Wargroove is a high fantasy game that was strongly inspired by such turn-based tactics games as Advance Wars and Fire Emblem. It features minimalist pixelated visual style and a 2D top-down view. The game is made for Nintendo Switch and aims to recreate the retro atmosphere of the old games from the early 2000s handheld consoles.


The player assumes the role of one of the commanders. There are twelve unique commanders, each of them has a distinct personality, motivation, and a personal set of missions. The player navigates his or her commander on the map and fights the enemies. New commanders can be unlocked as the player progresses in the game. The commanders belong to four different factions: Cherrystone Kingdom, Felheim Legion, Heavensong Empire and Floran Tribes (the latter also featured in Starbound).


Wargroove includes a variety of modes, such as single player, cooperative multiplayer and player versus player, in both online and local modes. The multiplayer modes allow up to four players to participate in a game. The game allows the players to customize the rules and other options in this mode.

The game also includes a map editor that lets the players make their own campaigns. The editor features the option to interlink the various missions to create your own non-linear campaigns.

Unfortunately not recommended at This time. Flight Units are too overpowered, as you can use them to decide an entire Round in a few Moves. All Factions are equal to this, as most Units are only Resikins and have equal Values. The Skills of the Commanders are also all quite similar and unspectacular. I would advise all Interested Parties to wait for Updates before buying.
If you wanted an heir to advance wars then look no more you found it! Wargroove is a real gem that Chucklefish has laid on us. The same system as in AW is picked up with graphics straight from Starbound! The music is excellent without making too many noises and the gameplay will ask you to appeal to your tactical mind and know how to predict the movements of the enemy. The multi-player is at the RDV but the must remains the level and campaign Editor. Enough to create dangerous skirmishes to the most complete campaigns. You can buy your eyes closed because this game is worth its original price. I recommend it.
If one has always dreamed of seeing an advance wars in a fantasy world, Wargroove is a bit of this game desired. Taking advantage of the advance wars gameplay by adding some novelties, we can enjoy a scripted campaign as well as some other modes to play solo and also the possibility to confront other players in multiplayer! The graphics will delight the nostalgic Game Boy advance with beautiful animations. The cards are small, but the battles are very tactical! The game is very easy to take in hand, but the challenge is at the rendezvous. In short, a turn-by-turn strategy game is just excellent! It would be good once to add factions with really different units of the other factions. Very good local with friends on the same computer.
Giving Me tuts Suitably Suffering down, I have fefed towards the Release. The Game just doesn't come along though. For me, the Graphic Artist has done the best Job here. It's kind of just missing something for me. It is not even that it is too difficult, I found Cuphead brilliant and spent hours looking for it Weil was also difficult and even losing Was somehow fun. If I compare to similar Games like Fire Emblem, Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced or even Freeware like Battle for Wesnoth, then For me Wargroove is just a hassle-washed Ancient Empires 2 (Handy Game from 2005) for the PC. As I said, there is something else missing. Exp, the units Levels, the Opportunity to talk to NPC's in houses and learn something about the Story OR to find on the Map NPC's to talk about, who join Me, give items or whatever there are so many Possibilities. Maybe something will come in a future Update or DLC.
Отличная игра, в которой жив дух Fire Emblem и Advance Wars.  Весьма сложная, на нормальном уровне сложности некоторые миссии я не с первого раза прошел, хотя в стратегии играю не первый день.
