ARMA Tactics is a standalone spin-off of the ARMA mobile tactics series. While being set in the same universe as its predecessors, the game features a dramatically different type of gameplay.


The player takes control over a squad of four Special Forces operatives in the modern world. He or she can view them from the top-down "bird's eye" view in a 3D environment. The scope of a camera is very limited, however. Each character has special skills that can be improved when the character levels up using an RPG-like mechanic of experience points.


The combat and movements in ARMA Tactics are turn-based. Each unit has two action points. They can be spent on movement, healing, attacks, or preparations for an enemy attack. For example, the player can spend a point to order his or her soldier to fire upon seeing an enemy without waiting for his or her turn.

ARMA Tactics relies heavily on the "invisible dice." A lot of things in the game are randomized, and both the player's and enemy soldiers can miss their target from the point-blank distance if the game says so.


The game has two modes. In the story mode, the team completes a series of missions against Islamic terrorists in Africa. The plot is delivered through cutscenes between missions. The other mode offers the player to complete the randomly generated missions. There's no multiplayer mode.

Arma Tactics reviews and comments

Not to say, visually it's beautiful, almost crashed ... But it's unplayable on IPhone (4s). It does not matter programming problem or compatibility but just ergonomics ... We spend his time zooming, zooming in order to see a little better his soldier ... When to click on it to do some action remue of the wager ! As for the precise movements to advance under cover of a corner of wall for example is 2times on 3 wolf, exposing his soldier to the fire of the opponent. test on tablet but not on IPhone! Waste of almost 5, it's nervous!

This game could have been amazing but there is some few problems with it. First of there's some balance issues: the game can seam insanely hard, right until all your men are equipped with sniper riffles. Second thing is all that with the XP, you don't get the amount your told your rewarded and when you press reset you actually looses a lot of XP (which isn't explained). Worst thing is though I've paid for the game and the developers made a full campaign. I'm just not allowed to finish a level with a damn, when I split up my men and place them in the exfil points as ordered they disappear but absolutely nothing happens

For friends of the genre, this game is recommended! It reminds of the scenario of "Blackhawk down". It crashes on the iPad2 every now and then, but after a restart of the game (not the iPad), it continues exactly where it was used. The four-armed team has four firearms and various items to choose from. The AI ​​is a bit dull and the player has to repeat the missions endlessly to get money and experience points (no inapp purchases possible). Despite the deductions, the game makes me personally spa (lie sick in bed) and I have gambled for a few hours. I'm looking forward to updates - there is something else!

Bon jeu de tour par tour, assez dynamique, quelques imperfections, mais sans soucis. C'est assez fluide et beau sur un Ipad 3. Une petite mise jour pour corriger un bug de camra (pas gnant pour jouer, mais plus pour analyser les actions) serait la bienvenue. Good tactical game. It is beautiful. It is quite fluid on an iPad 3. I recommend this game to anyone who loves the turn. This is not Xcom, but worth the "Detour" Dear Programers! Please an Update! The camera doesn't always follow the action, especially after OUR TURN, when it is the ENEMY'S TURN, we often find ourselves looking at the scenery instead of following the action...>>>WHY??? Why is it not possible to go through the windows, or climb ladders? Thank you for this game, but PLEASE, quickly updated to make it even better...
