Quick and addicting real-time strategy. Beautiful, not-so-simple, just awesome.

Control your army of ant-like ships. Capture connected enemy bases (remember that you can't simply capture a non-connected base - this would be too easy!) You win when you control everything, you lose when you lose everything. Good luck!

Works really well on...
