Into The Breach Review
Into The Breach is a turn-based strategy, released by Subset Games. The game came out in 2018. It is available for PCs and Nintendo Switch. This product has many positive reviews on Steam. Into The Breach is very popular among gamers across the world.
We can’t say the picture is brilliant there. You are playing in the pseudo-3D world, and all the characters are isometric. However, the graphics are the last thing you should worry about when trying to complete all the Into the Breach missions. The game is more about the gameplay and its features.
Turn-based strategies have many fans across the world. It doesn’t matter whether you are playing Civilisation games or Total War series. Into The Breach will definitely be another diamond in your collection. This time you will find yourself in the future where monsters are trying to conquer the planet.
The map of each mission is divided into eight squares. There are only five turns per each level. You need to survive and protect the electric stations where civilians hide. Into The Breach also has some additional tasks for you that you need to accomplish to win.
Once you have won a battle, you get points that you can spend on weapons and upgrades for the machines. You can also hire new pilots for your army. They are getting experience points that may be distributed among the whole group. Your main task is to liberate five islands. Once you have succeeded, new vehicles become available to you to be used in your next games.
The best controller for every turn-based strategy is the mouse. However, even if you play it with the gamepad, you will have great game experience. You can set buttons, choose short keys, and change some default options to improve your results.
There are many ways you can win in each mission. This makes the game’s scenario non-linear and increases the replay value. There is no multiplayer here, but you will be happy to restart the game having the upgraded set of machines.
Into The Breach is a very interesting turn-based strategy where you need to protect the civilians and assault various monsters willing to capture the islands. You can buy it via Steam for $8.49.
