There were many real world ramifications from World War II, but one of the more relevant to our coverage on Android Police is that it gave developers material for no fewer than a zillion games. HandyGames saw success with its last WWII title, 1941 Frozen Front, and now the sequel known as 1942 Pacific Front is available for download. It's essentially the same thing but with less snow.

As you can probably gather from the name, this game takes place in the Pacific theater of WWII. There are some new unit types and gameplay experiences based around ship-to-ship combat, but the overall gameplay mechanics look familiar. It's still a turn-based strategy with a single-player mode and online or pass-and-play multiplayer.

And about that free-to-play business—it looks like there's only one currency (gold), but you can buy large caches of it with real money. There is also a persistent ad at the top of the screen that you can pay $1.99 to remove permanently. It doesn't seem too bad, but you'll probably spend a few bucks playing.
