Some people have been experiencing issues with the game. If it won't open at all, try updating the flash player, and using a browser other than IE. To those with whom it works but is extremely laggy, Flash Player 11 allowed us to code the game to use your graphics processor instead of just the ram/CPU. Flash player 11 is still brand new and I guess we're experiencing first hand the incompatibility issues, so please forgive the inconvenience!

You can also try right clicking, settings, then selecting the tab to the left and making sure you have 'enable hardware acceleration' allowed. Also try making sure your graphics card drivers are up to date.


THIS GAME will NOT work unless you have installed the Latest Flash player update (Flash Player 11)!

Best thing ever since Microsoft Powerpoint

Absolutely hands down the best slide show simulator I've ever played.


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Framerates are Very important

Its a really good game, but you've seem to have forgotten that most people that actually play flash games, do it because they have less than perfect computers.
You need to add a quality setting, like, now.

I like it, but...

You need to optimize a few things because the lag is just downright terrible. Well constructed and fun but it all means nothing if it takes a full second to start moving or for a shot to go off. And that, as they say, is that.

Finished game, you can too.

This game is an excellent piece of work, a large amount of effort was put into it, music got a little repetitive but the rest of the game worked well, nice sense of progression, a good learning curve when you get into a good strategy, and an excellent story for a game of this genre. I personally had no technical difficulties so I can't say I ran into any bugs like the rest of the reviewers.

Strategy for new players: Spend all you initial money on flamethrowers near corners and choke points, and lasers at bottlenecks, then get a medical station to heal you up (as long as you stand on it). Whenever you successfully hack a terminal, the waves get stronger, so be prepared for the higher powered units before you capture a point. If you die, just learn from your mistakes and try again, all the levels are possible with a little strategy and a load of flamethrowers.

Strategy later on in the game: Focus on making a "base" somewhere you can retreat to after collecting scrap. At the levels with tanks an walkers, be sure to get an armory and get max armor, tanks will kill you fast if you stand still without armor. Never try to kill higher level enemies by standing still and shooting out them, if you want to kill enemies with you weapons, stand out of their range with a rocket launcher( its heat seeking, very useful), mostly stick to flamethrower turrets and missiles. I personally didn't use EMP that much, but it is useful when all the lanes filter into one spot with an EMP and a wall of missiles.

For defeating the boss: Collect all the scrap in the map, then run to the edge, build a max level medical station, an armory, a missile turret, two flamers flanking your enclosure, and max armor. Don't worry about the chopper, its only a threat when you get in the way of its massive bullet storm. Focus on upgrading your flamethrowers and getting more missiles. Your goal is to stay alive as the chopper wanders into your flamethrowers and takes massive damage.

Again, well made game, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

The first level was awesome. Then I started the second. Got near the first terminal, threw down a turret, and started shooting. Then the screen froze. The terminal showed it was still being hacked, and sound effects continued as if the game were still playing, but I died after a short while of not knowing what the fuck was happening. I clicked "retry" thinking maybe it wouldn't freeze again, only to see myself exactly froze the way it was right when the level started. Thinking ahead, I closed the game via the "hide game" x button, and clicked play again. Now currently there is a screen up that says "The Engineer" and has his picture. No buttons, no sound, nothing, just the main menu picture.

Fix your bugs.
