This game made me use my brain (if I ever had one). Interesting puzzle I only can recommend!

Not a bad puzzle/action game. Basically you move/shoot to color the balls/lines to control more land & spit out more abilities than the enemy. The game is very basic and also very short. I beat both episodes in about 2.5 hours.

Each level has different goal, kill the enemy, capture ground, get certain colors, or live X amount of time.

Overall, its ok for what it is. If you like simple action puzzle games, might be your cup of tea!

This game is pretty weird. It's also a lot of fun. It's fast paced. It's action. It's strategy. It's a puzzle game. And that's really all the words I have that I can use to describe this thing.

I suggest checking out the demo, especially if you are tired of 9 out of 10 indie strategy games being Tower Defense.

Once you've finally gotten the hang of the various abilities, you lose them all and get even crappier new ones to replace them.

It's hard to explain, but it does have you making lots of triangles.

To me, this seemed to be less of a game and more of a manual graph problem solver. I'm not so sure I'll be playing this again.

I usually tell my friends that I like smart, innovative games. Now I realize I was wrong.
I commend the creator for doing something very different, and not trying to dumb down the mechanics. I am also completely overwhelmed by the sheer number of different abilities all mapped to separate keys and the boggling amount of information changing at an inhumanly quick pace. I feel like super advanced AI would love playing this game, but I am a mere human.

This is a mean ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ of a game, although maybe it's just my horrible lack of skill at RTSes. I want to describe it sort of as a puzzle-RTS? The only 'resources' are the color of points you control, allowing abilities to recharge faster the more of X color node you have. Try the demo? I straight up can't give a good confirm/deny if you'd like this one with ease like some other things. This is a competent little title that I just blow goats at.

An intriguing concept! Definitely worth checking out.
Kind of like mixing Volfied with a moebius strip, added skills and color puzzles.
What the hell is that even? Well, see for yourself. It's fun. Although I do advise to wait for a sale, anything 50% or higher would do.

Interesting concept, poor execution. It seems like they couldn't make the AI intelligent enough on it's own, so they decided to just throw BS scenarios in to make it "hard". Also the controls feel pretty laggy. At times its fun, most of the time it's just "meh".

One of those games where I simply felt as if suddenly I was stupid. In this case even more since I really did not understand a single thing in it. OH WELL, good thing there other options for me on my market, now if you're reading this and there's no other review from your friends:

a) Get some more friends in-game
b) Just go read a review online/check some playthroughs

Cheers

The idea is really nice. It's just that it's very difficult to get the right setup. At higher levels you don't even get the chance to setup something correctly, you just bash as hard as you can to try to defeat the cheating AI. Just think of starting with a power of 1 versus 5, and this time it's not really strategy, because your just by yourself. A little traingled tank with a laser beam.
