Pixel Legions looks like how a play of Sun Tzu’s book The Art of War would be, if the actors were pixels. The game has surprisingly much depth in comparison with its simple controls and graphics. All you have to do is draw lines with your mouse to guide groups of pixels to new positions.
It’s all about choosing the right moment to go into battle. If you can outnumber your opponent, it’s always a good idea to fight. But there is also the flanking strategy, where you attack a group of pixels from two sides. Or distract your opponent when you’re in trouble, by attacking his base, so he can’t spawn new units. This may all sound a bit theoretical, but the strength of this game is that you intuitively will know what moves to make. As if you’re Sun Tzu himself!
