Monster Mash? Combat Mission: Red Thunder Demo Out

Tanks for the hilarious pun, you wit you.

You’ve read Tim Stone’s battle reports from Combat Mission: Red Thunder. You’ve studied his strategies, his tactics, his strengths, weaknesses, personality, most-played songs, favourite biscuit, childhood pets, sleeping habits, teenage LiveJournal, and the contents of his bins. You’re ready for this. You can do this, we all know you can. The demo is out for Red Thunder and by Jove, you’ll out-war that ruddy Tim Stone.

The demo offers two scenarios from the full game’s twenty-odd, Tankovyi Desant and Monster Mash. Unfortunately you can’t directly compare yourself to Tim as, for reasons I’ll never understand, he played a different mission. I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t head straight for Monster Mash. It has multiplayer too, with good old play-by-e-mail if you want the real ye olde turn-based tactical experience.

For dreamers, the demo has Red Thunder’s editor. Your creations will be fleeting, ephemeral, as load and saving are disabled, but oh what visions you’ll have!

Red Thunder is out now. If all these words are just words, words, words, here, a video:
