Ratings and Reviews
Thoughtful take on a complex topic and an engaging game too!
Despite the simple interface, there’s quite a lot to this game. Learning it is a real joy as you’re forced to grapple with some real life decisions where the morally “right” answer might cause more problems than a messy compromise. The game’s economy is pretty well balanced too and I constantly find myself wanting to buy two or three upgrades, but only having the money for one. It forces you to prioritize, which is really the meat of the game. The push and pull between the military affairs in the war and the civilian “hearts and minds” is excellently captured, as committing too much to one of the other will result in a mission loss from the other. It’s all about striking the right balance.
That being said, there is an optimal build/tactic order in the game, and once you figure it out, the game becomes relatively trivial even on the hardest difficulty. But, there are plenty of achievements to go after. And, the bonus maps they’ve been adding to the game include extra stressors that can mix it up even the dominant strategy.
Best of all, this is a game with unlocks! You can shortcut them with money, but if you want to see everything for only your initial buy in, that’s possible! Highly recommend on that business practice alone.
Good Game, nerf insurgents
The game is extremely well polished, the design is simple and strong. But the insurgents are way too powerful. When I block out insurgents from escaping and have another unit destroying them they push on my blocking units. Once they get repelled the insurgents don’t go back to where they came from, they just walk through my troops like nothing happened. Also, it is extremely annoying (and unfair) that once I stop insurgents in one area and make sure for the red goes away I relocate my troops to stop the next insurgents, 5 seconds later they just reappear at the area I just cleared. And now my reputation is down halfway. Also, the mountain map’s descriptions says that the only way around is through the valley, a whole bunch of lies. The game would be more interesting if you can’t travel through mountains (neither can insurgents) So the choke point would actually be important to take, the mountains are a huge pain to deal with.
Edit: Thank you for responding, Ndemic. I really love your games and find them a fun but challenging experience. They work the brain in ways I never thought were possible. Also, After beating the mountain level I’ve noticed that I had been doing it wrong the whole time. Also, I’m not the best tactician so that might have contributed.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear that you're having some trouble with the game. We're here to help where we can! Try searching our Reddit to see if other players have any advice for you.
This game will not able to profit by just selling $1.99. So many elements are involved. Governmental problems like corruption, reputation, and civil support are involved. Military factors like civil army and united army are involved. You can also use tons of fun tactics in response to the local landscape. It’s also fun to find a perfect balance between civil hope and government requirements in your way to the union. You can literally do EVERYTHING in this $1.99 game!
Edit: The game is absolutely awesome, but I do have few suggestions. First, you can create a situation, where the insurgents could be tactical and ending up eliminating player’s army. However, the insurgents are still too overpowered, and they don’t seem like they could be tamed at all without the players’ tactics. In addition, you could add plagues in the game, which could make the game more complex. And also, in easy and normal mode, the corruption doesn’t do any harm to the gaming experience, and I wish you could make corruption more impactful, too. Lastly, I hope that the players could have more freedom, and they get to choose where they build the fortress, and at what time they need to discuss with the insurgents. But still, great game! I hope my comment could be seen by the game makers. You are absolutely awesome :)
