Sir cucumber ,

This game is a gem!

There are so few smart asynchronous tactics game, and even fewer on mobile. The developers are responsive, the player community is crushing me (in a good way) and I am grateful that this game exists.

Great Game :)

It is kind of like if chess had fewer pieces and the pieces all had different guns and they were all in space. Very fun.

Fantastic game!

I love the art style and strategy games are among my favorites! It’s like playing a pixel version of XCOM.
