Author's Description: You may have noticed that WAR was no longer on development for a long while. But I am currently working on a totally new version of the game, including a new mapeditor. I promise I will release a playable version as soon as possible. However, the "new WAR" won't be really different from the latest available version on download. But still, it will be better and also by far better programmed. Oh, sources will be available too ;)

'War' is a real Dune II clone.
The idea is very simple: Dune II with a C&C interface.

- The DOS and the Windows version.
- A map editor (WarEdit)

  • 10Excellent beginning ! I knew Dune 2 battle for Arrakis and I recognize the style... I understand that coding a C&C program is very difficult that's why i think that this program gets the best mark despite it's not finished. Gameplay is very well thinked.
  • 8Good gameplay, but kinda bad graphics. Pretty fun!
