A polished choice script game about WWII in the pacific theatre, February 3, 2016
by MathBrushIn this game, you play the leader of a platoon of Marines during WWII. In the pacific theatre, you are commanded to attack the island of Espirtu Santu, and you must decide how to do so.
The game focuses on both strategy and tactics. What weapon do you pick? Do you ambush or charge in? When do you stop? When do you go?
I played through to one ending, trying to play conservatively to reduce losses.
I felt this was an effective Choicescript game. It seems to be well-researched.
Recommended for Choicescript fans and military history buffs.
