It’s been a while since we got a modern strategy game on iOS, so I’m sure wargamers will be glad to know that Slitherine’s Carrier Deck is on its way to the iOS ports and is looking for beta testers to help with the development. Carrier Deck puts you in charge of USS Ronald Reagan, the Nimitz-class nuclear powered supercarrier. In this fast-paced time management game, you play as the Air Officer during war time and are responsible for all the operations involving aircraft on the ship. Therefore, you’ll have to be working fast and accurately to ensure your carrier is as effective as possible.
You’ll have to load the right planes and helicopters at the right time, manage both launching and landing them, avoiding crashing them into the sea or on the deck, and much more. You can even launch special forces operations. The game will let you mess around with F18 Hornets and Super Hornets, Chinooks, and S3 Vikings both in campaign mode and skirmish mode. If you want to participate in the beta, fly over here.
