survivorThis is the most addicting, polished and coherent entry I've played so far - nothing seems out of place here. I can't but give it a 5, even though most of the specific ratings are worse. Minor bug: The game expects to be played with an American keyboard layout - poor Commies!

Mark FassettI had trouble seeing the spread of communism, otherwsie I would have voted theme higher. Played it a bunch, though.

ImpossibleGreat game. Everything is well done but my favorite thing is the music, which reminds me of Mega Man. I was even more impressed with the game (which I thought was basically a zombie shooter) when you explained the icon based conversation system on IRC, but it's not really apparent that it has effect on the gameplay while you're playing. I would have liked to see you take it further, maybe cut down on the shooting and allow the player to occasionally talk to civvies and enemies?

flgrNice graphics, nice sound. The idea isn't directly infection related, but I'll just count that as humour. Also one of the rare games which I actually wanted to keep playing. The downside is that after all it's still just a shoot-the-bad-guys kinda game, but at least it doesn't involve zombies.

CenozoicExtremely polished. The graphics, especially in the interfaces, are consistently good. Much good sound I only wish I wouldn't lose points for killing civilians, if they're talking about communism. Preemptive measures are fun.

zogglesSo many nice touches really wish I'd left this one til last. "By comrades for comrades" hehe. Only one suggestion, and that is when playing the soviet mission (another lovely touch. very simple to implement, but makes the game feel so much bigger) would be to use a small hammer and sickle symbol as the * instead of the US looking *. Otherwise brilliant. - Z

JolleReally cool and complete game. And since you can play on either side, I can't really complain about anything ;) Kind of reminds me a bit about Syndicate (wars)...

bluescreenVery nicely presented - sound and anims :). Good use of the theme. Could do with obstacles (walls/trees) to add an element of strategy/tactics, instead of 'chicken runs' at the enemy...

dumpleGreat stuff! I love all the nice little touches - the 'army font', the harmonizing parts in the theme song, the Sims-esque thought-items over people's heads. Gameplay is kind of simple, but pretty darn fun as-is.

logicalhipporeally funny idea, and the execution is even more funny (soviets just talk to would be converts, americans just shoot). soviet campaign was a stroke of genius. That said, core gameplay was a little repetitive, and I would have liked better animation in the sprites. The dialogue was a really good idea, the babies after lots of loving is also a nice touch. The AI seemed a little spotty, sometimes they would hit me immediately without a chance of retaliation, and sometimes they wouldn't offer a bit of resistance. This is one of the more fun games to just play around with, thanks to the entertaining dialogues and stuff. presentation was slick. music was cheesy brilliance. Nice job!

wisebedeCannon fodder in 48 hours. Woohoo! Nicely presented. The commies don't spread very quickly so I didn't get the idea of having to protect the civvies. And a more powerful gun would be nice. But all in all a very nice game. And I liked the emoticon speech bubbles.

Ufo ZWow! Very neat - a funny concept that fits the theme. The sprites are very cute, with the little icons over their heads. The music is excellent, although after a while a little bit annoying. What I found a little weird was the way the machine gun worked, it seemed that when attacking the enemy the gun aimed consistently two inches before my opponent and not at him, especially when trying to move close to get within range. The AI was tough. Love the title screen, very polished game. ^_^

Krzysiek-KNice game. Graphics are nice (although characters could use some animation), music is great, SFX are OK. Game strongly reminds Cannon Fodder. It could have some additional features (like buildings, additional weapons) but it's still fun! :)

summy2004Although I think the game has very little to do with the theme, I liked it. A simple but effective "AI" attached to NPC's, with emoticons representing each NPC likes or dislikes, is one of the points in favor of this game. One of few games that has a high score table. Lack of power ups is one of the negative points in this game.
