Description: Skylight is a turn-based tactics game of colossal space battles. Comes with VR (Vive/Rift) and non-VR versions! On the bridge of your flagship, a holographic projector shows your fleet floating in space, facing the enemy and awaiting your orders. Command nimble squadrons of fighters, specialized frigates, and giant capital ships as you orchestrate your forces toward victory.
The new Deluxe Edition includes new missions and ships, for a total of 15 unique ship types. Play through 36 Campaign missions, create your own in Skirmish mode, or play a Multiplayer match against your friends or a stranger. The multiplayer is turn-based, so you don’t need to be online at the same time as your opponent. You can input your fleet’s orders on your own time and come back to continue playing the match later!
Review: Skylight is a strategy game from the same makers as Tactera and indeed they are very much the same style of game and graphics. But that is not a bad thing as I quite liked Tactera anyway. But this game is a total fail. It seems to have been too grand for its own good and some of the most basic things that made Tactera a joy to play have been ignored or removed. It’s as if they made a strategy game without any need for strategy! Throw in the £11.39 asking price and you have a game that is best left alone until it gets some significant updates of which I don’t see happening any time soon.
