volters 3d box large

Suddenly, panicked interplanetary calls for help were heard from Mars. A frightening alien menace known as the Fermitians - named after the astronomer Enrico Fermi – had attacked the planet and had occupied it within a matter of hours.

 

It soon became clear that the Fermitians were planning the  complete destruction of the Red Planet, using a massive bomb referred to as the Doomsday Device.

 

On another front, it was detected that a second alien invasion fleet was heading full speed toward the Earth's Moon.

 

There was only one way to deal with this coordinated invasion - send in the Volters!

 

The 324th Volter Regiment is an elite reaction force that was created for this kind of interplanetary mission. With the support of the heavy Starcruiser “Skybreach”, the Volters have been ordered to Mars and the Moon.

 

Volters Lead the Way! is an exciting solitaire tactical game in which you, as the Commander of the 324th Volter Regiment, must lead elite Rangers in an attempt to save Mars and the Earth's Moon and stop the alien invasion of the solar system before the Earth herself becomes in danger.
