A Masterpiece !

Skulls of the Shogun is a 2D Turn-Based Strategy game. This game has a colorful cartoon style that makes it enjoyable and visually friendly.

With a comic and a good story, it takes place in the ancient Japan. The story begins in the battlefield, after the "General Akamoto" (you) got betrayed by one of his lieutenants. Stealing your name and your sword.

In the afterlife, your mission is recover your name and get your revenge against the imposter.

Fighting against undead and rival clans through many challenging levels.

Talking about gameplay, every team has 5 moves per turn, 3 different kind of soldiers and 3 kind of wizards plus a general, game ends when you kill the enemy general. Every character has its own hability and battle stats.

Soundtrack is well made, relaxing and smooth.

Co-op featur it's a funny experience, up to 4 players you will have a good time with your friends.

A lot of fun packaged in this great game, definetily a must have.

10 / 10

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.

Skulls of the Shogun is an amazing TBS. After finishing the game itself, I liked every singe bit of it, even with the added levels. There are different ways to get different units and the controls are incredibly simple, even if there so many things to remember and get used to. The level designs are great and the overall level itself gives people a challenge. They would have to think it through before making a move. I would recommend this game to anyone who wants to have fun, have time to kill, or both as the levels can be pretty funny at some times and can be long too.

After playing through the full (post early access) release, the verdict is in and I can confidently say that Skulls of the Shogun is a winner. This quirky turn-based strategy game seems simple at first, but there are actually some surprisingly deep levels of nuance and complexity beneath the surface. You play as a Japanese swordsman General who is trying to reclaim his stolen identity in the afterlife. The art style is very unique and really well done. The cast of characters and story are also very cool. The dialogue, in particular, is a highlight. I wasn't expecting much from that aspect of a seemingly simple strategy game, but I was pleasantly surprised at how funny and entertaining it was.

So the aesthetic portions of the game are definitely good, but what of the actual gameplay, you ask? In short, it's pretty damn good. Gameplay is turn based, but on each turn you have 5 "orders" that can be performed. Your team is comprised of various types of units (warriors, cavalry, archers), each of which has their own strengths and weaknesses. Instead of moving on tiles like other strategy games, the actions in this game are more free-roaming. Units are able to move anywhere they want, within a certain radius, and are also able to continue moving after performing an action, which adds to the level of strategy involved. One of your main goals is to eat the skulls of defeated opponents, which restores health. However, if a unit is able to eat 3 skulls, they transform into a Demon, which enables them to perform 2 actions per turn, which is a huge advantage. Gameplay becomes a delicate balancing act of attacking, positioning and staying alive long enough to power up.

Outside of these main elements, there are a number of other nuances (summoning monks with special powers, forming spirit walls, environmental hazards, deciding when to bring your general into battle, and more) that add many layers of complexity to the basic strategy. Every level seems to provide some new elements to learn or deal with, and this keeps the main campaign fresh from start to finish. There's no padding at all. The main campaign lasts several hours (more if you play on a higher difficulty or attempt to complete the set of special goals for each level) and is worth the price of admission alone. In addition, the game also features online, local and asynchronous multiplayer matches. So there is plenty of content here for both casual and competitive types.

All in all, this game is solid and brings some really cool twists to the turn-based strategy genre. If you are into that type of thing, pick this one up. And if not, well, this could be the game that makes you a fan. Check it out.
