Crete 1941 is a turn based strategy game set on the Mediterranean Theater during the Second World War.
You are in command of the German forces taking part in the very risky airborne invasion of Crete. Known as Operation Mercury it was the first mainly airborne invasion in military history. In addition to numeric superiority British commanders knew about the German airborne plan thanks to their code breaking efforts. However, against all the odds and in spite of major losses, the elite German paratroopers managed to seize control of some key airfields allowing them to airlift in more reinforcements to turn the tide of an uneven struggle and eventually capture of the entire island of Crete.

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, it’s 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!
