Strain Tactics, the real-time-with-pause tactical game by the developers behind Autumn Dynasty, is about to rappel onto your devices November 2nd, and it looks like it’s going to be a fun one, provided the controls work well. In Strain Tactics, you control a squad of soldiers whose job is to save the earth from an alien infestation; no pressure. You build and command a team of 1 to 5 members, picked from over 80 playable characters with unique personalities and traits. This team drops in the middle of a map, and then you can either position it and watch it perform as it watching an RTS, or you can go in and take care of every little detail and every tactical move.
There’s a lot going on in this game. In addition to picking who you want on your team, you get to pick what weapons they’ll bring along. There are over 150 unique items and weapons, so there’s plenty of customization to be had. The game comes with over 30 maps, a ton of different missions, and much, much more. The game will be a premium app for $4.99, and it will release November 2nd. In the meantime, check out our forum thread for more on Strain Tactics.
