Future Wars is a graphic adventure game, the first to use Delphine's proprietary Cinematique point-and-click interface. A right click brings up the verb menu. After choosing one of the six commands, you point the mouse over the desired target and execute with a left click. Small objects are depicted by enlarged drawings - once you found them. Pixel hunting is a very frequent aspect of Future Wars. Lazy players are punished with puzzle dead-ends.
What an unlikely hero! You are a window cleaner. A common, little window cleaner. Yet you discover, more due to your notorious curiosity than by mistake, a time machine in your chiefs back office. Strange? Absolutely. Your adventure in the past and the future is about to begin. The quest? Four words: Evil aliens. Beautiful girl.
Future Wars, a fantasy point and click game that will have you adventuring through the past, present and the future. Controls are easy to use, graphics are nice, sounds are excellent, and the story is fantastic.
As for the storyline, your hero starts the game as a window cleaner, washing them on a tall skyscraper, and having a pompous old fool for a boss. Just as the boss decides to check up on your hero's progress, he spills a bucket of water over the side. After quite some yelling his boss retreats back into his office leaving the window half closed. With no water to clean the windows your hero goes up into the offices to fill the bucket back up with water. Once you reach the offices, you must refill your bucket, and then dump it on your bosses' head. That will make him furious enough to want you dead. Your hero runs through an office or two, a secret passage and finally finds himself in a strange, mysterious room. In this room he finds a time portal that will take him to another world.
Felling alone and scared he sets off into this new world wondering where he is and what the time is. It looks as if he has gone back in time to the medieval age of castles and "Knights in shining armour". Here he finds a king whose daughter has been kidnapped and asks for your hero's assistance in finding her. The monks are the likely culprits now that they have a new Father Superior, but everyone is scared of them and will go nowhere near them to find out if they really took the kings daughter. So your hero finds a way into their little cult to find the answers.
As the search for the king's daughter nears its end your hero finds that all is not what it seems to be. Something strange is happening here in the medieval age, something that is incomprehensible to the people of our hero's own age. As the story unravels itself, your hero travels to different time dimensions, confronts strange enemies, and takes part in an event that could change the world forever.
Great one, walk around, solve puzzles. Beautiful graphics.

Future Wars, Delphine Software's debut and first attempt at an adventure game, is a fun adventure controlled via a home-made point-and-click interface. A right click brings up the verb menu. After choosing one of the six commands, you point the mouse over the desired target and execute with a left click -- straight and simple. Small objects are depicted by enlarged drawings -- once you found them. Pixel hunting is a very frequent sport in Future Wars, making the game extremely frustrating as you must move the mouse slowly across the screen, looking for 1x1-pixel objects you may have missed. Lazy players are punished with puzzle dead-ends. Fortunately, the plot is inventive enough to keep the players glued to the screen and forgive the game's quirks. Overall, a worthy first release that bodes well for the company that would later be famous for excellent action/adventure games.
Alien invasion and anti-hero in main role. Game has pretty good story but I don't like the interface (it's not very user friendly). You should check it out yourself.
