The folks over at Pocket Tactics have reviewed Atlantic Fleet. Couple of highlights are below or head to Pocket Tactics for the full review.

“If the true test of a game is how much time you spend playing it, then Atlantic Fleet is probably the game of the year.”

“The tactical model that underpins Atlantic Fleet is a remarkable balance of movie-style action and detailed simulation, and that creates a lot of emergent fun.”

“The finishing touch on top of all of these elements is Atlantic Fleet’s canny AI, which seems to be as attached to its ships as you are to yours.”

      I realy love Atlantic fleet – since i played pacific fleet i wished this game would be adopted for Atlantic – and you did a good job

      but i miss the ship upgrade system fom pacific fleet
      i would at least like to reenfoce the anti aircraft guns (witch had be done with nearly all ships during ww2)
      an additional raidar against the smoke screen would be nice
      and i have 2 idears for the superweapons like in pacific fleet

      the “fritz x” shipwrack missiele and the “tallboy” bonb for the british

      its also a bit unfair that the germans dont have an aircraftcarrier could you please add the “Graf Zeppelin” she never serverd in active duty but she was 90% complete in ww2

      ps i also would like to see the the type XXI 21 submariene in the game

        Good feedback.
        The upgrade system was dropped in favour of many more ship classes. In addition, now if you lose a ship in a campaign or BotA, you have to buy another to replace it.
        So if you lose a Destroyer, you could replace it with one with heavier guns (a Tribal), or many more torpedoes (J,K,N Class). This essentially replaces the upgrade system as you buy ships with the characteristics you want in your fleet.

        Fritz X is already in game along with the Hs293.
        Tallboy wasn’t used against shipping targets, but Gran Slam was and the latter is in as well.

          thanks for your quick answer

          i understand the intenson but i think the option of making your favorit ships better was a good motivation for earning credits specialy when you already have the “best” ships

          the upgrade system dosent have to be as huge as in PF were you can add amour – just some litte gadges like raidar , better anti air guns , damage control

          one last think the “Tirpitz” was refitted with torpedo launchers from a Z class destroyer
          and hid by a “Tallboy”

            Its a great suggestion, but oh some much code :)

          • Timo

            Maybe if you have time and think about an add on :-)

            I am not a programer but cant you just take the specific code lines for the upgrate menue from PF adjust it a bit and add them into AF ?

          Any chance of seeing Iowa Class BBs – I believe USS Iowa served for awhile in Atlantic and transported FDR across Atlantic

    I downloaded it on my Nook HD (android) and i can’t even get the game to start. All I get is a black screen and the error message “Atlantic fleet is not responding.”

    I just played a few custom and campaing battles and it is awesome.All game logic/coding was created by one man?It is better than world of warships in its current state.I hope that you will add iowa or north caroline ships.One suggestion – possibility to change distance between enemy and player ships in custom battle before the actual battle start would be nice.Running on Nexus 7 2012 wifi 16GB android 5.1 without any problem.Notification bar tell me that system update to 5.1.1 is downloaded and ready for install but Im scared to install because it can destroy the game functionality.
