Ugh, no. F11. We don't need gameplay changing ideas from other games, that makes Soldat unoriginal.

unoriginal you say?

I find it funny enough. ;| Fan works are always good, especially if there arent many of them.

Anyway, back to topic.. I kinda love the idea of sudden death, but it can be scripted.
As for rising water - it would require maps to support moving polygons and/or sceneries, which is not possible right now (and I doubt that it ever will be, though it's something worth adding). Plus again, this is an obvious worms rip-off which is no good.

Because the kids in Realistic Survival are just that cool, we actually played worms in Soldat on Nuubia.

It was just us with and m79, we had two 'actions'. We could use a full tank of jets, hop twice, or fire for each action. Then the next person went.

Fun times.

Exactly ;/
And the fact that soldat has guns like MP5 and Steyr doesn't make it a counter-strike rip-off. The fact that it's 2D doesn't make it a worms rip-off either. There's a ton of other games that are 2D and/or have similar weapons.
Soldat is only compared to those games because they're popular, so people who are not familiar with soldat will get a clearer picture of what it's like.

Don't forget Liero.

Honestly though, even though there are games which have similar elements, some of them can really differ from one another due to some special things.

Compare Soldat with Liero or some other similar game. How many 2D run & gun games allow you to:

1. Fly with jet boots
2. Backflip
3. Prone
4. Use a chainsaw as a melee weapon
5. Throw a knife

And many more other things.
