    Advanced, highly-detailed multiplayer turn-based strategy in space

    • Tactical gamers love it
    • Highly detailed
    • Rather inaccessible for newbies

    "You may have tactics, sir, but have you tact?"

    I apologize in advance for my review of Stellar Forces. It's a hyper-detailed tactical game, full of units and strategies and, um, tactics, and it's definitely in space, and there are pixels, and... oh, who am I kidding, it's just not my kind of game at all.

    Let me give you the facts: it's an online multiplayer turn-based strategy game, wherein the goal is to defeat your opponents in any of 90 total missions, each with their own challenging layout. Either join a game that's already started or begin your own and await competition. Equip your team using the points at your disposal (one assumes you'll have more as you gain experience). Then, take turns moving, attacking, and defending til someone falls.

    Here's a few namedrops: if you enjoyed Laser Squad Nemesis, XCom, or Space Hulk, then you're gonna love this one too. It's totally free; no hidden IAPs or anything like that.

    I suppose what I'd ask for is a little more accessibility for those unfamiliar with the genre, but I have a feeling that very obfuscation is what makes it so appealing to a certain audience. Users tend to love it. If you love tactical games, listen to them, not me.

    This game is amazing... lots of different supplies and tactics... tactical points for that! The way you can select to play with specific players is a nice touch, all in all, great turn-based strategy game!

    Just like Laser Squad/ Rebelstar. More than 4 levels though!

    Well done for bringing my childhood favourite 'Laser Squad' back to life. Great job.

    Have been looking for a Laser Squad game since, well, Laser Squad (my mate had it delivered in the mail for his Amstrad, I had a Spectrum 48k+ and we had been waiting weeks for it to arrive. His mum had just given birth to his sister and my folks wouldn't let me go round to play it in case we caused too much noise as she was resting, arrrggghhhh. I haven't had frustration on that scale since). This fits the bill nicely, just please don't say I can't play it once it's downloaded :) . Great work and thanks for making a jigsaw piece that fits my minds puzzle.

    very fun as an asynchronous tactical game in old school xcom 1 style game. Interface takes a bit to get used to and the load out screen is a little awkward but once you get through the learning curve you're rewarded. Best as an asynchronous play against your friends throughout the day(s)

    Countless hours were spent playing laser squad on the old 128k, and now after all these decades I get to relieve it again. 5/5
