In a plot that seems heavily inspired by John Carpenter’sThe Thing, you take on the role of commander of an emergency response team that has been sent lớn the Arctic khổng lồ investigate troubling reports from a secret lab that is owned by the Xenowerk Corporation. It soon becomes clear that mutated lifeforms are running amok, killing anyone unfortunate enough khổng lồ cross their slimy path. In true disaster film-style, conflicting interests soon bubble to lớn the surface.

The world may need saving, but Xenowerk is more intent on maximising profits and minimising bad publithành phố.


Commencement ofXenowerk Tactics will see Joyce Grendel, your chief of staff, introducing you to base camp. Your new home page may only be a cluster of grey, non-descript temporary structures, but it is essential khổng lồ familiarise yourself with their various functions. You could drop off at the recruitment vehicle lớn endanh mục some new fodd- er, ‘heroes’.

Your recruits will usually be billeted at the nearby barracks, excluding those unfortunate enough to lớn be injured, who can be sent khổng lồ the field hospital to lớn recover. Those lucky souls who earn enough experience lớn be promoted can pop along to lớn the spa làm đẹp for some extra-curricular activities.

The armoury is the place lớn go to equip your team with the latest gadgets. At the comm& centre, you can check your messages, which will include news updates, requests for assistance và new missions. Initially, there will not be many updates, but as the game progresses various individuals and organisations will be clamouring for your attention.

You may consider going against your employers’ back to lớn make some quiông xã cash on the blaông xã market, or even leak some valuable data to more socially aware organisations. After accepting a mission, you will need khổng lồ load your squad and equipment into the awaiting helicopter. There are three basic classes of recruit: rangers, marines, and scientists.

Each character will have sầu decks of cards, representing their skills, traits and equipment. A ranger can use his recon skill to pinpoint enemies, whilst scientists can scan for the locations of mission objectives. Marines tend to lớn take a more direct approach, using frag grenades to lớn cut through the enemy ranks.

Before take-off, you have one last opportunity khổng lồ purchase some extra equipment such as explosives, ropes, and machetes, which may be needed to reach some mission objectives.

Your helicopter will l& in a previously secured safe zone, from where you will have sầu to continue on foot. On your way khổng lồ your target, random encounters pop up. These could involve being ambushed by mutants or suffering a drop in morale as one of your operatives tells a really bad joke.

Luckily, some characters will have sầu traits that can negate a detrimental sự kiện, for instance, a natural leader can rally the tiệc nhỏ even after a particularly awful pun. Encounters are not always bad; you may unearth some vital data, or come across a short cut. The maps is divided into lớn regions with different threat levels, and all of the available missions will be displayed, alongside any essential equipment.

Mission locations are varied, ranging from jungles & swamps lớn laboratories & factories. Upon reaching your destination the view switches khổng lồ a forced overhead 3 chiều perspective, with the surroundings gradually revealing as you explore. Controls are really simple; you can select và drag an individual character khổng lồ a location, or tap the screen lớn rally your squad lớn a particular point.

As soon as the enemy comes within range your operatives will immediately open fire. Ammunition is unlimited, so combat is largely a case of finding a position from which you can take down the enemy before your squad gets overwhelmed. If the action becomes too manic you can invoke a tactical pause that will freeze the action, giving you time lớn gather your wits.

Missions present an opportunity to earn cash, biological samples, research data, and new prototype technology; all of which can be used to complete further missions & to lớn update your base.

Developing your base is, unfortunately, the most disappointing aspect ofXenowerk Tactics (so why not kiểm tra out our danh sách of the best Smartphone strategy games lớn find a better example?). Building development is rather straightforward and linear. Some buildings cannot be developed until others have reached a specified cấp độ, so you are never really able khổng lồ branch out và experiment. The buildings themselves are visually unexciting and vị not feel meaningful.

Thankfully, the rest of the graphics are much more atmospheric. They have sầu a 1990’s sensibility, with an army of suitably H.R Giger-style slimy mutants stalking murky corridors, lit by the eerie glow of your team’s torches. You will encounter passageways decorated with trails of blood and dismembered bodies and rooms furnished with grotesquely organic mutant-spewing generators.

Weapons are enjoyably powerful, with enemies exploding in a gooey mess of appendages. The music is also excellent, again paying homage lớn John Carpenter’s work. The tension is palpable and is further exacerbated by the fact that if you vày not have the extra equipment required to lớn give immediate medical care or evacuation. Seriously injured squad members have sầu khổng lồ be left behind.

Overall,Xenowerks Tacticsis excellent, if battery guzzling, fun. A single very reasonable upfront payment gets you the whole game, with no constant internet connection required. Battles are hectic & satisfying, although the almost arcade-lượt thích action may put off those who appreciate a more considered approach.

The bleakness is lifted by some nice humorous moments, like when your squad begin arguing over pizza toppings. It may at times feel like a shoot-em-up, but there is still plenty to lớn consider. Your chief strategy will involve securing strategic safe zones before venturing deeper inlớn the infected area. This involves carefully managing your squad and time.

Knowing how far to lớn push your guys và when khổng lồ swap them out for weaker but healthier alternatives is key. Equipment is strictly limited by carrying capathành phố, so planning is necessary and may mean that you will not always be returning khổng lồ HQ with all of your squad members present.

Your operatives have a diverse range of individual traits, which certainly gives them character & makes losing a favourite operative a sad affair. The base building feels undeveloped and tacked on, but when the rest of the game is so entertaining, it is an issue that can be forgiven.
