Defcon: Global Thermonuclear Domination gives you the chance to manage a scenario faced in the leading generals' worst nightmare: Total nuclear war. The third World War is starting, and you'll manage it from a single screen. You'll attempt to destroy your enemy through all-out nuclear war, while stopping them from destroying you. Each side has key cities and installations, and up to six superpowers can compete at the same time on the same map.

The world is on the brink of Armageddon. A full-scale global thermonuclear war has broken out, and as a general in a bunker somewhere, you must direct your offensive and defensive systems to nuke your opponents. Nobody wins, but maybe you can lose the least. Everybody dies.

DEFCON is an online multiplayer strategy game, but it can also be played in a singleplayer mode. Players place units, such as missile silos, airbases and radar dishes, on their territorial maps, and the game counts down from DEFCON 5 to DEFCON 1, during which time the players are to make strategic choices to eliminate their opponents without losing too much themselves.

The gameplay is shown on a large world map and the action is represented by icons and lines reminiscent of the drawing style of their two previous games: Darwinia and Uplink.
