Editors’ Notes

Koala bears—are they cute and fuzzy Australian ambassadors, or ruthless rulers of the high seas? In Tropical Wars, it’s a case of “Why not both?” This laugh-out-loud strategy game has players assembling an armada to lead into naval battles while also building an island paradise of productive, eucalyptus-munching workers. We love the rib-tickling antics of the cartoony koala pirates, but there’s plenty of tactical action, management simulation, and multiplayer modes to claw into as well.

Good game, needs a bit more meta game

Great idle/rts. Aside from some balance issues, such as some ships being notably stronger than others, sorcery bluff being useless on T3 spells and mines underperforming lighthouse expeditions by a hilarious margin. Aside from that, the end game becomes a massive grind to complete all research, even ones that don't do much for your build/goals. Adding another tier or two could mitigate this by allowing players to continue being able to make meaningful choices for longer.

Fun rts

I found this game really fun but the only problem is the humor being to childish, but the game was obviously made for a younger demographic. I believe more ships could be added like a big, slow and beefy ship that is good at being in the front line and also have the ability to split the damage other friendly ships take with itself, or a ship that can ram others to push them away from the front line, the biggest thing I want is multiple cannons being able to fire like on the king ship you could turn to its side so the broadside cannons on it could fire, and the second is multiple types of king ships you could unlock in the late game
Edit: I forgot to add some things, first an alliance battle when you can attack anyone from the opposite clan and the goal is to attack the alliance turtle ship and defend yours and you get a star for winning, a second star if you did not lose any ships(you should not need to rebuild them should they be sunk) and a third if you win quickly
