IronStorm for Windows PC (Rated M)
The Last Great War Still Rages On...
Western Germany, March 1964
The last Great War continues to rage on. All you have ever known is the madness of the front lines and of men butchering each other. War-torn Europe stands ripped apart by a front line that runs straight through the heart of Germany where American and Western European troops battle against enemy forces. In an eternal war that seems to have no end in sight, opposing forces mercilessly attack each other with unrelenting force, claiming small victories one day only to lose them the next.
As Lieutenant James Anderson you must infiltrate and destroy key enemy positions deep behind enemy lines using your sharpened combat skills and stealth where necessary. If successful, your mission could finally put a stop to the carnage and restore what everybody has long since forgotten about: peace.
Alternative history: between reality and fiction, Iron Storm takes place in an imaginary environment which has been inspired by real events. Iron Storm takes real elements from the First World War; trenches, barbed wire fences, mines, gas warfare, snipersand combines them with more modern elements from the Second World War; automatic weapons, radar, tanks, flame throwers as well as elements inspired by modern warfare; helicopters, lasers, electronics and more.
The Western front line
When you arrive in the trenches, you will be informed of your mission and given a short training session in shooting skills. And then you're off fired on by the enemy, but guided by allied soldiers, you must head for the no man's land separating the two sides.
The Russo-Mongol front line
Having infiltrated the enemy camp, you must now go on alone through their trenches. Your C.O. Ccile Newcastle and Colonel Mitchell will use the information they receive in real time to guide you. Reassuring, eh?

Taking advantage of the civil war between the White Russians and the Bolsheviks, he succeeded in stabilizing the Mongol empire, building a mighty army and seizing power.

He is attached to his troops but is also capable of unparalleled cruelty.
Her career got off to an exemplary start and, at 32, she is a captain in the prestigious Royal Highland Regiment, and is Lieutenant James Anderson's commanding officer.
Respected by her men and with a spotless service record, she is nonetheless uneasy, aware that she is that certain lobbies wish to see the war continue as they are making vast sums of money from it.
