Mission in Space : the lost colony is a turn based tactical game in which you control up to 6 troopers and deliver a colony from an alien threat.

There's 12 different missions with various objectives, 40 upgrades, 18 badges, 2 difficulty settings.

HOW TO UNLOCK THE HARD MODE : complete mission 12.

All the missions can be won in gold the first time without the premium skills. Check out the video walkthroughs in the help menu to see how it's done !

We hope you'll enjoy the game !

Great game but has an annoying bug

The game is very reminiscent of the old X-COM games (simplified considerably of course). The mechanics of combat are pretty solid and the animation was more than acceptable for this type of gaming. My only complaint about the mechanics is that you have no control over who the soldiers fire at when at alert. For example, one of my soldiers wasted all of his ammo on aliens well out of range allowing ones much closer to move in to strike because the game made them move last. Perhaps you could code in an ability for you to choose the maximum range to fire at.

Nasty "bug": When I reset my stats it lowered the max amount by 4 or 5 points! I couldn't re-buy the same abilities. Either it doesn't recount the badges which give you SP or you lowered the amount of SP gained when you updated (LVL 9 with only 7/7, I was getting +2 stat points per level).

For starters, you created a game system which I absolutely adore, and you almost got my full five from me. However, you then took it and made into a game specifically for you.

I'll start with what I did like. The ratios of MP and AP provided a very satisfying gameplay mechanic, but still limited you enough to make it a challenge. I liked how weapons were based on actual clip systems, you weren't controlling a buch of miniguns with infinite bullets. However, this also becomes a negative. I'll talk about that later. Another noteworthy component was the fact that each soldier got their own specific skill trees to level up in. This makes it so that you're not controlling a bunch of clones, each soldier had their own abilities that made them different. Again, this also makes for a point that is lacking. What I mainly loved was the fact that it was a turn based game. You can actually spend a few minutes deciding what you think the best course of action is. Real time strategy games should be saved for tower defense games. I liked the aliens, how they acted, and that little bit of variety makes you change up your gameplan at some points.

And now the part I'm sure you're dreading. At its core, this game is turn based strategy mixed with level based characterists. Normally, this would imply you have multiple ways to level up your team and there are different ways to tackle each mission. This is simply not the case here. You have designed you levels in such a way that there is only one way to complete the objective with points that actually get you rewards. At the moment, I am stuck on level 11. I have tried it multiple ways, splitting into two teams with different combinations, going in with different class set ups but they all failed. Having everyone stick together would probably work, but it would take a very long period of time, both in game and out. My main problem with the level is that you never have enough ammo. One group or the other would run out of ammo by the third or fourth switch and then I'd just get completely raped. And I hate the Leutenant. Because you need him to survive above all else and the fact that he's completely unaffected by Wood's shouts or Blake's nanomachines makes him to be more of an inconvenience, dead wieght to be carried around. I did eventually watch the walkthrough, and quite frankly I hate whoever played that run. They use a strategy that takes a coplmete left turn from what you learn earlier on in the game.

And the character skills themselves were unbalanced. Because he fires five shots instead of ten, Farro immediately becomes the most powerful character you have, and Sentinel just makes him all the more powerful. (Two reduction to MP when on alert state seems a little much) Farro didn't need the flamethrower. You should have given that to someone else and made his accuracy skills more worthwhile. Taylor seems fine to me, and Blake can help enough that he doesn't need more killing weapons. But Peirce and Woods are very subpar in battle. Wood's shouts don't offer as much help as you might think, and Pierce's bombs are extremely situational. And no, I don't plant the bomb down then immediately detinate so that I can get a single alian around the corner. These two are the most useless and really need something to beef em up in dealing with individual aliens.

And that is my rant. Unless I see some serious changes made, I don't think I'll want to be playing this anymore. Again, you could have had a really great game with lots of replayability, but you made it very one dimensional, and those of us who like different ways of dealing with situations have been put off.
