The Best Side Scrolling Strategy Games

Real time strategy games with a 2D perspective, and a side scrolling camera. Each players sends troops from their base, and they meet in the middle. Your goal is to keep gaining ground on the battlefield, so that you meet the opponent closer and closer to their base until you eventually overrun it. These games are all about strategic timing and unit choice to gain the upper hand on the battlefield.
