Battlestar Galactica Deadlock

A space strategy set in a popular universe created in a 1978's TV series. Developed by Black Lab Games, Battlestar Galactica Deadlock gives an opportunity to assume control over the Colonial Fleet and to take part in a war against the Cylons - a race of human-made cybernetic machines that have rebelled against their creators. The game features both completely new characters and figures the fans of the universe are surely familiar with - however, the story was executed in a way that will not confuse those new to the universe. The player takes part in tactical battles set in a three-dimensional environment. Furthermore, the player recruits officers, conducts political actions within the Cyrannus planetary system, but also extends their fleet alongside progression, based on the unlocked spaceship designs. Apart from the single-player component, the game offers a complex multiplayer mode which allows the player to fight 1 vs 1 duels against commanders from all over the world. All of this is complemented by decent-quality visuals.

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock for PC / Windows is a space strategy set in a popular universe which dates back to 1978. The project was developed by Black Lab Games - a studio popular for the well-received Star Hammer: The Vanguard Prophecy. The game came out for many systems and was published by the Slitherine company.

Plot

The player is taken for a journey to a distant part of space. The federated coalition of twelve planets created by the humans and called the Twelve Colonies, faces an invasion of the Cylons - a race of cybernetic machines that have rebelled against humans, their creators. The conflict lasted 4 years and in this time the colonists managed to tip the balance in favour of their victory. The titular deadlock got stopped however, by a sudden and terrible attack of the Cylons. Rear-admiral Lucinda Cain is the last hope of humanity - she manages the Colonial Fleet from the bridge of Daidalos, which is a kind of a mobile shipyard.

It is worth mentioning that the game features both completely new characters and figures the fans of the universe are surely familiar with. Both the fans of the universe and players new to it should be able to follow the story present without trouble.

Mechanics

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock for PC / Windows gives an opportunity to take part in real-time battles with a tactical element to them, set in 3D environments. The player's main task is to defend the Twelve Colonies against the threat posed by the Cylons - apart from the necessity to win subsequent battles, it involves recruiting officers and conducting inter-planetary politics within the quadinary, planetary system known as Cyrannus. Alongside progression, the player extends their fleet based on the unlocked ship designs - in such a way, the player receives both smaller ships (such as the Manticore corvette) and substantially larger units, like Jupiter, which is the titular battlestar.

Game modes

Battlestar Galactica Deadlock for PC / Windows offers a single-player mode, as well as a competition-based multi-player variant, which gives an opportunity to challenge commanders from all over the world for 1 vs 1 duels.

Technical aspects

The game's three-dimensional visuals can be attractive to many - what catches one's eye above all, are ship models created with attention to detail.
