Tropical Stormfront" has now been released on Android, PC, Mac & Linux  Grin
Official Web Site: http://www.operationstormfront.com/

I am using LibGDX and OpenGL ES 2.0 for graphics. LWJGL for the backend on Desktop. I can highly recommend both libgdx & LWJGL  Grin

If you want to try the full version, I can send you a license key for Desura, just ask! I tried to create a webstart version too but it didn't want to work (>50MB). It just borked... Sorry!

Yes, it's actually somewhat similar to Red Alert, however very simplified compared to Red Alert!

Mhh, how about that (using imgur instead):

I am actually planning on getting a webstart version ready in the near future! Still, I have to finish some game-play functionality before it's ready for testing. I'll post more in the future.

Thanks for the efforts. Now I can see it and... yeah really good graphics Cool

it got almost 200fps on your new build pc, I think it'll be kinda friendly to old machine. Hope also put jar.

Do you have an own graphics artist or get images from somewhere?

The goal is to keep it fast enough for Android (+ later iOS), so yes, it should run fast enough on older computers too!

I hired a graphics artist (Nick Lee) for the images. Nick Lee is definitely worth every penny. Highly recommended! Here is his portfolio:

I'm impatient to give it a try, it reminds me Red Alert 2.

I updated the game description - I need volunteers to test it on Android (please read above)  Grin

@gouessej: yes, it's somewhat similar to Red Alert, although the units are different. Given the memory/graphics/processor etc. limitations on Android, I slightly had to scale it down in scope.  Grin

This looks great. The only reason I'm not going to play today is that it will consume the rest of my week. By the way, how do you like publishing on Desura? Is it easy to integrate with their publishing platform?

Publishing the game on Desura worked great! The web site/client are well done in my opinion. There were a few times when I got confused (what's a MCF?) but they guys from Desura helped explaining it all. Uploading all the files took quite some time though. I hope I don't have to go through it again...

Thanks for featuring the game!  Smiley

The game review is correct - the game controls are simply hideous on Desktop. I have spent a lot of time updating the mouse controls/key shortcuts but it's a guess little late after the game has been reviewed. I'll push up an update later this week. I guess I should have done my research ahead of time  Undecided

I added multiplayer too. It's a mistake not adding it no matter if people are actually using it or not. If one of you guys is interested in testing it out, here is some more information:

Take your time, polish out the points criticized and contact the IGM reviewer - maybe you get a review update...

Just wanted to say that this looks nice. I would love to test the Demo but it doesn't install. I used the archive.zip and after five tries of validating something it just gives up and stops.
