Overview

This game is a classic hex and counter game converted for Android.

There is a map of North Africa divided into hexes.

Each hex can be controled by one of two players: One player represents the Italian (and later the German) forces, while the other represents the Allied forces.

Each player has a number of combat formations (units) which they may move around the map in an attempt to win the war.

Units have a name designation at the top, a symbol representing the unit type in the middle, a combat strength in the lower left and a movement rate in the lower right.

Victory can be achieved by capturing more objectives than the enemy - a major victory if you capture them all: Objectives depend on the scenario, Allied objectives are shown by green circles, Axis by yellow, while a joint objective is both colors.

There area eight scenarios:

1. Italian invasion 1940, and operation Compass.
2. Rommel arrives 1941 and storms across the desert, but cannot take Tobruk.
3. Operation Crusader - Rommel is defeated and Tobruk relieved.
4. Gazala - Rommel's masterpiece.
5. Mersa Matruh - The pursuit of the 8th Army into Egypt.
6. First Alamein - Auchinlek halts Rommel.
7. Alam Halfa - A desperate last throw of the dice.
8. Second Alamein - Montgomery annihilates Rommel.

All games can be played 2 player or as either side against the NOOK.

    Excellent adaptation of old school hex and counter games such as Squad Leader and other classic Avalon Hill games. Hope to see more games like this on the Nook Store. Interface and instructions could be slightly improved. Overall great game for strategy lovers.

    I like this kind of games very much, and this one looks fine. For the most, I always read the manual, before I play a game of this sort, but this is unfortunately quite impossible this time. The manual of "Rommel in Africa" appears totally unreadable on my Nook Color. It is dark grey text on black background.
    Only 2 stars - but I really hope an update will fix this issue soon :)

    Good but hard game

    For the cost and the platform it is an excellent value. A clearer set of tactics would have been nice.
