is set in the 23th century where two parties rival about power: Europe and the United Nations (UN). The Europeans want to stop the expensive UN space program with their new super weapon Odin. The player takes the role of a UN commander and has to prevent this plan.
This game follows the usual real-time strategy formula but offers three unique features: There is no base building which means the player has to conquer the existing buildings on the map. Secondly there is only one resource (money) which gets consumed by using said buildings, e.g. reserve stations to fuel tanks or replenish ammo and factories to produce new units. The last new feature is the possibility to design new vehicles with individual weapon systems.
The 3D graphics feature real line of sight which means a vehicle standing on a hill can see further than a vehicle in a valley. Akte Europa
also utilizes the "Fog of War" known from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness
: after revealing a part of the map the player can only see the enemy's movements if one of his units is in visual range.
