Steam Link Spotlight - Fights in Tight Spaces

Posted by Campbell Bird on February 25th, 2021
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Steam Link Spotlight is a feature where we look at PC games that play exceptionally well using the Steam Link app. Our last entry was on Hades. Read about how it plays using Steam Link over here.

For this installment, I decided to go back to a more turn-based title. Fights in Tight Spaces just hit Steam in early access and is a turn-based card game where you manage the choreography of intense fighting set pieces that wouldn't feel out of place in films like John Wick or The Bourne Identity. You do this by playing cards that execute moves on your turn that allow you to manage your spacing while dishing out a ton of pain on multiple bad guys that accost you in tattoo parlors, narrow alleyways, and other cramped environments.

Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena: Your guide to monster vs. monster tips and tactics

Posted by Nicholas Tylwalk on January 29th, 2018

You've played turn-based tactics games on your phone or tablet before. I don't even need to know you to know that's true. But have you ever played with a squad full of famous monsters? Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena (which we're going to call simply Tactical Monsters from here on out) wagers that you have not, and that you'll have a good time doing it.

Going from just a single orc to a roster full of heavy hitters like Dracula, Medusa and more takes some doing, but getting there is more than half the fun in this case. Soak up all of our Tactical Monsters tips and tricks for a monstrous amount of knowledge on how to play the game better.

I really like rymdkapsel. Not just because I'm a sucker for games that are cleverly simple or highly stylisitc, but because it's fun and challenging. Actually it's extremely challenging, which is why I was excited to learn that it's getting a couple of new gameplay modes in the near future.
