Never think to know all C64 games. Today I found out this diamond in the roof!
The game has been released also for Atari 400/800 , Apple II, Applesoft Basic, 16K beyond Basic, PET 2001, TRS-80 Level II [16K Memory required]
Nukewar is a semi-serious simulation of the choices facing the leaders of two nations as they attempt to provide strategic defenses for their countries in the nuclear age.
The key assumption in this simulation is that strategic nuclear war will occur as the arms race cause continued stockpiling of nuclear weapons.
The game is a nuclear version of the game Battleship, and it features a fog of war element that adds a sense of realism to the gameplay.
The game also includes the option to negotiate with the enemy, which adds an interesting twist to the gameplay.
One of the interesting things about Nukewar is that it has been reviewed positively for its sarcastic sense of humor.
The game’s “secret” cards are apparently laced with a very sarcastic sense of humor, which adds to the game’s overall charm.
Nuclear War is another game that has been reviewed positively and is similar to Nukewar.
The game features nuclear escalation, spies, cruise missiles, space platforms, satellites, food poisoning, and viruses, which greatly expands the gameplay.
It’s worth noting that Nukewar is not a horror game, despite being mentioned in a list of the scariest video games of all time.
The game is actually a strategy game that is meant to be played for fun, not to scare players.
Nukewar is a classic game that is worth checking out if you’re a fan of strategy games. The game’s unique blend of humor and strategy make it a standout title, and the game’s fog of war element and negotiation options add an interesting twist to the gameplay.
Basically you start with the map 8 x 8 grid points representing the two countries that are facing each other.
On the Display :
C – City
M – Missile Base
B – Fighter Bomber Base
S – Submarine Missile Base
A – ABM (antiballistic Missile Base)
Computer will ask the name of your country then it will generate 8 cities and 2 bases for any country. The game enters in the first Cold war turn : a random year from 1956 to 1965.
The computer will ask for COLD WAR ORDERS :
– S – Spy
– W – War
– N – Normal
After , the Computer will ask for BUILDING WHAT BASE TYPE :
– M – Missile Base
– B – Fighter Bomber Base
– S – Submarine Base
– A – ABM
The Nuclear War will start eventually if started by the computer itself or by the player moving so to HOT WAR contest.
The remaining is much intuitive for any kind of user and at last not least remember that is up to you to accept negotiations – Y – or to deny them – N – .
