includes a rolling demo, as the game is just plain fun to watch
Please, oh anything divine, let this be the IV game that finally is possible to launch as a screensaver somehow.

Swedish gaming magazine Super Play has done a 2 page review of Defcon.


All grades out of ten:



Graphics: 3 - Minimalistic and abstract perfection for esthets. (a bit strange grade since the reviewer speaks warmly of the graphics in the review)
Sound: 5 - A lonely melody plays against the background sound of nuclear explosions.
Control: 8 - You lean back with one hand on the mouse. You can do whatever you want with the other one.
Lifetime(bad translation): 7 - The best strategy game since Indians, Persians and Iranians arguod about who really invented chess.


Total score: 8/10

A french review of the game :

http://www.gamekult.com/tout/jeux/fiches/J000076370_test.html

it rates Defcon "good" (7/10) for single player games. And "Excellent" (9/10) for multiplayer.

Gratz Introversion for these reviews.




a quick translation (sorry my english is not very good) :

"Yes, it's still possible to make an addictive and fun game without next gen graphisms. Even if
the perspective to annhilate entire cities under atoms rain is nothing to laugh about, Defcon
still manage to make the immoral completly fun. With its gameplay that first seems simplistic,
but reveals treasure of strategy, its unique graphic style and an atmosphere to please the doctor strangelove that sleeping in us, the new game from the creator of Darwinia is a ludic UFO. Defcon is not a gadget : it's a real game, a fresh variation for the real time strategy genre. Deep but accessible, with great multiplayer, Defcon is an excellent surprise, maybe not the game to stick with all winter, but the ideal game for time to time play. There are really worth ways to spend 15 euros."


edit : for the translation
