wow, a really good game. i love how it is possible to upgrade the guys permanently in order to need less money to upgrade them during the battle. really nice strategic game :)

good game

I realy liked this game, good that you put some towers later en the game and the upgrading of towers is also a good idee. overal a good game

I also found a bug, the cost of the rocket en machine is not correct, it says that they cost 800 but you pay 650 and 850

6,000th review!

This was a very nice game and I am so glad that I managed to unearth it. The graphics in this are just flawless. You get a really good angle of perspective with how the enemies are coming towards you and a lot of money to start off with. Don't let yourself get cocky, because these enemies become stronger as they change in appearance. I think my favorite are the ones that look like blue cyborgs or something.

There is so much detail put into everything. I love how you get a good outlook of the level before you start playing it. The artwork looks as good as any sidescrolling game for a professional system of today. It is always great to teach a history lesson as well as showing off a really fun game. The graphics just show them sticking out so well.
