WarGames: Defcon 1 (known simply as WarGames on PC) is a video game for the PlayStation and Microsoft Windows. Although both versions possess the same missions and content, the PlayStation version is a tactical vehicle-shooting game while the PC version is a Real-time strategy game.

PlayStation version[]

The player gets to play as NORAD or WOPR. During a mission the player takes control of a vehicle and can change the controls of any vehicle the team has - for example, while NORAD has heavily armored and armed tanks and aircraft, WOPR possesses exotically futuristic mechs and hovercraft. Vehicles could recharge ammo by obtaining powers. A unique feature in the game allows the player to command their team to send resupply on ammos or repair damage units. The game allows the player to command teammates to attack or follow the player's main vehicle.


Wargames features 2-player split screen VS. or Co-op. The Co-op allows the players to play all single player levels with a partner.

PC version[]

Unlike the PlayStation version, the PC version is a Real-time strategy game, in which the player can control different units at once. The missions are identical to the PlayStation version.
