Review by  Arthur O'Dwyer
Reviewed on 2010-11-16
A simple menu-based "RPG" in which you are in charge of winning the Cold War for the Soviets (or allegedly for the Allies, but that half of the game just exited with "Unknown Label" when I tried it). You can spend your limited amount of cash on guns or tanks, or recruit soldiers for free; then you select "ATTACK ALLIES". If your strength is high enough, you win that stage and go on to the next country where you do the same thing again; otherwise, your army is decimated and you have to do the same thing again, *again*.

In practice, it seems like it's just an exercise in hitting "RECRUIT" over and over, since soldiers boost your strength for free. The game doesn't give you any hints as to the strength you need in order to clear each stage, either. I got bored pretty quickly. Definite balance issues here. :)

There is also an option to use nukes, which if you correctly type the secret verification code "Y-E-S" causes the game to end spectacularly. But don't worry; if you fail to enter "Y-E-S" the game ends anyway, with an error.

On the plus side, there's a good deal of flavortext, including randomized messages when you "RECRUIT". The game feels polished... until you get to one of the parts that just isn't there. 9/10 for flavor, 6/10 for effort, 2/10 for replay value.
