This game is criminally underrated. I love the strategy and planning involved in the game. The only problem is the lack of players, with there only been 100+ downloads. I still think it's really cool that there's multiplayer though and love just checking in to see if my opponent has completed their turn or not. Overall, great game from some of my favorite game developers!

Super cool concept and it gives me XCOM vibes. However single player vs. CPU appears to be broken. The game always hangs up on the computer's turn, so you cannot finish a game. Would love to see that fixed so I can update this to a 5-star review. Due to it being a small game there's not a lot of online play yet so single player definitely needs to be addressed. Kudos to the developer for a cool foundation to a game.

Hi Sean, thanks for the review! We've recently released an update that fixed the bugs with single player vs. CPU games, so they shouldn't hang anymore. Let me know if you continue to have any issues with it.

An excellent tactics game with a fair price tag, online and offline game modes, fun mechanics, and varied play styles. The developers are also very responsive on their Discord server. My only complaint is graphics are fairly rudimentary, even for pixel art, but this is easily overlooked since the gameplay is outstanding. A strong recommendation for turn-based strategy fans!
