Formata is an RTS action indie game that lets you take control of any of your units on the battlefield. You are also able to upgrade your troops. You have infantry to fight in melee and to attack the castle door, archers for ranged combat and for castle defense, builders to repair wall and throw rocks, and standard bearers to buff your troops. There are around 6 different maps in Formata, each one of them pretty difficult. Some maps have you play as Egyptians or the Greeks, and yes you can play as the 300 in the Battle of Thermopylae. On the maps, you must capture and defend certain capture points. These capture points provide you resources to hire new troops and for your upgrades.
So is Formata like Mount & Blade Warband? Formata is a bit similar to Mount & Blade in the way that you are able to take control of a soldier on a massive battlefield. I've always been attracted to games like Mount & Blade that lets me take control of a troop in a large army. I personally prefer the controls in Mount & Blade over Formata. As for my first impression or review of Formata, I find that Formata's controls to be a bit slow and unresponsive. Also, I've ran into a couple of problems with the AI in Formata, this makes combat a bit difficult. I do like where Formata is going and my concerns don't really mean that Formata is a bad game. I do find that Formata can be fun to play. Please keep in mind though that Formata is still in development so a lot of this could change. If you were wondering, Formata does not have directional attacks like Mount & Blade Warband.
Thank you for watching this Formata gameplay video! You guys know what to do if you like the video! :D
Lead. Fight. Win.
Gain resources, build your own army to lead it into a battle!
Create your own strategy, survive in difficult conditions and then break through enemy's close formation to ruin their castles and reach the sole leadership on the map.
Do not forget about tactics when the fight is on! Good location and right formation will bring you an important victory, which immediately translates into an advantage for the whole war.
Catch your enemies by surprise, until they take a position and build a shield wall, provoke them to mess up the ranks, surround them and destroy completely! Catch up with those who run away and kill them all, because if you do not, they will return back with a sword in a hand!
Alternatively you can use your archers as your main power. While your strong infantry hold back the onslaught in a narrow passageway, a hail of arrows will turn the enemy hordes into heaps of corpses.
Duco. Pugno. Vinco.
