Old War Games
« on: January 06, 2010, 11:14:04 pm »
So, I've been looking, without much luck, but I was wondering what kinds of war games (command and conquer or Dune style) are there for older systems that can be emulated on the dingoo.  The only thing I have found is a dune game for the sega, but I can't seem to get the sound to work. :P  Thanks for the help

How about the grandaddy of them all, Herzog Zwei for Genesis/Mega Drive?

Yeah...  I've never heard of it, and to top that off, I can't find it.  If you know where I can locate it, please let me know.  Many thanks

I'd be violating the rules if I told you exactly where to find it, but Google will help. I found and downloaded a copy in under 30 seconds. ;)

Funny, if I read the Thread title, I thought of the old War games from the 80s, like the ones from SSI, took me a while, to realize, that you mean games, that in my perception are close to brand new :) Thanks for reminding me, that I am an old fart ;)

Thanks for the ideas guys.  I have tried civilization and love it.  I will give the other ones a look too.  More suggestions are still helpful. ;D

I thought that at first too, until C&C and Dune were mentioned. Those would be considered RTS (Real-Time Strategy). Civilization however is a turn-based strategy game. SSI's war games were all turn-based I believe.

Not all of these in this list are real-time RTS games, but they do generally have a War or Strategy theme.

Gameboy Advance
Mech Platoon
Advance Wars Series

Gameboy Colour
Warlocked
