Lead the British or German army through the trenches of Europe in this First World War strategy game.

Use infantry, armor and fire support to take control of the ground or bombard your foes into submission.

War is hell

Very original. Captures the senselessness and slaughter of WWI beautifully. As a fan of the old Close Combat PC games, this is the closest I've seen a flash come. Well done!

Con-Artists responds:

Heck yeah! Close Combat 2 was one of my favourite games growing up. The next few in the series should keep you happy too.

First rate strategy

Another great effort from Con-Artists. The gameplay is pretty simple, but it's surprisingly fast moving which takes some getting used to. People looking for a realistic wargame should look elsewhere, but otherwise this is outstanding. I love the WWI setting, and the game uses it to provide a surprisingly original experience.

All told, I really enjoyed this game.

Curiouser and Curiouser

I really liked this. For one thing, I never saw a First World War game before - and I was looking out for one. For another, the REASON I don't think I ever saw one before is that the First World War was essentially one-dimensional - you were either going forward or being driven back, in and out of the trenches. You captured this aspect perfectly.

In an additional note, I liked the fact that the newspaper at the end said things like "Going to War Justified?" and "War Drives Up Price of Horse Feed." You've got a weird sense of humor.
