It's cloudy with a chance of victory in the new realtime strategy game, Cloud Wars, by Staal Media. You're a cutesy little cloud who, over time, accumulates cumulus matter to grow into a more dominating form. Click and drag from a cloud unit you possess to another one to send half of your fluffy, puffy units to bring a torrential downpour upon your dastardly enemies 'pink' and 'yellow'. Should you chance upon a star, send a single unit zipping over to it to earn upgrade points which you can spend on enhancing the speed, capacity or creation rate of a cloud of your choosing. But keep in mind, if your enemy takes over your little nimbus, they'll keep that upgrade for themselves.
At 15 levels, Cloud Wars is a nice 'rainy day' game for strategy fans, while the simple layout and three difficulty settings leave it accessible for people who aren't as familiar with this Risk-like genre. With the cutesy, colorful graphics and emoting cloud faces, it's easy to fall into the illusion that you're just playing with bubbles and cotton balls rather than sending microscopic water molecule soldiers into battle. To arms my dipolar friends!
