Screenshots

Uprising: Join or Die Windows Enemy soldiers can be killed by shooting them or, as shown here, rolled over, which takes less time and is more satisfying.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows You can move into light blue water but cannot go through deep blue water. From time to time, pick-ups are dropped from the sky. A distinctive beep helps you locate them.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows Jumping over here is possible and provides a nice shortcut. You will however need to allocate all power to speed and gain some momentum by rolling and reaching max speed before the gap.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows These are automatic mine deployers and will spit a good number of mines in the area before disappearing. Good for planning traps.
