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!

Dude, that game ROCKED!!!!!! Please, please, please make a sequel to this one. This reminds me of the Starfox games. By the way, could you fix the problem with the README thing, it just doesn't work.

a good game with averge graphics and great effects

the look of this game was cool for the most part and the special effects were great. unfortunately the gameplay was limited to a small range, meaning you can only shot at things that came into your view, you really move around much, and the game needs more levels it ends when you just start getting into it. so this would be a awesome game if only it was longer and you could move around more. 6/10
