Wargroove is the best turn-based strategy RPG that's come out in ages. With a near limitless content pool, a solid single-player campaign, and addictive multiplayer options, it should be around and entertaining its fans for years. Here's hoping it's the start of a new franchise, because I already want more.

Wargroove is the pixelated strategy game for a new generation of commanders. The shallow story doesn't deter from the intricate gameplay that makes Wargroove the perfect indie game for even the finest of tacticians.

Wargroove is a good tactics game, which manages to deliver nearly the same experience as advance wars all bundled with a big content, a massive level editor and diversified missiondesign, but also stays without little exceptions in the comfortzone of his template and struggles with some inconsequences in artwork and sound. Fans of Advance Wars and tacticsgames still are served best here and should definitely pick this one up.

Overall if you like a strategy game I can’t fail to recommend this, it is full of character and fun to play without being terribly difficult, but the game editor is amazing for giving you value for money. I thoroughly recommend this game.

Chances are if you enjoy tactics games, or the games Wargroove so clearly draws inspiration from, you're going to enjoy Wargroove. Mechanical changes to critical hits, and settlements, as well as the puzzle mode, beefy content editor, and overall unit balance make for a fairly enjoyable tactics game. Despite the litany that sets in from the campaign and lack of overall variety in the commanders, there's still a huge amount to love about Wargroove and the many ways to play it round out a tactics game that is easy to recommend.

So, Wargroove. It's a fantasy themed strategy RPG, built around commanding armies and claiming territory in a style more like RTSes than, say, Final Fantasy Tactics. It's a grid-based game with unit manufacturing, income, and objectives. Mechanically, how it works is pretty simple; You've got basically three kinds of buildings. Your stronghold, which if destroyed you lose the game; Unit-producing buildings; And villages, which produce money. At the start of a given match, you have a tiny little set of basics, just enough to start getting your first buildings locked down. Unlike the RTS comparison, here the buildings are all fixed, and you take a unit to them and capture them for your own use.
