Jagged Alliance: Flashback is both a remake and rebirth of the original genre. This upcoming game is going to bring back the classic gameplay of the classic games. All of this comes with updated graphics. But they need your help to make their Kickstarter successful.
The Jagged Alliance: Flashback Story
This game focuses around a mid-1980’s Caribbean Island called San Christobal. A fanatic U.S.S.R. General has seized power in the area and threatens to destabilize the region. The player has to send in his team in order to drive them out and stabilize the region.
Playing Jagged Alliance: Flashback
The game is supposed to play in a very similar manner to the original. This means a few things such as choosing a team from a variety of mercenaries who fight it out in the classic turn-based setting. For many players this is a breath of fresh air. While the new game had some popularity a great many people wished it had been more like this. Finally the multitude of classic fans will get a game they want. There are also a few key features we like:
- Base management that lets you build a custom base
- Tactical screens that play like traditions 2D turn-based games
- Mercenaries that grow as you play
- A variety of skills to customize each mercenary
This look like it is going to be the game that everyone wanted. We will be quite excited to cover it further.
