Real-time strategy game, similar to Warcraft II or Age of Kings in gameplay, but with text-only mission briefings. Features a 20 mission campaign, 3 races (European, Asian, and Arabian) and an extensive tutorial, as well as multiplayer support and a comprehensive mission and campaign editor.


Tzar: The Burden of the Crown Windows There is actually only one map that has a snow on it (in the story, not in skirmish or multiplayer mode), and it's suited in asian parts where you get to control ninjas.
Tzar: The Burden of the Crown Windows All missions and quests are a part of major story, like a chapters to some book, and very skilfully connected. You almost get a feeling you're playing some RPG and not RTS.
