    War Agent's review

    Published: 2014-04-10, by Peter Warrior.

    Sell weapons to both sides to keep the war ever ongoing.

    • Original and thrilling gameplay
    • Mindful yet casual
    • No lite or trial version
    • Insufficient tutorial

    "Who's going to inherit the earth? Arms dealers. Because everyone else is too busy killing each other."

    War Agent is about buying weapons, from handguns to missiles, and intercede in a war between a blue and a red country. By "intercede" we mean supporting both sides and keep some balance so nobody actually wins.

    It's quite tricky, firstly because it's played in real time so you can be a spectator all the time no matter how cool retro sprites are when killing each other. You can't either take up a stance in favor or against Eurasia or Oceania (so to speak) because the other side would look for new undercover allies elsewhere and even get warfare stuff you can't yet provide and unbalance and unmess the mess and caboodle.

    There are also lighting fast events that change what's going on. New inner factions can upraise if their government is acting too soft or hard, or if there's a smear campaign or if collateral damage gets too much unbearable. Terrorists may also come up, governments and media are bribeable, and there's a corruption rating and a civilian loses score so you can get the whole picture. Don't forget to swipe up and sidewards to access side screens.

    On the other hand, the tutorial is absolutely insufficient. The game pace is lighting fast, and we should wonder if a turn based gameplay wouldn't had benefited it better. Lastly, retro graphics may be an ongoing craze, but mustn't be a commodity and could have been replaced by something more serious.

    Recommended for action players looking for something more mindful with bits of strategy.

    Anyway, a game that will make you think about its context for several seconds before getting lost into its really original and thrilling gameplay.
