Description of Tactical Troops: Anthracite Shift
2120. The Sedvan Spheres, advanced teleportation devices, suddenly reactivate after years of silence. It returns access to Anthracite, a beautiful yet hostile planet light-years away from Earth. Anthracite hides an invaluable treasure: Galvaon, a rare, natural mineral that can fuel the Sedvan Spheres. The one who wins the battle for Anthracite, conquers it all.
Tactical Troops – Anthracite Shift is a top-down turn-based tactical science-fiction game in which the player leads a small troop of elite soldiers throughout the hand-drawn, beautiful yet hostile planet of Anthracite.
Explore the beauty and the danger of Anthracite by leading your troops through 40 missions of a story-rich single-player campaign. Study the briefing, choose your equipment and outsmart your enemies.
Compete with your friends or against the AI in the multiplayer skirmishes, either online or from the same device through the Hotseat mode.
Every single movement takes place in a grid-less tactical environment. Plan your strategy and move your troops with freedom: attack on an open field or from a hidden corner. Take cover behind rocks and trees or ambush the enemy from inside buildings and bunkers.
Not only you can teleport your units, but also your bullets and grenades. Plan ambushes from the other side of the map or use the Sedvan Spheres to disperse incoming fire.
Thanks to your troops’ overwatch technique, you can automatically attack your enemies as soon as they enter your field of view. Choose the weapon, set the direction and your soldiers will patiently wait for the unlucky opponents who try to get in their way.
PHYSICS BASED, ALIVE SCIENCE-FICTION WORLD
The combat system and the world of Anthracite follow the rules of physics: weapons require manual aiming, bullets and grenades can bounce off obstacles. Your troop can push objects and use them to their advantage.
