Great, but buggy, and that's what ruins it.
This game doesn't look bad at all, it isn't bad at all, except.. It's so buggy! There's no save feature? It's so buggy and there's no save feature? That's what ruins it. There are so many different kinds of bugs mentioned, but it only takes ONE of them to make all of us stop playing.
For me, it was when a big green thing killed my captain. However, the game said "click somewhere to RETREAT" even though my captain was dead and no one else was attacked. The game was stuck forever. It's not like we're going to start over a bunch of times just to play it, after all.
Aside from FIX THE BUGS, another suggestion would be an undo button, maybe, because sometimes I click and there are a lot of pieces in that spot and I can't see, so I do something I do not intend to do. I really hate how the pieces were set up, though, all the weak ones in front, I have to move them out of the way before they get killed, then try to edge my stronger pieces around them. I don't feel that it contributes to the "tactical challenge" or whatever you wish to call it.
