Screenshots

Uprising: Join or Die Windows The satellite view lets you order facilities such as power buildings which mine resources, set waypoints, see a global map, repair buildings and also keep an eye on your Wraith.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows The mortar is a weapon that you will quickly want to buy. It is efficient at destroying buildings. Notably, it can help finishing off a building only partially destroyed by bombardments.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows Unleashing a K-sat (Killer satellite) attack on an enemy citadel. Each attack need the K-sat to be reloaded (long delay) and costs 900 Z (upgrades can lower it to 600 Z).
Uprising: Join or Die Windows The grey area is some sort of toxic sand and will damage your Wraith. You can avoid that by using the bridge, but you will have to destroy the turret guarding it first.
