I have been waiting patiently for Nerdook's latest creation, and I'm glad I waited! This game, in two words, TOTALLY ROCKS!!! There's a elegance to the game as you balance your offensive mercs with defensive drones, trying to outwit the randomly generated foe that has been placed before you. I rate this game 9/10.

Really great game =D!
One tad bit I don't like is that you can't go back and kill the previous bounties to get more money.
I'm on my last life and last level, but I don't have enough money to hire/exchange/upgrade mercenaries....
This pretty much makes me stranded.
I do wish there was a fast forward button, instead of agonizing when there is no way to win and slowing watching yourself brought to defeat.

I give this one high marks, too. When I sit to play a casual game for five, ten minutes while I eat, then find myself still sitting there an embarrassing amount of time later, that's a good game. The more-or-less turn-based action is great too; you can do other things while you're playing. It reminds me of SteamBirds or Elements in that way.

Just wondering, has anyone else

not been able to go rogue at the end of the game?

I just sit there and click the button over and over, and nothing ever happens...

K, I sympathize with your Kobayashi Maru. Have you tried to

get one of your faster units to open up territory close to your opponents base and then use your defensive turrets offensively; plop them down as close to the enemy base as possible

This strategy worked quite well for me.

I can't go rogue either. I've passed the game 3 times but can't click the "go rogue" button.

Full unit stat disclosure might be nice. Some seem to do reduced damage against certain types and it is not made at all clear exactly which, or why.

Same here, I cannot load another players new rogue army to play. The Load Army button just sits there and nothing happens ? bummer want to play this game more and more and more...

[Loading and exporting armies uses the Kongregate API for that, so if you want to use those features, you'll have to play the game at Kongregate. -Jay]

Don't get your hopes up with the "go rogue" feature on Kongregate.

All it seems to do is allow you to save your current team for other people to play against and rate. Your game ends there.

To have more fun yourself, retire quietly.

It will let you keep one of your units for your next play-through (but it will become level 1)

I didn't like this game much because the bad guys have widely varying strategies.

Some of them turret up like crazy.

Some have small fast units to grab territory quickly.

Some have lots of tanky units with some strikers behind them.

You need different configurations to beat different baddies. However this is NOT easily done since there are no "spare" slots. I have an army of heavies and rocket/snipers but it gets totally destroyed by the turret dropper with quick territory grabbers.
I would have to sell and replace ALL my robots pretty much to be able to counter...which costs a fortune and then Id have the same problem in the next fight.

Since you cant repeat missions for more cash, you get stuck.
Bad game design.
