Dune 2: Cheat codes and passwords

Mission passwords are codes that are given after completing a level. Using them you can load any level in the game. They are an alternative to saving the game and allow you to continue from the mission you left off on. We have collected all mission passwords for you. The first missions do not have passwords, as they are available at the start of the game.

How to enter passwords? You can enter them as at the beginning of the game in the "Options" menu (settings). Or during the game by pressing the Start key. Then select "Enter Password". Use the arrows and the A button to enter. If you make a mistake, use the small left and right arrows. After you finish typing, click the big arrow. If the password is correct, then the mission you need begins, if not, then there will be an error sound.

Dune 2: General tips for the game

1. Where can I download Dune 2? Unfortunately, Dune 2 cannot be officially downloaded or purchased. However, you can play in several ways:

2. How to play Dune 2 on an emulator? You need to download one of the many free emulators. For example, the RetroArch emulator is available on many platforms, including Windows, Android, Apple, Xbox, PlayStation, etc. You set up the emulator, then download and run the game file itself. RetroArch is well suited for RetroAchievements.

3. Follow the story. Read the dialogues before and after missions. This way you will become immersed in the plot of the game, and it will become more interesting for you. And what is happening on the screen will take on a new meaning.

4. Mastery comes with time. The more you play, the better you get at it. Don’t be afraid to lose and start the level over. Believe me, you will definitely be lucky!

5. Rest. When you are tired, you are more likely to make mistakes. If you lose, rest, do other things, sleep, gain strength, and then you will definitely win!

6. Study the level’s objectives. Sometimes it is not enough to destroy all enemies to win. Carefully study the level goals, so you will bring your victory closer.

7. Don’t stop. This is a dynamic game, you can’t think for long here. Look carefully at what actions you can take to get closer to victory.

8. Save often . Emulators provide the ability to save at any time. There are quite a lot of save slots, make the most of it to be able to load from the moment you need. Believe me, the game quite often presents unpleasant surprises.

9. Remember the levels. You need to remember how and what enemy units shoot with. How they move and where they come from. This will allow you to better destroy them and minimize the damage received.

10. Optimal speed. In the emulator settings you can speed up or slow down the game. Set a speed that is comfortable for you and adjust it depending on the situation. If you don’t have time to give orders, reduce your speed. If you have to wait a long time, speed it up.

11. Use hotkeys. They speed up gameplay and make it easier to give orders. Learn them and learn to use them. We will talk about them in the corresponding section of this article.

12. Plan your game. Even if you have little money, think about the future. Make a plan in your head for where you will spend your resources when you have them.

13. Beware of worms. They love to eat your units and have high health, making them very difficult to destroy. However, after eating 3 times, they disappear, so we recommend feeding the worm 3 harvesters at the beginning of the game, since the first harvester is always given for free.

14. Don’t turn off the sound. The game can please you with excellent music. And the sounds will warn you about an enemy attack and other events.

15. Get training. At the beginning of the game, if you do not press the buttons, you can see a video teaching the basics of the game. You can also read our article to master game controls. Without this knowledge you cannot win.

16. Use a joystick. Buy yourself a comfortable and ergonomic joystick. It will make it much easier for you to complete the game than using a keyboard or phone screen. The number of errors due to incorrectly pressed keys will be reduced significantly. And the reaction speed will increase many times over. The joystick will allow you to win more often.

17. The most detailed guide. If after reading our article you still have questions, then I recommend that you study the most detailed Dune 2 guide that we were able to find.

Dune 2: Base Construction Tactics and Defense

1. Secure the base. From the start of the mission, you need to ensure the protection of your buildings. Build troops and defensive structures, and only then scout the area and go on the attack.

2. Have a squad at the base. You shouldn’t take all the units on the attack. You should always have 2-3 units left at your base. Sometimes the enemy can land troops directly to your rear or break through your defenses. In this case, the defensive detachment will be able to eliminate the threat while the main army fights on the front line.

3. Build a lot. All buildings must be built in at least one copy. And there should be an abundance of these structures:

4. Protect harvesters. Enemies and worms love to destroy your miners. Protect them, send them to safe mining regions, otherwise the cash flow will dry up. Atreides units will not automatically shoot the worm.

5. Renovate buildings. We often forget to do this, and it becomes easy for enemies to destroy our defenses and other buildings. Check the health bars of buildings after another enemy attack.

6. Don’t hoard. Invest all the money you earn into expanding your base and strengthening your defense. The amount of funds in your account is limited by your storage. Anything above this amount will be burned, do not allow this to happen. If you have everything, buy planes.

7. Do all your research. Even if you don’t need them now, you may need them in the future.

8. Always build on slabs. A building built without slabs will only have half health, so it will need repairs.

9. Build walls. If your base is attacked by enemies from several sides, you can close one of them with a wall. This is cheaper than building turrets and allows you to focus on defending your base on just one side.

10. Security mode. Place a group of your units near important objects. So they will protect the territory and destroy the enemy all together.

11. Crush the infantry. Tanks or harvesters can crush infantrymen. This is more effective than shooting at them.

12. Free units. Sometimes the game will send you free units and drop them at various points near your base. Don’t be surprised by this, but it won’t happen that often.

13. The enemy is in the rear. Quite often, the enemy will land his units from an airplane in the rear of your base. Build defensive turrets there or leave tanks there.

14. Initial amount of money. At the beginning of each mission you are given a certain amount of money and equipment. If the equipment of all houses is different, then the initial amount of money in missions is the same:

  1. 990.
  2. 1200.
  3. 1500.
  4. 1500.
  5. 1500.
  6. 1700.
  7. 2000.
  8. 2000.
  9. 2500.

Dune 2: Attack tactics and destruction of enemies

1. The more, the better. The game is simple: the larger your army, the higher your chances of winning. Therefore, before attacking, you need to reach the unit limit. Once you reach the limit, you will not be able to produce either vehicles or infantry.

2. Scout the area. Any attack begins with reconnaissance of the area. Even if you find an enemy base, still scout further. The open map will allow you to find the best direction to attack. In our article we will publish level maps that will help you easily find the enemy base.

3. Don’t build infantry. She dies quickly and has a weak attack. Infantry should only be built when it is necessary to capture an enemy building.

4. Repair equipment. After the battle, be sure to repair your equipment. This is much more profitable than producing it again. If a vehicle has less than 30% health, a plane will automatically fly for it and take it away for repairs.

5. Don’t attack head-on. Look for the least protected passage to the enemy base and attack it. This way you will achieve the best result with the least losses.

6. Destroy power plants. Without electricity, enemy turrets become ineffective, and new units take much longer to build.

7. Destroy the economy. Search and destroy enemy harvesters and refineries, this will undermine the enemy’s economy and deprive him of money. But keep in mind, the enemy may send troops to protect them, be prepared for this. Also keep in mind that when the last harvester is destroyed, the enemy will receive a new one.

8. Lure out the enemy. Sometimes you can lure out an enemy not only by attacking his harvester. But also just shooting at single units and buildings. You can lure the enemy onto your army, your turrets, or onto a field with a worm.

9. Order at the spaceport. You can order units at the spaceport faster and cheaper than at the factory. However, the order size is not unlimited. You’ll reach your limit pretty quickly. If your finances allow you, order everything there.

10. Capture enemy buildings. If you want variety in the game, capture enemy buildings with infantry. This way you can produce new units and get exclusive weapons.

11. Use super weapons. At the last levels you will have super weapons and exclusive units. They are free, so use them as soon as possible.

12. Concentrate the fire. It is better to concentrate fire on one enemy and destroy them one by one. This way you will have more success than spraying your fire on a group of enemies.

13. Build on the enemy’s base. You can deploy the MCV next to the enemy and use plates to go behind the enemy base. Then build turrets in the rear and gradually destroy the enemy. However, turrets do not fire at buildings.

14. See our maps . For each mission, we include maps on which you can see the location of enemy buildings. Use them to plan your attack.

15. The best unit for attack. Universal and optimal combination: 3 Launcher + 3 Siege tank. Launchers destroy buildings, and Siege tanks protect them.

Dune 2: Tips from Pro Players

1. The worm is a weapon. Take a fast moving unit and find the worm and let it chase you. Then go to the enemy base and lure the enemy units onto the sand. Thus, the worm can eat 3 defenders of the enemy base. Worms can move throughout the playing floor, where they can crawl.

2. There is no fog of war. You can order an attack on a building, even if it is hidden by the fog of war. This is especially true for long-range units.

3. Everything is faster on the screen. Actions happen faster on screen than off screen. So keep your eyes on your units and let the enemies stay off the screen, this way you will attack and move faster than the enemy.

4. Defenders see more. Standing units see more than moving units. While exploring, stop periodically and you will explore more areas.

5. The enemy’s economy is special. The enemy economy operates according to different rules than the player’s economy:

6. The enemy is not capable of cooperation. Each enemy unit is isolated. The enemy’s intelligence is not able to establish interaction between different units. In missions 8 and 9, each enemy base operates separately.

7. Double damage. Tanks and light vehicles deal double damage when fired in a straight line. When shooting diagonally, the damage is weaker.

8. Launcher vs Rocket Turret. The Launcher can have a longer range than the Rocket Turret if it attacks from bottom to top or from right to left.

9. Be wary of repairs. If the enemy starts repairing buildings with high HP (Palace, Spaceport, Turret, etc.), then it will be very difficult to destroy it, almost impossible. The rate of renovation of such buildings is extremely high.

10. Invisible units (a glitch in the game). If Carryall lands your unit in the fog of war, then it becomes invisible to the enemy. This can be achieved if the building from which the units spawn is surrounded by other buildings or a wall. Then the spawned unit will not be able to leave, and Carryall will fly in to transport it into the fog of war. As soon as a unit starts attacking an enemy, it becomes visible. With this bug you can take the Launcher behind enemy lines and destroy his base.

Dune 2: Game Secrets

1. Accelerated construction. By pressing the B button on the joystick, you can launch the selected building. This is convenient and fast, because there is no need to go to the building menu and select the desired item.

2. Fast scrolling. If you hold down the C key on the joystick and press the arrow, the screen will scroll in accelerated mode.

3. Calling a transport plane. If one harvester is directed towards another, a transport plane will arrive and take it to the Refinery. The plane will arrive even when you don’t have one, but it will then fly away.

4. Palace weapons. After building the palace, his weapons will be loaded and ready for use. After use, the weapon will take a very long time to reload. You can destroy the palace and build it again, it’s faster than waiting for the weapon to reload.

5. Destruction of your buildings. Your buildings cannot be sold or dismantled, they can only be destroyed. Direct your unit to the desired building, and it will shoot at it until it is completely destroyed.

6. Capture buildings. If you send infantry into a building, they will enter it and cause damage to it. If the building has low health, the infantryman will capture it. But be careful, your building will have little health, repair it, otherwise the enemy will quickly destroy it. Some buildings cannot be captured.

7. Stopping production. All buildings that produce units cannot produce them if there are no free cells around the building to place new units. This is also typical for enemy buildings - if you surround it with new units, production will stop.

8. Lockdown of the Refinery. If there are no free cells around the Refinery to place a harvester, then a transport plane will fly in and take it to the nearest free cell.

9. More spice. You can find a tubercle on the sand (not to be confused with a worm). If you shoot at it, an explosion will occur and a lot of spice will appear on the sand. If a unit runs into it, the explosion will destroy it.

10. Harassment. If one unit is sent to another, then it will follow it. This is convenient when you need to send a group of units over a long distance.

11. The secret of the Ordos spaceport. At the Atreides and Harkonnen spaceport, prices may be slightly lower than at the Factory. However, at the Ordos spaceport, prices can be significantly lower than factory prices. This is probably due to the Ordos’ connection with smugglers.

12. Killer buildings. The enemy can build a building on the spot where your unit is standing. Thus, the unit will be destroyed. You won’t be able to do that.

13. Dune 1. It really exists and was released on the Sega Mega-CD console. The game is more like a text quest than a strategy. However, fans of the world of Dune will enjoy the game.

Dune 2: Game Basics

Surfaces. The game has several surfaces, each of which has certain properties. All of them are shown in the picture above. We will tell you about each of them in more detail:

  1. Yellow sand. Equipment moves along it. The dunes (above in the picture) slow down the movement of equipment. A worm can crawl under the sand; it loves to eat the units on it.
  2. Red spice. It can only be found on sand. Spice is extracted by harvesters and taken to a processing plant, where it is turned into money. The richer the color of the spice, the faster its extraction will be.
  3. Rocks. Buildings can only be built on rocks (bottom right in the picture). There are no worms on the rocks, your equipment will be safe here.
  4. Boulders. These are hills on the rocks. You cannot build on them, and vehicles cannot drive over them. However, infantry can be located on them. Boulders can protect infantrymen from being crushed by a tank.

The purpose of the joystick buttons:

  1. Arrows - control the cursor in the game.
  2. Button A - select a building, unit or menu item.
  3. Button B - cancel selection or re-order the last product.
  4. Button C - when held, accelerates the scrolling of the screen with arrows.
  5. Start button - pause menu.

Building menu. By double-clicking the A button, you can enter each building and see a set of actions that can be performed:

  1. Exit - close the building menu, exit to the area.
  2. Repair - repair the building. The button will be inactive if no repair is required.
  3. Stop - construction is cancelled, the money will be returned to your account in full.
  4. Selecting an object - you can select a building or unit to build.
  5. Information - the image and information about the selected object will be displayed on the right side.

Unit management. Selecting a unit is done with the A button. After selection, in the upper right corner you will see an image of the unit, its health and progress (collecting spices or building). By pressing the A button at another location, the unit will perform the corresponding actions (attack, move, collect spices, etc.). Cancel the selection using button B.

Options. Game settings, which can be accessed both from the main menu and during the game. In the options you can do the following:

  1. Turn music on or off.
  2. Turn sounds on or off.
  3. Turn the radar on or off.
  4. Play any melody.
  5. Listen to any sound.
  6. Enter the mission password or cheat code.
  7. Start the mission over again.
  8. Choose another house.

Choosing a home. Before starting the game, you need to choose one of three houses: Atreides, Ordos or Harkonnens. Each of these houses has its own principles, its own mentality, its own units and superweapons.

Atreides. For a long time, the House of Atreides has been famous for its honesty and nobility. Our subjects are obedient, peaceful and hardworking.

Ordos. The House of Ordos includes families with vast fortunes acquired through various means. The concepts of honor, conscience and nobility are not for us; we prefer bribery and terrorism.

Harkonnens. Cruelty. For many years now, the ruthless House of Harkonnen has been terrorizing the entire universe. In our fanatical quest for power, we spare neither friends nor enemies, and I do not advise you to be among the latter.

Dune 2: All units and weapons

Units. We have collected all the units that can be produced in the game in a table. Each unit has a Name, Production Price, Attack, Defense and Building where it can be ordered. In the "House" column we wrote the first letter of the house that can produce it: Atreides, Ordos, Harkonnen.

Devastator80060400VehicleH
Carryall8000100Hi-techA, O, H
Thopter600755Hi-techA, O

Explanations

1. Palace weapons. The table does not include weapons and units produced by the Palace.

2. Spaceport units. You can order different units at the spaceport. Even things that cannot be produced in regular factories are available there, for example Thopter from the Ordos. Unit prices can be either higher or lower than factory prices.

3. Harvester. After appearing, he immediately goes to get spice. Can crush enemy infantry, which is very helpful at the initial levels of the game. It is advisable to have 3-4 harvesters per refinery.

4. MCV. This unit can deploy to the Main Base. To do this, it must be on a suitable platform and you need to click on it. It is very helpful when you need to deploy a second base, for example near a spice or behind enemy lines.

5. Launcher. The unit has weak armor, but it has the most powerful and long-range weapon in the game. During the battle, he must be protected and not let the enemy get close. Launcher can’t shoot close, he constantly misses.

6. Sonic tank. An Atreides tank that fires sound and damages anything in its path. He may inadvertently destroy friendly equipment or a building. However, Sonic tank is not capable of causing damage to another. This tank must be used with extreme caution.

7. Deviator. An Ordos tank that temporarily paints enemy units in our colors. In this way the enemy can be forced to fight for us. Like the Launcher, this unit cannot engage melee enemies and will often miss. It does not damage vehicles and cannot destroy enemy buildings.

Do not use Deviator against harvesters, because when they get to your base, they will turn into enemies again, and your defense will destroy it along with nearby buildings. Also, you cannot repair painted equipment; defending your base will destroy the Repair Plant along with the enemy.

8. Devastator. Harkonnen tank, slow, but with good armor. When you double press the A button on your keyboard, the tank explodes, dealing massive damage to anything nearby.

9. Carryall. These are very useful units in the game. They carry harvesters, thereby speeding up the extraction of spice. The equipment is also taken to the Repair Plant.

10. Thopter. They are expensive and easy to shoot down; they attack on their own. With their help, you can effectively scout the enemy base and distract turrets during an attack.

11. Sandworm. It is impossible to produce and play for him. It moves under sand and has good health. He instantly eats all the equipment that ends up in his area. After eating 3 units, the Worm disappears, so it is better to feed it to harvesters at the beginning of the game, since they are brought in for free.

12. Sardaukars. These are elite troops belonging to the Imperial House of Corrino. Sardaukars have attributes and weapons similar to heavy soldiers, but are more powerful.

Dune 2: All buildings

All buildings in the game. In the picture above we have collected all the buildings that are available in this game. In the table below you will find the main characteristics of the buildings shown in the picture, starting from the top left edge. The table has the following columns:

Dune 2: Atreides Walkthrough

Atreides Mission 1

Briefing. My name is Kiril, and I am glad to welcome you. I will be your advisor to help cleanse this planet of the uncouth plebeians of the other houses. The High Command asks you to build a spice refinery and collect 1000 credits worth of it.

Advice. First, foundation slabs are laid and buildings are erected on them. Build a power plant and a spice refinery. After this, you can easily collect the 1000 credits needed to win.

How to win? Construct all available buildings and wait until the harvester collects 1000 credits. Defend your base from enemy infantry.

Completion. Congratulations! I knew that you would cope with this task very easily. I hope I can be of assistance to you in future missions.

Atreides Mission 2

Briefing. I’m flattered that you didn’t refuse my help. This time you have a choice: collect spice for 2700 credits or destroy the Ordos base located in this region. Good luck!

Advice. Having built a radar and barracks, infantry is an excellent means of protecting your harvesters.

How to win? Build 1 Wind trap and 3 Refinery. Defend your base from enemy attacks. 3 harvesters will quickly collect the required 2700 spice.

Completion. Great job! Our attempt to negotiate honestly with the other houses was met with resistance from both the Harkonnens and the Ordos. The region you conquer will be a good source of financial support for our operations!

Atreides Mission 3

Briefing. Growing tensions on all fronts are forcing us to go on the offensive. The presence of Harkonnen forces in this region has already caused us a lot of trouble. We are forced to ask you for their immediate destruction.

Advice. To win this mission, you will need the products of the weapons factory.

How to win? The worm does not attack in this mission, so you can build 2 Refinery, Outpost and Vehicle. During construction, protect the base, the initial troops should be enough if you use them wisely. Create as many Quads as possible and attack the enemy. However, leave a few units at your base for defense. First, destroy the Construction Yard, and then the rest of the buildings. If your equipment is destroyed, then create a new one.

Completion. You are simply magnificent! Even though I prefer defense to attack, your attack against the Harkonnens reminded me of a well-choreographed performance. On behalf of the entire House of Atreides, I express my gratitude to you!

Atreides Mission 4

Briefing. Your brilliant tactical skills force us to launch another offensive against House Harkonnen. Their attacks on our harvesters must not go unpunished!

Advice. Tanks will help you win.

How to win? We build to the left of the base Wind trap and Refinery. We put Vehicle and Outpost a little lower. The enemy’s first attack will be strong, but it can be repelled by the initial units if you concentrate all the fire on one enemy. Produce a lot of tanks and 2 harvesters. The worm won’t be a problem, but it’s best to destroy it. How to reach the vehicle limit - attack the enemy, but do not leave the base defenseless. A landing party of Sardaukars will constantly attack your base from the rear; crush them with a harvester or a tank.

Completion. Brilliantly! It looks like there are no difficult tasks for you. The Harkonnens will now think twice before attacking our harvesters again!

Atreides Mission 5

Briefing. The rules of the game have changed. The Emperor himself took the side of our rivals! It is necessary to destroy the forces of the treacherous Ordos in this region in order to show His Majesty the true power of the House of Atreides!

Advice. The construction of transporters will greatly speed up the collection of spice.

How to win? Build 5 turrets around the base, and build the rest of the buildings behind them. Produce 3 Harvesters and 2 Carryalls to transport them. We recommend attacking with 2-3 Launchers, which will destroy the enemy base and take several tanks to guard them. It is better to immediately go to the enemy’s left base and try to destroy their main building, otherwise the enemy will constantly build new buildings to replace the destroyed ones.

Completion. Congratulations on another victory! I am beginning to think that you were sent to us by heaven, for your gift of command is truly divine!

Atreides Mission 6

Briefing. The battle for the planet is becoming more complex and tough. Only by applying all our knowledge and talents can we achieve success. The Harkonnen troops in this sector are one of the 3 main obstacles to the conquest of the planet. We have to teach them a lesson!

Advice. In strategically important places of defense, several Missile Towers would be useful.

How to win? We are building a base lower, to the left of your location, closer to a large spice deposit. We strengthen the upper right edge with turrets. We are building 2 Refinery, 3-5 harvesters and 2-3 Carryall. Then we build the rest of the buildings and many heavy tanks. We send 2 Launcher and a couple of tanks behind enemy lines, their task is to destroy the enemy’s main building, as well as other buildings if possible. After this, you can attack the enemy with heavy equipment. Produce new equipment and repair old ones, and over time, victory will be yours.

Completion. Yes! The Harkonnens are retreating! What an impressive success! Did you happen to graduate from one of the intergalactic military academies?

Atreides Mission 7

Briefing. For now, luck is on our side, but this is no reason to relax. It is necessary to crush the Ordos resistance in Sector 7. We are counting on you.

Advice. The ultratank is very effective against enemy troops and buildings.

How to win? We are building a base and defensive structures. The enemy will land troops in your rear, attack from the air and attack the Deviator, so build more Rocket turrets. Your harvesters will be eaten by worms and destroyed by enemies, so build new ones periodically.

First you need to attack the lower base and destroy their main building. It is well guarded on all sides, so attack with several Launchers in the forehead. Then attack the base that is to your left.

Completion. Perfect! Your abilities are becoming brighter and brighter every day! Your successful actions allow us to launch a decisive operation to establish control over the planet. Keep up the good work!

Atreides Mission 8

Advice. Only rocket towers are effective against birdcatchers.

How to win? Build a base and install a lot of Rocket Turrets on all sides. The main attack will come from above and from above to the right. And from below, enemy troops will often and regularly land. Don’t forget to produce harvesters, the worm will eat them and destroy the turrets. The Hand of Death may also arrive from the Harkonnens, have an MCV in reserve.

First, I recommend destroying the upper Harkonnen base, as it causes the most problems. Use Launcher and heavy tanks, lure out enemies and destroy them one by one. Don’t forget about the Palace, it will be free and regularly help in the attack. Then attack the right Ordos base. Go to her rear (upper right corner) and attack from top to bottom.

Completion. This victory will go down in the annals of military history! Frankly, without your excellent leadership skills, we would have no chance of victory. We won this war, and it’s all thanks to you, honorary marshal of House Atreides!

Advice. Use the Palace’s secret weapon as often as possible, as it is restored for free.

How to win? First you need to feed the two worms that crawl from above your base with harvesters. Build a base and turrets above, to the left and below it. There should be more turrets on top, because the main attack will be from there, the enemy will land units on the left, and they can come from below your base.

You can start your attack from the top right corner and move left along the top edge of the screen. Don’t forget to destroy any units you encounter along the way. As soon as you see the main building of the Emperor, destroy it. Or you can strike directly at the center of the enemy base, destroying turrets, units and other buildings until you reach the main building. Then destroy other enemy buildings and equipment. Don’t forget to use Palace and Thopter if you have extra money.

Completion. Good morning, Your Honor, and please accept my congratulations.

Dune 2: Why is the game so popular?

1. Dune Universe. Many books have been written and many films have been made about the world of Dune. However, not many games have been created, and fans of the series are grateful for any creation based on this game lore. Moreover, Dune 2 fits perfectly into this universe.

2. Good graphics. Even by today’s standards the game looks decent. And nostalgia for pixel graphics gives the game a special charm.

3. Great music. Many people have forever loved Dune 2 for its music and sounds. The soundtrack for the game was written by famous musician Frank Klepacki. Some listen to this music in the car, player and tape recorder.

4. Interesting plot. Many videos perfectly immersed us in an interesting plot. You didn’t just fight, you brought your home to control of Dune, control of the universe. No noble house, not even the Emperor, could stand in your way of final victory. This alone made me want to complete the game for each side.

5. Successful combination. None of the elements of the game were unique for its time, but the developers presented a successful combination of fog of war, micromanagement, economic model, resource collection and base building method, which became the "template" for subsequent games in the genre.

6. High grades. Many gaming magazines of that time gave Dune 2 high marks and wrote laudatory articles. This further fueled the interest of the players. Magazine ratings:

7. Followers. Dune 2 has become a canon in the RTS genre for a long time. Many subsequent games took their cue from it and borrowed elements from it. Perhaps without Dune 2 we would not have such masterpieces as WarCraft, StarCraft, Command & Conquer, Age of Empires and Warhammer 40,000 in the form in which we know them now.
