Darmstadt, October 15th 2007 - Panzer Tactics DS is the first authentic, turn-based Second World War strategy game for the Nintendo DS and is a game of unprecedented depth. In the second release in the "Training films for future generals" series the developers show the variety found in the more than 150 different units and how they are controlled. The basic tips offered by Game Designer Christoph Quas from the Austrian development studio Sproing are not only valuable for the 30 nerve-wracking historical single-player missions, but are also important in multi-player battles with up to 4 players.
