Battle of Leyte Island 1944 is a turn based strategy game set on the island of Leyte in Philippines on the Pacific theater during the Second World War.
When withdrawing from Philippines in 1942 General Douglas MacArthur made a promise: The US would be back! In October 1944 American forces made a bold amphibious landing on the island of Leyte, surprising the Japanese defenders who were expecting a safe landing on one of the southernmost islands. The surprising timing (before Monsoon season) and location (Leyte is located in the middle of Philippines) guaranteed U.S. forces easy first weeks. However, Japanese HQ made the decision to settle the fate of Philippines on the Leyte and started transporting in all the reinforcements they could spare from the nearby islands. The combat on Leyte eventually escalated into massive battle requiring U.S. to commit all their reserves to stay true to their promise.

+ 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.
In order to be a victorious general, 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.

Conflict-Series by Joni Nuutinen has offered highly rated Android-only strategy board games since 2011, and even the first scenarios are still actively updated. The campaigns are based on the time-tested gaming mechanics TBS (turn-based strategy) enthusiasts are familiar with from both the classic PC war games and legendary tabletop board games. I want to thank the fans for all the well thought-out suggestions over the years which have allowed these campaigns to improve at a much higher rate than what any solo indie developer could dream of. If you have feedback about this board game series please use email, this way we can have a constructive back and forth chat without the limits of the store's comment system. In addition, because I have huge number of projects on multiple stores, its just not sensible to spend handful of hours each day going through hundreds of pages spread all over the Internet to see if there is a question somewhere -- just send me an email and I will get back to you. Thanks for understanding!
