Great Concept

Great game, love the tactics. There’s a lot of characteristics to this game that make the game play very entertaining. The maps are diverse and multiplayer makes the tactics different with each game. As golden as this app is, I would like to point out something, that I’d like to see done, to better the experience. I wish bomb plants would have different variations in where they’re located. Not quite randomized because that could lead to issues with easy and unfair wins and losses but at least 2-3 variations.

I also would like to add a concept idea, if I could. It may not be in the developers agenda but competition is the biggest motivator to gamers. I think it would be really cool to have alliances with territory that could be conquered in the multiplayer system. As far as I know, no such game exists unless you’re talking RISK. However, that’s a game gauged on dice not skill and tactical prowess. Anyway just a thought to better expand on such a wonderful game.
Thanks for listening!

Very Fun Game :)

This game is kind of like a mix between Door Kickers and CS:GO on Steam. It is very fun to play. It is a free game, but there are no ads and the only thing you can purchase is the in-game currency. So the game isn’t really that P2W because you are paying to progress faster rather than paying to unlock stuff you wouldn’t be able to normally. My only complaint is that the throwing axe is kind of OP. It is a 5,000 gold weapon that replaces the grenade and it is an instant kill and it bounces off walls. It is impossible to counter because even if you move your guys every turn so the enemy doesn’t know your location, it has a good chance it will still hit you. The throwing axe moves very quickly which leaves your guys little time to dodge it if the other player knows your location. Luckily, the only player I have seen use it is the #1 player and I keep getting matched with him for some reason.

I love this game

This game is fun. I love that you can control your troops and go around to defuse or extract the hostage. I do have some ideas to add to the game. One is the one I want the most: When your troop is walking you can make them look at a certain direction to see if anyone is there but that’s the only place they’ll look until next planning phase. I want it where after you put the first place where your troop will be you can put another spot where he can move and look at a different direction so he can advance more. This would be really useful since your troop can look around more instead of staring at the same spot. It’s also hard to find people to verse against (idk if that’s the game or just me). Otherwise more maps would be really cool and modes, maybe a few new troops but that’s about it. I love this game and I hope you keep adding more to it.
