The NetStorm demo allows players a chance to familiarize themselves with the game's unique game mechanics and units in six early missions and three single-player campaign missions. Players can then test their wartime acumen in multiplayer mode as they challenge other players to dominate the skies through island-to-island warfare using a variety of storm-powered units including the Sun Cannon, Sun Barricade, the Whirligig and Disc Throwers.
NetStorm transports players to the world of Nimbus, an island in the sky which is their means to stratospheric domination. Using an array of fantastic weapons, players assault island after neighboring island as they attempt to capture each island's High Priest. Only by sacrificing enemy High Priests can players attain the knowledge to create more powerful weapons and rule the heavens.
