I could be mistaken, but I think someone might have made a game set in World War 2 at some point. Still, it's best to judge a game on its individual merits, and HandyGames has a lot of experience making games. 1941 Frozen Front is a turn-based strategy game that follows the rough outline of the famous Winter Campaign during WWII. You can play as the Soviets, seeking to repel the German invasion, or as the Germans as they battle toward Moscow.

This is a top down experience that plays a lot like a board game. Each piece can move a certain number of spaces each turn and attack once. Some have special abilities that can be deployed as well. You need to plan ahead to position your forces smartly if you're going to win.

The game has fairly nice graphics for a top-down strategy game, and the unit models are reportedly historically accurate. The game is free to download, but there's a giant ad at the top all the time unless you pay $2.22 to get rid of it. Alternatively, download and run one of the featured titles linked by the game to remove ads. That's not a bad deal.

    Sorry for going a bit off topic guys but this game reminded me of something
    I have been on a quest for so long now for a "real" strategy game
    I searched and tried many games trying to find a game like Red Alert or the likes of it
    Is there anything remotely available on android?
    I had enough with Turn based strategies or "wait an hour to build a tank or build it instantly for 0.99$ worth of gold/jewels/oil or whatever"

      I can't think of any, but why don't you actually play Red Alert using dosbox? I have tested the game on dosbox turbo and it runs quite nicely (the dos version that is).
