Command & Conquer: Red Alert reaches iPhone, iPod

Modifies gameplay for handhelds

EA has launched an iPhone version of Command & Conquer: Red Alert, its real-time strategy game originally developed for Windows. The title is set in an alternate universe where Adolf Hitler has been assassinated by a time-traveling Albert Einstein, paving the way for the Soviet Union to become the world's dominant military threat. Unusual weapons come to the fore as well, such as combat airships.

Players command forces in 12 main levels divided between Allied and Soviet campaigns. Two Skirmish maps are provided by default, with an additional six costing extra. EA also has plans in the future to sell a Japanese campaign, and introduce a free multiplayer add-on. Red Alert itself costs $10, and requires a device with iPhone 3.0 firmware.
