About This Game

The Cyclist: Tactics is a turn-based pro-cycling tactics and strategy game in which you lead a small team of riders from humble beginnings to topping the podium of a grand tour.

The Game World

Race in a fictional world through a range of procedurally generated tours and classics, each individually themed to ensure that every session is unique and different. Featuring changeable weather, an original, multi-layered soundtrack that adjusts to the current race situation, and a board-game-like aesthetic, The Cyclist: Tactics provides an engaging visual and audio experience as you put your tactical skills to the test.


Race Tactics & Resource Management

Guide a team of up to four riders through multi-day tours and grueling classics. Use your riders’ strengths to your advantage while utilizing team strategy to offset their weaknesses. Slipstream and positioning are vitally important, as is the varied terrain with flats, hills, mountains, tricky technical, and cobble sections that influence rider performance. There is no dice rolling in The Cyclist: Tactics to either save you or screw you over; you have just your decision making to blame.

Riding along, laying down a good pace to catch escapees, attacking, performing lead-outs, hanging on to the back of the peloton for dear life, and participating in sprints all require careful planning as you attempt to manage your riders' limited resources. But be careful not to wear them out before the big mountain stage the following day!

Career & Team Management

Start your career in the amateur league with just yourself as a young cyclist and a local sponsor to secure a few more no-names on the team roster. Manage your team’s race participation and team finances, plan rider fitness peaks, scout for young talent, hire and fire riders, and please your sponsors with good race results to eventually compete for the top spot in the pro league. The manager aspect is simple but strategically deep. With a maximum roster of six riders and nine races to pick per season, it doesn’t take long to get your team lined up and ready to go.


Progression & RPG Mechanics

Riders level up as they gain experience through race participation and posting good results. Choose between six different specializations and five rider stats that can be mixed or focused on, allowing you to tune each rider with significant strengths and weaknesses to fill the niche your team needs.




Tactically-minded cycling enthusiasts, as well as anyone who fancies nuanced tactics, progression, and decision making, will find something to like in The Cyclist: Tactics.
