There's bound to be trouble

Advantages: Hours of fun, makes you think.
Disadvantages: Hard to learn, and hard to get into.

I bought Stars! from Electronics Boutique several months ago. It was quite expensive, at £2.99 (ahem) but was the best £2.99 I’ve ever spent. Seriously. I wasn’t expecting much from it. I picked it up because it was cheap and looked OK It was publi ...

A Good Rival For C&C Generals

Advantages: Strangely Addictive, Runs well even on lower spec machines, Very short learning curve
Disadvantages: None That I Can Think Of
