A Simple Game but Fun! [KAMGUSTA's REVIEW]

I'll begin by saying this is an iOS port, so it was thought for touchscreens. By the way, it works great also with the mouse! :-)

I am very impressed by how much fun this game is. You play as the artillery man of a battle ship (in later part of the game, of a fleet!) and you have to shoot down enemy ships, helicopters and aircrafts... taking also care of all they can throw at you! While you advance the game you will be able to upgrade you ships and to gain access to different weapons: beaconing, EMPs, time distortion bombs...

Graphic is nice, sound is pleasant, story is unobtrusive (i skipped all the cutscenes... all you need to know is that you have to destroy the usual villain and his personal army!) and there are also last level's bosses to fight against!

Yes, it is not a blockbuster nor an AAA game (it should be a port of a mobile game!), and this should be clear by by now, thanks also to videos and screenshots from the game page, but it's fun and addictive and I evaluate this as the most important aspect of a game!
It reminds me of some neo-geo coin-ops of the '80, and this is definitely a plus!

Unfortunately is does not last long: just 2-3 hours. It also does not have a great repeatability because there aren't different difficult levels or different game modes. :(

Advice: use the keyboard for launching the special attacks!

Best played with Mouse (and Keyboard) (or iOS)

I like boats and ships very much, I enjoyed the main ship with flak gun backup and the 2nd ship with the flak gun and the helicopter. I never used any other ships because they seemed inferior all around. I beat the entire game on the first playthrough I enjoyed it that much! I only wish there was more ships, that was my only complaint :).

Remember how hectic Missile Command is? This game is like that except it has infinite missiles, options, and powerups. It's also on water.

Mind you, at certain point those powerups and options are going to be flexed like nobody's business. I've played through the entire game and I can assure you the powerups aren't used from time to time. When they are used, boy, expect them to be used.

Need actual gameplay to convince you? Here's my impressions video of it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KDSxrRhHom4

You can finish this game for 2 hours. Is it worth it? You tell me.

I don't recommend this game unless they come up with more missions and more ships.

This game is surprisingly fun. It plays a bit like Missile Command. You play the part of a ship or fleet trying to defend against incoming enemies. You have to fire ahead of them because your weapons have travel time. You can upgrade your ships, buy new ones. It's a very short game, 2-3 hours. There's not a lot of variety in the ships. But it was a fun way to pass the time. I certainly wouldn't recommend this at full price, but if it hits 75%+ off, one of the Steam sales, then it may be worth a look.

Yeah, OK. I love this little game. It's quirky, fun, and easy to play. Got it in a very inexpensive bundle. way, WAY worth it. Got my giggles and fun.

A mix of 1942, missle command and a few others. WELL worth playing.

pros:
-runs on linux
-simple controls
-easy learning curve
-kids say female lead is "way awesome"

cons:
-scaling issue? Could just be me
-no overall volume control (can adjust music only)
-cannot shoot into/under the left side overlay. Needs "expert mode" where keys are used instead of the overlay.

Have yet to try Big Picture'ing it or using a gamepad. But so far, AWESOME!

As our Heroine says:
"Thank you Taxpayers!"

An enjoyable mashup of missile command meets 1942 that will suck you in an cripple your wrists.

Far from perfect the lack of hotkeys for specials means you will require twitchy and acurate wrist flicks and a certian degree of grinding, replaying levels is required to purchase upgrades if you want to get max stars for each level.

About 1/3 the way through and its already starting to get a tad ott with what goes on at once.

Runs fine FHD with max settings on an i7 2.4ghz, r9 265x laptop.

Recived as part of a bundle well worth a buy if your an old school arcade game fan and is avail under £3.49, not sure I would pay more for it than that.

If your looking for a little game that will make you feel a little challenged with some basic aspects of gaming this will do it for you, but if your looking for a game with more playtime than 2 hrs this will not do it for you.

Bite size bit of fun, buy if you like bullet hells and missiles a-plenty. 1 Con, no save feature, so end the game in one sit if you wish to go all the way.

If you love old school type action shooters such as Battleships or 1942 then you're going to love Battle Group 2 as it combines the best of those, it's so easy to just pick up and play with no complicated controls or instructions and with minimal setup as well so you'll be up and playing in a couple of minutes. In fact it's such a breeze that any fool can play it.

This is strictly a single player game with 30 stages in the campaign and starts off very easy and gets progressively more difficult with each stage that you complete, there are no difficulty options so everyone plays the same game. Each stage is very short and your job is to control a single ship at the start and two ships after your have upgraded to fend off various waves of planes and helicopters which can be shot down with your ships guns or missiles which can also be upgraded at the end of every stage when your scores and rewards are displayed. You control a primary ship which is your main weapon and a support ship which offers backup and there are a total of 8 ships that you can collect and use throughout the game.

Ok graphics and sound i have to say is really quite impressive, really nice detail in the sea which flows quite nicely and all the ships behave as they should but the sound is far more impressive, guns have a real nice meaty sound as they should and the planes also sound very good and they do sound like jets too. The voice overs for the story content is nicely done and there are some good background voices too for the ships, the controls are really so easy and all you have to worry about is moving the mouse to aim at the targets and then the mouse button to fire your weapons.

This is a very casual game so you can play it as much or as little as you like, it's just a great load of fun but it's very addictive i can tell you !! Depending on how well you do in any given stage you are rewarded with a number of stars so reach 90% of your goal on that stage and you'll be rewarded with 3 stars and get over 100% and you'll receive 4 stars but they are golden so can you collect all the stars? Some stages although not all that difficult will leave you pulling your hair out especially if you want all those golden stars, sometimes i found myself on 99% and thought there's no way i can do that but your will keep trying until you get there.

In summary just ask yourself do you like planes and ships and want a good fun time without reading loads of instructions or have a long winded tutorial or without needing to know what you have to do to get any where? If that all sounds good to you then you could do a lot worse than boot this baby up, oh and by the way there is more content to come and the Developers are rather active in the community and are a friendly bunch of souls so why not give it a go? I personally rate it a rather good 82/100 but that may improve after more content arrives but have fun playing the game.

Game plays similar to the old arcade classic missle command , except you are on water firing from ships. There is a decent story but what stands out is the ability to purchase better ships , upgrades and you can also replay any mission to gain more resources and better stars.
Taking down enemies gets a bit hard with the regular missiles so will be depending support attacks and powers.
Overall a decently priced game that works fine and is a good time killer.
7/10

Cute game :) More addictive than I would have thought at first.
Though, it would have been 1000% Better as a WW2 game (I'm that kind of person).
But, for modern warfare, it's a great little shoot 'em up. Highly recommended.

Although, if I do have a tiny piece of advice, before you spend oil points into updating the little corvettes,
just save for the HP Destroyer and the Tico Cruiser. Trust me :) Really worth doing.

An awesome remake of a classic, I dare even say, "the classic". The game I refer to is missle command. Yes, the 1980 classic gets some rennovations in Bane's side-scroller action shooter, though the "side-scrolling" is simulated but still a game that really tests your timing and prediction skills. Best played with a touchscreen but works equally as well with a gaming mouse or decent track pad or track ball (my fav). It's a fun little escape game, that will have you going "just one more time." At $8, its worth the price, on sale - it's a "no pass up."

Graphics = Decent (runs smooth on my i5-HD3000 lappie)
Sounds = Very good (immursive)
Gameplay = Missle Command style Shooter
Replayability = Yes (in challenges this game presents)
Controls = Yes (just point and click, the rest is up to you)

When I first played this, the first thing that popped into my head was nostalgia, Finally a game with a modern twist but also keeping in spirit with the challenging nature of classic arcade style games. For the price it was defiantly worth purchasing and reliving the classic arcade style days once again. Best of luck to the devs, hope to see more games from them soon!

This game is simply amazing. Get this one on a Steam sale, and you will have great fun playing it. Even though it's a bit short it sure is a great "old school" shooter. 9/10 .

Great old school fun with the added dimension of multiple ships and upgrades.

Although not related to gameplay, it would be better without the settings window at the start, those things annoy me.
