Isle Wars Pro is the Win9x sequel to Isle Wars, a game of global domination. Battle takes place among 46 countries divided between 9 continents of varying size. Occupying an entire continent gives you bonus armies based on the size of the continent. Random flooding, seismic activity and revolution can destroy armies, and distribution centers, which are randomly distributed across the map, occasionally double the number of troops residing in them. After every turn in which at least one country has been conquered, the invading army receives a card. Unlike Risk, there are a great variety of different bonuses awarded by the cards, and there is no guarantee of having a set of three after receiving 5 cards. If cards can't be played, or if the player elects not to use them, he must discard a card of his choosing before collecting another card once he has 5. Cards can be used to add 5, 8, 15, or double the number of armies that can be assigned at the beginning of the turn, bomb a city, or protect the player from being bombed. New to Isle Wars Pro is randomly moving production centers, and the computer opponents will collectively offer their surrender when it's obvious that you're going to win the game (you can decline and keep playing). The shareware version pits you against 3 computer opponents, and allows customization of difficulty level and the number of armies at the beginning of the game. The registered version allows up to four humans to play.
