Description

Take command over RAF during the WW2 history turning point, the Battle of Britain!

The goal of the game is to defend Great Britain against German bombing raids.

The game has two distinct gameplay experiences where:

* The player manages war production and squadron placement

* The player organizes patrol routes and tactics

Once combat is initiated the player can lead their squadrons to attack waves of German bombers utilizing simple touch or mouse commands.

The game follows the historical timeline very closely, but at the same time - the game mechanics are easy to learn (yet hard to master) and it provides great entertainment for both seasoned and novice players.

* There are 8 aircraft types in the game - including of course the famous Supermarine Spitfire!

* Every pilot is earning his own experience - witness your rookies become aces!

* Manage the British war machine - decide what should be built and where

* Fight epic air battles!

* Lead English, Polish, Czechs, Canadian and New Zealands squadrons to fight for freedom!

The game implements ‘German Command AI” which results in each campaign playing out differently. No two games will ever be the same.

  1. Combined strategic AND tactical air-war...
    by macapp_mac, Germany - Oct 7th 2015

    ...is the promise inherent in THE FEW's (TF) sales-pitch.
    And while the devs' approach feels spot-on, there is still a lot of potential:

    WWII has been serving as background for a myriad of games of all genres, with a good number of them being some sort of „Strategy"-related.

    Albeit, the number of games embracing the topic of "WWII Aerial Combat" from a strategic perspective is rather limited. Concernig the "Battle Of Britain", there's even only ONE other strategy-game I know of (aptly called ‚BoB'; I stand to be corrected).

    TF promises to push that limit by adding the operational level, in a fashion similar to the „Ace Patrol"-series. Maybe, the devs of TF should have taken a closer look at that series of games, before publishing TF. TF's interface feels clumsy, there's no tutorial, and the player's tactical options are limited.
    ‚Limited' is also the keyword for the strategic portion of the game: Not much to do other than allocating planes & AA-guns...

    Verdict: Without any major update/-grade, up to now the best part of TF is its most interesting historic setting.
