War of the Web Flash Game Review

Link: War of the Web
Developer: Jiggman
Genre: Management/Strategy/Multiplayer
FlashMush Rating: 7.5/10

Ever think about the main flash game portals and if they were in an actual war with one another? Well, War of the Web just took that thought into reality! And made an extremely unique flash game concept.

You see, in War of the Web, the game plays like the title and my intro paragraph suggest. Different flash game portals are pitted against one another. So depending on where you play, depends on what team you are on. The five different teams are Kongregate (The Kongs), New Grounds (Neo Geo), ArmorGames (Armora), Facebook (F.A.C.E.) and Jiggman (The Jiggs). I find this incredible as it is the first game I've seen that takes a multiplayer concept but makes it site specific and increases camaraderie among like minded portal goers.

The gameplay is simple but confusing as a proper in-game tutorial is lacking. Basically it plays as a time management (can only do a certain amount of moves every minute) strategy game where you build various types of buildings such as barracks, armories, HQs, etc. Which of course do various things. The goal is to then be the first team to send a rocket to Mars but of course you can attack the opponents to steal resources and keep them from reaching Mars. It requires teamwork whether you want to or not and I really like that aspect in a flash game as I feel it's never been done before.
