DEFCON, a stunning multiplayer simulation of global thermonuclear war. Take on the role of a General hidden deep within an Underground bunker. Compete against the computer or online against your friends for total world domination. Start by launching battleships, subs and bombers in order to decimate your opponents defences. Scramble together your alliances but remember only one can stand victorious. Prepare your pre-emptive strike before one of your supposed allies gets the same idea. Choose the perfect moment to obliterate your opponents with an apocalyptic thermonuclear barrage, but get it wrong, and their devastating counter attack will bring you to your knees! Its Global Thermonuclear War, and nobody wins. But maybe - just maybe - you can lose the least.

Well-made game, brings back memories...
Nice graphics, easy enough to learn and the AI is a worthy challenge.
"Global Thermonuclear War" reimagined and revamped.

A great game for fans of "WarGames".

The one and only Global Thermonuclear War game. It is done with retro style and firstly you place your naval units, radars, airports and nuclear silos / defenses. Defcon starts from 5 and drops little by little to 1 and then it is time for Nuclear strikes!

It is mesmerizing to see nukes fly slowly and show trail behind them around the world. When nukes hit it really shows up and reports casulties in millions. If you want an easy to pick up "rts" this is top of its class, it has no direct competitors and some like the graphics and some dont. Check videos before making your desision.

Great multiplayer game, tense and slow paced which makes it thoughtful.

Got bored. Still I think it is a good multiplayer game. Maybe just not for me.

A game that will end in total oblivion. If it doesn't, you are not playing it right. Can also be seen as a "Fallout"-prequel.
Just joking. Or not.
