_WinWar II_ is a shareware, strategy game based on World War II that can be
played over a local network by sharing a common network file among the
In this game the player(s) take the part of the seven major participants of
the war USA, UK, France, Russia for the Allies and Germany, Italy and Japan
for the Axis powers. The objective is for either side to capture three capital
cities from their opponents. Unusually, at least in the early stages, the USA
is one of the weaker countries producing less armaments per turn than the Axis
forces reflecting the fact that they were not prepared for the war. In each
turn players have so many points to use, these can be spent improving their
production capacity, improving their level of technology, building ships,
factories, planes, troops etc. or moving their forces around and engaging in
warfare. In the standard game only friendly forces are visible but there is an
option to make all forces visible.
The game map is scrollable and covers the whole world so, for example, forces
can be moved off the eastern side of the map to attack the enemy on the west.
