Under rating threshold (show) Several complaints: 1. The "Lives" make it impossible to abort and re-evaluate strategy if you go in with a losing 'deck', leaving the player helpless. 2. The cost of keeping units on-par with where they need to be is excessive, preventing the inter-battle shuffling needed to win. 3. No way to have units try to move beyond the three designated waypoints. Essentially, the game needs you to have a specific loadout to beat an enemy, doesn't give you the resources to choose the loadout, and punishes the trial-and-error by effectively ending the game after three mistakes.

Under rating threshold (show) Too much bugs : orbital shoots only ennemy, fighters are going reverse, can't upgrade army enough to fight ennemy, boring to stop every 10 sec... Well, too bad we can't evaluate a ZERO

Under rating threshold (show) The fact that I can't grind for more money is a little irritating; by the 6th enemy, I'm finding myself entering combat with the full knowledge that my army is inferior, and hoping that I can either pull off a victory or stave off defeat for long enough that the orbital bombardment does its work for me. Otherwise, great game.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice game... Pretty easy strategy to beat it (although I doubt this is an optimal strategy). Have light~medium units until you get to sentries. Then have at least 3 turrets in your party (swap 1 turret for rocket against vehicles and 1 turret for mortar to leapfrog to enemy base). Your other two units should be rocketmen. Then swap a rocketman for a Mammoth then a Walker (to capture spaces). The last unit could be raiders because backdoor OP. Orbital bombardment quite literally does the job for you.

Under rating threshold (show) I usually dislike games that don't forgive mistakes.. Like, if you're out of money and with the wrong combinaison of units against an enemy, you could be just stuck there and keep losing. But after I lost my 3rd life against lvl 7 enemy, all I want is to try again. Fun little game ^^ But it's a shame the game has to end and you can't keep playing :(

Under rating threshold (show) my base got taken out but before the territory was covered in blue he had one health and was orbitaly struck. I won. That's a bug right, can you fix it other wise great game with an overly harsh difficulty curve 4.25/5, good job

Under rating threshold (show) this is ridiculous while i have units spawning in, getting killed instantly by the milliion turrets they have, they're spawning MORE turrets all the way to my character, and I get killed because i can't take down their turrets lol. I guess I should get more turrets then! 5/5 btw.

Under rating threshold (show) Is it just me or does speeding up the game not speed up the time spawns with more that 1 unit in them (like light units). Because wehn i speed the game up it takes longer that one turn for them to all spawn, where as non-sped up they all spawn in 1 turn worth of time.

Under rating threshold (show) Not a big fan of the fact I can't keep some units in reserve. Which by reserve I mean they don't get deployed but I can put them in my army between levels without having to rebuy them. Without this feature I feel like the game is punishing me for playing the way I want to and not creating some sort of spreadsheet of strengths and weaknesses. Not to mention the three strike system (I know you don't actually lose if you run out of lives) more or less forbids you from trying new units more specialized units.

Under rating threshold (show) stupid. you shouldn't have lives and then your whole game restarts. dumbest idea you put into the game. it is great though gameplay wise but not the lives thing. never do that again

Under rating threshold (show) Typical nerdook crap - good idea, but bad execution. The biggest flaw imo - lack of reserve pool, for currently unused troops.

Under rating threshold (show) Other functions like allowing us to send troops anywhere (by using the same method but instead with the squares), allowing us to control the units, or allowing us to take enemy territory around the leader ( to block them from spawning and, if the enemy doesn't have any territory over, a win -- else there's no point in being able to capture more territory other than allowing us to spawn troops on a different course (which i already told you how to change) ).

Under rating threshold (show) The game could use some tweaks. Like others recommended, a replay function would be awesome. However this is not needed if the enemy wouldn't just have fully maxed out units, because we can't get that with the cash we earn. And Imo the gunships are OP as they're quite tanky (250 hp at lvl 4) they do quite some damage (10 and fast fire rate) and they don't stop to attack (which allows them to move behind your tanky units and kill your snipers). Thus level 4 with 4 gunships was just too hard for me. nonetheless a good game.
