Eastern Front pits the Nazi Germans against the Russian armies on a realistic map of eastern Europe. The player commands the Germans and controls unit strength, deployment and movement, while the computer controls the Russians. The "map", or playfield, is several times the size of the screen, which serves as a "window" on the map. The player views the remote parts of the map by "scrolling", or moving the joystick so the screen window appears to move across the map.
