The War Of the Flea

Nano War: Infectious Flash Fun. Colonize blobs, send swarms, and win superior numbers. Free multi-player and level editor. Dangerously addictive.

Found via this post. It ate up my entire Thursday and I felt the need to share.

I think no one is commenting because everyone is busy playing this fabulous game. Good find!

Both Nano War and Phage Wars were far too easy.

and such small portions!

Level ten is a bitch.

Did anyone else have horrendous lag problems? I gave up eventually because it took me 3-5 seconds to get a single move to occur, which meant by level 7 I couldn't react quickly enough to the computer.

The lag may be every mefite on the west coast blowing the last hour at work away.

If you sign up, you get the level editor and multi-player. I'm not suggesting people go and make maps for my amusement. I am demanding it.

Great game. Yes and Yes.

if it doesn't load on the original site, as it didn't for me, can someone tell me if this is the same game?

It is Severian.

I'm not clear on how to get past level 10. The difficulty level increased about tenfold from level 9.

Ah, never mind. I didn't understand the multi-click functionality.

Swarm of death,. 10th level is a bitch, yet the rest are kinda easy. 10 depends on acting quick and chance. It's a dick level, but the others are more developed.

OH! and seletecting "editor" allows you to play anyone else's map. In case you wanted more.


goes off to create map

er, Protip: your goal is to destroy the red team, not collect the most amount of bubbles. The computer isn't as aggressive as a human foe, and will often fall back. Steady, low-level swarms will protect your bubbles and act as offensive.


whew.

Very cool. At first I thought, "This is too simple to be interesting." But once multi-select and multiple cells were involved, I was hooked.

13 is vicious. I've tried it four or five times!

Well I just blew a large part of my friday night beating it. Good stuff.

Finally beat the game! Awesome.

Superb. Loved it. Had to restart a couple of levels (damn AI thinking faster than I could), but loved it. The mid-air collisions, the sneaking behind enemy lines to steal their biggest bubbles...excellent.

Grrr. Stuck on 14. Strategy advice?

It is, but it lacks multi-player, the level editor and oddly, being able to send more than 50% of your bubble's horde. The original site's version is much more stable. Do you have the latest edition of flash?
