Lost in Tactics
Jul 17, 2020

• Story Engaging (No long wall text) that assault eyes like some games. Very well written, easy to follow.. deep story w/ linear conversation tree mechanic - meant to give you deeper understanding of story, by asking questions. Which you will ! • Onion layers here with the depth of... - Ship Abilities - Officer Abilities - Cool Down Abilities - Rock, Paper & Scissor Mechanics (a classic game mechanic) • Beautiful Art Work (I’m screen capping all over the place) so I can save as wall paper on my iPad Pro 12.9 • Mixture of Turn Based Tactics & Real Time Strategy. Civ 6 -meets- Rome Total War? In regards to mixing these two cadences. • Compelling, mysterious atmosphere. It will pull you. • I’m that one strange person, that could never get into FTL, and I tried. Crying Suns does not have FTL vibes to me. It’s own thing in my eyes. Crying Suns gives me XCOM vibes for whatever reason. I’m still learning this game, about 4 star visits in.. but I had to give this game a 5 star. I’ve been a NON free to play gamer for over 30 years. I know my way around the block - This is a premium gem. My only wish... in the future it receives PVP. I would love to test these tactics & strategies versus human minds!

Really love how they make you feel like a starship commander and the storyline so far, and I’ve only finished chapter 1! A few things keep it from being 5 stars. 1. The graphics feel a bit small and are sometimes hard to parse, I can’t imagine this playable on a smaller screen than 11”. Would love some kind of zoom when selecting tiles, even just a little would help a lot. I don’t need to see both ships when I’m telling my drones where to fly for example. 2. Some of the pixel art doesn’t seem to scale down right, like the terrain on surface missions looks like a mess of pixels, I tried the PC demo and they were clear there. Not sure what resolution this is running, but give us a higher resolution level for iPad pros! 2. The controls are mostly well implemented, but I can’t figure out how to cancel ship weapons without restarting their timers, and I’ve accidentally bought things in shops because I swiped too slow since there isn’t a confirm box there. Little things like that are frustrating. Overall though I recommend this game to anyone who enjoys spaceship combat, strategy, or who loved FTL. Can’t wait to play more!

Really enjoying the game so far! A couple of small requests would be to make the game playable in the upside down landscape orientation, right now its locked to only one landscape rotation, easy fix. Secondly, in combat it can be really hard to see the ships on the grid and know their type, everything is so tiny, perhaps you can allow us to zoom in and out on the battlefield with a pinch to zoom gesture, it would make things alot clearer and should feel pretty natural controls wise. But overall a fantastic game, thanks for bringing it to mobile!

Once the opening bug was fixed I’m hooked. Really great rogue game. If you enjoyed FTL and DOTE you will like this. All around a really well done piece. A couple of notes: 🪐 there is a lot of info regarding the ships stations and options at the outset. A small info icon to have a re-explanation during battles would be nice for players. I’ve tried reading the info about the ships hill for instance but I’m still not 100% sure how the damage system works. 🪐much of the npc dialogue feels like it’s being acted out by the same personality. Not much diversity of language (of course it’s a game not a novel) 🪐having crashes when I select to start a planetary away party and other various moments in game 🪐would be nice to have a lore section. The story is very interesting and makes me want to explore more in it. I hope another game in this universe gets developed.

For some reason this game hit a spot for me. It stacks up well against other rouge lite games like FTL and others that inspired it. Making decisions as cloned admiral traveling through a collapsing empire is pretty cool. The bridge interface feels good. The tactical battles were fun once I realized it was meant to be played like a turn-based tactics game. The tactical pause creates a nice flow to the skirmishes. I’m happy that the the team that made this is releasing some new content soon. More events would also be great.
