Who doesn’t enjoy an unlimited supply of war soldiers to kill and defeat the enemy?
Warfare 1944 is the game for you if you like to command such armies. It is the second game in the Warfare series, and is developed by Con Artist Games and published by Armor Games. It is a strategy game made in Adobe Flash, and is a sequel to Warfare 1917. The game is set during Operation Overlord, the invasion of Normandy, during the Second World War. The player can choose to play as either the invading US Forces or the defending Wehrmacht.
Player decisions play a very important role in Warfare 1944. Since it is a strategy game, not only your victory, but also your game points depends on the game.
U.S or Wehrmacht?
The very beginning of the game will thrust a choice upon you. You will need to choose between the U.S and the Wehrmacht.
Keep in mind that the U.S campaign is a fair bit tougher than the German campaign in the beginning. Eventually, however, because you will get used to the tough U.S campaign, the end will be much easier to handle. The exact opposite happens in the German Campaign, the levels become progressively difficult; hence you will find it much more difficult to cope. I would recommend choosing the U.S campaign because as the game progresses, you will be able to retain soldiers better.
How to deploy soldiers
After the rookie introduction video, you will begin your missions. Remember, all the power is held by your mouse and your mind. There are two sections on the screen which will help you to build your strategy, the “Deploy Bar” and the “Deployment Zone” the first level requires a “Bazooka” barrage more that the “Riflemen” and the “Assault” team. As the game progresses, you can take note of your setting and decide which set of soldiers will help you attain victory and how to place them in the deployment zone to achieve maximum output with minimal losses. The more you progress, the more soldier categories will be included in the deployment bar.
Riflemen: this team has 4 men in their squad. They own grenades and bolt-action rifles. They can prove to be effective when you deploy them against another infantry.
MG34 Team: Team of 2 men. They are equipped with machine gun and bolt-action rifle. They can be used effectively while they are in cover.
Sturmtruppen: team featuring 4 men having sub-machine gun and rifles. They also own smoke and grenades. They can fight against a team who are in cover.
Bazooka: Team of 2 men, having rocket launcher and rifle. They can work well against armor but can be vulnerable when they face return fire.
Sniper: team consisting 1 man. Sharp shooting skill and accuracy is the key. Can be used against the enemy at a distance.
Mortar: team of 1 army. Can fire on the enemy using the mortar but can be vulnerable if the enemy reaches him.
Tank: A tank is equipped with machine gun of 7.92mm caliber and main gun of 50mm caliber. Can be used against any kind of attack but it is vulnerable to fire. It can cause machine gun, engine or the main gun to shut down and as a result the tank will be damaged and will lose its effectiveness.
Eventually, your deployment settings will be saved in the menu for easier access. As you gain more points in the game you will also be able to receive upgrades like better health, armor, heavy hits and much more. Do not dismiss the upgrades because the latter part of the game will require these upgrades for victory.
In my opinion, the most effective strategy to win warfare 1944 is to learn how to flank effectively. Flanking is basically attacking the enemies from the sides instead of launching at them head on. It is very important to figure out when to flank and when to launch. I would also recommend using Riflemen as well as Bazooka soldiers to flank, Assault teams are amazing for a head- on attack. I will also recommend sustaining your best soldiers till you reach the barricades, once you reach the barricades, it is only a matter of time before the enemy soldiers incur casualty and lose morale. Another important focal point are the tanks, tanks inflict heavy damage, ensure that you are careful with soldier deployment when tanks are in the battlefield because tanks obliterate everything in their way.
Warfare 1944 is fairly simple in style, yet it is very engaging and addictive. Eight really amazing missions await you if you decide to play this online game.
