Gratuitous Space Battles 2
Strategy 16 April 2015
A continuation to Gratuitous Space Battles developed by Positech Games. Along with its twin project – Gratuitous Tank Battles – the game presents a slightly different approach to the popular tower defense strategy game genre. Like in the first installment in the series, the players cannot directly influence the outcome of particular battles, and the key to success lies in proper planning and preparation. One can do this by constructing from scratch various units and manually selecting parts and elements of munitions. Then, one has to prepare battle formations and give orders to their commanders, sit back and observe how his protégés handle the battle by themselves. In comparison to the first installment in the series, the developers introduced several new gameplay mechanics – the most prominent being 3 new spaceship classes (battleships, heavy fighters, and destroyers). The available set of weapons and components has been significantly expanded. The game also introduces carrier ships and the necessity to replenish fuel reserves.
