Capital j Media, developers of Cube Smash, have finally announced that the sequel to their hit iOS game, Battle Fleet, is now available to download for Mac and iPad. Battle Fleet 2 is the cross-platform reimagination of the original game, featuring improved graphics, tactics, ships, as well as multiplayer. Set in the WW2 era with fights taking place around island chains in The Pacific, players manually control each ship’s loadout and must maneuver each ship in turn based combat. Firing on enemy ships is done by power and angle controls, similar to Worms from Team17 Software. Ballistic weapons use real time collision physics, allowing you to use terrain of islands as cover or even allowing individual shells to take out key systems such as enemy guns, flight decks, rudders, and more. When comparing Battle Fleet 2 to its predecessor we could tell that there has been a big improvement between the two in terms of graphics and overall gameplay. So with that said, if you were a fan of the original Battle Fleet, we highly recommend you check out Battle Fleet 2.
