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.
