Mini Review: Into the Breach



A turn based small-scale strategy game from the makers of FTL. I’ve been really enjoying this. You control 3 mechs on a series of 8x8 maps against the Vek (bugs) with various objectives on each map such as ‘block them from spawning’ & ‘protect the train’. There are a whole bunch of different mechs, pilots, weapons and configurations you can use to control the battlefield. It’s really refreshing to play something like this on a smaller scale where you have to work to the strength of your mechs, combine skills, and plan the next move to make the bugs attack themselves instead of you. Worth it!

Additional: Just a note in terms of difficulty; I found Normal too difficult, but easy was a walkover. Trying Normal again now after 15 hours of practice, but some team compositions are definitely easier than others.

Status: Complete (Finished on Easy in 3 hours, multiple play-throughs like FTL)
