At its most basic, this game plays like reactive chess, where you see what the other player is going to do before you decide how to use your turn.

You and the other "player" (the enemy team) have a handful of "pieces" on a grid-based board, and each type of piece has a handful of specific moves it can perform. The enemy team decides what moves it's going to perform in what order, and shows you what they will be but doesn't yet execute them. Your turn is spent executing your own moves to preemptively counter theirs.

So like, if the enemy has a piece in front of a civilian tile that you are tasked with protecting, they will set up their piece to attack the tile in front of them on the next move. You can then use your turn to move that piece so a different tile is in front of it, destroy or disable that piece so it can't take its turn, or get a piece in the way so it takes the attack instead of the civilian tile. When you get better at the game, you'll start thinking up wild shit like pushing that piece in front of its own team's piece so it attacks its own piece instead.

It's extremely cool. I recommend it to anyone, even if you've never played a strategy game before.

I got this game for full price and I consider it a great investment. One of my favorite turn-based strategy games and an absolute-must at this price, especially if you play on-the-go.

Already own on steam, but still picked up. Great game, especially if you enjoyed FTL.

Can anyone describe the gameplay or compare it to something similar?

I know this game can be difficult, but is it accessible to someone who doesnt normally play tactics games? I've heard great things about it and I'm thinking about trying it.

It's a turn based game played about giant robots protecting cities from giant insects. Enemy actions are explicitly shown, and you have to figure out how to protect buildings and structures from being destroyed. It's more of a defensive puzzle game than an tactical skirmish game. If you like roguelikes and experimenting, it's great.

I would describe it as similar to chess, really. Defeat enemies without losing your own pieces.

It is totally accessible. Every enemy action is shown every turn. There will be failures, at first. a lot, probably. But learning and improving is one of the real draws of this game.
