Game description

The original game to begin the legendary series of the Warcraft universe, offers a fantasy-world take on the real-time strategy (RTS) formula established by Westwood Studios' Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty. Wage war as either noble humans or savage orcs, using brute force, cunning and devastating magic.

Each side's campaign lasts over twelve missions of increasing difficulty, with sample scenarios available in the playable demo version. The shareware version, distributed by FormGen, also includes an extra level for each side taking place in underground caverns.
