The Cold War ignites when ’80s era action toys come alive and wage war! Toy Soldiers: Cold War Touch Edition delivers hours of intense combat combined with non-stop action strategy gameplay, now redesigned for tablets and touch-enabled PCs running Windows 8!
Superpowers collide in this playful homage to ’80s action toys and films. Command the powerful Cold War arsenals of the USA or USSR armies, while controlling base turrets, modern combat vehicles, fighter jets, attack helicopters, and commando action figures. When not fighting in a campaign vie for the highest scores on the mini-game leaderboards, and while you’re at it, don’t forget to BLOW EVERYTHING UP!
In addition to the main campaign, includied with the Windows 8 version are both the NAPALM and EVIL EMPIRE add-on campaigns from Xbox LIVE® Arcade. Fight alongside your favorite Commando again while pushing into the jungles of the Viet Cong in NAPALM and join Ivan in the fight against a rising super power in EVIL EMPIRE.

Well for those of you doubting the High-end game experience on Windows 8, here you go. Of course this is not for the ARM tablets and SurfaceRT, these are kind of game you play with a dedicated fan blowing on your rig. ARM processor can only dream of such a performance. So if you’ve got your rig ready, and you’re allowed to play violent game, i.e. you’re starting to grow a beard or anything above that stage, go ahead and download the app via the Source link. It’ll cost you $10.
