Control Command Escape Reviews Ironclad Tactics
11:59 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of Ironclad Tactics from Zachtronics. The game is a fast-paced, card-based tactics game featuring steam-powered robots in the American Civil War.

Picture the scene: it’s the American Civil War, with both sides producing an inexhaustible supply of units to destroy each other. The battles are a little different from how history books depict them though, as each side deploys a number of so-called “Ironclads”, huge steam-powered mechanised war-machines, equipped with everything from rifles to bugles and… cats.

Your task is to field these units (along with infantry), who then march steadily down a set of Plants-vs-Zombies style lanes towards an opponent who does the same. Units that make it through to the other side score a number of victory points; score enough of these and you’ll win the game. It’s in how the units differ that you’ll find the strategy; some units move faster than others, some have longer ranges, and Ironclads can equip assorted items to increase their abilities and can crush infantry by walking over them. It’s a game about planning, and then abandoning the plan based on what your opponent does.
