Real-time strategy games (RTS) are video games where the game does not progress incrementally in turns, as it's usually done in strategy games.
In real-time strategy games participant's position and maneuver units and structures under their control to secure areas of the map, like in Command & Conquer: Red Alert 2, and/or destroy their opponents' assets. In typical RTS games, it is possible to create additional units and structures during the course of a game, the good example might be Cossacks: Back to War. This is generally limited by a requirement to expend accumulated resources. Resources in real-time strategy games are in turn garnered by controlling special points on the map and/or possessing certain types of units and structures devoted to this purpose, as in Starcraft: Brood War,. More specifically, typical RTS games feature resource gathering, base building, in-game technological development and indirect control of units.
Due to the high popularity of these games all the gamers go to websites where they can download free real-time strategy games or buy real-time strategy games, like Age of Empires. There are a lot of RTS games for PC, but also many such games were released exclusively for consoles.
The most iconic real-time strategy game is Command & Conquer: Generals — Zero Hour.
