The Game – How to Play

In every Blast Squad battle, two teams of three players enter the battle arena. The team that first takes out the opponent’s team will win the battle. There is no respawning in Blast Squad. Once player’s hero is eliminated, the player is out of the battle.

The Turn Phases: Decision and Action

The tactical gameplay of Blast Squad is driven the synchronous turns. Each turn is divided into two phases: The Decision and the Action phase. In the Decision phase, players have seconds to assign actions to their champion. After locking in, the Decision phase is followed by the Action phase, which plays out the assigned actions of each player in real-time.

The Hierarchy of Actions
There are four types of actions player can assign to their champion during the Decision phase.

1. Boosts
Heals, shields and different empowering boosts are the first ones to play out in the Action phase. You want your shield before you get blasted, right?

2. Charges
Escapes and charging attacks follow the Boosts. Escaping an incoming blast can turn the tide of the battle.

3. Blasts
Shooting is what the blast phase is all about. This is the phase where bulk of the damage is dealt.

4. Move
If you’ve assigned either Boost or Blast, you can also move during that turn. Movement is the last thing to take place as the action plays out. After all, you want to blast your opponents before they move.

Energy
Each champion has three distinctive abilities to choose from during the Decision phase. Using an ability consumes Energy. Player’s hero has limited Energy pool that can be recharged. Player can’t use abilities when recharging.

I have play it. The rhythm is slow . Though first eye i consider it might have a play style like crash royale but its not.its like chess round game i guess.(or slg)
theinteractive animation needs improvements and the music also need a step up.
Since I bought the demon 's rise2 before.Maybe this game is made for pvp.so the demon 's Ai enlight me but not blast.
The limited time and smaller player space is a
Good thing. Cuz its a mobile game.it bring something tension.A
Great idea anyway.

The sword girl is by far the coolest.

And I didn't know robots had genders. Or parents.

The game is pretty dang cool, and heck this is only the gameplay part of it, not even the shop/items/leveling up/etc.

So I got an email for the game with a survey. I haven't been invited to play yet so I'm unsure what I'm supposed to do? Was I supposed to get an invite?

Just kidding I found the right email. Okay so I got the email but it is not showing as something I can download. Just this other app called killteam stable and it gives me an error when trying to download.
