iOS game.

Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan by Grand Cauldron
https://appsto.re/us/es5cbb.i

Blood Angels Imperium vs Tyranids Campaign but skirmish also available with Imperium vs Imperium.

Various classes and sub classes of ships available. Control battle groups of them.

IMG_1817.PNG

Turn based but free space - no hexes or tiles. Set Power (I.e. Move) and Heading (I.e. Turn) to get Firing Arcs on enemy.

IMG_1818.PNG

Combat is a matter of selecting Weapons that are in the appropriate Arcs to target the enemy and then rolling 'dice' to hit and damage. Weapons range from Lances, Batteries, Torpedoes, Attack Craft, Boarding Craft, and some of the more unique Nova / Hell Cannons, etc.

I believe PC has its own BFG game that's similar but not exactly the same.

Will they release it for a decent platform too?

I saw posters for this at Warhammerfest, I just assumed that it was an expansion for BFG on the PC!

They said if it does well they'll eventually put it on Android, which for now sucks for those of us who use such adult devices. ;)

Could be months down the line though, last I read.

Game rules are simple, graphics are simple but strategy seems deep.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to keep my broadsides pointed to the enemy while manuevering numerous ships around and trying to avoid explosions, debris, fighters, etc.

Also weapons like Torpedoes have travel time, so trying to anticipate where enemy ships will move to, etc.

Then when shields are weak on one side, trying to get the other side around to face the enemy.

There are also decisions to make like ship orders like making double maneuvers at the expense of shooting, reloading the main weapon, etc. and whether to brace / overcharge shields when fired on at the expense of firing later, etc.

One thing I read is that they tried to emulate the board game as much as possible, and get it as close as possible to "Battlefleet Gothic Video Game", and while the Armada game comes somewhat close, they are much farther from the TTG than this little game is, it seems.

Yes it does.

Imperium, Space Marines, Tyranids.

Set point limit, pick ships, fight.

I've been playing through the tutorials and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. Some bad text in there but I'm quite picky, I don't think most folks will care much. I love the strategy, and I missed the board game back in the day so this is a nice treat for me.

Having played the app game on Saturday night then a game of table top bfg on Sunday I can safely say no other game is going to beat this for faithfully recreating a table top game on a tablet.
Just needs a few more races adding

I got it a couple of days ago and i've been quite addicted to it. Only wish they had more races available, other than that, this is easily one of the best app purchases i've ever made.

Love the game. Chaos and Eldar would be great.

Am losing badly in the Campaign though, I guess I'm not a very good Battlefleet Commander, hah.

The campaign is a bit frustrating, winning all of the battles but still losing fleets in the tyranid turn :(
The mission against 40 kraken was fun, thought I was going to get minced but killed them all with only the loss of 2 Cobras :)

In campaign battles, even though I'm winning, I always run out of time then the battle ends and both my Fleet and the Tyranid fleet get wiped.

You mean the turn limit? Yeah. I have the same issue. I've started taking a lot more torpedo ships because of the fast work they do. I think the challenge curve is pretty good, but having never played the TT game I feel like there's a lot to learn.

I just got this game (hopefully no necro) and can I just say that the computer seems to love giving all the good rolls to the tyranids? even with target locked and other re-rolls I always seem to fail while the tyranids pass every single darned Brace for impact save, even against a crapton of torpedos?

My brother in law thinks the dice are against him on his version as well, I completed the game without losing a battle so they were obviously on my side for my games. Over a lot of games it should even out?
