There are many strategy flash games around and Shadez 2 is certainly one of the best. This is a side scrolling game, but you will usually set base in one location. You can start the game with the training mission. Here you will learn that everything can be controlled with your mouse and the only use for the keyboard is to look around the map with the help of the WASD keys. Basically, you simply have to create a power plant, at least one ore refinery and the barracks. These are the three building types which will help you finish your first missions. Soldiers are created by clicking on the barracks and choosing the soldier icon. You can create up to 9 soldiers at a time, but you need to have enough ore. You can select all of the soldiers by dragging a rectangular over them and you can indicate what to attack or where to move with the left mouse button. Each mission of Shadez 2 is different; sometimes you just have to destroy a few buildings, other times you have to rescue civilians. There are many campaigns available and you will surely like the upgrades which appear after each level. You can use your points for purchasing these upgrades and for making your army stronger.
Shadez 2 comes with two playing modes: campaign and skirmish. This means that you won't have time to get bored and that this isn't a simple flash game. You can play it for hours and finishing it with a high score is certainly rewarding.
