Warfront Defenders: Westerplatte is the first game of a series of tactical mini games based on WW2. The gameplay is a single player hybrid of Tower Defense and good-ol' RTS. Played on a diorama like map inspired from Battle of Westerplatte which marked the start of World War 2. Though this is not a chronological account of the battle, the gameplay and the tactics are heavily inspired from the proceedings of the historical battle and it's challenges are designed to remember the defenders of Westerplatte.
The Battle of Westerplatte was unique in many ways, and this game will try to reflect on that. Players can expect that they will be outnumbered, outgunned, but not out of tactics.
