"This is a fun game that I totally and horrifically suck at, but that's completely my fault and not the game's. :)"

このゲームについて

Who needs backstory? Who needs resource-gathering? Diplomacy is so last year. Gratuitous Space Battles cuts right to the chase of sci-fi strategy games, and deals with large, completely unjustified space battles between huge opposing space fleets.
Gratuitous Space Battles combines the visual appeal of an RTS, with the addictive unit-placement and design gameplay from tower defense games. In GSB, the player does not control individual ships at all during battle. The ships fight to a pre-determined set of orders and formations given to them by you before the battles.
GSB casts you as supreme space admiral, tasked with the design of individual spaceships, and the composition of your fleet, as well as general orders of engagement. This is not a twitch-based real time arcade game like many an RTS, but a game of careful thought, planning and big-picture strategy. Huge space battles can be won or lost depending on just how cleverly you balanced the needs of defensive shielding and armor against the expensive punch of laser cannons and plasma torpedoes.
GSB also features an innovative multiplayer challenge system. You can upload your ultimate fleet to serve as the enemy to other players, and keep track of how many other players have won and lost against your challenge. That way, you will never run out of cunningly designed enemies to battle against!
  • 4 different unlockable player races
  • Over 40 different ship hulls
  • Over 120 spaceship modules
  • Choice of skirmish vs AI, never-ending survival mode or play against other player’s fleets with the online challenge system
  • Play with different rules as each battle has different spatial anomalies to deal with.

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.

艦をカスタマイズして、艦隊を組んで、
出撃させたらあとは戦闘を眺めるゲーム。

カスタマイズのパーツは最初から全て使える
わけではないので、稼いでアンロックが必要。

カスタマイズは、防御特化や攻撃特化にして、
うまい具合に陣形を組んだりと、工夫が必要。

が、とりあえずデフォルトで用意されている
艦を適当に出撃させてただ戦闘を眺めている
だけでも個人的には楽しめました。

艦隊戦や機体のカスタマイズして戦わせるのが
好きな人にはオススメ。

銀河英雄伝説ばりに艦隊を編成して宇宙空間で闘うゲーム。または宇宙軍人将棋。
やることは部品の選定と攻撃優先度の設定、艦隊の陣形ぐらいなのでシンプルでとっつきやすい。
ただ、一度戦闘を始めると見てるだけなので暇になりがち。戦闘中に何かしら指示ができるとなお良かった。
