Feedback from the experts

Nathan Lie: A lot of strategizing is required to beat this one - each unit is very unique in playstyle, and its these distinct playstyles in tandem that makes this game great. The levels were just the right amount of challenging. Only improvement I can suggest is to add a message somewhere saying you can inspect your enemies' abilities, since I didn't know what they were capable of for a while. Also, there didn't seem to be any Web Monetization bonuses.

Ewa Mazur: Funny story - for me - non coder, the game was... let's say unplayable - I was really feeling lost ;) I can say the graphics and color palette was nice.I couldn'tĀ find anything special for Coil subscribers also.

Anselm Hook: Fun, did not see the web monetization tie in.

Christer Kaitila: WOW! This is such a detailed, deep, amazing tactics game! Please promise me that you will keep iterating on this! And then sell it!! These really unique and interesting tactics elements could be made beautiful in a size restriction free post compo edition and I could see this being a game tons of people fall in love with! It evokes memories of battlechess and the apple2 era game "archon" from ages ago, yet has modern simplicity I like akin to the disgaea style battlefield and almost a roguelike feel due to the small number of units, which I liked. I need to come back to this to look deeper, as I feel like I've just barely touched the fun and depth in my very quick playtest. Great work!

Jupiter Hadley: Tricky game, but really fun!
