Brutal Wars Contest

Brutal Wars GameWant to get the game for free? It is not so difficult. Just achieve one of the highest scores on a special "competition" map - Contest map.

The game is carried out in the single-player mode. It means that you fight against the computer. The task is to destroy the enemy forces and capture all its bases for as few moves as possible. The minimum version for taking part in the competition is 1.44.

The result is evaluated in the table of high scores. After you successfully finish the game, you are given a special code that you have to enter on this page. It will add you to the table of high scores. But before you enter the code, you have to register (either on the same page or on our forum).

Results will be announced on October 15, 2006. By the way, if you do not like your high score, you can easily replay the game and enter the improved high score into the table (this will replace your lower score with the new one).   (Source: Press Release)
