Alpha Wars is a realtime strategy game that’s free-to-play and browser-based. As a military commander, you must gather resources, build your base, and fight against those vying for territory. Players will battle each other in real time, as resources are scarce, and the struggle to build your industry is the only thing that matters.
From meager beginnings, players must explore the land and collect as many raw materials as they can. You’ll have to move quickly to build your base, as the enemy’s forces could soon be on their way. Whether you expend your precious resources on fortifying your base or building new units is up to you, but you’ll have to strike a very precise balance.
There are many different units you can build in Alpha Wars, and many are specialized for specific purposes. For example, some are meant to cause devastating damage against enemy bases, while others excel at unit-to-unit combat. Again, you’ll have to choose how you balance your army for maximum effect.
Using the Battle Box system, players will be able to see detailed information about the game, their army, and the map. Aspects such as your location, the location of titanium deposits, and other points of interest can be viewed.
Alpha Wars uses several systems to determine how well you’re progressing. For example, the strength of the economy you build will play an important role, as does that of your military strength. Another determining factor is the strength of your base. You’ll have to fortify it as you go; otherwise you’ll be vulnerable to attack.
No matter how many units you have and how strong your base is, you must still anticipate and outmaneuver the enemy. Whether you form allegiances with other players or wipe them out of existence, you’ll have to be wary of their presence. Alpha Wars will test your strategic prowess as you progress through the game.
Fans of realtime strategy games are sure to enjoy this browser-based offering, particularly if you like competing against other players.
