well this turn based strategy game is very addicting. I've only played the single player/campaign mode and I couldn't find multiplayer match :( . I guess the multiplayer has been "long gone" or maybe I just couldn't find any player online. In this game you are playing as a afterlife general in shogun era (I always think general = shogun himself), nah don't think to much.

you are able to control several units and it does have the feel of advanced wars on DS without grid. the concept are same, there are resources/paddy field to conquer, statue/jizo that act as unit spawn place or towers that will do 1 damage in the beginning of each player turn. the AI unit and level design is smart, the game doesn't feel too hard or too easy, but the challenge is hard and sometimes you have to repeat few times to get all skulls (like stars from mobile games)

the music, gameplay and graphics of this game are well done made. the control however does have a bit of problem. I use logitech wireless x-input, I think this game was planned to be steam and mobile game, and to pick a unit from a controller you have to use dpad , sometimes a unit won't be selected -- this is just minor issue and maybe the problem didn't exist if you use mouse as you can select by clicking the unit. I just like to use controller if possible.

I saw the credits and I didn't find japanese name on it.. or maybe I just missed it, I thought the developers are from Japan, but it's not -- well, it's not important where they come from as long as they brought great game to play!

I somehow acquired this game through some sort of bundle and decided to give it a shot. I have to say that I was immediately impressed from the start. The art-style, while cartoonish, is eye-catching and flowed very well. Games that feature turn-based combat are most certainly not a new concept, but the idea of eating the skulls of your enemies to heal and level up is certainly different. Moving characters around with the mouse does admittedly take some getting used to. I wouldn't go as far as to say that this is the best turn-based strategy game I've ever played, but I am hard-pressed to find any major faults with it. Certainly grab it during a sale or in a bundle (like I did) if you can.

I wanted to like this game, but the unit interaction was too limited (there are only 8 unit types and the optimum strategy was always stall by double teaming each unit the AI sends until the AI brings out their general and he invariably overextends), the range of attack was too ambigious (due to using rather imprecise "rings of movement" rather then a grid or hex map) leading to a lot of frustrating restarts because I thought I was just out of range of something and the AI opponent proved me wrong), and the story was too innane for me to sink my teeth into. It's not a *terrible* TBS, but it's not very good either. YMMV, but I can't really recommend this game, even with as little competition as this game has in its genre, there are better games 2, 10, ad 15 years old. Pretty much anything by Nippon Ichi is better than this.

A 2D tactical RPG, Skulls of the Shogun takes inspiration from other classic games like Final Fantasy Tactics, and Advance Wars. Taking place in a colorful cartoon world, Skulls of the Shogun takes this inspiration and rolls with it in all sorts of fun and intuitive ways.

Set in ancient Japan, you take the role of a recently deceased Shogun. Killed by his own lieutenant during battle, he is relegated to the afterlife as a skeleton. Faced with waiting in line with thousands of other fallen soldiers to the end of time waiting to get into the afterlife, the general instead decides to take matters into his own hands and raises an army to push his way to his rightful reward.

The playful art style mixes well with the almost constant shade of humour in the game. Dialogue and character choices are both funny, and light hearted. The third wall is broken often as the characters question not only the game mechanics, but the player's actions. This cleverness tends to fade a little as the game proceeds, but not so much that it isn't still funny at times.

Each character class has a unique look and animations. The only fault visually is occasionally the screen becomes crowded with units and objects and it can be difficult to pick out the object you want, though the game does try to assist with a pop up when several items are selected close together.

Each battle is a 1v1 turn based affair. The game starts you out with very basic commands and units and does a good job of dishing out new elements with each new battle. Every different unit comes with it's own stats and abilities. Infantry have solid defence and good knockback, but are slow and don't deal that much damage. Calvary have long movement range and high attack, but no knockback. There are various other units like archers and magic casters to fill out the ranks. Your general is also controllable in battle and gains new abilities as the story progresses.

Each of these units can be upgraded during any single battle in the unique manner of eating the skulls of fallen foes, even though as they will tell you themselves, it's pretty gross. Each skull adds hit points to your units including your general, and when 3 skulls are consumed your unit becomes a demon and gains an extra action each turn. This extra action can be extremely useful in most battles. Along the way you will also find various potions and power ups to assist you in winning.

On later maps you will also be tasked with some minor resource management. Rice paddies can be conquered to give you rice to pay for new troops at barracks. There are also other buildings to be conquered to give you access to more powerful units. Rice paddies are limited, and each one including the other buildings can be conquered by the opposing force at any time. Controlling the map becomes very important on these levels.

Each map has different objectives, and several can be won in different ways. Defeating the enemy general, defeating all troops, or moving a unit to a specific marker may all be ways to win. Several maps have multiple stages and differing objectives in each stage. This with the overlapping humour keeps the game fresh and fun throughout.

This is a fun game with a long campaign, multiplayer options and a ton of laughs. With a regular price of $10.99 on Steam it's definitely a bargain, and will fill up hours of your time. If you are a fan of strategy games, good humour and want a game that is easy to get into, this is a great one for you.

An undead turn based tactics strategy game with an original unit movement twist. Multiplayer might be a bit empty but the campaign is definitely worth a play through and the adaptation to PC from mobile and console is pretty decent.
