Dune computer game
This article or section refers to elements from one of the Dune computer games.

Arrakis is a fan-made clone/spinoff of Dune II by Stefan Hendriks. It reached the final version (1.13) in 2000. It utilizes its own custom engine, written in Quick Basic, and homemade graphics/assets to avoid copyright issues. Only sound effects are borrowed from the original. Like the original Dune II, it runs as a DOS application.

The game is a simplified version of Dune II, with an interface similar to that of Command & Conquer. The three Houses have the same assets, with some differences in cost/performance of units. There are 10 missions for each House, and you can also play skirmishes against one computer player, on custom or random maps. The game is rough, buggy, and not much more than a curiosity.
