Abandonware DOS title

Nuclear War

Nuclear War is an abandoned turn-based strategy game designed by Eric Hyman and Jon Van Caneghem. Nuclear War was developed and released by New World Computing in 1989 for Amiga and, later, for DOS, and it's loosely based on a card game of the same name. Nuclear War took a satirical approach to the grim possibility of a global nuclear war and succeeded in creating the right mood and (simplified) gameplay, in contrast to more realistic and serious strategy games.
