Drone Wars Walkthrough

Drone Wars is a real-time strategy game in the style of StarCraft or Command and Conquer. This war game features crisp graphics, three gameplay modes, and eight challenging missions.

Drone Wars features three gameplay modes: Arcade Mode, which is the primary campaign of eight missions, Survival Mode, where your objective is to protect your mothership from enemy drones for as long as possible, and Skirmish Mode where you can play in a single battle against up to three computer-controlled opponents. For the sake of this description, we will primarily be focusing on Arcade Mode. Each mission in Arcade Mode has its own objectives. The first few missions serve as a tutorial and do not place you in combat with the enemy. Your progress is saved at the end of each mission, so you can continue your campaign the next time that you play this war game.

If you are familiar with the control schemes of most modern RTS games, then the controls of Drone Wars will be easy for you to figure out. Select units by clicking them or select multiple units by clicking and dragging a box around them. Right-clicking is not employed in this war game (since right-clicking opens the context menu in Flash Player), so you must left click to order units to move or attack. You can click on icons at the bottom of the interface to execute unit-specific orders such as repairs. See the in-game instructions for additional help and a list of keyboard shortcuts.

You start each battle of Drone Wars with limited funds, so the first thing that you will want to do is build a squadron of resource collectors. I advise waiting until you have at least three resource collectors bringing in a steady supply of ore before you start building combat units or scouts. Repair drones can also help you to save money in this war game. It is much cheaper and quicker to repair damaged units than it is to build replacements!

Drone Wars is a war game that is reminiscent of a 2D version of Homeworld. The only complain that can be raised is its extremely short campaign, and possibly, the lack of a multiplayer mode!
