Summary

Cartoonish take on "soldier sequencer" games.

The Good

Cool visuals

The Bad

Soldier sequencers are boring, even if slightly spiced up by addition of spellcasting.

The Bottom Line

Take Rescue Raiders. Remove helicopters. What do you get? A "soldier sequencer" game, where proper sequencing/timing of your soldiers is key. While the visuals are side-scrolling 2D, without the copters gameplay effectively becomes 1D - just dots moving along the line. Now add vulnerable "workers" that have to leave the village (even if the mine is close to it), add a research tree - and you got it!
