Decent start

Just a Guy in DC

The good: Simple interface, decent strategy, relatively balanced, good graphics (given the intent of making it look like a 1980s vector map). Early on, it shows the futility of all-out nuclear war.

Potential, but could be improved: show the score at the end of the game. Break it down by who fired how many nukes, and who caused how much destruction. Change ABM options: make them automatic, make them separate from the silos, make them load only as often as the nukes, and give each upgradable nation one per upgrade.

The bad: ICBMS are useless. MIRVS are so much more effective, they can be used exclusively. Sound and music is terrible. ABMs aren't useful as currently designed. If you use them you go to fully defensive mode, and you cannot progress.

A great game

This is a simple arcade like game thats fun when you simply want to blow some %#*! up. While I love this game and think its a good start it could use a couple improvements. For starters I would like an abort button that causes nukes to detonate harmlessly in the air. An accidental nuke placement can ruin your entire game. Another thing I would like to see is a nation status on your relations. Like a little list off to the side saying stuff such as "declared total war" and " retaliating with [insert number here] nukes. That way I would know when I would have to wait it out and when to attack back. Other than that this is a great game! Keep it up!

Great, but… UPDATES


I would love I you could watch the war carry on, even after your silos are destroyed, and maybe even politics after the war, thx for the great game
