POWER STRIFE is a real time strategy game I created with Epic games' Unreal Development Kit. This version features four single-player missions with different objectives. Things to do in future versions -My first priority is to fix/improve AI behavior. -Add more units, abilities, structures, upgrades. -Improve graphics. -Multiplayer support. -More options in the settings menu.
-How to play
The purpose of the game is to gather resources, construct a base, create more units and research upgrades to engage your enemies in combat and destroy them or complete various mission objectives to emerge victorious.
To produce new units click on one of your structures to select it.Now you should be able to see the production icons at the bottom right corner of your screen.Click on one of them to begin unit production or upgrade research . Unit production requires resources (minerals and energy).
Notice that whenever you click the button to create a new unit the unit cost is reduced from your resources.
To begin construction select a labor drone and click on the available structures icons at the bottom right corner of your screen.If you have enough resources you should see a model of the structure you selected.Move your cursor around and find a valid location(the structure model will be green if the location is valid and red if it's invalid) then click the left mouse button to begin construction.The selected labor drone will now move to that location and start constructing.You can assign more labor drones to the same structure to speed up the process.
You can select your units by left-clicking on them or dragging a box around them. If you wish to select more units without deselecting the ones you have already selected hold shift. To order your selected units to move right click at the desired location (must be valid location). Your units will attack enemy units if they are close enough. Right click on an enemy unit to attack it.
To increase your resources and be able to produce more units you must construct fusion generators to produce energy and use your labor drones to gather minerals from mineral extraction sites.
Use WASD keys or place the cursor to the edge of the screen to pan view. You can also click on the minimap to move the view instantly or hold left mouse button and drag to pan view.
Press Q to toggle between isometric and rotating camera mode.
Use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out or hold shift then click on the minimap and hold left mouse button then move you mouse up/down.
