Reviews

“Aeon Command satisfies the things I want in a good strategy game: variability in play, upgrades and a tactical challenge that requires managing many aspects.”
8/10 – Seb, IndieGameHQ

“Aeon Command is a decidedly fun time that can take as little or as much time as you’d like. It’s easy to play, quick to jump into and loads of fun.”
Brian Rubin, SpaceGameJunkie

“Aeon Command is a surprisingly in-depth strategy game despite it being easy to play. I found myself playing match after match, just so I could throw points into my fleet upgrades to see how much of a difference it makes.”
8/10 – Vince Paone, Dads Gaming Addiction

Aeon Command is a deceivingly challenging tug-of-war game with strategy elements that almost reminds me of an RTS. You don't have to command units, they automatically attack the enemy. The only thing the player does is manage resources, applies powerups (buffs, debuffs), deploys weapons (nukes, emps), and purchases upgrades for units. The more obvious thing players must do is build units. I found it relaxing, rewarding, and late games were challenging and exhilarating.

There's 3 factions to choose from and they all have their own unique appearance and they all have their own weapons. However, they have similar basic unit types which keeps it fairly well balanced. I say fairly because there are some different support units for each faction. The similarities will be noticeable in attack units. I had little trouble identifying an enemy ship and launching the appropriate counter. Watching the space battles unfold is quite interesting, it reminded me of Battlestar Galactica for some reason. A word of warning, this game starts off unforgivingly and you may lose many of your first matches. Does it get better? Yes it does, because of two types of upgrades. There are game-wide upgrades that you can upgrade from the main menu and these are purchased using "gear parts" you acquire from destroyed enemies. These upgrades are applied to every game thereafter. The second type of upgrade is the in-game upgrades which must be purchased with scrap and these only apply for the duration of that match. Generally, upgrades modify weapons and armour but there are also resource collection upgrades which I researched first because the best economy almost always wins.

The campaigns are short and aren't full of narrative. If you want a deep story, you won't find it in this game. HOWEVER, I recommend this game because of high replay value and the gameplay is well polished.

The soundtrack is more like ambience and I found it added to the atmosphere. Sound effects from weapons to explosions are also well done. The only sound effect that drove me nuts was the spacial anomaly sound effect which you'll only hear in 1 or 2 campaign missions anyway.

Pros:
  • RTS elements that still keeps you involved in the battle.
  • Well balanced units that still stand apart and look interesting.
  • Nice sound effects and music.
  • UPGRADES HERE, UPGRADES THERE, UPGRADES EVERYWHERE! \o/
  • Straight forward tutorial.
  • Unit and upgrade prices are reasonable.

Cons:
  • Short campaigns with little narrative.
  • No unit descriptions except one-time descriptions in the campaign.
  • The enemy will sometimes spam tugs which will tow your entire fleet to their dooms.

Neutral:
  • Unforgiving for new players.


I had a lot of fun with this game and I am absolutely astonished that (as of purchasing this game) no one in my friends list has this on their wishlist or owns it. So if you're reading this, I highly recommend it for it's replay value and the great gameplay. 8/10

Simple game that reminds me a bit of the early Epic War titles. You churn out ships that smash themselves against the enemy ships and try to overwhelm the opposing force by clustering and favorable ship matchups. It isn't super-deep but it is enjoyable, and if you get it on sale for a buck or two then its worth the price.

This is a great little casual game and is certainly one thats easy to learn and hard to master.

It is a tug of war strategy game, where you control a unique faction to help gain dominance over the Aeon Nebula! There are 3 factions to be played with in all to complete the campaign mode, each containing 8 segments. You will need to gather resources, produce and protect ships and eventually destroy the opposition mothership. Don't forget to use your upgrades like I did for half the game.

It has trading cards, the achievements are relatively easy to get and the multiplayer mode could be fun but i've yet to try that.

This game is worth its full price on the catalogue but does appear in bundles every now and then...

To be honest, this game was surprisingly good. I wasn't expecting this much fun from a game that costs $2.99 (not including the discount!) It's scaled very well, and despite being a multiplatform release, looks pretty good on pc and does give you the choice of using a keyboard, a mouse, or a combination of the two. The enemies aren't stupid and winning on normal can often be a challenge depending on what faction you are versing, and hard is actually pretty challenging. Also, the research and upgrading tab means you can actually use different strategies and it isn't just the same game over and over. And finally, the idea for a "Scrambled" faction is brilliant!

If you are looking for a short video to show you what the game is, here's a link to a 2 minute one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jUFD9CUA_Q

And if you're looking for a more indepth look at the game, here's a link to an approximately 20 minute video that looks at multiple modes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ83YypDxdM&feature=youtu.be

Sometimes games are too expensive without worth of it. But sometimes games are too cheap and they worth much more. Aeon is a game of this kind. I got a discount on it and was like "why not to give it a try?". So I did and I was amazed by this simple but very good casual gameplay. It is very similiar to tower defence + MOBA games. Actually it is the wonderful indie child of Starcraft and Dota.

Pluses

+ Beautiful graphic
(it's simple but still has deep atmosphere of it)
+ Nice music and sounds
(it is not anoying like it happens in some casual games)
+ Great system of developing
+ Nice campaining and plot
(it's kinda usual but still keeps the smell of casual space strategy, could I ask for more?)
+ Multyplayer
(play this game with your friend is a good chance to solve some argues. Jokes aside!)
+ Additional plus... I don't know why. I just love it. :)

___
Would love to see in the game...
Actually not minuses at all, just my wishes.

- No modes
(there is the only map. And I'd like to see much more ways to fight with an enemy)
- No characters
(yes, the game is beautiful designed, but I would love to see some characters, like commanders or alians in there)
- No quests
(why not? There is a huge area to make some plot twiestes)

Thank you, delepores, for this great game. I will spend a lot of my free time in there. Quite so!
