Apple Games' latest feature enters the battle filled seas of Battlestations: Midway. In the game players experience World War II combat in a blend of action and strategy as they lead a host of US and Allied air, sea and underwater units through missions in hotspots from Pearl Harbor to the Battle of Midway itself. Apple's article features an overview of the game, comments from producer Adam Lay, a history of WWII naval combat, and tips and tricks for success.
“We wanted to offer a mix of real-time strategy and hands-on action via air and sea to deliver a unique gameplay experience you can’t find anywhere else,” Lay explains. The USS Kane has negotiated the deadly strait, but a Japanese destroyer waits on the other side. Lay and I steady ourselves on a handrail as torpedoes slam into the side of the ship. Walker instructs his men to unleash a fusillade of torpedoes and artillery shells at the Hatsushimo. The exchange inflicts much damage on both sides, but the Japanese ship begins taking on more water than it can handle and eventually dips below the surface.Read the full article at the link provided below.

“By taking direct control of realistically recreated units — including battleships, aircraft carriers, submarines, and planes of all classes — on maps spanning thousands of miles and covering islands, airfields, and shipyards, action and strategy are completely under your control at a scale and level of realism not before seen,” Lay says.
