Long story short, it’s awesome. The most significant change is that there is a hard level cap on your pokemon (even ones that you have caught yourself) based on the gym badges you have. So before you beat the first gym, the max pokemon level you can have is 20, and the gym leader has a team of 6 level 20 pokemon. This is actually sort of roughly analogous to how my brother and I used to play the pokemon games, with the self-made restriction that each pokemon in your party had to be within one level of every other pokemon.
This means you really have to consider type advantages, train up appropriate guys, and not just brute force the whole game with one pokemon. I’m having a blast so far. Turns out pokemon with a couple important rules tweaks is actually super sweet (and it was pretty sweet before).
There are also a few more very nice quality of life changes such as:
1) Experience is gained much faster
2) There is a built-in 3x speed option
3) The game shows your EV’s if you’re into that (I’m not that hardcore)
Anyway, here is my squad. (They’re dope)
I’m gonna be on the Space Junkie podcast talkin’ about Solar Settlers next week. You should tune in and check it out! 🙂

Whether you’ve played Minos on Steam, played Militia on iOS or Android or are totally new to BrainGoodGames, I hope you give Minos on mobile a try! You just might like it (Sam-I-Am)
Minos Strategos has been approved for release on iOS, which means ALL SYSTEMS ARE GO for a full launch.
So! The launch date is now THIS FRIDAY (September 1st)!
Can’t wait for it to SLITHER its way onto your devices (heh).
Getting very close to releasing Minos on Android/iOS (hopefully this week).
It’s taken way more “rounds” of polish than I expected but I’m finally getting to a place I’m pretty happy with.
Very curious to see how well it does compared to a) Minos on PC and b) Militia on Android/iOS.
Militia was released on Android under different circumstances (the first ever BrainGoodGame release) and as a free app, so it’ll be interesting to see what effect that has.
