NEXT JUMP: Shmup Tactics Is A Turn-Based Tactical Shmup

NEXT JUMP: Shmup Tactics isn’t the first turn-based tactical shmup we’ve seen—Mighty Tactical Shooter, which has yet to be released, and R-Type Tactics are just two that I can think of offhand—but it seems to be aiming for somewhat of a different crowd. Billed as a game for “people who are bad at shmups, but love them,” NEXT JUMP allows players to take their time and think out each move in a turn-based manner. It makes use of a square grid, rather than free movement or a hex grid, and features some rather nice pixel art.

NEXT JUMP: Shmup Tactics is available now on Steam for $4.99.
