Atlantic Fleet (Telephone Game)

Post  MJDixon on Thu May 21, 2015 11:58 pm

Not sure if you chaps have any of those smart telephones that do things other than make telephone calls, but on the off chance I thought I'd let you know that a new game called Atlantic Fleet has been released for Android and Apple phones.

Unlike most mobile games, which seem to consist of brightly coloured rip offs of Tetris and the like, this one is actually quite good!



It's a turn based naval strategy game where you have a move phase, then a fire phase, then the enemy do their move and fire phase, it's also surprisingly realistic for a phone game (or any game these days for that matter), having things like your shots being affected by the wind, dud torpedoes, damage models for individual turrets, smoke screens, etc.

It's the sequel to a game called Pacific Fleet that was released a while back, which was also a very good game - but Atlantic Fleet seems far superior (and not just because it's the Royal Navy this time Razz ) as it includes a Dynamic Campaign (British and German) where you have to build and repair ships and send task forces and the like, rather than just individual battles (though it also includes those, such as the Battle of the River Plate, Battle of the Denmark Strait as well as various U-Boat Convoy attacks/Convoy Escorts)





Currently there's an issue with it on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) where it crashes every now and again, but to be fair it was only released yesterday - just thought you might be interested incase you get bored away from your PC and suddenly have the urge to recreate Sink the Bismarck, or the Cruel Sea, or something. Laughing



I tried to fight the Battle of the Denmark Strait, but the Hood sank (shocking I know!) but at least it sank slowly this time and managed to knock out the front turret of the Bismarck - then the game crashed. Laughing

You should be able to get a free/light version of Pacific Fleet, but obviously it won't have as many features and such.
