LostStar Tactics 

 

It is really neat to see small developers grow, and improve. Take James Pawliuk for example. Staunch Defense was a hideous looking game that was extremely solid. So the next game we are playing of his is LostStar Tactics. This is a turn based strategy game that sets out to take the genre crown from Shining Force.

I will let you decide if that crown is taken or not. I have my own opinions on the matter of course. The setting is space, and our characters have an array of skills. These skills are related to equip-able items and cards. Ya'll know me, I hate it when games use cards. Unless they are extras that we use to view. Otherwise I am not a fan of them.

The graphics in LostStar Tactics are drastically improved from previous games from this developer. That is the really good news, and it warms my heart. The bad news is it still has a ways to go to challenge the Shining Force franchise. There is one screen violence as the characters use a variety of weapons to injure and ultimately kill off characters on the opposing side.

The music in LostStar Tactics is very classy. I enjoy listening to it while trying to decide how to equip my team. The special effect sounds fit this game masterfully well. I enjoy listening to them while making my menu screen selections. There are enough levels in LostStar Tactics to warrant the price. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this review.

At first I thought LostStar Tactics was extremely difficult. See I blew through the first three levels and then hit the proverbial brick wall. I found I could replay previous levels to level up my team, and to earn additional items. These items gave me choices in how to take on future levels. LostStar Tactics will leave you to discover how to beat the levels yourself. There is a short explanation at the start of the game.

LostStar Tactics is a turn based strategy role playing game done in a sci-fi setting. We destroy all enemies put in front of us. Different characters have different skills. Some have certain strengths and certain weaknesses. The enemies fit into the same boat. Finding the best course of action will make LostStar Tactics easier.
