20 Games Like Steel Panthers(TBA)
Chess was written in March, 1980 and converted to IBM PC in December, 1981. This is probably the very first chess game running in MS-DOS.
Taking it's age into account, it's no surprise that the game features only text-mode graphics. The chess board and the pieces are drawn using ASCII characters. For the same reason, it's also no surprise that the user input is based just on keyboard commands.
In Chess there is no multiplayer mode - you play only against the computer. As usual, in this kind of game, you can select the A.I.'s skill level. The game offers 24 difficulty levels.
Heroes of Might and Magic III: Horn of the Abyss also known as HotA is a fan-made full scale add-on for Heroes of Might and Magic III, designed to continue the classical Heroes 3 add-on series of RoE/AB/SoD.
The aim of the project is to create an add-on for Heroes of Might and Magic III: The Shadow of Death with lots of new features. The main focus of add-on is the quality of every single aspect of the modded game. This includes the careful fixes of the original game balance, removal of the graphical imperfections left by the developer, and of course, a huge amount of new content, like new campaigns, new map objects and even a new playable faction - The Cove. The project pretends to be fully lore-wise and keeps connection with the original Might and Magic universe.
Tension has spread throughout the Dominion as Emperor Valerian struggles to address a resurgence in zerg attacks. Civilian fears have led to the formation of the Defenders of Man, a group claiming to preserve the safety of humanity. Meanwhile, a number of Dominion Ghosts—highly-trained psionic assassins—have gone missing, and Nova Terra, the deadliest Ghost of all, is among them.
Nova Covert Ops is a new single-player campaign that’ll take you inside the web of intrigue surrounding StarCraft’s enigmatic—and feared—shadow operatives.
In nine action-strategy missions spanning three mission packs, you’ll play as Nova Terra, the Dominion’s most powerful Ghost, and undertake assignments that are as dangerous as they are vital to the survival of the Dominion: infiltrating enemy bases, intercepting planetary invasions, helming experimental stealth ships, and other top-secret operations.
The first football management simulator, many of the hallmarks of the incredibly complex games which exist in this genre today are found in embryonic form here. Club finances, player transfers, basic tactics, and perhaps most importantly of all, excellent white noise crowd sounds when your team scored.
Transport Tycoon Deluxe was released in 1995, and featured new varieties of landscape and weather, new scenarios, more vehicles and allowed the player to run their company all the way from the year 1950 up to the year 2050.
Transport Tycoon presents you with a vast game world made up of numerous small towns and raw material resources. You’ve got a large amount of borrowed money and you’ve got to prove yourself; to set the wheels in motion to become The Transport Tycoon.
Matched against a batch of ruthless rivals, you’ll have to act quickly; to build the key routes that will rake in the cash. Build stations, airports, docks and a linking road, rail, air and ship network that will move passengers, mail or goods to the most lucrative destination. As the years roll by you’ll have the chance to buy more advanced and faster vehicles and vessels; if you can afford them!
The Deluxe version brings the several improvements over the standard edition.

Ingress is an augmented reality massively multiplayer online role playing GPS-dependent game created by Niantic Labs, a startup within Google, originally for Android devices, and since July 14, 2014 for Apple's iOS. The game has a complex science fiction back story with a continuous open narrative.
The gameplay consists of establishing "portals" at places of public art, landmarks, monuments, etc., and linking them to create virtual triangular fields over geographic areas. Progress in the game is measured by the number of "mind units" (MUs), i.e. people nominally controlled by each faction (as illustrated on the Intel Map). The necessary links between portals may range from feet/meters to miles/kilometers or hundreds of miles/kilometers in operations of considerable logistical complexity. International links and fields are not uncommon, as Ingress has attracted an enthusiastic following in cities worldwide amongst both young and old, to the extent that the gameplay is itself a lifestyle for some, including tattoos.

Warcraft II: Beyond the Dark Portal is an expansion pack for Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness. After defeating the Orcish Horde and capturing the survivors, the Human Alliance attempts to destroy the Dark Portal. However, whilst they destroy the portal, the rift that joins the Orcs' world of Draenor to Azeroth remains.
The Alliance forces decide to enter the rift to the Orcs' home world to attempt to seal it from the other side.
At the same time, Ner'zhul - Warchief of the Shadow Moon clan, who has seized control of the Orcish hordes of Draenor following Orgrim Doomhammer's departure (and eventual defeat) to Azeroth, plans to send his forces to Azeroth to gather magical artefacts in an attempt to open rifts to other worlds.
Beyond the Dark Portal contains two 12 map campaigns; one for each side, 50 new pud's (maps) and a new tile set for the Orc home world.
It also contains 5 new hero characters for each side that actively participate in several of the new single player missions. In function, they are simply super powered versions of standard units that have different sounds.
There are no new standard units however, which many saw as a disappointment.
The map editor also isn't updated to include any of this expansion's new features, though third party programs exist that can add these features to the editor.
