Wargroove, Chucklefish’s homage to Nintendo’s Advance Wars series, is getting new units in a free update. Previewed in this blog post, the Riflemen and Thief add some new wrinkles on this casual friendly combat game. The Thief, in particular, offers a different way to damage your enemy. Instead of attacking other units, the sneaky Thief hits your adversary where it really counts. Right in the bank account! The Thief steals gold from bases and strongholds, bypassing all that fighting nonsense.
If there is one thing a couple decades of strategy games have taught me, it’s that taking away the other guy’s money is a surefire path to victory. That, or Zerging him.
