Packed with action, Future Tactics is a turn-based tactical RPG that looks and feels like an action/platform game. Built around a highly complex turn-based battle engine, the adventure showcases a single-player Story Mode, as well as a two-player Battle Mode. The plot is set in the not too distant future, when Earth as we know it has succumbed to a race of extra-dimensional creatures. Now the final hope for restoring order to the planet rests on the shoulders of a young boy, his sister and a rag-tag assembly of unlikely warriors. Future Tactics: The Uprising features: 18 stylized and high-polygon characters interacting in rich, full 3D environments; Unique, number-free turn-based tactical combat system designed to keep players immersed in the action, not the stats; 19 action-packed, highly intense levels waiting to be conquered; Massively deformable terrain. Landscape can be permanently destroyed, leaving behind craters and canyons; Compelling storyline told through fully animated and voiced cut scenes; Two-player customizable battle mode lets gamers tweak handicaps, power-ups and victory conditions; Experience point system allows custom building of team members, allocating upgrades as players see fit; Boot Camp tutorial mode allows novice players to learn good tactics right away.
