Freecraft is an open source 2D real-time top-down strategy game and a clone of Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. The engine allows users to import Warcraft II files. The basic gameplay is almost identical to the game that provided the inspiration. The player controls one of two armies (Alliance and Mythical - based on humans and orcs), collects resources (like gold and wood from mines and forests) with peasants, builds farms and other buildings, and produces military units to conquer enemies. The game has its own set of maps and new graphics. The project was eventually halted in 2003 after a cease and desist letter from Blizzard Entertainment and the project continued in two new forms as Stratagus and Wargus in 2004.
