Demyansk Pocket 1942

Demyansk Pocket 1942


Conflicts: Demyansk Pocket 1942 is a turn based strategy game set on the Eastern Front during the Second World War.


Historical background: During the attacks of the winter of 1941-1942 the Soviet Red Army managed to encircle 100,000 German soldiers holding the front line in Demyansk, located half-way between Moscow and Leningrad. After receiving reinforcements, Wehrmacht unleashed an offensive from Staraya Russa. The purpose was not to evacuate the encircled units, but to re-open a land connection to the out-of-supply forces in a hope to continue controlling the area in a preparation for the future campaigns. Meanwhile, the encircled units, inadequacy supplied by Luftwaffe, engaged in a cutthroat battle for the life or death. One of the encircled German units was the 3rd SS Division Totenkopf, which earned its elite status in the fierce battles leading the defense of the pocket - a process in which the unit suffered 80% casualties. However, the German victory in Demyansk in 1942 paved way for a horrible German miscalculation a year later, when 300,000 German soldiers were encircled in Stalingrad in 1943, and based on the experiences from the Demyansk the commanders were ordered to wait for the help instead of breaking out.

Game: You take the command of both the encircled units and the fresh divisions attempting to re-establish a land route from Staraya Russa to Demyansk as quickly as possible. To have a chance to seize the top spot in the Hall of Fame you need to skillfully lead units through the Red Army rifle divisions as quickly as possible - and maintain the newly opened route for 9 consecutive turns. All this while fiercely defending the cut-off Demyansk area with poorly supplied Wehrmacht and auxiliary units.

Objective: The game is over after you re-establish a connection between the cities of Staraya Russa and Demyansk - and maintain that connection for 9 consecutive turns.


Settings: Various options are available to alter the look of the gaming experience: Switch between terrain color themes, change difficulty level, choose icon set for units (NATO or REAL) and cities (Round, Shield, or Square), decide what is drawn on the map, change font and hexagon sizes.


In order to be a victorious general, you must learn to coordinate your attacks in two ways. First, as adjacent units give support to an attacking unit, keep your units in groups in order to gain local superiority. Secondly, it is rarely a good idea to use brute force when it is possible to encircle the enemy and cut off its supply lines instead.

Conflict-Series has offered highly rated Android-only strategy games since 2011. The campaigns are based on the time-tested gaming elements you are familiar with from both the classic PC war games and legendary strategy board games. I also want to thank the fans for all the well thought-out suggestions over the years which have allowed campaigns to improve at a much higher rate than what any indie developer could dream of. if you have feedback about any game in the Conflict-Series please use email, this way we can have a constructive back and forth conversion without all the limits of the store's comment system. In addition, because I have huge number of projects available on multiple stores, it’s just not very sensible to spend handful of hours each day going through hundreds of pages spread all over the Internet to see if somebody has posted a question somewhere -- just send me an email and I will answer to it as soon as I'm online. Thanks for understanding!

Great Challenge Another classic WWII battle turned into a game you can carry with you. So many options, it's easy to create your 'dream' campaign. Military basics usually help the player to victory, but this format allows one to try "wonder if" scenarios. You never know what might work. With each play being unique, you get an infinite number of challenges all in one game. You get out of it what you put into it. Great game, thanks!
