A challenge for your mind calling on skills of Evaluation, Adaptation, Optimization and Anticipation.



The story unfolds in a sci-fi universe ruled by technological exploitation of nature's elements.

The world has been infested by threatening elemental beasts.
To face the problem, territories decided to counter the infestation and developed drones using elements as source of power.
Over time, this divided the world in 5 factions dedicated to the elements of Water, Fire, Ice, Earth and Electricity.
Now, trained agents equipped with such drones represent each faction security against elemental beasts.
Today, you are an agent sent on an urgent mission to protect a new territory from infestation.

@Matrix You are right. I did this mistake because in french the word "elemental" is not a correct word, we use the quivalent of "Elementary".

You keep using the word "elementary" in the description - this is incorrect. The word you're looking for is "elemental". "Elementary" just means basic, simple, rudimentary.

I like this, but I have some feedback.
- Sum up your description. I'm also from a country that speaks a latin-based language and I know how many words we use, but good writing in English requires objectivity. Additionally, some phrase don't say much, such as "Setup tactical combos with collateral damages".
- Not everything on the features list is actually a feature, but gameplay mechanics.
- If you want an international audience, sub in that screenshot in French for one in English.

I say all that because I want to see this game released; its description should be eyecatching and brief, people don't spend much time before deciding if they will upvote. Cheers!
