Inside Mac Games Previews DEFCON
1:43 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a hands-on preview of DEFCON, the upcoming global thermonuclear war game created by Introversion Software and brought to the Mac by Ambrosia Software.

Here's a clip from the preview:

The gameplay for DEFCON is an interesting mix of Risk, Axis and Allies, and Command and Conquer. Battle happens on a global scale, with little micro-management of individual units, and no resource gathering. Anything less than a nuclear warhead is meant as defense or diversionary tactics. Move your fleet of battleships closer to your enemy’s territory in order to use your radar to locate their ICBM launch sites and airfields. Send your fighter jets over your opponent’s positions to scout out their units. But, you won’t win the game with anything less than massive nuclear strikes, resulting in massive casualties, referred to in-game as megadeaths. This is where your points come from. The more death you cause, the more your points at the end of the game.
To check out the full preview, including QuickTime movies of the game, follow the link below.
