DescriptionCommand & Conquer develops ideas from Westwood's previous game Dune 2, forming a real-time strategy (RTS) game. The control system involves selecting units with the mouse and then directing them, while the opponents make their moves without waiting for a "turn" to end.
The game focuses on a war between two organizations, The Brotherhood of Nod and the Global Defense Initiative. The player can take control of either side for more than 15 missions. Both have different units and structures, including artillery, tanks and light infantry.
In most missions, a base needs to be built first in order to build new units and structures. Most important are the harvesters, which collect Tiberium and deliver it to a refinery, where it's converted into money, thus funding the construction of a base and an army.
The game also features FMV mission briefings and victory cutscenes.
A Windows 95 version was released later and is found here

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
Cover screenshotsObviously, the in-game screenshots on the back cover are faked or taken from a beta version that actually had better graphics than the release version.
German versionWestwood voluntarily changed a few things in the German version, because they feared the game could be indexed.
KaneKane is played by Joseph D. Kucan, the voice & video director for most of Westwood's games (including the Command & Conquer series).
Mega ScoreIt was the first game to be featured on the cover of Mega Score, the longest running Portuguese gaming magazine, on the second issue (November 1995). The honours of the first belong to the Sega Saturn.
ReferencesOpen up the instruction manual to the page right after the table of contents, the one with the fire that has the quote from Kane. The last line says "(Global Net Interpol, file #GEN4:16)". That "#GEN4:16" actually refers to Genesis 4:16 from the Bible. That explains where they got the idea for Kane and the Brotherhood of Nod.
SalesWestwood received an entry in the Guinness Book of Records, because they sold the game more than 10 million times worldwide.
SVGA versionLater Westwood also released an SVGA Windows 95 version, called Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn Gold. The game content itself was unaffected, but when playing against someone with the SVGA version you had a great advantage: you could see almost 4 times as much as the DOS version on one screen.
