The War Room

by SnedHlepPls - Jam Entry

Command your troops in a Battleship-esque turn-based strategy game!

The War Room is a turn based strategy game akin to Battleship where you have to find and destroy the enemy units. However, units move around the board, so you have to rely on the scouts' reports to work out where they are!

Enter your moves via the text box on the left hand side of the screen. Units can move up to 2 spaces a turn. You will then get reports on enemy movements before your next turn. Win by defeating all of the enemy platoons.

At the time of publishing, I'm having issues trying to get a web version to build from Unity (WebGL). I'll try to get a web version published asap.

I love this take on battleship. I enjoyed the cooperation between the textual and visual elements of the game. The fact that someone on the outside is relaying information to you makes it even more interesting. What's strange is that when I moved one of my men to a spot that already had one of mine, it combines them. When one platoon was destroyed, both of them were. Other than that, was great!

Cool game design. I ended up winning, but using the pusher was a bit cumbersome. Also, when I played full screen resolution (1440 x900), the input box text was hidden. It was all guesswork when I was inputting commands. Some improvements and this could be very cool.

Definitely, a unique game idea, though I struggled to figure it all out.

Fun Fact: I tried to make a game about a war room initially, though mine ended up far too complicated, and I had to kill off that project.
