Recruits is a brutal fast paced top down shooter that puts the lives of countless amounts of soldiers in your command. Lead your men to victory and see them progress through the ranks, show them defeat and they will be lost forever.

Your role as a commander puts you in charge of managing a platoon of soldiers during the war. Take men into battle one squad at a time to accomplish your missions, along the way gaining experience and respect that allows you to better equip and customize your soldiers.

Early access review this little recruits made me a good impression on paper and in view of the first images. After some time of play, my impressions were confirmed and I thought that a co-op mode would be really nice to play... But... The game is unfortunately no longer updated for more than a year... Still an early access that never go out in final version. Anyway, did not buy or so take the but only if you find it at €1... It's not worth more in the current state of the game.

Early Access Review The Game "had" Potential However, the development was Discontinued Graphics and Effects: Are good Gameplay: The Game is very heavy and you come little pre-pitched helicopter missions are too buoyed To be able to play it well uptates: Last Upd A Year ago one of the developers also took a position on this and pointed out that something should soon be soon to be followed up again, only unfortunately this has been going on forever. Shortly around who buys it is short Fun but not permanent

Early Access Review This Game (an action shooter with a view from above) is very reminiscent of Cannon Fodder for Amiga but with superior and well detailed graphics, even for very small sprites and also with a very realistic physics game. Currently It is in early access and in campaign mode there are a limited number of levels that however will be expanded by a lot to the full release, but these make good the idea of what it holds in the future: missions in the jungle, on the snow, under the Rain, at night for stealth missions, with the use of various means such as tanks and helicopters. The weapons available are countless, you go from the rifle to the submachine gun, guns (with and without silencer), Minigun, flamethrower, RPG, C4, mine, Claymore, shotgun, grenades (frag, ignite and Flash), you can also call an air attack, etc... We will Have the opportunity to command a team of Max 4 components to give various commands and use them as respawn in case of premature death or to recover ammunition (you can also collect the weapons of enemies) addressing internships with missions to complete, But leaving us free to follow the path and strategy that you prefer. To This is added the mode Multyplayer... Despite some small bug due to the phase of realization in which it is (someone has already reported but will be eliminated) the judgement is more than positive!!!
