Easily the best and most complex android game of the Conflict Series yet. This android game does a amazing job of illustrating the difficulties the Germans faced in invading Amazing Britain. What if they had? What if they failed? Might that have delayed the invasion of Russia or US entry into the war? Might the Germans had the motivation (and time) to develop the A-Bomb? The possibilities are endless. A good"what if?"
Out of all Nuutinen's games, this is my favorite. Simulates air, sea and land operations without onerous rules or bookkeeping. Playability is high and even has difficulty levels so you can play an AI that definitely ate its Wheaties! Playing on Very Hard setting now and it is living up to its name. Fascinating historical "what if" and a amazing android game to simulate it.
Highly recommended; simple to pick up the android game mechanics but challenging to master, there is a reason that Joni is a successful developer. The sea lane protection element is another challenge to keeping your troops supplied and reinforcements coming. Really fun, enjoyable time suck.
Amazing land wars and landing invasion. But, where's the german luftwaffe help the germans had planned to invade England. Airfields you capture are useless without planes. With luftwaffe help it would create life a bite easier. Also more destroyers are required to combat the British navy. Just six ship? Yay, they don't latest long versus a naval forces that outnumber your navel force.
Challenging scenario for veterans of the Conflict Series. Based on a hypothetical invasion of the UK, it introduces fresh elements like supply ships, destroyers, ambiphibious landings, and looting for supplies. Offers amazing replay value to discover various landing zones, etc. Probably a bit complex for first time players of the Conflict Series. I'd recommend starting with the Stalingrad or Eastern Front android games first.
I have played a lot of of Joni's games. They take me back to long days with the Avalon Hill classics. First time I tried Sea Lion I thought it was close to impossible. Allow me just say that you are beautiful likely to hit some tight supply situations and if you are not managing the naval side well, you are in for some pain! this time around I got it right and was able to manage a successful campaign. Thanks, Joni. I bought a better Android device device just to play your games. Want some of the $ went your way.
Hard but fun. Enjoyed trying to take London. Sadly a British armored division smashed through my lines near Woking eventually leading to my lines near Southampton being encircled. and with supplies running short, operation sealion failed. I'm going to test again !
The main complaint is that the cover art on Amazon shows an F6F Hellcat after what appears to be a bombing run versus a cruiser or battleship. This book has NOTHING TO DO with F6Fs and very small to say about naval aviation. If you wish to know about Hellcats, check out Barrett Tillman's perfect book of that is book is about the saga of 9 submarines that penetrated the Sea of Japan in the waning months of WWII, as told by COMSUBPAC. Amazing story, the "Hell" is "Hell's Bells" an experimental mine detecting sonar set that the invaders used to gain access through heavily mined channels in the Straights of Tsushima and exit via La Perouse Straight. It was a very productive mission, especially that late in the battle when there was small Japanese shipping left to sink. The mission was a amazing success both in terms of shipping sunk and impact on Japanese home front morale, marred only by the loss of one boat.A amazing (true) story by a commander whose military success was matched by his ability to communicate the experience of his sailors! BTW, another amazing book about submarines late in the battle is Eugene Fluckey's acc of the Barb.
This is a story written by an Admiral who constantly provides name,and home tpwn of 1940s officers that this infor does not help. Multiple put names are utillized and no maps are provided. A reader may know where the Sea of Japan is but nothing else like places, depths, Maps and an understanding of the Sea, its weather snd water, etc.. of Navy lingo used throughout the book. The author was a amazing writer, long gone I assume, and the book needs some editing to provide a dictionary of the lingo and the a lot of locations mentioned. I'm old and massive into maps and atlases but frequently didn't know where the action was for a 4 year period in the e peoples whose names are referred are not usable,since they are mostly long passed away except people like MacArthur, Nimitz, Halsey, Spruance, and a few others. It is not clear how a Jap vessel's tonnage is always known at the time of sinking. What is a patrol boat, theirs and ours. How is a destroyer escort various from a destroyer. A Lingo dictionary would be a huge help.
Very interesting part of the WW2 in the Pacific. But the cover art lead me to expect a book about the warrior plane Hellcat. You may wish to allow your cover art dept know what the book is about.
This story with the Submarine Fleet in the Pacific toward the end of WW2. Amazing story of the use of sonar for the fist time to tutorial submarines through mine infested waters and a tribute to the men who crewed these boats. If you ever obtain to Muskegon, Michigan, go through the USS Silversides and you'll gain respect for the sailors who risked their lives and helped victory the war. Personally, I got claustrophobic just past the aft torpedo room.
Well, the cover is a we bit misleading. I picked this book based on the cover, thought it was about Hellcat airplanes and not about submarines. Shame on me. Turned out wonderfully, though. This book is well written and simple to read. I found it very suspenseful for a navel history title. Amazing story of the invention of sonar and it's use to save countless sailers ' lives and shorten the war. All these submariners were real heros. 52 subs and the thousands of U.S. sailors went down with their ships to a horrible death. Proves once again the sacrifices members of the greatest generation created for our freedom. I once visited a navel museum years ago in Fa!l River Massachusetts and went aboard the USS Silver Fish, a monument to the thousands of men in submarines "still on patrol"-very sad. If it were not for these men, we al! would be bowing down to our capitives and our women would be "comfort women". Go to the light, my gallant sbmariners. God speed and amazing hunting.
I liked that this book was written by a man who was actually there when the action took place. He gave where it was due and he backed his subordinates extremely well. He led from the front and was prepared to take the risks along with those he sent into harm's method if he would have been allowed to. A very amazing read about a small known mission that significantly shortened the battle versus Japan.
I usually like anything to do with WWII and history. I did not like or finish this book.Looking at the cover photo you would have thought it was going to be about the Grumman Hellcat warrior planes and missions they were involved in during the war. This was not the case. The book was written by Admiral Charles A. Lockwood and it is about submarine warfare. It was I guess a written documentary of a particular operation during the war. Admiral Lockwood is deserving of character worship level admiration but this was not what I thought I was buying. I just erased a couple lines that I had written here. Allow me just say that I did not have fun the method this one was written and that I did not [email protected]#$%!. Your Mileage May Vary!
All my fault, actually, but reading the title of the book and seeing the cover art of a Grumman Hellcat Warrior dive bombing a Japanese ship, created me think erroneously that it was about carrier based Grumman Hellcat warriors and their actions in WWII in the Pacific versus Japan. Had I checked a small closer and read the description, or downloaded some of it, I would have realized my error. Since I already have the book "Sink 'Em All: Submarine Warfare in the Pacific" by Charles A. Lockwood, my for "Hellcats of the Sea" was wasted on a subject I already had knowledge of. I am sadder but wiser. Always know your book before you it, as I will from now on.
I was most irritated at the publisher who clearly did not read the book. The cover depicts a warrior that was called a hellcat but had nothing to do with the story which is about submarines! The text makes what was a brave and difficult thing to accomplish seem a bit boring.
"Hellcats of the Sea," is a fascinating acc of a vital mission in the Pacific during WW II. A secret operation to cripple Japanese warfare in the fifteen day happening to sink and destroy their ships. Remarkable historical actualization, and a amazing read for WW II history buffs.
This was the album that gave N'Dour an international audience. It opens with the lilting The Lion/Gaiende, followed by the soulful Shakin' The Tree where Peter Gabriel contributes vocals, the lively, fast-paced Kocc Barma and Bamako, a jazzy track. Old Tucson has a charming R&B flavor, Macoy is atmospheric and subdued, while Sama Doom is another polirhythmic delight. N'Dour sings in both English and Wolof, his native language, but his voice is so expressive that language doesn't matter much. The instrumentation and backing vocals are elegant and graceful throughout - full marks for expert production. The Lion is very accessible, without compromising the integrity of the artist's roots, a highly successful fusion of Western and African.

I wasn't ready to say goodbye to the mates I had found in these pages. Whether it was the side characters, who I surprisingly teared up for more than once, or Rob and Scar, they all stood out and became unforgettable. Each of them helped create this trilogy my favorite retelling of Robin Hood ever! But I do have a warning, that ending left me wanting so much more! But regardless of the ending, if you're looking for a series that is filled with action, adventure, love, honor, and friendship then this is your book!We started out the story with Scar in prison, guarded by a fresh hero David. Allow it be known, that I absolutely adored David! He accompanied Scar on her journey, after her escape from Prince John's imprisonment, and his interaction with another hero had he laughing so hard! The banter between David and this other character, who shall not be named, created me feel as though they were falling for each other. But their conflicts, banter, and secret moments were left unanswered. And I so want that it would have been explained and touched upon.But as their journey progressed, something was blatantly missing. Rob. My heart ached for Rob and Scar to meet up and be back together again! I just wanted them to have another kiss, another stolen moment, another time where they could be happy. And ohhhhhh what I got was SO much more than I ever could have wanted. I was beyond ecstatic with how Scar and Rob's love transformed and those scenes were definitely my favorite moments in this book. Both of them were brave, fearless when needed, and brought so much amazing into the globe that they deserved each other. They were the best pairing I have ever seen in a Robin Hood story!But even though this is my favorite Robin Hood retelling, and I loved Rob and Scar together, that ending left so much to be desired for. It felt as though it was rushed, and I was left wanting more resolutions. Repercussions I wanted handed out didn't exist, and I was left feeling a small nervous over Rob and Scar's future. And then there was a death that was lost in the shuffle, which created me so very sad. So I closed this book feeling utterly conflicted. Because Lion Heart was a solid 5 until those latest few ying all of that, this series was still phenomenal. It had a [email protected]#$% heroine, a sexy as sin hero, and action that dropped my stomach! These books were so much fun! Yet if you're like me and prefer your endings a small bit more tied up, then just proceed cautiously. Because knowing what I know now, I'd still read this series all over again!
I simply loved this entry in the trilogy--it was perhaps my favorite. The story took me through a veritable rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I gasped, I swooned. There were even times I wanted to reach into the book and throttle certain characters. This book took me on an awesome ride, and I enjoyed every turn of the page. Thanks Ms. Gaughen!Note to the clean readers: Like the other books in this trilogy, there is some profanity (the Lord's name is taken in vain quite often) and there are some steamy kiss scenes (though definitely nothing I would call smutty or crass).
One of the main reasons I read YA is because I love stories about people figuring out who they are. This book is all that and then some. I loved the dynamic between Small and Lion and their parents, how complex all their mates are, and how REAL the story feels. At first I thought the author was just checking off as a lot of famous themes as possible — diverse characters, mixed race relationships, divorce and nontraditional families, mental illness, LGBTQ characters, bullying — but it's so well done that the story wouldn't feel right without any of these issues.I'll definitely read more from this author.
I love this book and cry at the end every time I read it because it is so touching and beautiful. I read it to all my children when they were younger and I give it as a show often. This year we gave a copy to my daughter's teacher for her class and she wrote to me "Thank you does not do justice to how my heart feels. I love this book so much. I read it every year to my class to teach empathy, friendship, and second chances." She is exactly right.
I'm really sorry but, it's hard to move the controller and it's not even like a amazing android game so I will give you 3 stars and please create sure that you make it easier to move the controller and I will be satisfied to give you people 5 stars for fixing the controller also,can you please create true animal android games that are super cute and also fun? thanks!😘

Quick to special ui compared to other apps of same type. not user-friendly. Feels like it is only an application to view the of the week, and not to search an item in the store, or online pricing or an photo blue text does not when tapped take you to the item or its zone in your shop nor description
Illustrations are wonderful, neat and clean yet interesting and detailed. I bought this book for my mini-lions/students. Humorous story, want the latest page was a small various but it's ok. Moral of the story, a amazing lion looks out for his own (even if it's a house cat :) )...aka take care of your friends
