Add a button that lets you fire back

Yeah it would definitely add more pressure and intensity if you could add a button that lets you fire back so that you would be in the shoes of the actual president having to make a choice either to fire back or sit it out on the assumption that's it's a false alarm

Good Message, Ruined by Impossible Difficulty

The message is good, the difficulty is almost certainly impossible. Little more is learned from this app except frustration and a defeatist attitude.

If the game is able to be beaten, I’ll eat my words. But I’ve played it ten times with various different tactics and none of them worked out.

The issue is, if the game is saying “this is a problem that cannot be fixed”, there’s no incentive to play more than once and even less to try and resolve what is being presented by this app as an unsolvable crisis.

Finally beat it!!

Okay so after many failed attempts I finally got around to the happy ending of removing all nuclear warheads off hair trigger! To say the least, this game will leave you frustrated and you’ll feel amazing once you beat it. Love how they intertwined factual events into the game! You’ll enjoy it and learn a little something as well!
