Comment: A very interesting hybrid of an RTS and Third person shooter genres, which just happens to involve hybrids as well.

This game offers something that can be rarely seen in a flash game - a vast storyline, which is entirely skipable if player is not interested in it, but it would be a shame to do so as this is not something that can be found in other games.

The story of this game in a nutshell says that 300 years in the future, humans are divided due to constant wars with each other, when aliens invade. Divided Earth proves to be no match for the aliens and they conquer it and the human race. The aliens are hybrids, half-alive machines that try to assimilate other species into their own, thinking they're immortal gods. However, when attempting to ascend the first human to the level of a God, he breaks free in mid-process, giving him special hybrid abilities while still keeping him human. He starts a rebellion against the aliens and takes over one of their spaceships, which becomes the flagship of the rebellion. He, known only as General DEM, now starts a mission to eliminate the alien facility constructed on Earth in Iceland.

The gameplay itself is very interesting, as the player can switch between two play modes, strategy, which is basically RTS mode, and combat, which is a third person shooter mode in which the player controls DEM. Both modes can be interchanged at any time by pressing the space key.

In strategy mode, the player can place one of 6 structures, train units, and order them around like in any normal RTS game. To do so, player uses several controls. WASD keys allow the movement of camera around the battlefield, combined with shift key camera moves faster. Dragging a box with mouse selects unit, and mouse click selects things or orders units to move to the location of the pointer. Holding ctrl key while moving troops orders them to attack and move, while holding shift while selecting units selects new units without deselecting the previously selected ones.
Holding ctrl and pressing 1-5 keys while there are selected units will have them group together.

In combat mode, the player moves around with the WASD keys, combined with shift to run. Mouse is used to aim and shoot, while Q key allows the player to select friendly units. Once selected, E key opens the action-circle which is basically a command panel for selected units, there they can be ordered to attack, hold position, move to a position, or follow DEM. Keys 1-6 activate special abilities, while ZXCVB keys change selected weapon. Weapons can also be changed by using the mouse wheel.
It should be noted that in both modes, P key and esc key pause the game.

From sound point of view, the game is excellent, with all sounds done rather well, and plenty of voice actors for numerous characters in the game.

Visually, the game looks ok, with nicely detailed units and structures, and the background is neat as well, although graphics are not at some higher level. For a flash game though, they're more than good enough.

Overall, it's an excellent game, with great story, which does have its plotholes, but still is much better than almost anything other flash games have to offer, and can easily compete with bigger games as well. Gameplay is nice, although a bit difficult to get used to, and the idea of mixing two game genres and creating a hybrid one is definitely something that can be further exploited. Downside of the game is the rather limited amount of structures and units, with only 6 structures and 5 different units in the game that the player can use, and a few hybrid units that aren't playable. Another downside is the huge size of the game, which needs to be fully loaded before any playing can commence, and this can be quite hard to achieve on weaker connections, as even the faster ones will struggle to load the game quick enough. Those issues aside, the game is really excellent made and will make many players want to play the sequels as well.

Current rating - 9 out of 10

Comment: This production is an action strategy game. It based in massive universe. In that universe the time is much farther then now about 300 years. Game is a real time strategy with many elements of third person shooter. Graphics are preety cool. Whole idea of game is good for me and I think this is a good production. I think this game can be recommanded and everyone should try it. I rate this game 6/10 :)

Comment: the cool thing is that it combines rpg and rts, albeit it being a side scroller. And I would have to agree that it was fun in the beginning but as it goes on, you can't really feel the fun in it. Inovative, but not good enough

Comment: It's a pretty fun game, and I really liked playing it at first. Got sort of boring later on, though. I give it a 7/10 for being good at wasting a bit of time
