It was all going so well.

One day the world is experiencing a golden age of technology, the next it’s forcibly merged with an alternate dimension. It happens.

Now there’s a new reality, a world between worlds: The Bast.

RFM is a roguelite tactics game where you can play, pause and plan. You are Morgan, dimension-diving merc, delving deeper and deeper into The Bast at the behest of the factions looking to exploit this new reality.

But you’re going to need help to survive in the depths. Help, and a whole lot of skill.

RFM combines the tactics of grid-based strategy with the thrills of an action game. Each level plays out in realtime, but you can pause to assess the battlefield, prep your attacks and plan your next move. Use mods and equipment to enhance your preferred style of play and overcome your foes.

Inspired by the Golden Age of Space and seventies retro-futurism, RFM’s cel-shaded art and unique atmosphere, set to an irresistibly catchy soundtrack, means diving into the unknown has never felt so stylish.

You’re not alone on your journey into The Bast. As a mercenary you’ll deal with close associates and vying factions: everyone wants a piece of this new reality. But going deeper means getting better, and you’ll have to create unlikely alliances to procure the equipment you need to dive deeper.

  • Unique tactical battle system combining real-time action and time-freezing strategy

  • Every dive is different: change your strategies on the fly to counter a dimension in flux.

  • A hyper-stylish retro-future set to a catchy original soundtrack

  • Discover the secrets of each world and work towards a mysterious final goal

Adapt or Perish

Adapt or Perish

Adapt or Perish has that addictive game play that people also find in games like Factorio for the same reason. I’ve already put in over 50 hours and i’m still learning new things i can do…………then fix them to make them better……then fix them.

This game lets you be strategic not just on the field but in the DNA engineering department as well. Other RTS games have a fixed set of assets to use that use attributes others have decided for you are useful but not in Adapt or Perish.

This game lets you really get into the true strategy of war and tactics by letting you create units, buildings and more real time in game match so you can design dynamically if you lack something you need. You can push your designs to their limits and see if they have what it takes to keep you alive and searching for Overseers. The farther you push out the harder it gets so using tactics come into play constantly and pushes your abilities to hone a better faction.

AoP is an rts that feels distinctive, which in 2019 is saying something. I play-tested the crap out of this and still have a lot to learn. The unit customization system provides many viable strategies and possible play styles. You can mimic builds and strategies from other rtses and tower defensey games if you wish. Some of your intuition about how rtses work will require adjustment in AoP’s reality.

There is no campaign. The only goal is to kill beefy Overseer units as cheaply and quickly as possible to receive a higher score on the leaderboard. If you know what you’re doing you can defeat the first Overseer in 15 minutes, but getting that first kill is only the lowest tier of real victory. The AI never runs out of resources and cannot be defeated. Enemy units and buildings spawn around your units just outside of your line of sight, and killing them makes the enemy angrier which makes the AI spawn more enemies, leading to a meat grinder of attrition. You can keep pulling up weeds in your yard until your yard is perfect, but you can’t prevent weeds from growing outside your yard. How long can you keep your base alive while hunting Overseers deep in the wilderness?

First off you may want to know that this game is being developed by one person. The dev has been active on the forum responding to every person so far. He has within 2 days of release patched the game 3 times to to add or change things requested by various players. He has been responsive and polite.

I have really been enjoying the game after I spent 3-4 hrs of starting a game, learning something new, then restarting and learning something new and restarting again until I felt like I finally knew what was going on. So far this game runs smoothly without any hic-ups or any other game breaking bugs that I have noticed, yet. Most all the info you need to play the game can be found in-game in the help section(hotkeys are listed in there) and the video tutorials section. What you can’t find there can be found in the manual.

Simple Space 4X with quite a few neat ideas, with significant bugs and balance issues. Occasionally you glimpse great game buried here, but in the end these bugs and balance issues are too much for game to shine.

But in the end, thumbs up for good ideas and price,

Seems like a nice little game, though I ran into a bug on Mission 9 that meant I couldn’t complete the mission and continue the campaign. I used Cheat Engine to force the Events::IsTriggered check to always be true and that caused the mission to immediately fail and complete instantly allowing me to continue however.

A wonderful little strategy game.

At first, it seems a bit simplistic, but with each advancing level you need to change your tactics to adjust for the defenses established on the map.

I will not say it is terribly difficult, but it is a pleasant challenge until you figure out your own personal strategy.

Update: How many hours? How long can you go before you do the Ceres event in game? Once you have this game figured out you can get quite OP (not by cheating!). Which you need in some places. It really is epic. Yes, I have played 500+ hours. There have been some frustrating stretches where I should have gotten a save in, and decided/had to go back. It can fight you it’s true. Like everything in this game, you must learn the rules the hard way, lol.

Maybe I’ll make a guide on managing the saving at least (just leave the zone), and drone wrangling (fly the ship towards the drone while recalling it, and other stuff), and other things like that.

From what I could experience in the first 10 hours of game play its clear this title has a lot of potential. The graphics are good without being too demanding so heavy fighting hardly slows down at all, making for some seriously nasty battles. It feels balanced and the ship modification adds a real personal feel to what I do and how I play the game. The only time I failed at a mission so far was due to the tricky nature of disabling a ship without destroying it, as you need lasers or boarding drones which turned into a bit of a game of hide in the bigger ship’s blind spots. The learning curve can be a little hard but if you played and loved games like Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, Freelancer & Independence War, then this game is right up those lines.

Empyrean Frontier

Empyrean Frontier

A good space strategy game with rts battles. Has two factions you can playthough as and many different ships and customization options for your mothership, and Interesting abilities on a few of the ships. One i particularily enjoy is the tractor beam which can either repel and attract enemy ships you can use these ships to either keep ships out of your range or to attract them to your broadside frigates, a really nice game mechanic and add strategic depth to the space combat. That’s not all there though are many other ships but i dont want to spoil them for you :)

Waste of money even at $4 on sale. Missions don’t give enough information at the start to allow you to know if you want (or even can) complete them. E.g. I accepted a gladiator challenge, and only after that found I don’t have the ships needed. Instant fail. Or enemy suddenly produces a mega-weapon and wipes me out even though he is outnumbered 3-1. When your flagship dies it is game over, so rinse and repeat … except the map is different every time so you can never learn from your mistakes.

Koi Unleashed

Koi Unleashed

Koi Unleashed was a really great game, the illustration art is awesome. The music really envelops you in the atmosphere of an ancient Japan and during Boss fights it feels quite epic.

It’s a solid game that revolves around the combat with big enemy Bosses. While the game is simple and fun to play there is also an increased difficulty in controlling your party with commands at the same time as you have to avoid all the different enemies attacks and when you have to avoid boss mechanics.

The controls are great and I love that I can drop my controller and just go play on my laptop if I feel like it.

Game Review:

Koi Unleashed is an Action RPG. It looks nice, is Challenging and fun. Its Got a Good Soundtrack, The Landscapes are pretty, and the boss battles were good. Make sure to take advantage of your Runes & Crystals when it gets hard. Game really requires you to switch back and forth alot to take advantage of everyone’s powers.

  • Good Music

  • Controller Support (tho it recognized my Xbox one controller as a PS4 controller but was able to change this in the pause menu)

  • Multiple Fighting Classes, Adds a lot of replayability to this

Fun game, especially if you have friends who also enjoy boss battle games. Game could use a bit more depth with character customization, but I have payed more for less of a game.

Awesome game! Loved the WC3 version and this game doesn’t disappoint. Made the hotkeys super easy to use (Custom) which was a lot easier then the WC3 streching across the keyboard to cast spells. The scaling of the boss levels Normal - Hard - Impossible feels like a good step up each time. The Dev was also really helpful and responded quick to questions. Will definitely get my friends together to take on Ironman mode!
