We’re seeing a lot of turn-based strategy games recently, including the mighty XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Frozen Synapse and RAD Soldiers. Breach & Clear is the new boy in town which manages to makes its mark among these legends. Lets see how.

Choose to be a part of the US or Canadian Army and execute advanced missions for your country. Assemble your team to Breach the hot area & clear off the terrorists.

You have four squad members who can be deployed at different doors. Plan your moves step by step using the revolutionary and easy-to-use controls. Just tap a tile where he has to move and allot directions at each step. Once the plan of actions are ready for all, tap breach to spectate awesome life-like battles. Continue this until all the rooms are clear.

Once an area is done, more maps are opened over the globe. However, many of them just have a ‘coming soon’ board. As usual, the soldiers gain xp and level up after each round. You can buy more armour, helmets, weapons etc from the store, too.

The gameplay feels great especially with quick controls, directional movements and coordinated attacks. Breach & Clear sports a bird’s eye view camera and the graphics are just average, but more than enough for the exciting gameplay. Sound effects deserve special mention too, thanks to the adrenaline it builds.

In short, Breach & Clear is not as majestic or breath-taking as some other games in its genre, but for 2 bucks, this is the best one could ask for.

Learning Curve:Medium

Who Is It For:Strategy lovers
