Welcome to Taktyka!

Taktyka is a turn-based tactical game inspired by Jagged Alliance. Taktyka is an entry for Gynvael's Winter GameDev Challenge 2017 (reddit).

Two teams of six units fight to the death on a 24x24 board.

You play as the blue team.

You must protect your General! When your General dies, you lose.

How to play

Each turn you must strategically spend action points. Use action points to move or attack.

Each unit has a maximum of 4 action points. At the beginning of each turn, all 4 action points will be replenished. Any remaining action points are lost at the end of a turn. Use it or lose it!

Click on a unit to select.

When a unit is selected, click on a yellow tile to move to that tile. Moving costs one action point per tile. Each individual move is restricted to the four cardinal directions (north, east, south, west).

Use the early turns to find cover. It is only a matter of time before you will encounter the enemy.

When a unit is selected, click on an enemy highlighted in green to attack that enemy. Attack costs vary by weapon:

User Interface
