    Actually I pretty much like games with such kind of gameplays, or simply put, like those with innovative gameplays. You know Age of Wushu? A special sandbox game.

    The worst thing is the developer hasn’t been aware of it. If you take a look at Age of Wushu, you will see some new gameplay system.

    I hope this game is any good and i also hope there will be more turn based strategy games in the future but i dont think it will happen and that for only one reason.
    Our Kids today. They dont have patience at all. Try to imagine those ppl today and waiting for the other one to wait until he made his turn. I cant imagine. Ppl today want everything fast and as much effects and “bumbum” on the screen as possible. Its a sad thing because i really enjoy games like that. I also play Magic the gathering (cards and pc) what needs also patience. But we are a rare species today… :/

    Looks pretty awesome! I’m downloading this right now. I hope we start seeing more turn-based strategy games entering the market. Maybe even see a few in the esports seen in the next few years.

    played it a bit and it’s a pretty nice game the art style is wonderful and the turn-based game-play is well done

    Really interesting game but i play too many games to start a new one right now i will probably consider playing it in the future though

    As always really nicely done Spunk

    Looks interesting. Like the art style and turn mechanic.
    Tip for Spunkify. Way too many “sort of”s.
    Otherwise a very good presentation.

    Is this made in Flash?

    And that’s a good thing! I find myself to be hard to enjoy a turn-based game, even though I like the genre. I heard about this game before-hand and already played it a lot from yesterday to now. It’s really fun for a free-game and it will probably have improvements, well I hope. It can be kinda repetitive, also because of the scenario, being just a pvp game in the same place. Would be good to have some story mode against AI where u can play either alone or with other team co-op. Still the game is really fun for someone who likes turn-based games and the art and animation is really well made.

    did you notice that the turn-base games came back to market?
