The year is 2025. Advances in science and technology allow major weapons called Uber Weapons to be made. However, due to their immense cost, the old weapons are still intact, too. The world hopes to lower the uber weapon price to a reasonable cost someday.

But that's not all.

A new threat has emerged. Mutated bugs are beginning to attack the world and call themselves the dominant species. All of humanity fears this race, but a hero will emerge and stop the bugs. You.

Your commander has granted you access to 8 units - 4 standard and 4 uber - to stop the bugs from unleashing their wrath upon the world. The fate of the world is in your hands now. Will you stop the bugs? Let's hope so.

Anybody home? I would appreciate some feedback about this game, and what you would like to see in the sequel.

Why, average.
* Towers are bad at shooting things. EXTREMELY BAD. So bad that they seem to be shooting top-left corner of mob. v.hard difficulty is hard only because of this.
* Music is pretty epic. I dont know where you got it, but it certainly made game better.
* Graphics are bad. Really. I think if you would keep objects as single-colored shapes it would look nicer than now.
* Lack of possibility to un-fullscreen the game is sad.
* I have a feeling that sniper towers never actually hit anything, just because of speed they shoot bullets with.
* Game is seriously lacking UI. When I played at first, I had basically no idea what I'm buying.
* Flamethowers & shotguns seem to be quite a lot better than other weapons.
* After leaving the game 'alone' for 15 minutes, I can say that it doesn't look like I'm going to loose any time soon on v.hard difficulty:

Keep working on it, and you'll have a great game. For now I'm not rating it.

Yea, I kind of suspected bad quality. I'll try to fix these in the sequel. But some things I can fix now.

  • I'll make an attempt to devise a way to fix the glitch to where it shoots ONLY enemies in range.
  • The music? Oh, the supreme commander soundtrack.
  • I do have to admit, my math teacher thought the towers were condiments. I'll try to improve graphics.
  • I thought of un-fullscreening at first, but now, I'll fix it to where widescreening is DEFINITELY possible.
  • I'll try to add UI in the next installment. Luckily, I didn't leave the "Didn't know" part totally alone. The glossary is a good alternative.
  • I'll try to lower the power of the flamethrowers/shotguns. If not, then I'll crank up the price. BY A LOT.

Thanks for your feedback. This helped the game A LOT.

Can't try it atm (not at home).

But what makes the game "modernized"?
You have some new game play ides or is it just that it's the year of 2025? :P
