What is All Walls Must Fall about?
Berlin, November 2089: The Cold War never ended. For 150 years both sides have used time manipulation technology to observe and counter each other's every move. Now this fragile state of affairs is approaching a breaking point, as a rogue nuclear strike will send the world into turmoil. Both sides have scrambled to send agents back in time to find who is behind the attack and how to prevent it. If they fail, the whole world will turn to ash, forever.
All Walls Must Fall is an isometric tactics game where actions happen to the pulsing beat of the music. You control time travelling secret agents as they jump and loop through a single night in the city of Berlin. Using a pausable real-time system, carefully plan your decisions and use powerful time manipulation abilities to your advantage, as you carry out your mission in the shadows or in plain sight. Levels are procedurally recombined, giving All Walls Must Fall a highly replayable campaign structure, while still offering individually crafted components and set-pieces.
All Walls Must Fall takes inspiration from genre classics like X-Com, Syndicate and REZ, as well more recent indie games like The Banner Saga, Braid, SUPERHOT and Crypt of the Necrodancer.

Neutral:Status: Early AccessPro:Gameplay: Turn Based GameplayAthmosphere: interesting setting / tech noirMusic: suitable to the gameplayCon:Sound: scratchingI like All Walls Must Fall already very much. It has a white environment with a low detail / coarse appearance, but with skilfully set lighting highlights it contributes very appropriately to the atmosphere. Keep an eye on the game if you are into this kind of gameplay, I think it will be worth it. It already has for me.
