NetStorm v10.51c Description:
is a real-time, action strategy game played across the Internet, in which you must capture enemy High Priests and sacrifice them to the Furies to gain knowledge and power. Your battleground is Nimbus, a mythical world comprised of floating islands in the sky, and violent weather conditions. Each tribe of the bitterly divided Nimbian people lives on its own island; one of them is yours. Each island has its own Temple, dedicated to one of the three opposing Furies (Rain, Wind and Thunder).
Your sole aim is to capture and sacrifice enemy High Priests, and to help your own Nimbian tribe protect its powerful High Priest. The more priests that are sacrificed, the more the Furies smile upon your tribe and grant additional Knowledge. This newly acquired learning helps build bigger, more powerful units with which you continue your struggle to dominate the skies.
The most advanced Internet multi-player features are built into NetStorm. The game design ensures that players experience virtually no lag, even during intense eight player gameplay. If you ever lose your Internet connection, simply log back onto the server and NetStorm will allow you to jump right back into the action --your pieces will have continued to fight for you.
The NetStorm server automatically places you in an arena with other players of comparable skill level. And it's easy to find friends and former opponents. Just click on another player's island to mark them as a friend. Whenever you log on to the server, the game will let you know which of your friends are currently logged on and eager to fight.
You can download optional music files from the author's Web site.
