Description

Desert Stormfront is a retro real-time strategy (RTS) game situated in the Middle East. The game is inspired by the "Classic Empire" game and designed towards casual players. Units at your disposal include Humvees, Tanks, Artillery, Mechanics, Helicopters, Planes, Ships and Submarines amongst others. Desert Stormfront supports multiplayer games over LAN and internet including co-op multiplayer.

History

Like its predecessor "Tropical Stormfront" (released on Dec. 20, 2011), Desert Stormfront is inspired by the turn-based "Classic Empire" game by Walter Bright. Units and structures were modeled after the original following a rock-paper-scissors system for attack and defense. Unit movement was chosen to be real-time similar to the classic "Command & Conquer" but following a more simplified approach for casual players/enabling the game to run also on mobile devices with touch screens.

Features

  • Real-Time Strategy (RTS) in the Middle East.
  • Single player and cross-platform multiplayer (over the LAN and Internet).
  • Team-Play (Single Player and Multiplayer).
  • Mission Types: Attack, Defense, Capture the Flag, Convoy Missions.
  • Nations: USA, England, France, Italy, Iraq, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Egypt, Rebels.
