“A Nation of Wind” is a video game featuring elements of gameplay from both “Arena Shooters” (like Geometry Wars, Super Stardust, and Asteroids), and “Real Time Strategy” games, (such as Populous, Starcraft, and Actraiser). Set in a world of floating islands and airships, the player is tasked with commanding a ship and establishing/defending colonies. Players will be forced to deal with the bizarre creatures that come up from the lower atmospheres to wreak havoc on their airship and settlements, while appeasing the god’s of the land and eventually bending them to the player’s will. “A Nation of Wind” is currently developed by one intrepid artist, Jameson Wilkins. He is a freelancer with several years of experience in the browser and mobile gaming markets, and has studied game design and art the entirety of his life.

The idea of the cenario is very interesting, but the game gets boring really fast. The combat is weak and the game is pretty easy. If the ship is destroyed, nothing bad happens.

The management of the town and the capture of resources is a good point of the game, however the lack of "true enemies" makes it very monotonous.

Mediocre shooter. Extremely poor controls. Monotonous soundtrack gets old very fast. Gameplay is unexciting; the town building is boring, tedious and unfulfilling while the combat is just not fun. Your main gun fires only a few shots that do negligible damage and takes forever to recharge, forcing you to exclusively depend on your resource-consuming special weapons. Enemies come and destroy your settlement in seconds, before you can maneuver your painfully lumbering ship to save it with no warning. At least it was free.

Very well done for This type of game. Simple graphics that dont interfere with gameplay and in some ways make it look much more charming.Controls can be a little finicky but nothing too serious, though it takes some time to get a handle on it so you can do well in battle.
Needs a sandbox mode and a little more fleshed out tutorial for those looking to get into this game without jumping into it so fast.
Take the reigns of a quirky spaceship RTS in which you settle an area at a time and take out any enemies you come accross. Battles can be hard at first but when you win it feels that much better.
While I didnt expect much, to be honest, It gave me a sweet surprise. I reccommend this to anyone looking for something new that isnt just a rehashing of simplistic designs. I look forward to future updates.

So. Not only is Nation of Wind gorgeous but it's also more fun than a cat full of rainbows. It's challenging. You never really feel safe and OP (at least early on) which makes for some intense gameplay.

i enjoy the old fashioned graphics style, as well as the gameplay. the gameplay is difficult in a way so that it feels like the game isn't impossible, but just right. it just clicks in all the right ways, presses all the right buttons, ya know?
