World Supremacy on sale for $24.95. From the developer behind the best selling Space Empires series comes World Supremacy, the game of modern world domination. Part Axis and Allies, part Superpowers, and all amazing, World Supremacy allows up to eight players to battle for control of a randomly created world using contemporary weapons of war. Take the fight to your opponents using armor, helicopters, attack submarines, nuclear bombs, and more. A simple research tree and basic economic model add to your strategies. With player controlled starting variables, map randomization, and full modding capabilities, World Supremacy offers quite a bang for the buck.

Air Command 3.0 on sale for only $29.95. Try your hand out at a completely different kind of strategy game. In Air Command 3.0 players take on the role of air traffic controllers at various airports (expandable to an additional 34 airports by purchasing the expansion pack), directing air traffic and doing your best to avoid mayhem. Scenarios are playable in minutes and feature plenty of realism, from true-to-life doppler precipitation patterns to jumbled communications. An editor is included allowing airports from small town sized to international hubs to be created. This may not be your usual strategy game, but it’s as addictive as tank warfare or anything the realms of fantasy has to offer.

Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa on sale for $21.95. Create a character, light your lantern, and head down into the dungeon to defeat the Medusa in this Rogue-like action RPG. Eighty levels of randomly generated dungeons, dozens of critters bent on your demise, scores of items to loot, and twenty levels of character experience make this a very hefty dungeoncrawl. Not only is it a dungeoncrawl, it’s a complete dungeoncrawl toolkit. Using nothing but general Windows applications Scallywag can be completely modded, from the simple such as changing a monster’s stat to total conversions. Experience the best of two worlds today!

Before you consider purchasing any game from Shrapnel,....especially Word Supremacy....you may want to do some research on how support is handled here.

Please read this forum thread in the World Supremacy section to see exactly how Shrapnel and the developer of World Supremacy deal, or more correctly, lie and then ignore, the customers who bought a game, realized it had some serious problems, and tried to get shrapnel and the games developer developer to fix the game.
