Update: The Fash 8 version of the game has been deleted and the old submission (this one) has been overwritten with the Flash 8 version. That way there's only one version of Uniwar LC on here. Also the link to the readme is no longer available. Sorry.

Has any body noticed the console in uniwar? Uniwar is the very first flash game to have a very interactive console :) heres a hint, if you beat the game, you'll get some console commands that allow you to "cheat" in the game...enjoy

STRATEGY GUIDE!
People have been having trouble on this game, seems to be too hard for the average person, I would like to thank ManekiNeko for creating this detailed guide to beating Uniwar LC:
In the normal game, where you have to blow up 30 enemies, you're basically dealing with four different types of enemies -- two that look like tie-fighters and move in a diagonal "X", two that spin and fire at you, three that descend and attack and one that just flies by before being chased by one of your allies.

The easiest ones to get points on are the two that move diagonally down the screen, as they don't fire at you. Shoot a second or two ahead of them and you'll score a kill.

If you get hit by the two that spin and fire, try to move out of the way by pulling all the way into a corner until your shields come back. Go after them when your shields are restored.

The three that descend upon you are the most difficult, as you probably won't even get credit for all three (you don't get credit if you cause the ship to go into a spin, and I don't know why. This appears to be a glitch). But you should be able to shoot them twice a piece and get rid of them. Employ a similar strategy if possible to the two that spin and fire at you.

The one that flies by is difficult. You really have to anticipate it going to be there. Timing is everything.

Once you get to 20 kills, you face off against a huge ship. Anyone who's played the old Star Wars video game from 1983 should have a basic strategy down -- fire at the silver missiles with the orange tails first (Make sure you blow them all up. There will usually be three or four total every time the ship appears and goes across the screen), then go after the front of the ship and fire to reduce its shields. This takes some time and is basically nickel and diming the ship to death but it does work. I beat this my third time playing, so I can attest that this CAN be done. Good luck, space jockeys!

Combat Instinct = Terminated?

This game certaintly puts CI3 to shame. It has all one great package.. Great Graphics, Sound, Options, Even it's style is Fantastic. It's also avaliable for Download to play without the bog of AOL Lag. I mean, come on.. this game is almost Publish Quality, if he adds more levels a longer story and more modes of play. I reallycan't find anything wrong with it... Wow, that's saying something.

WOW!

nice graphix! the best in the series when it comes to style and graphix quality. but I still like the style of the first one. If you could make that plus the kind of visuals in this game then you'd have yourself one of the best games in newgrounds, I'm talkin commercial quality man!

woa howd you do that

i just souped up my computer and with all of the graphics up...that was one of the best looking games in newgrounds next to that awesome 3d shooting game which i forgot what name is currently, you should make it easier longer and funnier and that will make it sooo fucking awesome great job dude cant wait for the next one

P.S. since you answer all of your reviews, what does LC stand for??!


<deleted> responds:

that game you forgot, i'd take a random stab at it either being xiao xiao 4 or tsunami. this is just a demo. i honestly cannot say if this particular game will be done but there is definitely more in the uniwar series in the works. LC stands for lost civilization. its in the title when you view it.

Good...but a few problems

I did enjoy this game let me start with that. But it was way too short. More levels should have been incorperated and it by no means helps the story. This easily could have survived on its own with out the Uniwar name. Although it was a good game, more content should have been incorperated. Maybe instead of ships the whole time, at one point you should be able to control the person alone.


<deleted> responds:

this is doomhammr responding. well said, well said. keep in mind its still a demo and the game is still incomplete. i actually recommended to alex to not submit this until completion because the ng community was sick of demos but because he took the greater part in this one, i went ahead and let him.
