Command H.Q. on sale for $1.74

Command H.Q. is on sale at Amazon and Steam for $1.74 U.S.

Be advised that Command H.Q. is not a new game. According to MobyGames, it was released for DOS in 1990. I'm having fun with it, but your mileage may vary.

I played this game when it first came out - it was great! Also one of the earliest RTS games you'll find. It was made by Dan/Dani Bunton, the same person who made M.U.L.E., and is great fun for a couple bucks, I heartily recommend!

You found it in a bundle? Where, and what other games did you get/see?

  • Darklands
  • F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter 2.0
  • Nam
  • Sid Meier's Colonization (Classic)
  • Sid Meier's Covert Action
  • Sid Meier's Pirates! Gold Plus (Classic)
  • Sword of the Samurai
I suggest watching and waiting until a similar PC game bundle goes on sale somewhere.

Good luck!

yeah I just like steam for these kind of things since I know they are going to have a short shelf life on my comp So this way I can always easily find em when that urge to play them strikes

The bundles are pretty sweet, but I'm not much of a sim guy unfortunately. Grand Strategy/Operational are more my thing. I am *desperately* looking for a WWII grand strategy game that I haven't played before... Need to be able to play against a decent AI. (I don't care if it cheats, I just want a setting where I know that I will lose at - not wipe the computer on hardest without any effort, etc).
