Noblemaster Games has just released the game Desert Stormfront, which is a real-time strategy game that was originally inspired by another turn-based game called “Classic Empire” by Walter Bright. Units and structures within Desert Stormfront are supposed to be modeled after a rock-paper-scissors system and the unit movement in the game is in real-time, which you might have seen in some of the first classic “Command & Conquer” games. It’s noticeable that this game is easy to learn but incredibly difficult to get good at, like Command and Conquer.
Desert Stormfront lives up to its name by taking place in today’s Middle Eastern world. The player commands the “Western coalition”, and will also be able to fight battles in real-time. What’s cool about this game is that you’ll be able to take control of both cities and oil fields in countries like Iran, Iraq, Saudia Arabia, and even Afghanistan. Currently, the story in Desert Stormfront is fictional, but could change in the future (but isn’t likely). Desert Stormfront will also have support for multiplayer connectivety, and cross-platform support. With Desert Stormfront being available for a few different platforms, Windows users can play with their friends on the Android platform and likewise.
As this is a real-time strategy game, you will be able to control 1 to 100+ units at a time and use them to coordinate deadly attacks against some of the Middle Eastern countries. The campaign in Desert Stormfront has over 30 different missions which should only take you 10 – 20 hours to finish. Developer Noblemaster has also added a random map generator and a few different skirmish missions to provide the player with additional re-playability and variety.
Desert Stormfront isn’t a title you want to pass up, as it is packed with a lot of good content. Desert Stormfront is currently available on PC, Mac, Android and Linux. If you want to look at the game a bit more, and even consider giving it a try, you can head on over to Noblemaster’s website and check it out.
