Apr 23, 2016Templar Battleforce is a really excellent example of the tactical RPG. It is not for everyone, as it is unforgiving and sometimes unintuitive, but it delivers what was promised; an engrossing struggle to purge the aliens, with a large amount of mechanical variety.

Character building 10/10
Tecnological development as a strategic mechanic 11/10
Tactical gameplay 12/10
Templar Battleforce delivers what I always wanted when playing a Games Workshop sci-fi computer game. No fantasy elements or board-game mechanics. Instead it fully utilize what the computer can afford a tactical squad-game. Superb tactical mechanics, fantastic technology tree and brilliant character building! Raiding derelict space-ships while outmanouvering xenos is finally as fun as you thought it would be.
I recoment turning off the in-game "music" and put Atrium Carceri or Lustmord on Spotify in the background.
Enjoy!… Full Review »

The devs are very active and will happily take on board feedback. The simplistic graphics should not put you off as it is a nice art style and the gameplay more than makes up for it.… Full Review »

This game is a turn based strategy game with rpg elements done right.
The art style in quite poor and getting involved requires a little of time cause its needed the willing to read a bit the perks and understand how the various units works together, but honestly the game is very solid and deserve a try from anyone who likes the turn based genre.
this game reminds me mostly to Space Crusade on Amiga (1992), Laser squad and Incubation (incubation is still a bit better overall), over other titles, as mechanics and setting.
The setting is inspired by the Warhammer 40k universe, those units are basically space marines with very similar gear and also very similar squad logic.
There are a good number of different units with their traits and perks to level up, some of them are to unlock during the campaign.
Those units have unique abilities and in most levels you are free to choose your starting team according to your playstyle and also according to the needs of the mission (ofc some units may be most interesting to use in some specific situations).
During missions usually its possiible after capturing some special buildings, to call in the mission more units, choosing from your team pool
Those units are called in spedning points earned by killings aliens, which usually requires a bit of planning to choose the right units you really need and also decide how many points you want to invest cause there is to wait some times to recuit many units with this system.
im playing the game as normal difficulty and i find it quite balanced, mostly ending missions with bonuses and without any casualty, anyway the sense of satisfaction in here so its quite balanced to my taste.
Incubation is a bit harder (the expansion a lot harder) and also a bit more involving and rewarding in my opinion, it requires more thinking and more chess-style playing then this one.
Anyway Actually i guess i did like 15 missionso or such, and i can surely tell that this game is a lot better then many others turn based strategy games i played in the last years.
I played recently some other games maybe more cool with the art style and story, and maybe a bit overhyped, but defo very cheap as strategy involved and without the right complexity i want in those games to be really interesting.
this one instead has what it takes to be very well done where it counts, as turn based strategy game is really nice.
Still a bit more contemporary art style and effects could be welecome, even if ofc its less important then the gameplay itself.
I hope in a future release.… Full Review »
