Nuclear War game description

In Nuclear War you have to blow the opposition to smithereens – you have four opposing factions. You can either drop the bomb on them using a bomber, fire a missile, or try to lure their population using propaganda.

Ocassionally a random event occurs, for example aliens would land on one of the factions and the population suddenly grows, or someone throws cows at the opposition, causing a major stampede and killing millions.

The game is played between five players, four of which are computer controlled and chosen from a selection of 10 satirised “World Leaders” of the past decades (like Ronnie Raygun aka Ronald Reagan or Gorbachef aka Mikhail Gorbachev). Each leader is given a country with five different populated cities and once a leader’s five cities are destroyed, he is out of the game. The object of the game for the player is to build up a decent arsenal, protect his own cities and destroy the enemy ones by hurling propaganda or flaming nuclear death at them to be the last surviving player at the end.
