Fun section:


  • Venn:
    • Turn based, DIAF.
    • Thought the the simultaneous turns thing would be kinda neat, nope.
    • It’s simplified to the point where I knew what to do.
    • Casual TBS.
    • Not ugly, simple to pick up, priced to sell.
    • If this genre is not your business don’t expect this to be the one that changes you mind.
  • Jordan: 
    • This game is a wee convoluted
    • You can only move one unit per turn
    • Each unit has a passive ability it does each turn anyways, such as moving, shooting, etc
    • Each player inputs their shit at the same time, so you can bluff and predict, sort of
    • The most effective strategy I found was try and hold the center for a long as possible and failing that, stall until enough people have rezzed that you can just send a dude through
    • Honestly, I’d like to see more characters with varied strategies. There are just a bunch of heroes who just aren’t good
    • OF course, this is all against the AI
    • Nobody’s playing this
    • I like the turn based strategy aspect, but that’s about it
  • Pedro: 
    • The biggest problem with this online tactical duel game, it’s that no one else is playing it.
    • And the reason no one is playing it is because there’s one winning strategy, it’s not about tactics it’s about picking the winning team and not deviating from that formation.
    • At least, that’s what the AI can do.
    • There’s no way to tell if it’d be different against other players because there’s no one else.
    • But it is unlikely it would be much different.
    • The game has had no updates since May, there’s no meta-shift to keep things interesting, there’s nothing.
    • And that is unfortunate!
    • Because it’s a vicious cycle of nope, now.
    • The devs won’t update the game because no one is playing it. Players won’t return to the game because it’s not getting updated. Rinse, repeat!
