Top Tier strategy gaming

Hands done the best Async PvP strategy game on mobile. If chess is your thing and you want something different, this is it, hands down. Additionally the Dev is one of the nicest and open minded I have ever met in my life. This game will take off mark my word, get ahead of the curve

Cool Concept but too easy

I immediately started playing the AI on hard difficulty and I love the game and the focus on action economy, but there is simply to challenge even on hard difficulty level.

Please make this game a little more challenging so that I fell like I am accomplishing something when I win. The other game by this developer has exceptional challenge on the higher difficulty levels, so not sure why they made this one so easy.

Other than that, I like this game and look forward to updates that will make it more fun a rewarding to play.
