I finished the game. It only has six or so missions. Overall it was enjoyable and pretty easy to play. Dont know what the fuss is about since it is "FREE". Wish it did have more missions though.

this game has poor interface options. This game was lacking the performance neede by gamers or by anyone who wants to play agame but has too many steps to go through to play this game. In my opinion this game needs a major upgrade before it should have been released.

#66 - JPJ Only 2 people can cut the wire; 'Herbert' or 'Guiness'. Send one of them up first, towards the right near the breech in the wall.

You may not see this since this is from yesterday. I will check the Forums in case their is a thread there about the same issue.

I like the game. I wasn't here the last time it was offered. I spent a couple of hours last night playing it and feel it is overall a good game. Thank you

Unfortunate that the resolution cannot be changed and it cannot be run in a window. I would have liked it but for that.

Very nice game this one and a game that will give hours of game play
everything worked but there are one little thing "The scrolling" that
seam to stuck a bit while moving the screen after a bit of game play
so for future I would suggest an update patch for that for them who
buy it later as it will take away the lag if you are on a 128MB graphic
card like me -my card is not great- but other then that nothing seam
wrong...Like the history of WW2 so it is very nice game.
Thank You.

I would like to update my earlier post (55). The game does get a little better as you go along. I am still on Mission 2 (took a break for a while) and have learned that there is a 'some' strategy to it. I was also wrong :oops: about exiting part way through a mission. If you quit and come back to the game later, you are returned to your last completed 'objective' not your last completed 'mission'. I am currently stuck on the 3rd objective in Mission 2, but I will try again. :)

Wonderful! An original game in the style of ‘Cannon Fodder’ with updated graphics! I’m having problems with the interface but will persevere.

The controls are very tricky at times to figure out. The raft scene is do-able - it’s just a case of clicking on the darned thing and very carefully positioning your mouse in the correct (straight) direction. Selecting the soldier of choice is also difficult (select a soldier, and whilst he is no longer selectable of course, the others all switch position in the menu making it a bit trial-and-error at times). Still, as this is a turn-based game, this is no real handicap and just takes patience. However, I STILL can’t get the hang of one soldier ‘giving’ to another (such as courage). The controls could perhaps have been better, but I like this game and will persevere with it.

I agree with others here: I like to choose where to install. I don’t like games commandeering my hard disk and landing themselves on my C: drive when I want to install it elsewhere. All in all though, a decent game - thanks for this, GGAOTD!

You know, I could understand people complaining about problems running this game under Vista if it said "Vista" in the system requirements. It doesn't. It says "Windows 2000/Me/NT/XP" - not a word about Vista.

I know, I know - I've gotten some programs that didn't say "Vista" in the system requirements to run fine under Vista. But not all of them by a long shot, and some of the ones that will run don't always work like they should. (e.g. Age of Japan II, which runs fine on Vista as long as you leave it full screen - try to put it in a window and it crashes)

Anyway, if it doesn't say "Vista-compatible" in the description then don't be surprised when it doesn't work on Vista. And I sure wouldn't advise running some of these utilities we've been getting lately on a Vista system unless it specifically says they're Vista-compatible. Anyone who runs something like a registry cleaner designed for XP on a Vista machine is braver than I am.

Doesn't let you choose an install directory. Automatically installs to C drive. I much prefer my games on D and apps on F drive.
Otherwise thankyou for a great game, and the fantastic job that you guys are doing here.

Refused to install the first time when run from Vista, yet the GOTD installer failed to spot that it hadn't install and still tried to install shortcuts. Something for the GOTD people to fix.

Second time, I installed it by running the installer with "Run As Administrator", and it worked. Something for Merscom to fix, it's unacceptable to need administrator privileges to install a game.

Then when the game ran, the graphics resolution was messed up. The game was running fullscreen but all I was seeing was the top left corner of the screen stretched out over my entire monitor. I assumed there would be options to fix this in the game menu, but alas the game menu was positioned such that I could not see it, or click on it. Thus I was not even able to quit. Alt-F4 managed to close it down eventually. Something for the developers to fix.

Something for me to fix? Yeah, I just uninstalled a game which doesn't install properly, and doesn't run properly. That's ten minutes of my life I'll never get back.

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

Downloaded very slow (dial-up speed and I have DSL), not sure why. I will have to do some checking into that.

Graphics and sound are OK, not great.

Gameplay is rather boring, simply follow the instructions on where to click and when to click. No real strategy involved unless it comes in the later missions. You have to finish each mission level to save your progress. For example, if you exit in the middle of Mission 2 you have to start at the beginning of Mission 2 when you return to the game.

I only finished Mission 1 and failed Mission 2 so I may not be a good judge of the game but it is not a game I plan on spending much time on. Also, I agree with earlier comments about being able to install the game where I want it, not where it wants. It should be MY choice.

I do applaud GGOTD in it's variety of offerings lately. Thanks! :)

Loved the game. Very simplistic gameplay and lack of an undo button make this less appealing in some ways.

Very nice game. It takes awhile to get the game play down. I spent 4 hours playing the 2nd mission.

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

A very nice game IMHO, thanks for offering it! My only real gripes are with the installer, which installs silently right into the Program Files (on the boot drive, and not on my much less crowded other disk), and the crashes (though only when changing missions so far, hence it's just a minor annoyance).

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

Fred, I can only hope that what you meant to say was, "Suzanne, if you're very new to the internet and computers, you really have to be very careful as to what 'free' programs you download because they can really be harmful to your computer and create huge problems for you. However, you can be quite comfortable downloading games from GAOTD as long as you read the comments and take other people's issues into consideration."

That said, Suzanne, never be afraid to ask; it's how we all learned.

Good game and great installation on XP SP2. I like turn-based games and even though war themes aren't a favorite, the variety is there and for that, as always, I thank GAOTD.

#14, Susan, here’s how for XP.
1) To make a shortcut, simply open the file that the game has been installed in. Right click on the (Game Name here.exe)Its the fourth menu up Label "Create Shortcut" or
2) Drag and drop Holding the rigth mouse buttom to where you want it to be placed Munu will apear "Create Shortcuts here"
3) Open your My Computer, On the Address Bar type the Location of the File where you place the game.
Suggestion write down the address (e.g. “C:\games\[game-name]”), before you complete the installation. or place it in notepad where you can just copy and past the address.
then use step one or two above.
4) If you want to have a copy of the .exe file, Right click and use step two "Copy here"
5) If you want to move the .exe file Right click and use step two "Move here" (Not needed will mess up the game and less space on Hard drive with this things every where.)

- If you want to rename the shortcut icon.
1) You can right-click your new shortcut and select Rename to make it look a little cleaner. or
2) double click on the name of the shortcut icon (not the picture of the icon)
I’ll give this one a pass
have fun playing

#14 - Here is a short description on how to create a shortcut.

first of all, when you are installing one of these programs, make sure you make a note of where the installer is putting the program. It will ask you where you want to install the program and suggest a directory. Just note the directory mentioned like #17 suggested.

1) On your desktop, there should be an icon called "My Computer" or Suzzanne's Computer, or whatever you called it when you first set it up. Double click on the icon and a window will open showing hard disk drives and removable drives on your system.

2) Double click "Local Disk (C)" and you will be presented with a list of all the folders on your system. Look for the folder that the game installer told you it was installing to. Perhaps it is C:/games/"game-name.exe" - If your system is configured to show file extensions, there will be a .exe at the end of the correct file name. If not, then "game-name" will be the one.

3) Right mouse click the file name and drag (with your right mouse button depressed) the file to your desktop. Release the right mouse button and a window should pop up asking if you want to copy, move, or create a shortcut for the file. Just select "create a shortcut" and you are in business.

You can right click the icon shortcut that was put on your desktop and on the menu that pops up, choose "rename" and then rename the shortcut whatever you want.

This is a great website. I have been checking it daily for almost a year and it has pointed me to some great games or time wasters... :) depending on how you look at it. If a game turns out to be worthwhile, I will buy for the grandkids to play on their computers. I enjoy reading the other's comments because they always help me decide which ones I might want to check out or take a pass on. This particular offering is not the kind of game I would play so I will take a pass this time. I happen to like the puzzle and word games, myself. Being retired, I like to keep my mind sharp with this kind of activity.

Lmao @ people taking this "Fred" guy seriously.
Oh really, he's rude? Welcome to the world of the interwebs!

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

Graphics are nice enough and it downloaded and installed with no issues either.

I would be tempted to call this a turn based puzzle game, but I only got to the raft part before I quit, so maybe the rest of the game is strategy based. My first impression was that multi players puzzle solving, not planning strategy against each other.

Not my cup of tea, but I don't fault it for that. If you are into puzzles solving then I say give this a try.

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

I vote this a thumbs down just because of the installation process. I was never given a choice as to where I wanted the game to be installed. It installs in the c:\programs folder. I install all of my games in c:\games folder. I think it is extremely rude of a company to assume they know where you want a game to be installed. I cut and pasted the game to my folder of choice but I think this should be an option in any and every installition process. Thank you GGAOTD team for the game. Merscom LLC... thank you but please adjust your install process to be more user friendly.

I find that this game is annoying.
I download, install, successfully activated it, and when I run it, it give me an error screen : Access is Denied.

Sorry, thumbs down.

I had problems trying to d/l. When I click to d/l, the box comes up OK, but when I click on "save" the box quickly fades; and I have no idea what happened to the d/l. I did a search for and could find it no where on my computer. I also tried the "open" option and nothing happens.

I think there must be a problem with the d/l.

To play this game on interrupted... turn off many running un-necessary programs in the background, even turn off internet connection and antivirus program (after you scan the drives for viruses)..

Oooooh, thank god its back...... I love that game, but I lost it due to reformating the hard drive..
Thanks GGOTD... I'll be happy sniping away on this...

Fred, your comment to Suzanne is totally uncalled for. Unless you were born knowing how to use a computer, you had to learn too. I sincerely hope that this site and the sister site, help people to learn. The stupidest people that I know all think that they know everything already.

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

This game did not allow me to choose where I want to install this game. If this is on purpose so that I do not get to play the game after I reinstall Windows, then its a very bad move.
I really should have the option to select where I want to install my softwares.
Please look into this and give us this option in the future, please.
Thank you for the free game.

#32 Fred, that was a mean thing to say to her...:(. Perhaps you should re-read her entire comment; then you might be able to understand the reason for her dilemma. ;)

Wow Fred how rude!

comments.reply   |  –  11 years ago  –  comments.useful comments.yes | (0)

This installation does create shortcut on my XP computer desktop.
My game play progress does saved on each exit.

This game is not really a free action war game, ie, you can not make your own strategy of attack. It is more like a adventure game on a war based story, players need to go through predefined path.

The play controls could be batter if a visiable tag (show status like 32/36) could be add to each playable person on the field and right-clicking the tag opens the tools and actions available at near by locaion. This way would reduce identity checking and lots mouse movements.

FRED That was rude! Maybe since you don't have any consideration, maybe you should keep your mouth shut.

Great game GGOTD. Thank you!

Ok. #32 that was a bit harsh. We all started knowing nothing. All of us had to learn. That she's willing to ask and learn is a big plus. No need to put her down.
