fighting for the Hall of Fame top spots.
+ Supports casual play: Easy to pick up, leave off, continue later.
+ Challenging: Crush your enemy quickly and earn the bragging rights on the forum.
+ Reinforcements and replacement units, plus new unit types if the war lasts several years.
+ Experienced units learn new skills, like improved attack or defence performance, extra move points, damage resistance, ability to cross rivers without losing extra MPs, etc.
+ Settings: Various settings to alter the look of the gaming experience: different icon sets for units (real - nato - web 2.0), difficulty levels.
+ A large range of units under your command: tanks, infantry, motorized infantry, weak Axis infantry, Waffen SS troops, the German air force and espionage units. Meanwhile, the Red Army starts with weaker infantry, cavalry and tank units, but as the weeks pass, is reinforced with stronger Siberian and T-34 tank units.
+ Weather modeling: Spring/autumn Mud slows movement, while winter reduces line-of-sight and freezing cold hampers units (especially mechanized ones).
+ Tablet friendly strategy game: Automatically scales the map for any physical screen size, while settings allow you to fine tune hexagon and font sizes.
In order to be a victorious general in this strategy game, you must learn to coordinate your attacks in two ways. First, as adjacent units give support to an attacking unit, keep your units in groups in order to gain local superiority. Secondly, it is rarely the best idea to use brute force when it is possible to encircle the enemy and cut off its supply lines instead.

One of the compliments that this wargame has received is that many players have compared it favourably to the classic board games by Avalon Hill and GMT.

UNDO: I would love to have an undo-feature, but here's the biggest problem: A lot of data is crunched after each move - with some random variation. Therefore, a movement of a unit cannot be simply de-calculated. The only way to implement undo is to store a LOT of data into the memory. However, the game is already crashing because it's running out of memory on older versions of Android, thanks to the fact that the OS only gives an app a certain small amount of memory regardless of how much memory the phone physically has. In addition, there are some other issues with undo, such as cheating to reach the top of the Hall of Fame.
The list below includes the permissions requested and the reasons for their use.
+ Internet: To fetch Hall of Fame data from a server.
+ Network State: To determine whether or not you online so the game doesn't crash while trying to connect.
+ Control Vibrator: To vibrate the phone during the battles.
