Hey, if I wanted to learn a bit about multi-unit tactics, what would be a good game to play?

Ideally either something up to two console generations old (so emulation is easy and solid), or PS4/Mac.

I'm not looking for an exhaustive simulation, just Baby's First Tactics. Ideally with some in-game hand-holding on basic tactical considerations because I know next to nothing...

@anthracite Into the Breach is my personal favorite and has a Mac release:

@anthracite It's very good! Has a very nice combo of being fast to play, with short constrained stages, with the unlocking options mostly all being sidegrades/strategy changes as opposed to strict upgrades. As you play it/get better at it, it opens up new strategies and play styles to tinker with. Also the story itself is pretty neat for being told in a fairly constrained fashion (basically just a few pilot comments and mission briefs)
