DescriptionIn Nuclear War you have to blow the opposition to smithereens - you have four opposing factions. You can either drop the bomb on them using a bomber, fire a missile, or try to lure their population using propaganda.
Ocassionally a random event occurs, for example aliens would land on one of the factions and the population suddenly grows, or someone throws cows at the opposition, causing a major stampede and killing millions.

TriviaThe game was originally written on the Amiga, and ported to the PC. The PC port is very similar, but they didn't use the original digitized sounds for some reason.
The only really "significant" loss in the PC version was the removal of the sound effect when you drew the 100 Megaton warhead card. In the Amiga version, you hear a crowd of people "oo"ing, but in the PC version it's just like any other card.
