Breach & Clear is a simultaneous turn-based tactical game first released for mobile phones and adapted for PC. Players create and customize their own special forces squad to complete various missions. The game is structured for quick play sessions with missions taking anywhere from five seconds to ten minutes. The gameplay is turn-based, but enemies and players take and execute their turns simultaneously, similar to Frozen Synapse. Completed missions are rewarded with stars based on performance. These are used to unlock subsequent missions. The characters also earn experience from battles, used to unlock new skills.
The game does not feature an overarching narrative, though each mission does have its own text based brief.
