“A Marriage of Winning TBS and High Fantasy Parody!”
4.5/5 – toucharcade

Info over het spel

This witty, wacky, turn-based strategy game is now available for Steam. In Highborn, you’re treated to a strategy game that offers an intelligent, tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS. Move your forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue and wild assumptions.

Key Features:

  • A New Strategy: A unique blend of strategic movement and combat caters to a variety of gameplay styles and offers lots of replayability.
  • Many Styles of Play: Unlock hero characters for access to different abilities, play styles, and strategies.
  • Achieve Greatness: More than 20 achievements to unlock, including judicious use of turns, using units as bait, and making it through an entire mission without capturing support structures.

I put this game right in the middle of "yes" or "no", because it depends on how much you like SRPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics. If you've played Grotesque Tactics, this game is quite similar but even more simplified, with no leveling up or inventory management. Also, wow, the "humor" is even worse - if you can believe that.

It's not quite as buggy as GT is/was, but there are still some technical problems with it. On the larger maps, the framerate starts to crawl because of the number of units, I suspect because the game isn't quite optimized. There's no music during gameplay, and the sound design leaves a lot to be desired (though I did get a chuckle when I heard the wilhelm scream). Graphics are quite bland, barely passable.

That said, it does scratch the itch a bit just like Grotesque Tactics did. If you've played through Final Fantasy Tactics enough times to really look for something else, you could find worse. If you're a hardcore turn-based tactics fan who likes a lot of depth to their strategy, this game doesn't have it. If you like something light on the tone and challenge, or can get this game really cheap, then give it a look.

Found this game very boring. Tries to hard to be funny. Will consider edits as I play more into the game. So far its a bundle title at best.

Other than a bug on first startup, runs smooth and works as intended.

Buggy. Killed everything and took all the buildings in mission 2, and the mission wouldn't end. Didn't feel like restarting in hopes it would work the second time.

Overall this is a fun game. It's short, easy to play and fun to play through the first time. It has little replay value aside from some of the harder achievements, and one or two of them are actually quite brutal to get. The controls are fairly simple and there's not many spells or abilities to worry about. Some of the sounds effects will make you want to kill something I admit... looking at you Floyd. The game has a few AI issues like abusing hiding in trees and some strange targeting issues but for the most part the AI is easy enough to figure out and outplay. Don't go looking into this thinking you're going to get some amazing in depth Starcarft or Europa Universalis. You're not. You're going to get a cute light-hearted fun little time waster.
