Operation Gamma 41
- Release Date: 2011
- Publisher: Just A Game
- Developer: ZQGame
- Genre: Strategy
Operation Gamma 41 (OG41) is a browser game set in the world war 2 where two factions “Free Confederation” and “Allied imperial Force” confront each other. The game tries to innovate itself from its beginning, but finally falls into a city building and empire building mechanism, which has been used in many browser MMOs such as Global Warfare, WII Rage and many more I have listed in the end of this article.
The game, fundamentally, transforms itself into a new look under its previous title War 2 Glory, which has already been reborn as Dawn of Nations, The Stratagems and War 2 victory that is from iPhone Store.
I do not want to give too much comments about this game since I was hating the act of co-publishing, or something remake, rebuild, redesign, reloaded, which subconsciously urges me to keep away from. While Operation Gamma 41 is just what I am talking about, it is never a new game, but a shallow or superficial revamp only in the game’s login and account creation, which ends up with a city builder.

The Other Facts:
I was reminded of this copycat a few months ago when a Chinese friend of mine from ZQGame.com told me his team was in touch with A German game publisher “Just A Game” for the potentially exclusive distribution of “战争之路” in North America and European Regions like Germany and Poland. Why is ZQGame, the developer of Operation Gamma 41 (OG 41), so urgently proactive to sell out it?
In retrospect, it is not hard to draw a conclusion on that. ZQGame has a better game than “War 2 Glory” “Just A Game” is running now. Most importantly, the game is a copycat version of a successful product “War 2 Glory”.
Different from other warfare online game I’ve played, Operation Gamma 41 tells the whole background information before entering the game, which makes the methods, the tasks and other must-know things quite clear. It’s so wisely designed; otherwise I’ll be lost in guessing what the game tries to tell me. The story is set in 1941, when the world was in chaos.
Let’s save words about the visual and audio effects…they’re just ok. Gold is the in-game currency here, while you can earn it by completing the ‘story mission’ and getting gifts of time-based rewards.
Entering the game, the interface looks quite complicated. Besides the normal bars showing resources, health, gold and the chat panel, most of the interface shows the whole city you’re about to take control. It includes all kinds of military factories, headquarter, airport, armory, siege workshop, etc. It could be the most complicated interface I’ve ever experienced. But the goal is clear, take care of the city and manage the army.
Since it involves city-building, the same stuff comes out again. The key words here are, building and upgrading. Get more resources (steel and lumber) as possible, upgrade all the equipment and buildings, and level-up the character…I mean, most of city-building games have the same steps. I thought Operation Gamma 41 is a war-themed game, but it turned out to be a more strategic and not action style. Reallocate your population to different sites and help produce the supplies.
Once you cannot do anything on the screen, don’t panic! It’s not your computer’s fault. Pay attention to your right top, there must be a red sparkling sigh, meaning your city is under ATTACK! Just as I thought it finally allows me to do some fieldwork, I find it wrong again. This game always reminds me of the fact that it is all about strategy, not action. So my first war lasts less than 1 minute, and I kinda ‘wiped out the enemies’. God, I didn’t move a finger during the war!
However, I did learn something important from this type of games. Just like ‘All War in Rome’, OG41 tells me to raise the tax rate from 10% to 50% during wartime. The army needs money in upgrading, so as to fight against the enemies. Recruit and arm the soldiers, and transfer them to the Commander. This time, you have the capability and courage to launch an attack! How exciting. Launching an attack is far more interesting than being attacked. You can lead the whole process, like moving your army and fire, etc. Enjoy your game.
