An amazing little godmode game, where you can handle the elements earth, water and lava. I think it's too small, only 15 levels, more like an advertising game. But the concept is quite good and challenging. On the one hand you have to protect your people from deadly floods, on the other hand their villages get burned down by fire caused by the lava. Sometimes you have to fight all the elements together at once. Then you should have the right strategie to survive...

I WISH I could play this game. But of course, Uplay locks me out of it. Their customer support is so abysmal YOU CAN'T EVEN LOG INTO THEIR SITE TO COMPLAIN TO THEM. DO NOT BUY THIS. You are HONEST TO GOD better off pirating this game. At the very least, you WILL ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO PLAY IT.
