About

Impulse

A real-time strategy developed by independent developers from Arcen Games. The game first appeared on the public in 2009 on the developer's site and the Impulse site, and later appeared on Steam in version 2.0.

Interesting mix

The developers tried to combine in the game at once three genres: real-time strategy, tower defense, and 4X-strategy. Players and critics celebrated the unique gameplay but at the same time a fairly long process of learning the basics of the game. The main rivals of the players are two AI, the main goal - to destroy their planets. AI at the start has unfair advantages over the player, controlling the huge fleets of spacecraft. The game map usually consists of 10 to 120 star systems, its size greatly affects the game strategy necessary for victory.

Key features

The main feature of the game is the confrontation of players with artificial intelligence. According to the developers in AI War, this problem was solved: the local computer can think on three levels, adapt to the player's style of the opponent's game and surprise with illogical moves and attacks for the robot. DLC for the game, in addition to new units, maps and soundtrack, brought new types of artificial intelligence, victory over which becomes for players a kind of puzzle.

AI War: Fleet Command reviews and comments

Very demanding, at higher Levels of difficulty extremely difficult Fun, almost unlimited replaybility da dozens of AI Types, Subtypes and AI Refinements. Plus, a number Of DLCs and proper maintaining by the Developers. If you expect Graphics spreads and/or a simple Game, you'd better look elsewhere, but be ideal for strategy nerds:-)

Too cluttered. The actually good Tutorial Explains the mechanical Things (KEYBOARD Shortcuts (VIELE!), etc.) but not the playful ones (How to win a very simple Game. What matters?). But immediately at the 1st Game (Beginner Script) I didn't know what to do now? No Campaign or anything like that. English only. Very dry Food. For Reinfuchser certainly good, I had too much of a Good thing.

Just... Amazing! The epic adventure that has been promised to lead the survival of mankind in its battle against the machines is gripping. The AI is-as its title implies-the central concept of the game. Through skillful mechanisms, developers give the oppressive feeling of confronting an irresistible enemy AI, your short-term tactics determine your long-term survival. A huge replayability is guaranteed thanks to the many levels of settings before each game starts. Online mode is exciting, but it is essential to find a clever survival companion if you want to have a chance to succeed. The "fake" 2D graphics are convincing without being boring, and allow the game to remain fluid in all circumstances, with sometimes on the screen thousands of ships competing! I recommend to all fans of tactics and strategy.

AI war: fleet command is a niche game that is not addressed to the largest number but to specific players who like real-time spatial strategy games with a large part of 4X (eXploration, eXpansion, eXploitation and eXtermination) If you don't like not this style of play, do not insist, AI war: fleet command will not shut you change your mind. If you do not know this style of play and want to discover it, I would tend to discourage you from taking AI war: fleet command for discovery, but, why not? You will need patience, be thorough and, above all, obstinacy. There are so many things to say about AI war: fleet command, that it's not simple. Even the test bench I made (link below) only addresses a very small part of the game. There is enough to write a book to talk about this creation of Arcen games. Finally, this is in two three sentences a summary of the story. Many large Nations oppose in space. The threatening nation is that led by AI (artificial intelligences) and you must fight it and eliminate it. Recover solar system on solar system, exploit them, do research and develop your army... It is the strongest that will win. To read all my impressions on AI war: fleet command. [www.graal.fr]
