Game manual: Work in progress

 

About:

In "Frontline: World War II" players command the Allied forces through some of the most famous battles of the Second World War freeing Europe, Africa, and the Pacific theatre from the hands of the Axis powers.

Fight your way through 45 epic WWII battles (Campaign & scenarios), aim your targets carefully, counter-attack, and strategically coordinate your squads. The study of enemy tactics and the use of  Special abilities will lead to victory!  

New units become available as you progress through the campaign based on your ingenuity, skill, tactics, and chronology.
All Units improve and unlock new behaviors once they reach the experience needed, abilities that will prove later on indispensable in battle: Camouflage, Sabotage, Entrench, Over-watch, Smoke-screens, AT grenades, Artillery barrage, Shell Shock, Transport, Special Panzers, APCR, Armor Suppression, Routed, Infantry Charge,  sharp-shooters, encirclement & flanking, deflections, penetration, critical hits, and ballistics that depend on the range of contact.

in this turn-based, offline-operational tactics-strategy game you get to lead your army to victory by conquering objectives in any strategy you find best.

The "Frontline Games Series" is a Solo Dev effort, I answer and appreciate all feedback.
