Strain Tactics is a real time, top-down tactical ARPG that takes players to a cyberpunk, apocalyptic future where the world has been taken over by an infectious alien strain. Featuring 80 playable characters and over 150 unique items and weapons, the game challenges players to defeat enemies by commanding customizable ground teams from their Helibase-gunship overhead. Players can indulge in a variety of scenarios across over 30 different maps, and the sandbox-style mechanics allows users to approach the maps according to their play style.
Build and command your own 1-5-member heliborne task force.
Choose from over 80 playable characters with unique personalities and strengths, and equip their 1-3 inventory slots with countless weapon and item combinations.
Choreograph your team’s actions in real time with a dynamic drag-control system or manually micromanage units!
Defend the Helibase, and protect your team from above with miniguns, autocannons, and more.
Manage your team’s mental health. Keep your squad topped up with happy pills, or deploy emotionless combat droids.
Protect your task force from contamination, or watch them erupt into even more strain.
Level up your units, and revive fallen team members by body-bagging (or selling their corpses for points).
Travel to over 30 unique maps with various scenarios including Hunter-Killer, Escort, Retrieval, Perimeter Defence, and more.
What's New in Version 1.17
Want to love it, but needlessly complicated
The introduction is super long, to the point that I don't remember everything it told me. But unless i missed something, super contrived to do basic things like get and change weapons, supplies and health. Do i really need to dock (8seconds), send my troop to vending machine (20 seconds) buy, pick up, consume, (15 seconds) then head back to the helicopter (20 seconds), stand in the pick up spot (3 seconds) just to heal one troop? And my team of 3 players needs to be healed. Sorry, that is poor design. Have a big button that says 'heal' and let me continue on.
More pain is sometimes walking around I inadvertently trigger coverfire, killing friendly troops inside the helicopter.
In the 3rd mission I did i have to save these guys with paranoia, but how? No matter because they turned into monsters before I could get there, and the guy i dropped there instantly went paranoid killing the other guy...
i am like 4 hours into this game, and still lost. I expected better having played your other games, but am totally dissatisfied with this one
At first I got really frustrated but once you get the hang of it is really good! ( please keep updating)
