So there I was, Right? So very, very close to achieving what only Abe and Molloy have ever achieved. I was about a half dozen reviews away from dominating the front page. Ever review with the name Postal on it. Then Downside showed up. Not that I mind other reviewers and it is refreshing to see someone else digging through the que, but I was so close...

Anyway, this game owns and let me tell you why: This game has it all. Jibes, Taunts, Roaching, Bombing, Commanders doing the D-gun dance, and atlases flying around like frantic geese scared up by hunting dogs. The two Finnish players almost seem like they're not playing seriously when you see some of the things that happen. They throw the standard book of TA out the window and just improvise.

The game continues with: Narrow escapes by both commanders, flying and swimming invaders, pelicans. All of this happens and not a single Skeet gets built. Bizarre.

Its really not a big game though. There aren't massive armies, or huge amounts of resource. In fact it seems like no one gets control of more than one island throughout th entire game. Its practically a madhouse. The game is dominated by the Thunder. Both players bomb everything: Wind, mexes, Missile towers, Pelicans, Commanders, Labs, Invaders, Atlases, Construction vehicles... Nothing is exempt from the Thunder's swift justice.

So before I add yet another colon followed by a list you should try this: Download the game, watch it, be amused, and wonder why anyone would want to live in a place where its balls cold for half the year like these two do.

Basically, this game rules and you should download it. Its just that much fun to watch.
