Support the FSA! Even if it can be based on chance, it feels like a new fight every time. These sort of games ought to be developed for other current and past events.
Good idea, limited in scope An admirable attempt to raise awareness of the Syria conflict, but certainly an oversimplification. There seems to be little room for the player to actually impact the outcome of the game, and after a few plays it feels repetitive. Adding more events and factions, and increasing the amount of real-world info given to users would improve the experience.
Good idea, bad implementation I like the Idea of processing the events in form of a game. There is much potential in this. Only, the game lacks depth. And/or information about the game mechanics. Is there a way to increase the chance of getting support by different nations or is the collection of cards you draw just plain chance? Has the loss of civilian lives any influence on the game? There are many things, that happen and it is hard to know, which are the consequences of player decisions and which are just plain luck. If the game is meant to help the player understand these events, it should give more insight into the mechanics behind it.
Good game, But needs to be able to be able to make cards larger as they are hard to read. I love the idea, good way to raise awareness of the problem in syria. Not my kind od war game but this is good. (Would like to see a more realistic wartime strategy, like Civilization and Romance of the Three Kingdoms.)
Basic card game but has potential There is potential for an unbiased app to make decisions on real world events, to educate on all countries involved in the war and current airstrikes. Make quiz like decisions, with the odd historic fact here and there. Implementing the card game with it+on screen help as to what might affect actions. To realise that all governments are all out there for their own gain,and even if one major oil smuggling IS terror group is destroyed, that war breeds hate, and just moves the rest of the aggressors to the top
More of a Wigdet Than a Game There's not much of a game here. Each playthrough is based more on chance than strategy, and the gameplay itself is kind of like a standard head to head card game, with random events popping up each round. NarcoGuera was a better game (at least it had some replayability), with its Risk-style gameplay. EG is basically just a political commentary wrapped in an perfunctory game shell. This is less of a game, but more of a widget. Skip this one, it's not worth the data.
Version 2.0.1 adds support for more Android devices - thanks!
Updated! Version 2.0 adds newer events from the ongoing conflict including Scud Missile strikes and the enhanced fears over WMDs.
If you have version 1.0 or 1.1 of the game, please install this version and delete the older version - thanks!
