Play OverviewPlay Overview

Warpips (2022) is a quick-to-learn strategy war game where you deploy units to beat enemies in a surprisingly deep tug-of-war battle. You work to pick the right mix of soldiers, tanks, helicopters and planes to beat the enemy forces. Unlike other war games that are embroiled in the actual fighting, Warpips lets you focus on the big picture.

Warpips is combination of tower defence and real time strategy. Once you've set loose your forces you watch the physics-based combat unfold in front of you. This turns the focus from reactions or detailed strategy to picking the right tool for the job.

The result is a game that's really quick to pick up, but hard to master. As you learn the different unit synergies and strategic combinations you discover new ways to take on each scenario. As a first step into a strategic wargame it's a great option. But also for the hardened strategy veteran there's plenty to appreciate.
