Description

Folvos is the least developed planet in the system, and as it is covered mostly with deserts, the majority of the population lives in the northern areas. But some are forced to live in the deserts, threatened by gunmen and smugglers. One day a group of Vasgalan scientists discover a new material called "Refunium" - which is a new powerful energy source. The Vasgalan Empire that controls the rest of the five planets in the system, now comes into play - claiming the material for themselves and taking control of Folvos. Without much resistance they land their army on the planet and start to rule it. But deep inside the desert, a great rebel army is forming and war is inevitable...

War on Folvos is a turn-based hexagon strategy game like Panzer General. After the tutorial, the player has to pick a side and then fight through ten missions either for the freedom of Folvos, or to destroy the rebels. There are twenty different types of military units ranging from infantry over tanks to planes. Every unit can make two actions per round, such as moving or shooting. The 3D battlefield is covered in hexagon fields. Each unit has a limited movement and shooting range and since no more than one unit can be on one field, strategy is required to decide where to move and what to attack.

Since the game is made mainly more for beginners of the genre, the soldiers do not acquire experience points and new troops cannot be recruited. Instead there are several side missions inside a scenario. One side mission for instance requires the player to protect a base for twelve rounds. After successfully completing it, the much needed reinforcements arrive.
