Mighty Tactical Shooter is a Turn-based Shoot ’em up: Puzzle Hell

by Lambert Varias

Like first-person shooters, shoot ’em ups almost always require fast reflexes and memorizing the location and timing of enemies. So when I read that Mighty Tactical Shooter is a turn-based shmup, I was immediately intrigued. The closest I had come to experiencing this extreme mash up was with an F1 board game, and I didn’t have a good experience with it. But developer Sock Thuggery seems to have combined the best of both genres.

A turn in Mighty Tactical Shooter usually involves moving your ship and aiming your weapons. A guide shows the trajectories of enemies on screen to help you plan your move. This makes the game more of a puzzle with multiple solutions. To make things more interesting, the game gives you gravity-altering weapons, which bend not only your projectiles but the ones from enemies as well. This awesome mechanic not only gives you an alternative means of dodging enemy fire, it can also be an offensive tactic because you can make your enemies shoot each other.

Your ship also has three A.I., one each for your weapons, shield and repair systems. They work a bit like the systems in FTL: Faster Than Light. Boosting your weapons means you’ll have a weak shield, and so on. Finally, the game has a simple inventory and crafting system, giving you even more options.

Mighty Tactical Shooter will be released for Windows, OS X and Linux. Pledge at least £8 (approx. $14 (USD)) on Kickstarter to receive a copy of the game as a reward.
