  • German Ardennes Offensive 1944 is a turn based strategy game set on the Western Front during the Second World War, essentially offering the German side of the Battle of Bulge.

    The historical battle took place in December 1944 in Ardennes, Belgium, where American forces fought against a large German offensive. It was the largest land battle of World War II in which the United States directly participated.

    In the game, you are in control of the German armed forces and your main task is to reach Brussels, which would open to you a route to the strategic port city of Antwerp. This would essentially split the Allies in two, hopefully causing enough political tensions to force the Allies to sign a peace treaty.

    The game is over if:
    + Germans reach over 180 Victory Points, or
    + Germans control less than 10 Victory Points.

    + 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 skills against others fighting for the Hall of Fame top spots.
    + Challenging: Crush the enemy quickly and earn the bragging rights on the forum.
    + Good AI: Instead of just attacking on direct line towards the target, the AI opponent balances between strategic goals and smaller tasks like encircling nearby units.
    + Settings: Various options are available to alter the look of the gaming experience: Change difficulty level, hexagon size, Animation speed, choose icon set for units (NATO or REAL) and cities (Round, Shield, Square, block of houses), decide what is drawn on the map, and much more.
    + Two Icon Sets: Real or NATO-styled units.
    + Supports casual play: Easy to pick up, leave off, continue later.
    + Tablet friendly strategy game: Automatically scales the map for any physical screen size/resolution from small smartphones to HD tablets, while settings allow you to fine tune hexagon and font sizes.
    + Historical accuracy: Campaign mirrors the historical setup, and uses the names and locations of the divisions that saw combat during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II.
