As one of the more intriguing games on the turn-based tactics market today, Fights In Tight Spaces provides an interesting step forward. Combining together a combination of turn-based tactical fighting with deck-building, fans of games like Slay The Spire might find themselves perfectly at home in this engaging, intriguing turn-based bonanza. But how well does its intriguing ideas translate into an actually exciting gaming experience?
Movie Action, Simple Thrills
The first thing to note about FITS is that it allows for some classic action-movie styling settings to take place. The game itself has garnered a fair amount of positive reviews online, and it comes from how well the action plays out. Though it can be tough to get into the flow of the game and make the most of its quirky and intriguing design styling, few would disagree that FITS is anything other than exciting.
It’s a high intensity game that requires you to utilise balancing your hands, your momentum, and your position from turn to turn. This allows you to more readily make decisions based on your next turn as opposed to simply making actions that don’t really go against one another.
Can you handle the pace?
While some might find it to be quite fiddly and annoying in that regard, few could disagree that FITS does a fine job of representing your actions. Each turn, and thus each deck, has a unique way of playing out and it can create some very intriguing, exciting scenes. The smooth, slick animation does a fine job of playing the fights out in impressive detail, helping you to really see how much effort has gone into the creation of such a high octane fighting game experience.
Generally, you would do well to find a fighting game that can live up to the same level of artistic flow and invention in the turns you get here. What would probably stop this from an even higher recommendation is the fact the card battling side of things definitely needs a jolt in a different direction in terms of how your card management works.
It feels a touch finnicky at the moment, and can lead to some pretty frustrating end results.
Overall, though, the game looks good, feels great, and is a fine addition to the games developed by Ground Shooter. While games like Slay the Spire definitely go further when it comes to the card deck building and the general quality from turn to turn, the animations alone in FITS make it a tremendous little game to try out. Will it be for everyone? Absolutely not. But if you enjoy turn based combat and/or deck-building games paired with some pretty stellar animation and an intriguing twist, this is definitely one to try out.
- Quality gameplay, with enough variety to make fights feel fun for a while yet
- Outstanding design with interesting, fluid animation that is very easy to watch
- Definitely needs some work in making the deck building a bit more intuitive
