The guy who says this is a mobile port has no idea what he's talking about.
As a Kickstarter backer for more than $30, I got to play this in beta. The game's graphics and animations are a bit rough, but the gameplay itself is fantastic. The Logic Dreams guys made a stand-out hit, and the mix of planning at the strategic level (through trading, supply lines, and etc) as well asread more the flexible tactics make for a fun an challenging game, if not exactly historically accurate.
Hooray on GOG!

I backed this early on Kickstarter so I got to check out the near-complete Beta several months ago. Despite being unfinished, the game still managed to hold my interest for a long while. I am thrilled to see that the commercial release is finally here.
The game is a trifle rough around the edges, but at its core it is charming and quite engaging. There are some departures fromread more historical verisimilitude, but these small sacrifices are in the name of gameplay and breadth of experience so they are easily forgiven. The character development is fun and a bit more advanced than many games in this genre. The homage to Jagged Alliance is palpable and appreciated. The tactical aspects are well-balanced, with some easy fights, a few challenging ones, and plenty in the middle.
Aside from all of the above, the game also garners worthy praise for its unique theme.

A mobile game port it's not. What it is, is a turn based RPG. It's made by developers who love PC games and remember fondly the older style of games with affection.
You can choose how you and your troops deal with the local inhabitants but remember there are consequences for your actions. It's not historically correct but then it wouldn't be much of an RPG if it
I thinkread more those who like a dash of choose your own adventure, also those who like great writing and a wonderful music score, will appreciate Expeditions: Conquistador.
