Boid is real-time strategy at its most primal. No funds to manage or infrastructures to build. It’s a kill or be killed battle of rapid decisions to dominate the gene pool. Kepler 42-C. A faraway planet of little significance. At least, it was until a malfunctioning drone crashed into its ocean, forever altering the course of life and inciting a battle to claim the planet, one microorganism at a time. Claim vital positions to replicate and mutate into seven specialized units, such as the fast and vulnerable Scout, the explosive Kamikaze, and the life-draining Leach. Press your enemies for weaknesses, outflank their ambushes, usurp their bases, and amass an unstoppable swarm to overpower your adversaries. This is more than a battle for your survival. It’s a fight for all life to come. Fight to claim the planet in an 10-hour, single-player campaign Available as DLC, the single-player campaign takes you on a journey to claim the planet and teaches you everything you need to succeed in multiplayer. Only the single player campaign is paid in BOID - everything else is free. Create the perfect skirmish with bots and four difficulty levels. Bots allow for easy practice in multiplayer matches. Go online with ranked, unranked, and private 1v1 matches. Featuring a full-on league system The more you play, the more your list of Friends & Rivals grows. BOID keeps track of your opponents for easy challenging Create custom maps to share, and subscribe to your favorite creators. A fully functional level editor allows you to create your own multiplayer maps Color blind mode for heightened game accessibility. Super easy to pick up gameplay, no base building to worry about - it's all about mutation and classes Rock paper scissors style class system. Do you go for the heavy/strong/slow units or for the fast/weak/rush ones? Twitch Integration for multiplayer matches

Boid reviews and comments

Translated by

I recommend it but with quotes, because it is a free game, because it has only a few hours of content, does not have many maps and the mechanics are not very deep jugablemente. Also has problems with the saved, and is only in English.

Very good game, beautiful, interresant, a good atmosphere, one could think that the absence of translations is embarrassing but its pass cream = D. Those potentially nice additions that could be made possibility of more player in the same game (2v2, 3v3...) Good game

Interesting For half an Hour at most. If you are looking at simple Games with Strategy stands the right one for in between, otherwise nothing for most "Gamers." With me, after a short Season, the Game is untouched on the Pc and in the Steam Library for over a Year.

Early Access Review Boid is a spatially designed RTS, and this time the so-resorted planetary design leaves indifferent due to its excessive simplicity. If to this we add a crazy gameplay and little sense of control because the result is obvious, a product with good intentions but mediocre in a totality. Cost: 0.31 EUR.

Early Access Review Eufloria Game Only PvP/Bots. Not quite intuitive Control (If you set a rallying Point, set the Velvet point again from the target, the original Rallying point is set and you can't form chains like that and I haven't figured out how to undo the Whole thing.) Since I'm not a PvPler, I didn't put any Energy in either.

A real garbage infects. One of the worst games I've ever played in my life. You've stressed Me more than my exams of Ordinary Differential Equations. I Don't know what hell I got out of the game, but I'd rather have bought mousetraps and Habérme caught my armpits with them. There is No living being able to spend a more unfair campaign, where you receive a thousand attacks at once from Celulitas while the damn whale who does not know his safety goes crazy. I Haven't seen a single gameplay across Youtube to more than 45% of this infecting game! If you have some decency, run away from this game, so you want...

Boid is a demanding Real-time Strategy game for short and exciting Laps. A Game rarely lasts more than ten Minutes and is highly exciting from the first to the last Second. Each Player starts with the same Conditions and you decide on victory and Defeat solely with your own Abilities. Due to the good Integration in Steam, Games are quickly found and Maps can be shared with just a few Clicks. I can fully recommend Boid to any Friend Of Strategy Games.
