Rogue Planet

This is a multi-unit, turn-based Advanced Wars clone, with excellent character art in the cut scenes, an interesting and watchable storytelling approach. It does miss the mark on some of the gameplay basics like controls, for instance. There are several different unit types that use a rock, paper, scissor mechanic, so the game is all about positioning the right units, at the right place, and at the right time. When you don’t do this, your attacks can be ineffectual. It uses a mission-based structure and, while the early missions aren’t thrilling, they do serve to progress the story, although as I mentioned, the characters are outstanding and their dialogue is more compelling. Control-wise, it should be way easier to move a unit and it is way too easy to suicide a unit. The balance is not perfect either, but it is still playable. It currently has 1v1 multiplayer over Wifi and Bluetooth and Internet games are promised.
