What's New in Version 2.0.2
Fixed critical bug in campaign 1 chapter 4 with story script not properly processing entering room.
I haven't beat it yet but I'm pretty deep into it and I would say I've sent at least 5 hours, thinking it's about a 10 hour game overall. It's reminiscent of X-Com and some other old-school turn based strategies, I want more of everything, mainly a more immersive campaign with than one location. This takes place all at an army base and while by no means small it would be cool to have something like x-com where i could say build a force, research weapons/survival techniques and play across a country or perhaps globally and win back the world from the zombies for good. You'll notice I give it 4 out of 5 stars, I will update this once I have finished and a decimate 5 stars if expansions or updates are added.
Tac Sol - fun game!
I enjoyed this one. It is simple but not easy, a reasonably tough but forgiving (in terms of rebooting save points) TBS. I would consider this a VERY good "beer and pretzels" kind of game. They are building in more monster types in the sequels, and the fact is that - like in "real" zombie epics - mass has a quality all it's own. Always heal, use your grenades carefully, and try to max out on action points so your heavy gunner (s) can fire twice a round. Also recognize that the M-16, for some reason, runs out of ammo very quickly, forcing you to keep an eye out for drops of other weapons. And watch out for "own goals" - weapons can damage your own crew...
So close but so far
TacSol has a good foundation - solid controls for a touch screen and good basic gameplay. The problem is that there's no real tactics or options in the game. There are only 3 enemy types and they're all either a minor nuisance or have the ability to kill your whole squad in a turn or two without any way to defend against them.
Ultimately, TacSol trades any tactical depth for a really finicky random number generator. Any sense of planning or strategy are removed when your trained soldiers miss three grouped-up zombies at point-blank range. With a shotgun. Twice in a row. When you supposedly had a 79% hit chance.
