While visiting the Wahoo Studios/NinjaBee offices I got an extensive look at Band of Bugs. The ultimate result: I am hooked. Band of Bugs, at its core, is a turn-based tactics game, but do not let that scare you away. If you are intimidated by all the numbers, calculations, and long deliberations of turn-based games, fear not. You can easily play this game (and be quite successful) without running numbers in your head. And to eliminate the painfully long turn cycles in most turn-based multiplayer games, NinjaBee has concocted an innovative and fast-paced turn structure that will force you to trade slow and deliberate for quick and decisive.
I will be posting each section of this hands-on over the coming week or so. Stay tuned for targeted coverage of Story, Gameplay, Graphics (including some brand-spankin’ new screenshots!), Sound, Multiplayer, the Level Editor, and Live Integration.
