Hey, It’s Free

April 16th, 2008 by Troy Goodfellow · 1 Comment · Matrix, Wargames

Matrix Games has released War Engine into the wilds of the internet as a celebration of tax day. The only reward I need is the security that my money is being well spent on a well-managed war that makes America safer from its enemies. But since that’s not happening, I guess this will have to do.

Features include:

* Highly tactical – watch your tracks, destroy key terrain, find the objectives!
* Seven full games in one
* Individual scenarios as well as linked campaigns
* Move your army from one battle to the next!
* Weapons, terrain and units are all fully configurable
* Use our graphics or your own
* Excellent AI performs well under the wide variety of situations.

Apparently you can make your own armies and units and battlefields. So I guess I’ll have to experiment a little, though I’m much better at telling people when their designs don’t work than I am at coming up with my own.

    They apparently have a number of other titles available for free, including a giant robot strategy game that I’d been eyeing before. I’ll have to try that out.
