Seems to me, from the links, that Soldat is a game that combines elements from the games Abuse and Worms. Straightforward enough.

However, there's no Mac version, so I won't get to test out this intriguing concept.

Hey, speaking of games, this is neato, in a retro-80's kinda way. And also if you worship Brak, as I do.

Stavros: Have autographed pictures of the old Space Ghost: Coast to Coast framed on my wall, including Brak. And, no, I did NOT make them myself...

Sideview games rock. Kind of like the old days of Out Of This World and Prince of Persia

I'll have to check out 'Soldat' when I'm at home this evening. That said, 'Worms' and it's sequels absolutely rule. I've whiled away many an hour playing 'Worms World Party' against friends, each of us grabbing the phone and calling the other in moments of triumph or frustration.

Soldat is a pretty sweet game. The great thing about it is you can play online multiplayer over the Internet. I think of it as a 2D version of Counter-Strike (it rips a bunch the guns...), that is a lot simpler to play.

stbalbach, thank you, thank you, thank you for reminding me of the existence of Out of This World. I lost a good chunk of my teenage days playing this game and somehow the memories about it were deleted. What a great game it was.

It wasn't, however, as good as Flashback. Flashback RULED.

flashback only ruled because you got a job... in the early 90's, for a video game, how frickin' cool was that?

Have been playing this for a while now. Badass game. It's extremely rare for me to have a game for more than two days and still think it should ever have been created in the first place, much less over a month. Glad to see it linked here. Maybe now I'll have some Americans to play against.
