Description

This game is made in the same style as the Battleground series from the same developer. Its 22 scenarios are about the four militant conflicts between the Israelis and Arabian states between 1948 and 1973. As usual the scenarios cover both conflict parties and aren't linked together, but divided into campaigns the player may choose to play.

The game is hex-based and turn-based. This means the player spends most of his time on the isometric map and statistics screens. Through various menus he gives commands to his units. One round represents about six minutes. Most missions are about defending or conquering a certain place. Another thing that is not represent in all such games is the need to hold supply lines.
