    Same, is it lightweight and easy to run in the background? And or MP?

    No multiplayer.

    Runs on my overgrown tablet just fine.

    Fantastic game.

    My grades might suffer.

    Game confirmed to be good.

    I initially thought it was a little shallow and might get annoyingly repetitive, but actually the little chess like interactions mean there's a lot of hidden depth and decision making that might not be apparent at first.

    Can't go wrong for Ģ11

    Maybe not ftl levels of good but still a good one. Easy is piss-easy and hard is really hard. When most attacks have several different effects finding the perfect turns is usually quite challenging. The squads are kinda like ftl ships, each offering different challenges and the default one being the most balanced and having the easiest to use stuff.

    This game is tits.

    Just unlocked my first alternative set of mechs and it completely changes the playstyle through new mechanics. There are.... 8 more squads to unlock? For Ģ11 there is a lot going on. You would think a game that tells you what is going to happen in the next round would be boring/easy but it is not.

    Its definitely light.
    No MP.

    It can theoretically run in the background, but good luck doing anything else after its installed...

    Got half the squads now, the playstyles are different and nuanced. Good stuff. Swapped down to Easy so I can unlock more shit.

    Very tempted to go easy but donīt want to spoil the fun.

    Blitzkrieg works pretty well.
    Had a flying upgrade for the hook-tank so I could pull the enemies into water easily. Smokelauncher secondary, total gamesaver at times.

    Shield and laser squad seems to be horrible. Not enough push or damage to really make a difference.

    Yeah haven't figured them out yet.

    Really like the smoke squad.

    Did get a pilot that gives the mech flying, might have to try the flying hook bro method.

    Laser squad and the lightning ones are pretty nice A pilot giving a double action if the mech didn't move + lightning and building chain = everything just dies

    Got the last of the basic squads unlocked, but apparently there is still one squad to get, which requires having all of the achievements... that one might take a while.

    I found that a trio of that first Prime bot you start out with makes a pretty solid team, Medium difficulty was a breeze

    Yeah just form a custom squad right from the beginning - get some proper pilots and upgrades and you basically can just stroll through the game
