You are the commander of an elite Strike Team aboard the warship, HYDRA. Your first combat mission will have you leading your team in vicious ship-to-ship battles against the Sethari, a mysterious alien race whose soldiers are genetically bred for war.

In this tactical role playing game, you are the commanding officer of a squad of soldiers from the far future. Command each warrior and use cover, suppressive fire, advanced weapons and iron will to defeat the enemy. Always outnumbered, your soldiers will depend on your tactical brilliance to prevail.

• COVER: Use barricades and barrels as cover for your soldiers. Less conventional force fields and tachyon fields can also grant a tactical edge to those that hold them.

• SUPPRESSION: Use suppressive fire to pin enemy soldiers in place before finishing them off in close assault or with a well-placed grenade.

• ACTION POINTS: Every action, including movement, attacks and special abilities, requires action points. Spend them wisely to achieve victory.

• MORALE: Your soldiers and the enemy are affected by their courage and determination. If the battle goes well, they fight with grit and determination. If it goes badly, they will focus more on saving themselves than the mission at hand.

Play through a campaign featuring 28 intense firefights including various mission objectives and grueling boss fights. An additional 20 combat missions are available to hone your skills.

*** Requires an iPhone 5, iPad 3, iPad Mini 3 or newer. Will not work on earlier devices.

A new title

Written on: December 9, 2018
I bought this game yesterday( December 8, 2018) after being a year of its release. Since i waited so long, it has increased in updates so i can review the game initially.
Firstly, It seems the game is more animated this time around than the previous 2 games,
( Demons rise 1 and 2) and the graphics have been the most noticeable.
Secondly, This game feels like a direct inspiration of Xcom in regards to the combat and competitiveness of the A.I down to the storyline and setting.
Finally, While this game focuses on tightly controlled combat, the characters are also tightly controlled to only 12 playable characters.
All in all, This game picks its paunches wises as it still gives you the sense of player freedom via the characters, but also it feels like it is a game all on its own with its firefights.. even though it feels like Xcom!
I will give another review once i complete the game

Casual and fun

This game is a home run as I love strategy and sci-fi. Developers keep adding better control over gameplay. Most recent was the undo move option [Big Thank you]! I have not completed all of the campaign as of yet but enjoy the synopsis of what story is driven. Keep up the great work developers!
