Give suitable titles for my (hopefully) next mini-game (or ZOD will pay you a visit!)

So, I got more than a couple Amiga related mini-games in the works, but paused the others and started a new one (damn me!), it's a Dune 2 mini-game.

The idea for this game is:

1. You got two minutes to build your base with the credits you have at your disposal.
2. There will be no production time.
3. When time is up, and/or you press the "start battle" button, the fight begins.
4. Your goal is to stay alive as long as possible... the longer = more score.

So, it's a survival game, and you can't win

I havn't decided on everything yet, I make stuff up as I go

Some quick ideas for titles:

Thinking of "Dune - Defender".... "Dune: The Defender"... or something like that....

Hmmm

Dune: The Inevitable Defeat!
Dune: Go Out In Blaze And Glory!
Dune: Make It Count

meh.. donno :P. If ya want a backstory, it could be:

"You have been fighting for control of Dune against Ordos and Atreides (as u play as harkonnen in my game) but now you are down to your last resources. Defeat is inevitable! Try to take as many with you as you can!"

or something.... sad, yes :P.... as harkonnen actually are the strongest of the houses....... well, think it's suitable anyway as you CAN'T win in this mini game :P... so...

Dune: The Battle For Fail


think that's a nice one.... hmm....


or maybe someone can come up with a suitable abbreviation.. like "Dune: Dying Is Like Death Ofc" making: "Dune: DILDO" :P

or is that death is like dying? (the other way around?

Well, I love the title.. but the player is the one who will get PWNED, so the player can't take any bases.... but hmm.... think that title could also work the other way around.... like "your base" is the players "are belong to us" is the CPU that will crush the player.. so


WE HAVE A WINNER!

unless someone post a better one sometime :P.. the game is far from finished... so, lots of time to choose... but think this one will be it



ps, no need to link to a explanation place... think most of us know that phrase already ..... at least I did.

Yeah, like the CPU is coming with all its units to the player's base, just to "chill out".. then the player gets but-raped...

Hehe, what did I won then? :P

Yeah, I guess 99% of people knew it already...but just anticipated potential people asking by posting the link.

Actually I was thinking it "the other way around" too...the CPU attacks the player, so should be the CPU assault line

Could be written on screen when the game begins as a kind of "ready steady go"
