Let’s Play Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy – Entry 1 – Captain on the Bridge

Welcome to Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy! In this new tactical space combat game, you’re put in command of Naval Strike Group 7 just as a new war between humanity and the odd alien race known as the nautilids appears to be rekindled. In this first entry, I take us through the first couple missions of the campaign, which serve as part tutorial, to help get and give a feel for how this tactical game plays out. The options given to prospective admirals here are pretty extensive, from power management to movement orders and everything in between. I really enjoy the WeGo nature of the movement and combat here, it reminds me a lot of the old Avalon Hill games Over the Reich and Achtung Spitfire!, in a very good way. Thanks for watching my first video of this game, and stay tuned for more!

  1. So good. I want to lick this game like the mixing spoons after whipping up a batch of cookie dough.

    That was a bad analogy, but you get the idea.

  2. I normally don’t buy games until they’ve been out a few years and are 4.99 but this looks so awesome I had to pick it up. Can’t wait to get out of work tomorrow. Goddamn it I’ll bet someone calls out and I have to work a double!

  3. Watching this video I was talking to the screen, saying things like “no no no don’t do that!” and “watch out, you are going to hit that guy again!”. So of course I am going to have to buy and play this now.
