Brutal Wars is a game combining two genres: a war game and a turn-based strategy, a spiritual successor to classic Battle Isle. The entire delight of strategic planning, turn-based tactical battles, perfect balance – now all this is in your pocket on a handheld computer with the Windows Mobile operating system!

Near future. Each day the number of terrorist attacks increases and these local problems of separate countries gradually turn into a worldwide threat. Even standing armies of the most developed countries cannot cope with constantly increasing terrorist forces. At a special meeting, world superpowers decide to create an extraordinary international committee that commands special military forces of a new generation.

Take command of the elite antiterrorist unit armed according to the last word in science and technology. The best soldiers in the world will be under your command from now on! And you have a long and difficult way ahead: from being in charge of a detachment to the commander-in-chief of the entire antiterrorist army. Think thoroughly, plan precisely, attack suddenly and hit the target! And remember – fortune favors the brave!

I ran setup, but it didn't ask me for the key. Maybe that's why it only did some (?) of the tutorial and locked up. :( Does anyone know what I can do? Can I run setup again?

I played Empire, but didn't know of Empire Deluxe. I played Empire within the last three years. It runs off a floppy, and at least under W98.

#21 Michelle:

Errors while trying to unzip usually means the file got corrupted while downloading. (Nothing awful ... minor glitches, temporary service interruptions, or busy servers can cause files to be corrupted.)

Delete the file and download again, try downloading from the mirror link.

#15 (aktano) - You can't. Not in the tutorial, anyway. The only way to take over a building is to have troops, which you aren't given on that map.

It's really unfortunate that I had to bump down the resolution to be able to read the text... but anyway.
I've noticed three issues with the game so far:
- THEY ARE PARENTHESES (), NOT BRACKETS [].
- Did you change the resolution? Whoops! Hope you saved...
- The game crashes if you attempt to scroll and empty list in a factory (Completely reproducible. Try it on the tutorial map.).
- The only way to actually "swap out" of the game is to select the Minimize option in their start menu. Windows key? Forget it. Ctrl+esc? Forget it. Alt+tab? Forget it. Can't see any other windows while the game's active unless you use that option.
- Enemy units are ALWAYS shrouded after they've moved, even if you saw them move, and even if they're in your sight!
- What do you mean, I can't run over infantry?
- Completely unrealistic. Imagine this battle: three infantry, three tanks.
... In this game, one infantryman dies, one tank is destroyed.
... what?

While it does seem like an OK game, it's just not good enough for me to keep. Keep trying, Sytexis.

Haven't had a chance to really play it yet, but it looks like a fun 'risk' simulation

I downloaded Brutal Wars but when I try to upzip the file it says Error reading the file and I can not unzip it.

Any clue as to why this is happening?

Would really appreciate any help. Did I do something wrong?

The game is great to play. Finally figured out that I could change the resolution of the screen in options so I could read the fonts.

The game only takes up half my screen. Is that normal, or do I have to set a screen size somewhere?

#8 Betsy Tollet sez: "Why are so many of your games based upon the theme of violence?"

Actually Betsy game.giveawayoftheday.com offers a good mix of games to appeal to a wide range of visitors and although some of the games offered have been violence-based, most have not. As with anything it's always a good idea for parents to review games before allowing children to play. But that responsibility rightly belongs to each child's parents, not to a software site.

Here's a list of recent offerings that do NOT deal with violent themes:

Swap n' Fall
Beeline
Cubozoid
Dinos & Bubbles
Super Cubes
XMas Blox
Jeanne D'Pac
Tiny Cars
Brave Dwarves
Cartoon Xonix
Sky Bubbles
Mahjongg Artifacts
Aqua Digger

I think it's awesome. It's pretty reminiscent of Advance Wars.

Okay, this is probably a stupid problem, but...I gave my computer monitor to my daughter for her afterschool program. So I'm using my 27" tv as a monitor. I installed brutal wars and got the activation keys. But I can't read the typestyle of the game once I open the game, to see where to paste the registration key. This is the first time I have had a problem with reading a font. Can someone tell me how many blocks over and words up, etc. the registry button is?

Also this program installed a recorder program. Is that like Station Ripper that you can use to record music over the internet?

I know it is a silly problem, but first time I have encountered a problem reading the fonts on my TV.

That's single player game, but you can play with others using old style "hot seat" mode:)

The game discription above (GOTD-Site) states it is a "turn based" strategy game. Does that mean it doesn't have a "single-player option" ? - Thanks

Re comment #8 Betsy... Violence is the way our species has advanced. If you look at the whole of life on this planet, it's a question of survival of the fittest. Even plants compete for space; the more aggresive ones surviving. These games are just a natural extension of our in built survival. as the basic needs of a male have been stripped away due to our ability to think and consider and share (joke), these games allow an outlet for males in particular to get rid of the pent up aggresion we naturally build up. Read some texts on anthropology and the evolution of mankind (or woman kind if your that way inclined). We (males) are driven by our hormones just as females are driven to want a child (generalization of course) and nesting. It's a long debate, not for these forums though. Give me more shhoer games as i really enjoy them, just as I throughly enjoyed yesterdays game swapfall, with it's laid back pace and soothing music.

There will never be an end to war, as it's needed to control our ever growing population. Not that i like it; but it's a fact of life that will never go away. Are you willing to give up your life style and swap it for someone living in a poor village on the Steppes of Eastern Europe, or an African village that is 50 miles from any medical treatment and no fresh water. I don't think so. You'd fight to keep what you have. We are the lucky ones. Sorry about the above. i was just trying to put the whole idea of whty we have violence. if possible would you move it to the forums rather than deleting it. I mean no disrespect Betsy

#9, you will get both keys for this program when you run setup.exe, one for mobile version and one for PC version.

Within very much games of the same kind this is a different one. This one is a good one. A kind of risk with much possibilities. So in a scale from 0-10 I give the program 9 points.
But I have a QUESTION too. For installing on a handheld computer: is registering in the deskcomputer software enough? My handheld computer has no Internet connection.

[...] Oferta GiveAwayOfTheDay.com include astăzi ca oferte gratuite programul HDDlife Pro şi jocul Brutal Wars. Pe acesta din urmă nu îl prezint pentru că este pentru Windows Mobile. Programul cred însă că merită atenţie, în special dacă aţi achiziţionat un calculator la mâna a doua sau harddiskul este vechi şi pare a da semne de îmbătrânire. Atunci merită să fiţi prevăzător, pentru a nu păţi ca mai jos… [...]

#2, as for me, it's something similar to Empire Deluxe, if you played this one in CGA monitors/ PC XT era:)

I noticed in the comparison section of their help that there is a version specifically for laptops. For a beginner without any other monitoring of this type, would you recommend running it on a laptop or not? Also, any chance you will offer something similar for those of us with just laptops? Thanks for any help.

Thank you so much, This game looks really great. I used to play a lot of the old board games with the hexagonal pieces when I was a youth. This'll bring back memories. No doubt it'll be much better. My boy will like this game as well.
