I like the idea, and I wanted to like this game, but it's just so frustrating. For all the reasons that people have stated below, my troops were too good. So, when my miners started inexplicably attacking every single soldier I put out, I ended having to wait until every single mining mission was done before I could send out anyone new. They'd just die steps from the base. Ergh
I give 3 for "effort." I don't men to be so harsh, as this is a good idea, if maybe not very polished. I have several complaints about my game play experience...
1. My soldiers, on return trips, will sometimes suddenly attack their own if I send them at that time. This doesn't always happen, but in the instance of the level where it is the first time facing two enemies, I had seven troops after they had none. I had three by the time I had taken out their many bases.
2. There is no directions on how to do so, but I can't seem to get anything better then the basic rifle. I have upgraded my bases to no avail. It changes nothing.
3. The enemy should get their own versions of these "upgrades" as you play along. I went with range, mining, and damage upgrades. The only time a troop died was when his comrades shot him (see above).
4. The upgrades seem to go too fast. While I realize they aren't big upgrades incrementally (for instance, the range only helps a few centimeters on the screen, but the map just isn't that large after the third upgrade) they just are too powerful.
Don't get too upset, as I think that you have a good thing going here, but I would have liked some "terrain" features, as well as a larger map. For a simple, yet intriguing game, you did okay. I would love to see you continue your work, as I think you have a good creative mind.
Simple, fun, quick. Too easy if you buy the drops
All I can is its a funny game to play
The game's presentation is a little simple. I think you should create a menu interface to easily access all bases and see what they are doing.
It's not a bad game, so I recommend.
