The gameplay blends traditional turn-based tactics with a bit of fighting game combat mechanics for a fresh take on the genre, placing player skill and tactical sense as key for Victory.

= NEW CONTENT & PURCHASES =
Our goal is to reward player engagement by allowing a large majority of content in X-Tactics to be accessed for FREE by simply playing the game! Accessing special missions, character upgrades, boosts, and items is done by buying them using the in-game Cash, earned primarily by defending your town through GPS missions. We also constantly add new Agent characters. Please note however that all Characters are fairly balanced against each other, X-Tactics is not pay 2 win. Each new agent brings new combat mechanics to the table, and comes with their own unique missions and storylines. To purchase new agents we now use the X-Coin system, which allows players to pay to directly unlock new Agents anytime, or to play until they accumulate enough X-Coins to unlock the Agents for free. Purchasing X-Coin will remove ads and help us keep adding new content for everyone on a weekly basis.

First this game is well done and looks great.

And that's the good part.

So I had an issue buying the starter pack, at the time it said 500k cash and 100orb things. It only gave me 250k and 30 orbs. So I tried to contact them and they only give you their website, FB and Twitter. I tried through they're website from my iPad my phone and a computer but it was broken and wouldn't allow contact. I did get someone to answer on Twitter and after 2-3 days they resolved it and gave me 100 more orbs. So I ended up down 250k but up 30 orbs.

So I've been playing for a few days after this and notice I'm not getting the cash currency. You need it to upgrade your agency, buy items and play special missions which are 10k+.

So I'm back on Twitter and they send me to the website apparently they don't have an explanation how to earn cash in the game. It lists off 5 ways to earn cash a few were buy it, complete missions, do gps missions... I'm like oh shit I've done all that. I have not earned a single dollar from missions. So they say we're going to have an update on Thursday. But really what it was was new missions not really an update and I find that out late Friday night. I sent a DM on Twitter when it's almost Saturday cause nothing showed up in the App Store. And that's why I didn't see it is because they just "updated" some missions. Now they're saying you get lots of cash from gps secret tape missions. So I play a normal mission no reward(just to see) then I play a gps mission taking a photo of the the gps screen, the team screen and the victory screen. NO CASH. Then I'm like I found a "secret" video and after that screen it asks me if I want to watch it for $500. I'm sorry but if special missions are 10k+ then 500$ is NOT a lot of cash especially when you have to watch a video to get it.

So without paying money or grinding out ads there is no way to upgrade your agency, buy items or play special missions.

This is a game for whales.

I think I'm mostly pissed about being lied to but I regret spending any money on this.

It won't let me add a pic from my phone or I would show a snap of the website.
