Nuclear War


In 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.

Nuclear War simply WILL NOT run on most of the earlier S3 video chipsets ... it will crash with a fatal exception error every time.
