Until May 16th World Supremacy is on sale for only $24.95! Now is the perfect time to get into this fast paced, beer and pretzels style game of global warfare.
In World Supremacy one to eight players battle for control of a randomly generated world (users can also generate their own maps, along with the ability to mod many aspects of the game). Using contemporary engines of war, such as jet fighters, fast attack submarines, helicopters, and more, players attempt to conquer neutral and enemy controlled regions. Each region provides more coin for your war machine, which does not run on blood and sweat alone. A simplified research tree allows a variety of strategies without complicating the game. Chrome such as nuclear weapons adds to the possibilities.
Overall gameplay is reminiscent of such board games as the classic Axis and Allies franchise. World Supremacy is easy to pick up, does not take long to play, and features enough variations out of the box that it can provide an endless experience.
World Supremacy is available for Windows as a download only.
