Established in a military outpost, you and some other operatives are called to battle when it is under siege. Hostile forces are moving in fast, but your commanding officers have faith in you. You and the others are highly skilled soldiers. Will you hold them off?
There are numerous gameplay systems that are important to remember if you have any hope of holding off enemy forces. They are listed here for your viewing.
Player health: All players receive 100 health at the beginning of the game. As hostile forces attack players, their health will begin to degrade. Should their health fall to 0, players will be rendered WIA (Wounded In Action).
WIA: WIA players can attack, but their efforts are much weaker. They will have a certain amount of time to be rescued by other players before dying.
Death: Should the other players fail to revive a dying player, they will become KIA. While dead, you cannot perform any actions until the next wave. After a wave, KIA players will be automatically resurrected with 50% of their maximum health.
Store: When unlocked, the store will allow players to purchase support items. The store has a limited amount of space for items, and items will cost money. Money is obtained after each wave and by fulfilling special requirements. A money bonus is also earned at the end of each chapter based on your rank.
Tactic research: Researching tactics adds items to the store if accepted. If the store is out of space, research will automatically be rejected.
Tactician manuals: Finding enough tactician manuals will add a special item to the store. These items cannot be removed, and are more powerful that standard research.
Waves, chapters, and ranks: A wave consists of a series of enemies that must be defeated. Clearing out all enemies will complete a wave, and cause the game to advance to the next. Completing all waves in a chapter will complete said chapter. Chapters advance the story. At the end of each chapter, a rank will be given based on multiple factors, including number of WIAs, KIAs, and achievements completed, among others.
A few rules:
No OP attacks
You cannot attack while KIA
Tactic research does not need to be modern.
