Summary

Ronny Raygun...Mao the Pun...Infidel Casto -- what more need be said??

The Good

Who can forgot those timeless names as well as other classics like Trickie Dick or Gorbachef??

We recently dug it up and fired it up on our Mac-only office and ran it through a DOS emulator! It was still a great hoot even after all these years.

The graphics seem dated, of course, but I recall back then being thoroughly impressed.

The depth of gameplay is not great by today's or even standards back then, but it's a quick time-killer and stress reliever.

The Bad

The sound effects were a little annoying. Also, as mentioned earlier, it was a bit simplistic even for a game in 1989.

The Bottom Line

One of the funniest (probably only) game to mock world leaders and a nuclear holocaust. Timeless classic, and definitely still playable today.
