  1. What’s the difference between these two games. Is it mostly just a skinning change, or if the gameplay different at all?

    I’m trying to figure out which one to get first.

  2. Game-play is generally similar. However, there are different units in both games. For Tropical Stormfront, all the structures generate income while for Desert Stormfront only the oilfields generate money.

    You can try the lite/demo version first to see which one one like?
