In Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein, a WWII turn-based strategy game, players take control at the turning point of the battle for North Africa. Will you hold the line as the Commonwealth or capture the Suez Canal as the Axis? Find out today on the App Store.

A Grand Campaign
In this historical strategy game, players battle across a grand campaign, making key decisions and controlling the final engagement. They must use minefields, ridges, and depressions to shape the battle lines. Diving deeper than Battle of the Bulge and Drive on Moscow, the campaign mode offers a new level of control and customization to players. As commander, players must decide when to defend or attack, preserving valuable forces, or risking them in a daring offensive. Each match results in a unique play experience.

A Wargame for Every Player
Desert Fox, designed from the ground up for iPhone and iPad, is a thrilling wargame experience for both casual and veteran players. To help new players, we have created a new tutorial system with four learning scenarios that teach concepts as they are encountered by the player. Desert Fox is a perfect introduction to turn-based strategy gaming.
