War Wind is a classic real time strategy game in a medieval fantasy setting. The game copies both, graphics and interface, from its successful model, Warcraft 2.

The ancient alien world of Yavaun teeters on the brink of anarchy. Four diverse races, the Tha'Roon, Obblinox, Eaggra and the Shama'Li are fighting for dominance on the planet.

Despite many objects taken directly from the model, War Wind also introduces many new elements to the genre like the carry-over of your units from scenario to scenario and advanced combat movements like stealth modes and bio enhancements.

You can either play one of the 28 pre-designed scenarios of the game's campaign, play a multiplayer game or create new scenarios with the included level editor.
