DescriptionCodename: Panzers - Phase One
is a tactical real-time strategy game which takes place during World War II. The game offers three campaigns (German, Soviet, and Allied) with a total of 30 missions.
Since this is a tactical game, the player does not need to bother with resource management. A campaign is started with a predefined number of troops. More troops can be acquired through investing Prestige Points, which are handed out for completing mission objectives (primary, secondary or hidden ones). Units that are killed during a mission will be replaced in the next mission when playing on easy or normal difficulty, but no so on hard.
Ammo is not unlimited, but there are ammo trucks for limited reloading. Repair vehicles also have a limited amount of hit points they can repair.
In total, the player controls over 50 different unit. Besides the tanks and infantry units, there are medics, ammo trucks and repair vehicles. It's also possible to call for scouts, fighters, and bombers, but each mission has an air unit limit.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
In the German version a matchbox with the words "Make it Hot for Hitler" on the mission briefings and all references to Poland were removed.
The game has been a subject of scandal in Poland. It has been accused by certain newspapers of antipolonism, and it was claimed to contain scenes depicting Polish people as drunkards, and false claims that Poland has started the war. Those accusations were wildly exaggerated, but the game has underwent some minor censorship in its Polish release.
