Elite Agents by Trieva

Blizzard recently spotlighted EliteAgents by Trieva ...


In Elite Agents you take control of a squad of three marines and attempt to outmaneuver and outthink your opponent, taking out his troops and capturing map objectives. You decide what kind of composition you deploy with, from the beefy ‘heavy’ class to the versatile ‘scout’. Game creator Trevor ‘Trieve’ Quach gives players with different playstyles the tools they need to dispatch their opponent as they see fit. If you like the idea of blasting apart several marines in one shot, the rocket launcher is the way to go. If you prefer finesse in your combat, flash grenades will be your tool of choice, disabling and blinding your enemy.

The goal of the game is to earn points by eliminating marines, capturing the flag, and holding the hill. You can only move one marine at a time and each marine can only take a limited number of actions per turn. Moving, attacking, switching weapons - everything deducts from your total action value, so planning ahead is a must for you squad to be the most effective.

Earth 2150 by Zealkg

This project is a tribute to the old Earth 2150 RTS game, made in 2000. Gameplay is separated into two different venues, one is the strategic map, which is more risk like, where you have access to a global world map with upgradeable bases that can be attacked and conquered. The other side of the game is the battle map, which you enter when you attack another players base.
