Epic Battle Simulator
Epic Battle Simulator review
With its low polygon design and abundant cutscene sequences, you might not think that Epic Battle Simulator is a game worth spending your time on. Once you pick this game up the truth is quite the contrary, and you’ll be playing for hours.
Essence of Epic Battle Simulator - 4/5
Epic Battle Simulator is a game that requires you to build an army and select from different classes of troops to fight against enemies. Aesthetically, this is a combat title, but gameplay-wise, it’s more about choosing your troops strategically. There are different classes of soldiers, such as Warrior, Archer, Pistolero, Fighter, Sagittarius, Spearman, and Hammer among others. You can fight against the enemy in preset battles, or you can build your own test battle.
To win the game, you should achieve the perfect positioning of your troops. There are some configurations that work and some that don’t, and you should figure this out as you progress. Also, as you start you only have access to limited slots for troops, but this number increases as you unlock items and make purchases.
Graphics and Audio - 4/5
The graphics in this game are simple and creative. The game is played from an isometric perspective which is an actively rendered 2D backdrop with 3D moving characters at the foreground. The biggest problem with this game is that the view is fixed, meaning you are likely to get lethargic after playing for too long. The menus are few and simply designed, and the entire UI is appropriate for the mood of the game.
Controls - 3.5/5
The combat is entirely passive, and the only thing that you’re required to do is find the best positioning for your troops. Besides that, there is no input from you once the action begins. While this means that you don’t have to be weighed down by unnecessary controls, it also means that the game can easily become too passive. You can select troops from the menus to the active battle slots by simply tapping on their avatar and dragging to the desired position.
Immersion - 3.5/5
Epic Battle Simulator is a game that you can always come back to, specifically because of how simple yet riveting it is. There’s minimal action on your part other than selecting which troops to position where, and soon the game becomes a bit monotonous. It still happens if you do decide to test each and every troop type available, even the unlockable ones. The battle becomes repetitive, and that might just be your incentive to put the game down.
