Presented in pixel art and set in a future post-apocalyptic setting, Convoy is a squad based tactical roguelike in its core. You travel with your combat vehicles and convoy across a wasteland to find parts needed to repair your broken spaceship. During your journey you will encounter strangers in randomized scenarios by picking up radio signals. Depending on the choices you make, signals can either lead to tactical combat, text based dialogue or chance based role-play. Whatever choice you make, you need to keep your convoy and its cargo safe from raiders, privateers and other enemies. Keep upgrading your vehicles, as death is permanent in Convoy. FEATURES - A new take on tactical combat: Combat plays out in real time as a high-speed car chase where you need to position your units and use abilities to maximise their effectiveness. - Exploration pays: You will encounter many different radio signals, each with a text based event. What doesn’t kill you may reward you with loot. - Fully customizable units: Each unit can be upgraded and outfitted with different weapons and abilities, allowing you to customize them to your needs. - A randomized planet: Each play-through features different main and side objectives, events, choices, and different consequences to your actions. - A cold war turning hot: Three factions vie for control over the planet, your actions tip the scales of balance making you an enemy to everyone. As each faction grows in strength, you need to keep up. - Permadeath at the core: Knowing one wrong move could lead to certain death puts you constantly on edge.

Convoy: A Tactical Roguelike Reviews

Convoy is a solid tactical roguelike. While it doesn't offer much to make it stand out from the pack, and the repetitiveness doesn't give it the staying power of the genre's best entries, it is a fun distraction for people looking to switch things up from FTL.

The retro era style of graphics and gameplay that’s best enjoyed in short bursts is a good fit for the mobile platform. It may not be as exciting as a flamethrowing guitarist chasing down folks escaping from a post-apocalyptic dictator, but it's still a refreshing take on a genre looking for a new lease on life.

To be clear, I quite enjoyed Convoy but I enjoyed the PC version far more. I purchased Convoy on Steam after playing the review copy from the publisher and had a much better experience. Convoy still presents a challenge in its PC form, but it’s the challenge that Convoy Games intended players to experience.

On the whole, Convoy is a fun-enough game to play. But rather than making me want to play Convoy more, it made me want to play other games similar to Convoy, instead. It pulled me into the concept again and how much I enjoy it, but not the game itself, which is a shame. I went into Convoy with a nostalgic hype from the days where I played FTL a lot more, but rather than being surprised and hooked, I was a little disappointed.
