RESEARCH and DESTROY was born to realize the dream of co-oping tactical Turn Based Action with friends, and you’ll be paired with another set of Garys, Larrys and Maries (or however they’ve named their Scientists). Play with friends together on a couch (or on the floor if you prefer) using local splitscreen.
Co-op multiplayer allows some secret interactions that are easier to pull off with two players and enemies are brawnier to balance your superior brainpower. Of course, your tactics mean nothing if you can’t coordinate a plan of attack! You can use your […]
RESEARCH and DESTROY is set in a continent that resembles Europe and Northern Africa, or rather, what’s left of it in the Supernatural Post-Apocalypse. The classic home of Vampires, Trolls, Werewolves and such, they’ve reclaimed their birthplace after ridding it of pesky humans. Some might consider your missions to be home invasions, but we think of them as scientific field trips.
The RADvan chauffeurs you around twelve territories, and each territory has up to three missions in different areas. For example, on the Foggy Isles you may be tasked with gathering data from a […]
What’s the point of building all of those lovely, shiny, productive Universities in conquered newly-liberated territories if you meekly retreat at the first sight of an invading Supernatural? Sometimes the best form of offense is a good defense–Universities are the backbone of your efforts to reclaim earth and sometimes they need defending.
University defense missions play out just as you’d expect. One moment you’re kicking back, sipping margaritas and reading back issues of “Superconductor Monthly,” and the next minute there’s waves upon waves of Supernatural hordes trying to overwhelm the campus.
There’s an adage in the post-apocalyptic Scientific community that goes a little something like this: “It’s always better on the second try”. Propelling humankind out of darkness requires that kind of never-give-up-and-constantly-redo attitude. This gives rise to the ability to upgrade gadgets, weapons, universities and their defenses.
Before you can do any upgrading you need to do the researching. Not just the “open a book and read for days” kind of research; you also need the “fill a Supernatural full of scientific lead and stuff its corpse in the Van for study” kind of research too.
What’s better for destroying the Supernatural menace than a Superscience weapon? How about a Superscience weapon paired WITH a Supercience gadget!
Gadgets are the icing on the cake. The peaches in your cream. The bosons for your anti-bosons. In this case the cake and cream are actually Science weapons and anti-bosons are… well, they’re still anti-bosons.
While gadgets are not considered “offensive” during tactical sorties, they do tend to complement and improve your destructive capabilities. Take the Gravity Distorter for example. It’s your typical pocket-sized, grenade-deployable black hole. “Sure, that’s fine for crowd control,” I […]
