How horrible of me, to have forgotten to write a review for this game. Go and play it.

Greed Corp is a great example of a game with a few, simple mechanics that is easy to learn and harder to master. I liked most things about it - the low count of units and associated rules, the gameplay mechanics (especially the collapsing terrain), the visual style. 10/10 will buy for my friends, too.

Inčīgs TBS gāmis ar elementāru spēles mehāniku - pretinieku ir vai nu jānomīca vai jānobrucina. PvP varētu būt vēl jautrāks pasākums par kampaņu.

An amazing tactical puzzle game, where I have spend many hours playing the Android version, as well as the Steam version. Like most of the great puzzles, a set of reasonably simple rules combine to produce an amazingly complicated situaion.

greed corp is a turn based hex game but different to most strategy games. the difference is its much more simple. but that is what makes it awesome! so simple yet so fun.

the game takes place on some world were either incredibly cute walker like robots or people piloting incredibly cute walker type machines live. the place they live is also so way high up in the sky that it would probably take half an hour to hit the ground if you fell off. and its divided into hexes that you fight over.

the fighting or gameplay is very simple. you can either build a barracks or harvester to start off with. harvesters harvest the floor to make you money but also destroy the floor as they do it. and when a piece of land is destroyed enough it falls down into the clouds taking everything with it.

in other words harvesters can be an effective weapon for destroying your foes land while making you money in the process.

when you build a barracks you can build walkers. walkers can claim 1 hex forward per turn and battle your opponents walkers.

except the battles are little more just basic math as the walkers simply cancel each other out. so who ever has more walkers will win.

and once you claim a hex you can build on it also the more hexes you have the more money you get per turn.

the 2 other things you can build are the air ship and the cannon. the air ship transports all the walkers on one hex across the map and are the only way of getting around late game as nearly everything is broken... most of the time.
the cannon on the other hand is used to shoot a hex. when a hex is shot it moves down one level getting more broken.

it is the same thing as what a harvester does and when a hex losses all of its levels it crumbles into the clouds. cannons also kill 5 walkers so your foes will have less men.

so that's basically how the game goes you harvest stuff break the land while doing it then get cannons and air ships and either try and conquer your opponents land or break it.

also the theme of the game is very nice with the greedy theme being taken very light heartedly and the way fighting works having no actual fighting or blood at all. if I gave this game a ERSB rating it would probably be PG for very mild violence.

as for the real rating I give it a 8/10 and a 9/10 if its on sale for $3 or less. for it being a really good game to play with friends
but maybe not so much with sore losers. it also has a great steampunk style awesome funky soundtrack and last of all great mechanics.

Good game and I really enjoyed it, but it's also fairly flat in depth. There really isn't a lot going on in it. Each battle plays out pretty much the same as the last, with some variations due to differences in map design. Still, I enjoyed the unique combat and how the terrain worked well enough to recommend it. I think everyone should check it out, but after you get how to fight/win there really isn't anything else going on.

I really enjoyed this game!! The music is great and I don't like playing against other people, but the computers are still really challenging. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys this type of game.

Quite an interesting turn-based game, if only more people were to play this game online it would be nice.
I'll say buy this only if you have friends to play this game with.

If you like strategy games and every now and then all you want to do is play a simple strategy game, then this game is the best option.

The AI is challenging and the game is logic based. So its not about luck, not about different units and balancing, its solely about thinking and planning your next move before your opponent.

Really really interesting and unique and definetly deserves to be bought by any strat lover out there... Unless you like luck based strategy games... then this game might prove to be too challenging for you.

Personally, I liked this game, but the play experience never evolves and neither does the strategy. Very basic game with a text driven story to fill space and to satisfy the parallels with the industrial revolution and WW1.

Too sloooooooow, could have been more fun is I hadn't have to wait 10 seconds for each action. Also, the controls seem a little uncomfortable, made mistakes several times.

War leaves nothing. Even the triumph doesn't leave you anything.
Our effort to survive will eventually take everything we have. But we have to keep this war.

Most of all, the 'crucial' harvest mechanic inspired by "the industrial revolutions and their destructive effects on the environment" is quite impressive. Seeing still working harvester fading off under the clouds with the fragments of the land just collapsed by the destructive effect of the harvester itself hurts somewhere inside of me every time.

This game was quite an interesting game. I enjoyed the strategy and gameplay for the game, but after a bit, it felt a little repetitive and I was using the same strategy every single time to win. Overall, it was a fun game and the concept was pretty cool.

Rating: 7.4/10

I first found this game on Android and it recently came up on a Humble bundle. I must admit I very much doubted that it'd scale well to PC, after all there are so many games that just don't scale to a PC well. Greed Corp isn't an exception to this. It's begging for a windowed mode. Let me explain.

The strategy and gameplay is still pretty good it's a nice game to just sit and play. It's very area or control based, but doesn't tax your concentration too much. You could easily be playing this whilst watching something else on your computer. If you could window the game it'd be great to multi-task on the computer with. Sadly, I don't seem to be able to do that here.

Personally, I'd recommend putting the game on your phone or tablet rather than PC. It's a decent little game and has a fair play time (at least two hours to complete the campaign), but isn't really a fully fledged PC game.

Definitely a game worth buying. I got it out of a Humble Bundle, but definitely would pay full price for it now that I've played it.

Greed Corp is a turn-based strategy game that you can play either singleplayer, vs up to three pcs, or multiplayer. The story is a basic one for each of the four playable groups; however, their differences in-game are graphical only. The full story took me around twelve or so hours to complete.

Greed Corp uses a hexagon-tile battlefield in which you can use the land in order to gain more money to buy units and buildings. However, the more you use the land to gain money, the more it deteriorates and disappears completely. It is a delicate balance between building units to conquer land and kill enemy units, using the land for money before your opponents do, and conserving the strength and number of tiles in your control. The win condition is to be the last player left standing.

I greatly enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a turn-based strategy game. Learning how to play the game is fairly easy, but there is definitely strategy to be had in this game.
