Description

In the year 2535 the planet Omni declared independence from Earth. This decision was met by harsh repressions carried out by the Terran government. In response, Omni scientists managed to convert a device known as Power Loader (PLD) into combat mechas. Five years later, the 177th squadron was formed, consisting of an all-female team named DoLLS (Detachment of Limited Line Service).

Power Dolls is a turn-based strategy game in which the player takes role of a commander of an all-female military group manning giant mechanized battlesuits in a series of nine missions, with objectives ranging from destroying convoys to stalling enemy advance to rescuing captured military personnel.

Squads for each mission can be assembled from a total of twenty-one pilots, seven variants of mechanized battle armor (which can be armed with sixteen types of weaponry), four types of aircraft ranging from transport carriers to fighter-bombers and artillery units.

Several different battle plans can be chosen for most of the missions. The differences between these may range anywhere from a slight change of the deployment time up to and including a complete change of mission strategy.

Successfully completing a mission unlocks bonus piece of artwork depicting one of the women piloting the mechs ingame. There are nine of these graphics in total, one for each mission.
