WHAT IS THIS GAME ANYWAY?
If you are up for a casual yet spicy cocktail of action and strategy, but not planning to spend hours learning how to play, then Rover Wars might just be your thing.
You jump straight into the action with your little Rover to start building factories and hurting enemy units. The tactics in the game are in resource management and the placement of factories. Factories poop out minions that will find their way to the enemy facilities and destroy them. Once you destroy the enemy base, you win. simple.
DON'T JUST WATCH, JOIN!
Rover Wars has a neat local multiplayer system. It allows up to 8 users to join the game. To avoid couch conflicts we implemented some brilliant AI to battle cooperatively. There are always 2 teams and each side has a maximum of 4 Rovers. During battle, players can even switch teams or add some AI.
SO WHAT MODES ARE THERE?
Rover Wars has a campaign mode and a battle mode. The campaign mode will keep the average player busy for about 2 hours. Instead of providing a deep story, the campaign focuses on challenging you incrementally. You can play the campaign in co-op too.
Besides the campaign there is also the battle mode. This allows you to battle in one of the 17 instantly available maps and tweak many settings such as base strength and AI intelligence.
WILL THERE BE..
- Explosions? Yes, lots of them!
- Many maps? Yes, 17.
- Local multiplayer? Yes, up to 8 players can join.
- Different environments? Yes, there is a dusty Mars planet, a freezing ice world and a mossy place to fight in.
- Online play? Yes, We integrated Steam Remote Play. With a decent internet connection it works very well.
VALUE FOR MONEY?
An average match takes about 5 to 20 minutes depending on the amount of players and the AI level. The game has good replay value and is good fun to play with a bag of crisps and a few beers. If you would play the campaign with a friend the total man hours of fun would sum up to 4 hours. That means you paid about the same for a few drinks and the crisps as for the game... unless you live in Finland.
