Here Be Dragons is a comical ship-based combat game set in the time of Christopher Columbus, where hapless captains battle against mermen for control of the high seas. The story is impressive, but the game falters a bit in its fundamentals.
Tactical based games like XCOM used to be all the rage, but we have not seen as many these days. Corruption 2029 helps to bring them roaring back, with a dystopian future America tearing itself apart just in time for our next election.
Rebel Cops attempts to take the combat elements of the This is the Police games and make it the main focus of a cops versus bad guys tactical battler. It’s an interesting game, but perhaps a little too stripped down in this era of XCOM and other more polished turn based combat titles.
Billy’s taking a look at his last Time Waster before his grand finale next week and this time around its an Early Access game called Wildermyth.
Mirroring the classic Darkest Dungeon tactical battler, Warsaw puts players in the role of Polish resistance fighters trying to survive during the ill-fated Warsaw uprising of World War II. The odds are stacked against you, but with perseverance and excellent tactics, you might emerge victorious.
BIlly is killing time, and monsters, this week with a gacha game for Android called Battle Souls that has some wonderful sprite art and a lot of turn-based combat. Grab an axe and head into Battle Souls this week!
Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark is an excellent turn-based RPG in the vein of Final Fantasy Tactics, Vandal Hearts, Tactics Ogre and others. It strives to add a few new twists to the genre without taking the game out of the realm that turn-based RPGers so love. It’s fun and challenging.
Billy’s time wasting this week is on a digital collectible card game called Tap Cats: Epic Card Battle that looks good at first.
The second official DLC for BATTLETECH, Urban Warfare brings fighting mechs into the big city, where everything is destructible and games of cat and mouse using the new ECM warfare modules can last for hours on end. It’s a brief but good addition to the core game.
This week Billy has been checking out Teamfight Tactics, it’s a new mode for League of Legends that is nothing like the normal game.
