Allied General is a turn-based strategy game
released for Microsoft Windows. The game bares a strong resemblance to Panzer General
, but with some differences. First of all, in this game you can only play as a general on the allied side of World War II
(American, British or Soviet) against the Axis forces
, however individual scenarios can be played on both sides. There are four playable campaigns in the game: a Soviet campaign, which features the Soviet invasion of Finland, known as the Winter War, the defenses of Moscow, and if successful, the counter-attack; a British campaign in North Africa against the German and Italian armies, beginning in Sidi Barrani; a British campaign, which can be played as the continuation of the first British campaign, which features the final Allied attack
in Tunis on Mareth Line and the invasion of Europe and an American campaign, similar to the second British campaign, that begins with Operation Torch and continues to the invasion of Europe. The gameplay is similar like in Panzer General, you recruit, move units and destroy the opposing force
. Even the small battle animations are used, which is quite good. Overall, Allied General
is a great WWII war simulation game. If you've loved Panzer General, you will definitively love this one as well.
