Android Game Of The Week: Breach & Clear

September 6, 2013 - Written By Justin Diaz

You’ve heard us talk about it before, and with good reason. Breach & Clear from Gun Media and Mighty Rabbit is tactical squad based combat at its finest. To start, if you ever played Rainbow Six, like the old Rainbow Six for PC, you will love this game. There is tons of stuff going on with Breach & Clear, and presumably too much to go over in our Game Of The Week piece, but we’ll delve into as much as we can. 2013-09-06 02.19.51-1
Lets start with the games main features. In Breach & Clear you’ll have complete control over your squad, that is, the squad that you put together right down to the soldiers you want for the missions. Fear not if tactical games aren’t your thing, as Breach & Clear comes equipped with training missions to get everyone acquainted with the game’s control scheme, play style, and how to use the tools you have at your disposal. No stone is left un-turned here. By the time you are done with the training missions you will have a fairly decent understanding of how the game works and how to play it. Although it shouldn’t take more than the first tutorial.2013-09-06 02.22.56
As you play through regular missions you’ll notice that you can dictate each squad members specific movements, breach tactic, and even their directional view once they reach their designated stopping point. If there’s a particularly difficult enemy to take down just throw a flash bang to blind him so you can get up close. You can even gain consumables which will be a one time per mission use item that will help you complete your tasks. From UAVs to breach charges, even a defibrillator to revive a fallen soldier. There are tons of elements to think about in this game, so its safe to say that each move will take some thinking on your part. 2013-09-06 02.38.07
You get plenty of content right from the start but with any great game comes the window of opportunity to capture the audience with replay value, which Breach & Clear undoubtedly has since more content will be coming soon and added as the game gets older. The best thing is that Android got all of the content iOS gamers were given plus all of the content that was added through updates, just at launch instead. 2013-09-06 02.17.48
You can select your team as well as the soldiers who make it up, and eventually once you play through enough missions and rack up some cash you can buy the other teams. Choose from Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces, Army Rangers, JTF2, and SAS. This is all part of the immense customization quality in the game and only the tip of the iceberg. You can customize your loadout as well, making sure to outfit your squad with the best gear and weapons. All weapons and gear are purchased from the market with money you earn from missions. As you progress through the game you’ll need better gear, so you can purchase attachments for your weapons and equip them in the workbench screen which is where you can also customize your guns color and configure the weapons to your desired specs.2013-09-06 02.18.26
Breach & Clear definitely has a lot to offer those who like tactical games, but what new game would be complete without Google Play Games services? Climb the leaderboard ranks and earn achievements from completing missions. You can see you stack up against friends and family in your personal circles, or match yourself up against others in the public section. 2013-09-06 02.28.50Either way, its nice to see this feature here and it seems more and more games will be adding it in. Breach & Clear just launched this morning and already there are tons of downloads, and to commemorate launch the game is on sale for a special price of $1.99.
