Wargaming on iOS just got better. Introducing Warfare Nations by VOLV Interactive, an online strategy game following in the footsteps of Advance Wars and Neo Geo classic Metal Slug. Warfare Nations can be downloaded for free from the App Store today.
The Great War has descended upon Europe. You’re the Commander, the only one standing between glorious victory and certain death. Your troops need your leadership–now more than ever—to survive one of the bloodiest conflicts in human history. Enter the shallow trenches of Europe and show the world what true fighting spirit looks like!
Choose a side (Silver Fox or North Polar), and then assemble troops and resources in order to take over enemy bases of increasing difficulty. Train your troops (riflemen, sharpshooters, medics, grenadiers and more); build armor units (armored cars, lightweight/heavy tanks); summon air support when needed (air superiority fighters, bombers); and establish outposts on enemy territory to generate indispensable iron and gold—the key resources for expanding your army and upgrading your troops.
“Warfare Nations offers players the complexity of a PC strategy game with the usability of a mobile app. It’s a game we’ve wanted to make for a long time—and we’re happy it turned out the way it did,” says Jack He, marketing manager at VOLV Interactive. “We think players will enjoy the look of Warfare Nations as well as the soundtrack inspired by epic war movies. Silver Fox or North Polar? May the best army win!”
Warfare Nations can be played solo (single-player campaign) or against opponents from all over the world through the PvP Outpost.
- Two sides to every story: Pledge your allegiance to either Silver Fox or North Polar.
- War can be beautiful: Gorgeous retina graphics with 4 unique environments--Outskirts, Forest, Countryside, and Ruins.
- Dominate both land and sky with 50+ powerful combat units: 9 different infantry troops and armored units, plus 7 unique air support units.
- Conduct research to take your army to the next level: 35+ resource bases to explore and research new technologies.
- Draw your troops into battle: Line-drawing control system (think Flight Control).
- Engage in boss fights: 7 personality-laden bosses between levels—each fight worthy of a victory bonus.
- Build your army: Collect enough gold and iron to upgrade your HQ and strengthen your troops.
- Quick online battles: Always fast-paced—with just 1 minute to get started, and 5 minutes per round.
- Obliterate your enemies online: Challenge thousands of other players, raid their bases, and enjoy the spoils of war!
- Marching madness: Awesome soundtrack that pays homage to the heroic war movies of the 20th century.
- Smooth operator: Seamless connection for smartphones and tablets with matchmaking; supports Wi-Fi and 2G/3G/4G.
Warfare Nations is free to download and play. A discounted Starter Pack will be available for a limited time ($1.99)—providing players with enough diamonds, iron, and gold to teach the enemy a few valuable life lessons :)

In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...
