Sobre este jogo

Quem precisa saber a história? Quem precisa de coleta de recursos? Diplomacia é tão ano passado. Gratuitous Space Battles vai direto ao ponto de combate dos jogos de estratégia de ficção científica com muitas e completamente injustificadas batalhas espaciais entre grandes frotas espaciais.
Gratuitous Space Battles combina o apelo visual de um RTS (estratégia em tempo real) com um viciante sistema de posicionamento de unidades e a jogabilidade de jogos de defesa de torres. Em GSB, o jogador não controla espaçonaves individuais durante a batalha. As espaçonaves seguem um conjunto pré-determinado de ordens e formações escolhidas por você antes do início das batalhas.
GSB dá a você o posto de almirante supremo do espaço, encarregando-lhe com o desenvolvimento de cada espaçonave e com a composição da sua frota, bem como das ordens gerais de batalha. Este não é um jogo baseado em pequenas e insignificantes escolhas como muitos dos jogos de RTS por aí, mas um jogo que exige análise e planejamento cuidadosamente pensados e uma estratégia visando todo o jogo. Grandes batalhas podem ser vencidas ou perdidas dependendo somente em quão bem você equilibrou a necessidade de escudos defensivos e blindagem contra um caro ataque de canhões de laser e torpedos de plasma.
GSB também possui um inovador modo multijogador de desafios. Você pode enviar a sua melhor frota para servir de inimiga para outros jogadores e contar quantos jogadores venceram ou foram derrotados pelo seu desafio. Desse jeito, você nunca ficará sem inimigos brilhantemente projetados para guerrear!
  • 4 diferentes e destraváveis raças de jogador
  • Mais de 40 modelos de espaçonave
  • Mais de 120 módulos para personalizar as suas espaçonaves
  • Escolha entre partidas contra o computador, modo de sobrevivência sem fim ou jogue contra as frotas de outros jogadores com o sistema de desafio online
  • Jogue com diferentes regras já que cada batalha tem suas próprias anomalias espaciais para você lidar.

5/10: Hands-off strategy game that takes patience to learn

+ Great visuals
+ Extremely broad variety of modules and possible strategies
+ Satisfying once you get the hang of it

- After you design your ships and place them on the battlefield, all you do is watch the battle play out (you can't control anything)
- If you are looking for a quick "pick-up-and-play" game, this is not it. It took me about 2 hours to understand how things worked
- Unlocking everything takes very little effort
- Pace of the game is quite slow, even when sped up to the maximum of x4 speed

A couple of weeks ago I was in the mood for some strategic space combat - as I regularly am - and decided to revisit Gratuitous Space Battles. The game promises a straightforward brawl without the complications or delay presented by having any kind of story to get in the way.

First, you design your ships. There's a great deal of customization options available, but many are locked when you first begin the game. In order to unlock them, you'll need to play through the missions (more of "combat scenarios" as there is no story behind any of them). It's rather frustrating, almost feeling like the developer decided there needed to be some sense of progression in the game since there would be no story, but I found it to simply get in the way.

Once you've designed your ships, you select your scenario and plan out your ship deployment. Many times you will see the enemy deployment, but on harder difficulties the enemy deployment will be a mystery. After finalizing your deployment, you press play. And here lies the second central conceit of GSB - the battle plays out in front of you without any control. After starting the scenario, your ships fight the enemy on their own, based on the starting deployment and fairly detailed movement and targeting parameters you can give each ship in the planning phase.

I've found the AI to be - at times - frustratingly stupid, which can cripple your careful deployment. There is an option to retain manual control over your ships, allowing the game to play much more like a traditional RTS, and often times I resorted to that so that I could quickly change targets as the situation warranted. This feels like a concession, though, to unhappy players, as the game is clearly designed to be played in a manner where you set up all the pieces and then see what happens when you press start.

Still, with the ship design and deployment phase leading to you sitting back and watching your work unfold, it's very satisfying when everything works together just the way you envisioned it. GSB does a respectable job capturing what it would be like to be a fleet admiral who set the battle plan but had no direct control over the course of the fight (with the one caveat that the fleet admiral would be able to give orders throughout the fight as necessary).

The main problem I had, though, is that it just didn't hold my interest. While the lack of any story to get in the way of the action may be appealing to some, I found that there was no real reason to keep playing. Stories allow you to become invested in the game world, to identify with a character or a faction. Sometimes the story is just the experience of having explored the map and built your bases - you've invested time and effort into the game world. Here, there is nothing even like that.

Sure, there are some vague hints about the game universe in the faction descriptions, but the scenarios become a matter of simple trial and error. If one ship design doesn't work, just go back to the drawing board and pump out another design. There's no penalty if you fail, and there's no way that you can lead your navy to victory once the tide begins to turn against them...you just have to watch them die.

To be fair, an expansion has been released that adds in a Galactic Conquest mode, where you actually have a persistent campaign. But I'm not going to buy an expansion for a game unless I'm interested in seeing more, and GSB wasn't compelling enough for me to want more.

Simple but brilliant. I can't believe I've left it until now to realise how much fun there is to be had here.

Build your fleets, battles will auto-resolve (unless you take 'direct control') and then use your 'honour' payment (an amount that reduces the more units you field) to unlock new modules to fit better/different fleets.

Made by one person! The sequel is now in early-alpha too.

Oh god I love this game.

This game's style is build and run. You design ships, pretty detailed in that. You go into battle against a fleet of enemy ships. You place your ships in a layout. You program orders. You click start. You wait.

If you wipe out the enemies you win.

Great game mechanics there, and a pretty extensive customization range. Didn't knew this would've been this fun.

Great visuals too for a 2D game.

Lots of strategies involved, and I haven't even scratched the surface yet.

If what I told you is something that tickles your pickles you might want to take a look at this game.

It's hard. If there's one undeniable thing about this game, is that it's hard. Luckily, it's not "have an actual degree in rocket science" hard, so you'll manage. Especially since it's so beautiful (2D is really the best choice here and I love the style), you'll try and try again. The combat effects are probably the prettiest I've seen and attack ships on the shoulder of Orion didn't look as good when they were on fire.

Although I wish it had some plot. Maybe one day.
