About Crimson Fields

The outcome of the war lies in your hands. You decide which units are sent to the front lines, and when to unleash the reserves. Your mission objectives range from defending strategically vital locations to simply destroying all enemy forces in the area. Protect supply convoys or raid enemy facilities to uncover technological secrets or fill your storage bays so you can repair damaged units or build new ones in your own factories. Lead your troops to victory!

Tools are available to create custom maps and campaigns. You can also play the original Battle Isle maps if you have a copy of the game.

You can pit yourself against another human player either in hot-seat mode in front of the same machine or against the computer.
