Get in there, soldier! With the advancements in technology and lust for territorial gains, six powerful nations have locked forces in a ferocious war. Ranging from German, Japanese and Russian forces to the British, French, and American armies, players must guide their troops to victory by any means necessary. There is one thing, though — these armies consist of power hungry hogs dressed in sophisticated uniforms.
Infogrames North America Inc.'s Hogs of War is a turn-based strategy game in which players battle rival nations, bloodthirsty pigs, and a speedy clock. Using an army of three to six pigs in any given confrontation, battles are conducted throughout vast 3D territories with plenty of room for exploration and nooks and crannies in which to hide and set up devastating ambushes.
Because the clock is constantly breathing down your neck, you'll need to think of strategies on the fly and make quick and decisive decisions. Are you going to move in and kick some swine butt or play it defensively? Time's up! There is little room for hesitation. As the general, you'll supply your hogs with powerful weapons and useful tools including ripple bombs, accurate sniper rifles, and jetpacks that breathe new life into the age-old adages about 'when pigs fly.'
If you're unable to make your decisions within the allotted time period, you will have left your troops in danger. Once the clock reaches zero, it turns the action over to the opposing force who will then exploit your inability to think quickly. Play smart and try and setup strategies that will leave the opposition in dire straits.
In addition to the various single and multiplayer campaigns, Hogs of War features an exclusive Level Generator that allows players to create and manipulate an endless supply of map territories. There's also a Training scenario that familiarizes players with the turn-based action, flow of gameplay, and controls.
