Right on schedule, Desert Fox: The Battle of El Alamein has charged into the App Store.

Desert Fox is the latest installment in the Crisis in Command series of World War II strategy games developed by Shenandoah Studio.

As its title suggests, the game is set around and during the 1942 summer standoff between Erwin Rommel aka Desert Fox and Bernard Montgomery. It poses the crucial question, “Will you hold the line as the Commonwealth or capture the Suez Canal as the Axis?”

Desert Fox notably features a campaign mode that gives you control over the wider engagement rather than just the final conflict. It also challenges you to use deadly obstacles, including minefields and terrain hazards, to your advantage in desert warfare, be it against AI adversaries, local competitors, or online opponents.
