There is no way to force a unit to walk a certain path, but it's not necessary to do so anyway. Landmines, A.C.I.D., lava, and other tile hazards are only triggered when stopping on that specific tile, not when pathing through it.
Yes. I just tested this in a mission by freezing the train on turn 1, and I got full credit for saving the train:
As far as I can tell the "Defend the train" objective is based purely on if the train takes damage, it doesn't actually need to reach the other side of the map.
I believe you can check which pilots you have unlocked whenever your want - I just checked to be sure and it seems you can check while the Perfect Island reward selection screen is up as well as any other time by:
Press Esc or click the cog in the top-left to open the menu.
Click "Main Menu"
Click "Statistics", in the bottom left
Click "Change Pilot", ...
Powering a new weapon is fine, but powering the upgrades isn't.
This was relatively easy to test, since ItB shows which "complete without x" achievements your game is still eligible on the achievements menu. I'll post the screenshots later.
It removes the pilot from your current game and prevents you keeping them at the end of the run, but the pilot will remain unlocked in your hangar (as their lvl 1 version) permanently.
Note that this only applies to the pilots with special abilities. The randomly generated pilots from the start of the run aren't kept on your hangar anyway, unless you ...
The Zenith Guard can be really powerful if used correctly.
The Laser Mech is your primary damage dealer. It deals a lot of damage, and it's piercing ability can allow you to wipe out multiple enemies a turn with proper positioning. Using the Charge Mech dash attack and the Defense Mech pull attack are both great way of increasing the effectiveness of this ...
You pretty much covered it.
The pilot you choose at the end of the run can go with you with all their experience
any pilots you unlock are permanently available as the starting pilot choice.
any coins earned from achievements can be spent to unlock new mech parties to play with
certain achievements earn a permanent bonus, e.g. completing the first island ...
The achievement is unlocked by recruiting one of the three secret pilots,
Unlike regular pilots, these can only be encountered in special pods, not regular Time Pods or as a Perfect Island bonus. A special pod can be triggered to drop during a mission by picking up a beacon hidden inside an ice tile or a mountain tile.
A beacon can be seen under cracked ...
I tested this with a squad containing the Swap Mech, the Nano Mech, and Prospero piloting the Combat Mech.
I powered up flight before the first fight, beat the game after the first two islands, and did not get the achievement.
The Grid Defense starts at 15%, and can be increased by gaining additional power after the Power Grid is full. This is called Overpower Bonus, and can get as high as an additional 25%.
Up to a 10% Overpower Bonus, each point of overpower will increase the Grid Defense by 2%. After that, each point of overpower will increase the Grid Defense by 1% instead. ...
You cannot rename squads at the moment, but one of the developers has added it to a list of player suggestions that they will consider.
If you unlock the pilot Abe Isamu then he makes a great pilot for the Charge Mech - his armour ability cancels out the self damage, so you end up with two powerful offensive mechs and a reasonably powerful defensive one as well.
I've found the Defence Mech to be very useful;
- Its shield is extremely powerful
- It can fly
- It can pull enemies into water/lava
- It can pull enemies into each other's lie of fire
The ability to fly has huge synergy with its pull attack as you are free to position the mech almost anywhere.
I find the Charge Mech a bit less useful; you have to be ...
The grey colour with a yellow outline means that you can uninstall that power core.
When you install a power core, you have the ability to remove it from that mech and install it on a different mech in case you made a mistake. This grace period lasts until the next mission.
That seems to be an old bug, please first of all make sure that your game is up to date.
If it's up to date, then restart your console and you should be able to save normally.
