1941: Frozen Front 1941: Frozen Front is a turn-based strategy game shown through a top-down perspective. The gameplay is identical to 1805: French Empire but this game is set during World War II with relevant units and terrain. The singleplayer mode consists of a campaign with eight consecutive missions. Enemies need to be taken out, specific units need to be escorted, villages are captured and messengers are ambushed. The player and the computer opponent take turns with actions on the battlefield.

The army consists of tanks, transporters and infantry. The opponent has tanks, jeeps and antitank units. Each phase, units can be moved and they attack when an opponent is in range. The outcome is determined by the unit type and the terrain. Rushing tactics do not work, the moves need to be planned and the terrain can be put to an advantage, for instance by attacking from a height. Slower units such as infantry can board a transporter to move around more quickly. Many missions start with scattered units on different sides of the map. There is no building or resource management involved, all missions need to be completed with the units available at the start.

The units' health is shown through coloured bars, along with the amount of hexagons they can move. Navigate can also be done through a mini-map in the top right corner. The missions are introduced through a short briefing and after each round a statistics screen is shown. Two players can battle on a single device in the multiplayer hothand mode. There are four scenarios on larger maps available and all types of units are available right away in this mode. [source:mobygames]
