    Leaders of several countries and continents are arguing. People are speaking of a new Cold War. Yet thousands of civilians in eastern Ukraine are facing a war that is anything but "cold", every day. One million people are on the run. During the many fights there have been more than 5000 casualties, yet some research speaks numbers ten times higher.

    In Battle of Donetsk you are the leader who plays with the lives of these people. You determine the stakes. Can you win?

    Battle for Donetsk is a war game with an anti-war message. It's a confronting "topical game", developed by the independent game studio LuGus Studios. With this game
    LuGus Studios does not wish to take a political stance and doesn't idealise violence and conflicts. Instead, we hope the game will create a strong awareness of the conflict in Ukraine and that its sobering character will be food for thought.

    TWoM it Isn't. This game is one of those "Single Line" Strategy games where two factions with bases on either side of the screen deploy troops and powers to push across the No Man's Land to the other base. While others have put spins on the genre- like Warfare 1917/44, this one plays it very straight. But it does it very well. The graphics are good, the play is good and bug free, each unit and power has its' place, the ability and it all comes together very well. The main quirk-is that the game starts in a "ceasefire" mode. I won't spoil it. Problems are that the buy buttons are not labeled, so you might not know what you're getting until you buy, there are no unit stats post game (solider deaths don't matter?) and that FIRST AID DROPS end the ceasefire. Regarding the message... I suggest a good counter is the late, great RJ Rummel. Suffice it to say, the violence and destruction caused by a despotic regime are often greater than that caused fighting. it. PS: As the descendant of Il Duce's victims, those who call the Ukrainian government Fascist do not know what Fascist means.
