This challenging episodic RPG uses the GPS in your iOS device in a fresh, unique way.

A unique combat mechanic. Within X-Tactics' combat engine, you have two factors that play into how well your attack works. There are boosts that you have to connect, and then you must tap the screen when the combat indicator is in precisely the right location. This determines how well your attack does, and can mean the difference between missing your target altogether and destroying it utterly.

A unique combat mechanic
You can defend yourself, of course

You can defend yourself, of course. When you are attacked, you must defend yourself. You have natural defense capabilities, but there's also an element of skill involved. How precisely you can tap the combat slider will determine how effectively you defend yourself. It moves quickly, so you need excellent reflexes.

When all else fails, blow something up. For a potentially quick end to a battle stage, you can blow up some of the objects on the battlefield. This can do damage to you, of course, but it is very effective in wiping out several attackers at once.

What is it about?

X-Tactics, or "Cross Tactics," is a GPS-based episodic RPG with new chapters each week, that takes place in a world, similar to our own, but one where top-secret government agencies and secret societies, maintain the peace and world order by manipulating the truth, news and history. As the player, you are in charge of the X-12, one of the most influential secret organisations in the world, commanding a ragtag cast of secret agents, adventurers, and treasure hunters, dedicated to maintaining world order through suppression and control of the truth.

For those who...

  • Think monsters might be real
  • Love episodic games

Not for those who...

  • Want the game to be done in a day
  • Don't like roleplaying games

Why we love it

The gameplay is a fresh take on the RPG genre, as it blends traditional turn-based tactics with a bit of fighting game combat mechanics, placing player skill and tactical sense as key for victory. X-Tactics is also unique in it's use of GPS and local weather conditions to affect tactics, skills, and also to unlock secret treasures, and side quests, as you delve into missions of urban exploration to protect your hometown.

= 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.
