Quar: Battle for Gate 18 is a VR turn-based strategy game based on the fantasy miniatures games This Quar's War and Songs of Our Ancestors. Set in a world of alien creatures that resembles the First World War, this game puts you in command of an ever-growing military force in a series of missions.
War on the virtual tabletop
If you've played other turn-based strategy games, Quar: Battle for gate 18 presents very simple mechanics. Each battle consists of alternate activation turns: you pick a unit and give it an order, then your opponent does the same. Play continues until all units have been activated. The turn then starts over. As the game advances, you'll gain access to new troop types and abilities. This is a short game, with only a few missions in the main campaign, but it demonstrates a simple mechanic that brings the experience of playing a tabletop miniatures game to virtual reality. The graphics are simple but evoke the strange creatures of artists like Brian Froud.
A treat for strategy gamers
Quar: Battle for Gate 18 is a simple but compelling game, and a must for VR strategy gamers despite its short length.
