A turn-based strategy game like no other has landed.
Approachable, absorbing and visually impressive yet detailed, Battle Academy aims to revolutionise the strategy games market with a blend of intuitive design and compelling game play driven by cutting edge technical innovation.
The team at Slitherine worked with Professor John Buckley, Military Historian at the University of Wolverhampton and a keen wargamer himself, to make sure that the strategy, tactics, scenarios and available firepower of the battles fought in WW2 were turned intorealistic AI behaviour, powering expertly crafted battles.
The game engine is also completely script-driven, allowing players to create their own missions and scenario in a simple and effective way.
The revolutionary server-based PBEM++ Slitherine system completes the package, for a gaming experience that will certainly please both hard core wargamers and newcomers.

Review on PC Games and Reviews
7.6/10 - It's a great introduction to turn based war games as well as being engaging enough for seasoned fans of the genre.
Review on TeamTeaBag
8.5/10 - ...the sounds of an anti-tank gun taking out an enemy Panzer or a well-timed artillery strike stopping a battalion in their tracks never gets old.
Review on Gamer's Hall
92% (GOLD AWARD) - [Translated from German] Battlefield Academy offers entertaining and exciting game play ... Slitherine managed to put out a game that understands how to drop players into an atmospheric and tenderly designed world in which you can plunge right into the game through easy and intuitive controls ... the love for detail and the richness of units in the game provides an exclamation mark.
Review on NetWargamingItalia
7.5/10 - Overall I think BA deserves a vote more than adequate score, despite the simplicity, or perhaps because of that, in addition to the implementation which is clean and well kept, for its innovative approach and the desire to bring new players to wargaming, although it's also fun for veterans.
