Battle Fleet 2 Greenlit!
Submarines added in v1.10
About the Subs
  • Submarines are armed with 2 forward torpedo tubes, a deck gun and an aft torpedo.
  • Destroyers & frigates now have depth charges in addition to their regular weapon slots. They can also detect submerged subs within a short range.
  • Subs can dive between 3 different depths during their move: Surfaced, Periscope, Max Depth. Each provides advantages and disadvantages affecting movement, detection & weapons. The sub must move in order to change depth and can only change 1 depth level per turn (i.e.: can't go from surfaced to max depth in one turn, has to go to periscope depth first).
  • The deck gun can only be fired while the sub is surfaced, and torpedoes can only be used while surfaced or at periscope depth.
  • While submerged they will remain hidden from view unless they are either within the sub-detection range of a destroyer or frigate, or within a short range of any ship when at periscope depth.
  • Any weapon can damage a sub when surfaced, and inflict partial damage when at periscope depth (plunging fire). Only depth charges can damage a sub at max depth.
  • Recon flights can detect subs at any depth.
  • At max depth a submarine's speed is reduced.

If you have just started a campaign I suggest starting a new one to get the starting fleets that include subs and prevent any sort of compatibility issues.

More New Features
Besides the submarines, I have also updated the campaign AI to provide more of a challenge at Captain difficulty, fixed a few bugs, added French, Polish & German translation (accessed through Options in the main menu), and added destructible terrain. So now you can actually punch a hole through mountains and islands!

Description
Welcome to the Pacific Admiral! You’ve been assigned to a special fleet task force code named Battle Fleet 2. Your mission is to select from a full complement of ships; Frigates, destroyers, cruisers, battleships, and carriers. Then select their armaments, their captain, then bombard and destroy a hidden naval battery set up by the enemy on a small island chain too close to our refuel depot for the top brass' comfort. You'll have complete control of this mission, all the way down to what angle and how much power should be put into each shot. The task is simple, sir, use a carrier's aircraft to run recon, find the naval battery, and destroy it by any means necessary. Expect to be ambushed by the naval garrison, probably hiding from direct line of sight, so don't do anything reckless. This is your first task in a long line of difficult objectives to overcome. Battle Fleet 2 is at your command, Admiral!

Battle Fleet 2 is the radically improved sequel to the original and has kept the “Worms” / “Scorched Earth” style angle+power mechanic, but now features full 3D modeling of terrain, ships, and ship hit locations. Hit the the engines and cripple cripple the enemy's maneuverability, or aim for the command center and disable the ship for an entire turn. Ships are more realistic in which weapon compliments they can carry, and aiming/firing, as well as moving, is more intuitive. Battle Fleet 2 also now features Fog of War, allowing for stealth tactics and surprise attacks to be a viable strategy as well as adding the importance of using ships and aircraft for recon as well as attacks. With a full featured campaign and a variety of single play scenarios, Battle Fleet 2 will keep even the saltiest of sea-dogs satisfied.

Feature List
* Build your fleet from 5 different ship classes each with different hardpoint locations for mounting different weapons, different mobility, and different hit locations.
* Use small caliber guns to pinpoint your shot and switch to devastating salvo mode, forcing all available guns in range and firing arc to fire at the same location.
* Equip your ships with a wide variety of weapons including AA guns, torpedoes, and a plethora of different caliber naval artillery.
* Utilize or neutralize a variety of aircraft, including recon planes, fighters, and bombers, launched from island bases, aircraft carriers, or cruisers.
* Assign captains to each ship with special skills and abilities, like additional command cards or better mobility.
* Play the strategic USA Campaign mode, random skirmish mode, full cross platform multiplayer, or even hotseat multiplayer.
* Use recon to clear Fog of War and defeat enemy ground based airfields and coastal artillery.
* Deploy Strategic Command Cards to surprise your enemies with special actions like deploying mines, sabotage, enhanced aiming, airstrikes and more!
* Battle Fleet 2 features full 3D models of US and Japanese WW2 era ships.

Battle Fleet 1 was the #1 game on the Mac App Store in the summer of 2012 when it was released on that platform. You can find out more about the original game at http://battlefleetgame.com/

@hags, thanks! Yes, the campaign is actually going to get some improvement in the next 2 updates. The first one (with submarines) is coming out within a few weeks and there's been a lot of AI improvements especially in the campaign. Hopefully we can add even more content and keep improving the AI as the game grows.

Great arcade fleet game. Very enjoyable, but campaign is too short. AI could be tougher.

not bad :)

I think graphics need to be better :x

@Jimathus, I think you might be looking at the original game's price which has been dropped. Battle Fleet 2 is the same price on Mac & PC.

awesome concept
Jimathus Jul 19, 2014 @ 12:15pm 
Wow seriously? .99 cents on app stores, 1.99 on Mac, and whopping price gouging on pc of 9.99. Skipping this for sure. Not sure why devs think its okay to screw pc gamers.

Ahhh had no idea it was a phone game. Might have to pass on it then. They never translate well to PC. Great promise though. I just never buy phone games for PC.
