Command & Conquer: Red Alert – October 1996

Main Article: Command & Conquer: Red Alert

Someone helps Albert Einstein alter history by killing Adolf Hitler, and someone plants the idea to invade Europe into Joseph Stalin's head. Instead of preventing World War II they simply change it as Russia invades Europe. Spies lurk, land mines wait, and strange new technologies aid both sides in their struggle for ultimate control. Many new technologies are used by Russia and the Allies including Tesla, the Chronosphere's teleport, Iron Curtain's invulnerability and the Gap Generator's satellite surveillance blocking system. Ore, the most abundant and valuable resource on the planet, is the primary resource that funds the military might of the Soviets & Allies.

The War over land and the resources it brings has gotten deadly in this alternate universe as the Soviet Union deploys Mammoth Tanks & Tesla Coils to crush the allies. Not only does the war rage on land, but also in the air and on the oceans. The allies deploy devastating Destroyers & Cruisers while the soviets deploy Submarines to counter the allies' massive navy. In the air the Allies deploy deadly Apache Helicopters while the Soviets deploy Yak & MiG aircraft and helicopters of their own. It's up to the player to decide who will win Soviet Union or the Allied Forces. Command & Conquer Red Alert gives you the opportunity to be more devious, cunning and ruthless than ever before. Easy to play and highly addictive, Command & Conquer Red Alert puts the fate of the world in your hands .
