Ancient magical powers have invaded the world and threaten to wipe out mankind. Murdering hordes of Chaos warriors serving the Forces of Darkness have spread across the planet, annihilating any resistance they encounter.
The formation of the Worldwide Alliance is mankindís last sparkle of hope. These remaining armies prepare themselves for a desperate last strike of resistance as the Dark magic spreads across the land, causing the dead to rise from their graves.
The objective of the game is to get to the top of the hierarchy of command and save the world. The game is split into two levels -- strategic and tactical. In the strategic part, you decide on the most suitable territory for attack, the division of financial resources, the composition and organization of the army, and the direction of research. In the tactical part, the actual battle within each territory takes place. During the battle, you have to allocate a specific number of action points per unit, for moving, attacking, or other special activities.
