The Turn-Based strategy genre has been suffering these past few years. It seems not many developers are keen to spend their time crafting these wonderfully tactical games anymore. Which makes it all the more satisfying when a game like IVor On Folvos comes along and reminds us all just how much fun turnbased strategy gaming can be.
As its title subtly suggests, the game is set on the planet Folvos and tasks you with leading a band of rebels against an empire intent on stealing all of your planet's resources. Granted, the graphics are far from impressive, but what War On Folvos lacks 4 in the visual stakes, it more than makes up for with its highly strategic levels, crisp enemy Al and a rousing soundtrack.
A few minor issues such as a lack of an undo move option and a few clumsy text entries prevent it from scoring higher, but as far as indie turn-based strategy games go, War On Folvos is one of the best around, just falling short of the excellent Styrateg.
