» SunAge is an enjoyable RTS
with a visual style similar to the 2D offerings of the 90's. It has a great formations system
and gives the player a feeling of issuing orders to their units, not micromanaging them.
»… The units are very well detailed 2D sprites
and they animate smoothly to boot. «
»… Controlling your units is … a smooth experience.
Once you click on a controllable group of units, a blue circle encompasses your mouse cursor. This denotes the currently selected group's weapons range (a very handy feature
). … By right-clicking an enemy, you tell your group to make that type of target their highest priority. They will still attack other targets as needed, however, to survive. This really gives you the feeling of giving orders to your troops
"…upon closer inspection you will find a very fun game that holds strategic thinking in the highest regard and offers a large amount of flexibility in its base building and unit usage."
»… in SunAge, the developers wanted to create something where strategy
was … the utmost important.
… We feel they succeeded
in their efforts. «
»… upon closer inspection you will find a very fun game that holds strategic thinking in the highest regard
and offers a large amount of flexibility in its base building and unit usage. «
» It is the kind of small release that the 'big' companies out there ought to take note of and learn from.
