It takes place in an imaginary world where there are no goodies and baddies, no real allies, only money. You must control the oil, fund & fight terrorism and do whatever it takes to liberate the entire planet. But don't panic, it's just a game.SHOCK AND AWESOME!------------------This is a strategy game like no other - your task is liberate the world and save it from the evil clutches of terrorism. Along the way, you can team up with other players and form superficial alliances, as long as they serve your interests. But fighting a global war of terror is a confusing pursuit. Not just confusing, but expensive too. The Liberation Machine takes a lot of oil, so it helps if you liberate the countries that are sitting on massive oil reserves first. And then there's terrorism. Awkwardly enough, you frequently end up funding the very terrorism you're trying to fight as you eradicate the greater threat posed by rogue empires (usually a former ally).War on Terror is the ultimate game of the ends justifying the means.WEAPON OF MASS DISTRACTION!--------------------------'War on Terror the application' is dripping in satirical humour and offers hours of subversive play. Here are some of the things that lie in store for you:- All original artwork by award-winning illustrator, Tom Morgan-Jones- Interactive world map, with 49 territories- Dynamic oil distribution (every game is different)- Advanced, reactive Artificial Intelligence- Anonymous terrorist funding- Original sound and music by Robert Taliesin Owen- Features the best song ever penned by the one-and-only Jarvis Cocker!- And perhaps the best credits screen in the history of video games- Much more to come ...DANGEROUS!----------"War on Terror" is based on the infamous, satirical board game of the same name. When it was originally released, "War on Terror the boardgame" was banned by toy fairs and classified "dangerous" by the police. These days, the board game has been recognised as an important piece of satire and has been accepted into the permanent collections of the Bodleian Library and the Imperial War Museum, amongst others. It is probably the first board game in history to be branded criminal by the police and exhibited in a major art gallery within the same year.TERRORBULL!-----------Terrorbull Games is an independent game design & publishing studio, based in Cambridge, England.

    After beating it once, I feel little imperative to do so again, an odd turn of circumstances given that War on Terror was derived from a board game.

    Wonky mechanics and no multiplayer support at launch mean that this boardgame may end up gathering dust in the cupboard until an update is deployed.
