Screenshots

Uprising: Join or Die Windows One bomber just released its payload over an enemy building. The first bomb is a bit off and did not deal much damage but the three others are just above and will be enough to destroy the building.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows You can place up to 3 turrets in a citadel perimeter. Each can be either a SAM turret (anti-aircraft, especially bombers) or a laser turret (anti-ground units mainly).
Uprising: Join or Die Windows A citadel under attack will emit an alert and blink in the satellite view. Medium/high (yellow/red) damage should quickly be fixed. Citadels have different numbers of slots for buildings.
Uprising: Join or Die Windows The imperial core, the final objective, has a protective energy barrier, as powerful as a K-sat attack, quickly travelling along a defined path (yellow arrows). Cross it and you die.
