Take the mighty fleets of the Pacific theater of WWII for a spin in this playable demo

Matrix Games and Wastelands Interactive (www.wastelands-interactive.com) are pleased to release a playable demo for their popular new Pacific theater strategy game, Storm over the Pacific. The demo includes the Pacific Campaign with 15 turns and no saves, a variant of the Okinawa Scenario where you cannot increase the size of units, and the Editor. The demo is available from the official downloads section.


Each of the three components of the demo do a solid job of illustrating the fantastic accessibility and replay value found in Storm over the Pacific: the campaign gives gamers the chance to command the enormity of the Pacific theater without bogging them down with too many details, the scenarios offer a quick but engaging strategic puzzle, and the Editor offers gamers a chance to construct their own engagements so there’s nearly limitless replay value!


David Heath, Director of Operations at Matrix Games, said “Storm over the Pacific does a great job of letting gamers enjoy the strategic challenges facing commanders on both sides of the Second World War without too much work. This demo gives gamers just enough of the campaign so that the ‘one more turn’ addiction we all know and love will be in full swing!”


The creators of WW2: Time of Wrath move to the Pacific theater with Storm over the Pacific. Depicting the epic conflict between Japan and the United States, players choose from 26 available countries with historically accurate orders of battle including land, sea and air units and leaders. Concentrate on directing one country or command several to lead an alliance of nations. Engage in battle over the vast expanse of the Pacific with 16 unit types modeled with an intuitive supply system and governed by realistic and historically accurate weather patterns.


Behind the front lines, players can also manage alliances, monitor economic conditions, and research new technologies. With shrewd management of research resources, players may even embark on a dramatic race to develop Atomic weapons and turn the tide of the war! Even the best laid plans may still falter, though, as hundreds of historical events may occur throughout a campaign, adding the element of surprise and unpredictability that is so commonly found in war.


Storm over the Pacific also sports a configurable user interface that allows you to freely arrange the information and orders panes on the screen. With this sort of freedom, commanding armies and managing nations is easier than ever! Create your own intuitive interface suited to your play style so you can concentrate on plotting to defeat your enemies!
