    Chroma Squad, while not perfect, is, undeniably, the best Super Sentai-based game around.

    The gameplay is a bit repetitive, but the strong story more than keeps you interested.

    Chroma Squad scratches both my nostalgia and strategy RPG itch in places that have long been left unscratched, and it’s a game I hope Behold Studios has plans to make more of.

    There is a hilarious tactical strategy RPG hiding beneath the pixel cover, which proudly confesses its Power Rangers heritage. It is a pity that it could not keep its pace during the whole time. [Issue#253]

    The whole thing is just so darn sweet and well-intentioned that its failings are less like roadblocks and more a nagging sense that this lovely, joyful thing should have been just a bit more consistently delightful than it is.

    With some narrative flaws and somewhat repetitive game play Chroma Squad is held up by its polish and shameless confident style.

    How did such an attractive subject turn out so boring? The tactical component is almost as basic as it gets and the studio management has the depth of a mobile game. [07/2015, p.62]

    I've bought it as a birthday present for a 12yo kid, ended up playing it more or less constantly for the last 2 days.
    Mechanics are simple to understand yet provide some nice depth, graphics are nice, monster variety is superb, but what surprised me the most was the plot. It's really well written, you actually can get attached to your squad and their misadventures, and most importantly - choices matter. With Pete playing next to me in just a couple of episodes we've ended up with completely different plot lines.
    Having the ability to call your mecha Buttlord is also a plus.

    I liked this Indie game a lot, i finished it and I hope for a sequel ..maybe with a little more content.
    Gameplay is like Final fantasy tactics or Ogre Battle or Vandal Hearts... but with less content and fewer options: a light tactical game. Compared to the games i mentioned earlier this has fewer tactical choices, fewer enemies, fewer classes, no exploration, very simple "Base Building" management , characters statistics aren't modifiable...and so on... but it's an indie game so it'is expected and this simplicity improve overall smoothness of gameplay. Positive aspect of gameplay are: No grinding, no random encounters, missions runs quite fast (short maps), enemies minion offer few variety but you will be facing lots of diverse really funny mini-boss perfectly in tone with
    a Sentai show. It has lots of pleasant to read text dialogues in line with a tv show, (avoidable if you prefer) and a very good and strategically tough final mission.
    There are some choices that the player has to make during progress that alter some of the missions you'll be facing, some part of the story and different ending...nothing too fancy but enough to made you wanna have another run once finished, just to try a different path.
    I'm not a fan of power-rangers but still I appreciate the humor in this game, the dedication to 90's and 80's tv references, the retro graphic, the ost, it's a good indie game.

    This game uses the "doge" meme multiple times. The dialogue makes repeated uses of smileys. Enemies sometimes exclaim "This is so OP" whenThis game uses the "doge" meme multiple times. The dialogue makes repeated uses of smileys. Enemies sometimes exclaim "This is so OP" when being hit.

    If this isn't enough to warrant never touching it, you'll be pleased to know that the gameplay consists of one of the most shallow SRPG systems ever created. The parts where the rangers fight in a mech are basically 10 minute long QTEs (with one type of QTE, (namely "stop the slider"), a crafting system that heavily depends on RNG (in a game where you can't replay levels, so if you don't get the component you need you're forced to give up or save scum) and plenty of bugs.

    Also did I mention it was released in 2015 and uses the "doge" meme multiple times?
