SummaryExcellent Idea, But Could Be Improved
The GoodObviously the best part about this game is the ability to create your own custom units (I know I've always wanted to do that) like giant flying lobsters. It is also fun to see all kinds of different units fighting one another. Graphic wise, the game is excellent and despite constantly having hundreds of units on the screen, the game still runs very smoothly, even on slower computers. Also, you can fight your custom units against other people's creations in multiplayer, which is quite fun.
The BadUnfortunately, the only thing different in this game from most other strategy games is the ability to create your own units. Not much difference elsewhere. Once the novelty factor wears off, all you're left with is just another strategy game. You can only combine two creatures to form another creature. It would definately be better if more than two creatures can be combined. There's a resource in the game, electricity, which I don't think even does anything. If you build a few lightning rods (they're really cheap too), the electricity will be increasing so much that you can basically ignore it and concentrate on mining coal.
