Critical Review – Pixel Tactics

MG_PT

Pixel Tactics is a head-to-head game of tactical combat for two players. Each player has an identical deck of 25 cards, from which they draft a leader. The leader’s abilities alter vastly the strategy and playability of every other card in the deck, making the game playable in 25 different ways.

In the game, players take turns placing cards and attacking. Each card can activate in various ways, taking on offensive capabilities in the front rows of the unit, or support powers in the back rows. Cards can also be played as orders – powerful single-time effects that can turn the tide of battle.

Play continues until either player’s leader is defeated. A typical game is best of 3 or best of 5 rounds.

Pixel Tactics takes place in the same world and uses many of the characters from Level 99 Games’ BattleCON: War of Indines, but its game play is entirely unrelated.

Damocles Mission (A Video Review)

Damocles Mission

Ares Magazine #13. On 15 September 1988, a dark spherical object approximately 1.2 kilometers in diameter of unknown origin assumed a geosynchronous orbit over the Galapagos Islands. Upon orders of the president, an investigating shuttle mission was configured (code name Damocles)…

Damocles Mission is a solitaire paragraph based game to explore the alien craft around the earth. Tiles will allow the player to expand the known area of the craft, and a variable handicap system at the end of each play will allow you to adjust the initial allocation of units for the next time to make it easier/harder.

Whack and Slaughter (A Video Review)

Whack & Slaughter is a fantasy skirmish game, where each player uses one miniature that represents his character on the battlefield. A player may use any miniature he already possesses, as the system allows to configure the character however he wishes.

In Whack & Slaughter your six sided die turns into your character sheet. By buying levels in your traits and painting the pips of the die according to the rules, you determine the strength and weakness of your character.
Even though you roll a pool of up to five dice, usually only the one die with the highest result determines the outcome of your action.
By selecting up to three skills from the skill list there are countless of ways to individualize your character – and make him a deadly force on the battlefield.
