M.A.X. is a simultaneous or turn-based strategy game. You're in charge of gathering resources and building or upgrading your units and your base. You will have to keep your units armed and their fuel tanks full if you're going to best your enemies in combat.
M.A.X. is going to require actual strategy. You're not going to be able to out-build your opponents into defeat. You're going to have to outmaneuver them, flank them, and tear down their defenses to out-wit them if you want to be victorious.
Strategic Warfare to the MAX!
Your mission: colonize new worlds on distant planets. As the Mission Commander, you and the Mechanized Assault and Exploration (M.A.X.) Force you lead are the first ones in. Mining stations, power plants, tactical combat vehicle factories, habitats -- it's up to you to plan and construct them.
The entire new colony? You create it. The resources you find there? Control them. Enemies? Crush 'em! And there will be enemies. You're not the only Mission Commander trying to colonize the planets. You'll have to push yourself to the limit to survive the ultimate showdown in strategic warfare.
It's espionage, heavy artillery, offensives, counter offensives and intelligence -- all with maximum consequences.
Choose from eight factions and build over 50 land, sea and air units. Up to four human or computer opponents can wage war over a network or head-to-head via modem.
M.A.X. II picks up where M.A.X. left off. A new alien invader has appeared. You're going to have use all your new units and gather the factions if you're going to triumph over the alien menace.
M.A.X. II adds a full-blown real time option to go with the simultaneous and turn-based modes. To assist, you can drop a camera at any location on the map to get simultaneous views of the battlefield.
