Let me admit from the very beginning that I have a soft spot for petroglyphs games. Despite its shortcomings, I enjoyed Gray Goo enough to spend more than 100 hours in multiplayer mode, commenting on a series of competitive games about the questionable “highlight” of my time on YouTube. I am debating one of the most vocal and prolific supporters of End of Nations, a major focus of my writing for pass away now defunct gaming publication RTSGuru.com . I am debating one of the best posters in the alpha forums of this game. I think it’s OK to say that after about 6 or 7 years.

To say all this, it’s fair to take my impressions of Petroglyph games with a grain of salt: I come from a position where I want to love what they do and hope that their games will be successful with the players. I’m not particularly enthusiastic about debating 8-bit games (although I was starting to warm up with 8-bit invaders), but I thought it was right to start a discussion about the latest petroglyphs title with the two caveats, pass away I’m at least slightly pro-petroglyphs in general, and I didn’t manage to delve into the game.

A hail of bullets: pass away basic gameplay features of the forged battalion

If you have played 8-bit armies, you already know the basic game of Forged Battalion. Forged Battalion is an 8-bit army that was built in every way: harvest, construction, power and even technical progress (in the game) are largely identical between the two titles, which somewhat reinforces my completely unfounded belief that 8-bit games were developed, at least in part, in order to save Petroglyph financially. pass aways seems to have worked pretty well for the graphical upgrade to Forged Battalion, which is a nice game in itself.

For those who haven’t played 8-bit games yet, the pass away Command and Conquer formula (Red Alert 2) is probably the next reference, although there are clear differences between C&C and the forged battalion/8-bit model. which I will address in a moment.

In forged battalion games, pass away players start with their command center structure, pass away provides a construction radius, represents a resource delivery (in the case of a refinery) and builds all the structures. It has a C&C style global reach, but you can only build new buildings from other structures within a certain fixed radius. pass aways is similar to the way C&c has traditionally handled building.

Similar to classic Westwood games, you can build only one economic/production structure and one tower/defense structure at a time. So, you can build a tower while a power plant is being built, but you can’t build a barracks at the same time as a refinery. Single-thread production, baby! pass aways can make the correct construction sequence crucial, because 35 seconds or whatever is required for the construction of a power plant could prevent you from leaving air units or delay your next refinery. It takes a while to get used to, but for what it’s worth, I’ve always admired Westwood-style single-thread production.

pass away weakness, pass away I see in pass awaysem model of one building after another, is that, unlike newer C & C games, there is no way to add production queues: there is no crane structure that allows you to build 2 buildings at once, and for me it hurts a bit a residual complaint, pass away I have with 8-bit games, is also that pass away expansion on the map consists in crawling from one building to another to the outside., an often tedious and frustrating process that makes it difficult, To place refineries near resource deposits in the center of the map. There is no unit of the type ” Sputnik “or MCV, pass away can be placed outside its own construction radius in order to open a new construction area elsewhere on the map, which for me is a big problem of the” quality of life “.

However, I will note that the forged battalion has neutral and conquerable structures, providing their owner with a construction radius, which is a change for the better compared to “8-bit” games.

Back to the topic … There are 4 different types of units: infantry, light vehicles, heavy vehicles and aircraft. These are prefabricated by the player outside of combat (I’ll go into this “meta” level in the next section) and made from dedicated production structures. Unlike most other real-time strategies, additional production structures do not provide additional build queues. As with buildings, all unit production is single-threaded, based on the original structure: they build only one infantry at a time, or one aircraft at a time. However, each production structure you create increases the main factory’s creation speed by an X1 multiplier. So, with 2 barracks, you can produce infantry with a multiplier for pass away construction speed of X2, and with 3 barracks, you can produce them x3 as quickly as possible (apparently, x3 is the maximum bonus you can get). However, they always do only one at a time. This is an interesting model, but you have to get used to it.
