Grid Force: Mask of the Goddess blends real-time shoot ‘em up gameplay and tactical grid-based combat as you form a team of powerful Goddesses and stop the world from collapsing.
At first glance Grid Force: Mask of the Goddess looks a lot like a tactical turn based strategy game, but really it’s a fast paced real-time shoot ‘em up that plays out on grid-based battlefields. It features single-player, co-op and PvP gameplay and sees you fighting your way through grid-based arenas and assembling a team of 9 Goddesses from a roster of over 40.
The grid-based arenas are split in two, with you controlling the characters on the left side and attempting to defeat the enemies and bosses on the right side. The combat is very fast paced, with you attempting to dodge attacks and unleash your own. It’s also pretty tactical, with you able to switch between characters on-the-fly and use their skills to exploit your enemies’ weaknesses.
As you progress you’ll recruit Goddesses (either by beating them in combat or via other methods) and you’ll also be able to evolve the power of the Goddesses’ Masks to unleash devastating attacks on the battlefield. It also features a branching narrative, with your decisions having a real effect on how the story plays out and the ending you get.
It’s a great looking game that promises a very unique blend of fast paced action and strategy. Sign up for the Beta to unleash your inner Goddess!
