Battle Fleet 2: WW2 in the Pacific is a continuation of the turn-based marine strategy that was released in May 2012 exclusively on Apple computers and mobile devices. The game was created under the responsibility of the authors of the original from Capital j Media, a company involved in the production of video games and Internet films. The team has a mobile version of Line of Defense Tactics strategy by Studio 3000 AD.
As in the case of the original, the action of the game takes us back to the times of World War II in the Pacific, where the forces of the United States and Japan fought against each other. At the beginning of the game we create our own fleet of warships, divided into 6 classes distinguished by different firepower and mobility. Then we equip the units with the appropriate type of weaponry, using a wide arsenal of cannons, torpedoes and various types of artillery, as well as we appoint captains, choosing them from among officers equipped with different special abilities, which can often prevail over the success of the whole mission.
We send a team created in this way to the fire of battle, during which our main target are ships, land bases and artillery, as well as planes sent from airports, cruisers or enemy aircraft carriers. The competition takes place in a turn-based system and its mechanics uses solutions known from such games as Scorched Earth or Worms. Each salvo directed towards the enemy requires first to determine the angle and strength of the shot. It is also possible to use the terrain as a natural protective shield. Thanks to the “war fog” option and the participation of different types of units, each of the battles requires the right tactical approach. Individual skills of captains are also an additional variety, who, by teaching special action cards, allow for example, to improve the mobility or accuracy of the ship or surprise the opponent with a unique type of attack.
In addition to the classic campaign mode, in which we lead the U.S. Army, Battle Fleet 2 also offers a skirmish mode and a functional multiplayer mode, where we can compete with live players in the “hot seat” variant or via the Internet. It is also worth noting the full cross-platformity of the game, allowing for joint fun of PC users and mobile devices. Compared to the original, the graphics created on the Unity engine is fully three-dimensional – although the whole action is shown in the top view and we do not have the ability to change the angle of the camera. The authors, however, took care of the proper realism of their production, imitating authentic models of Japanese and American ships taking part in the war in the Pacific.
