Title: Fantasy Conquest Tactics
What type of game is it?
Turn Based Strategy
What’s the 30 second elevator pitch?
Fight across a variety of battlefields as you lead your forces to world conquest, capturing territories to buffer your forces as you liberate your way through an expansive strategy campaign with a massive variety of units to build your forces from.
What do we like most about it?
Diversity of maps and unit types are the critical thing in longer strategy campaigns, with new tactics and play-styles opened up by stronger and more varied units as the game progresses.Fantasy Conquest Tactics certainly seems to have that in spades.
What I would say though, is that while this completely captures the Advance Wars style, I do prefer my strategy games to have core units or hero units in them — the attachment that this brings normally makes units and their attacks easier to remember, and also can serve to drive the story forward further than a simple land-grab-rush.
Regardless of this, FCT is charming, and seems to have a decent amount of well made content; it also has multiplayer, which is always a good selling point with strategy games as it’s often omitted due to balancing issues.
When’s it due?
Fantasy Conquest Tactics currently has a demo available through a link on its greenlight page. The game is currently listed as only launching on Windows PC, although there’s no estimated release date, so things may change.
