Cuban Missile Crisis is a Real-Time Strategy game combined with a turn-based global tactical mode, thrusting gamers into a world ravaged by the military-political confrontation between USA and USSR in 1962. Cuban Missile Crisis offers gamers an alternative interpretation of the events that followed the famous global standoff on the small island nation. After the crisis broke out, two superpowers unleashed their nuclear arsenal on the world, leveling Cuba and turning it, along with the majority of the world's metropolitan expanses into scorched radioactive deserts.
