Hey folks. Just wondering anybody tried this game or the others of this series. It's individual man squad size tactical wargame. I like these and just stumbled across it.

I've seen other games like this. It might have potential. The only thing I've noticed about games like this though, is they seem to appear, and then get almost immediately get ditched soon after, as if they were some how cursed.

I wanted to like it but it's just not that good. It's clunky and difficult to play, and as Mrs pointed out it doesn't appear to have been updated at all since its 1.0 release. I would avoid.

X-COM and Jagged Alliance series and their derivatives (UFO: Extraterrestrials, Hired Guns: The Jagged Edge) have been around for a long while.

Someone needs to make a digital version of SPI's Patrol.

I didn't like the mouse control. No free roam, hard to tame. Otherwise it would have been ok. it's a shame the designer didn't use a common form of mouse navigation.
