Perfectly Paced Strategy Game
P1 Select might be my favorite game from Michael Brough. Other candidates: 868-HACK and Zaga-33, which unfortunately has not been ported to 64-bit and cannot be played on modern iOS devices.
P1 was frustrating for me until I looked at a guide for less than a minute, then it clicked. The dense, alien UI becomes intuitive and obvious but won’t be at first. Whether you figure it out without help, read all of a guide, or just peek at some help to get an initial boost, it’s important to note P1 has a steep initial curve. There’s no tutorial included.
Advice for Brough: This is a hurdle likely keeping some away. Maybe? Gaming aesthetic/philosophy vs. more mainstream access. ...Discuss.
Brough’s games always impress me with their tight, interesting design. I am more of a fan with every game he makes.
He said on his blog that this is similar to hos ither games and that he had to comes to terms with that. I think its a good thing; roguelikes are always an iteration on a base set of gameplay rules anyway.
I enjoy that every turn counts in this game and you have to plan ahead. It’s not as chaotic as Cinco Paus or complex as Imbroglio, but the balance it strikes really appeals to me. It’s my current go-to game.
Another comment suggested that the double-finger swipe was annoying to use, so I wanted to point out that you can change the interaction in the main screen. The middle symbol on the left side will change the interaction to swiping to move and tapping to switch to attack mode. I find this to be a much better interaction myself.
Another great game
I’ve spent so much time on Brough’s games, they’re all fantastic!
Just a quick control suggestion, do you think you could make it so when you attack instead of swiping with both fingers you only swipe with one finger, with the other finger staying still (but still pressing the screen), it’s just a bit easier to do.
