What is Breach & Clear?
Breach & Clear is a mobile game currently available on iOS and Android. In the simplest of terms, the game is exactly what the title says it is. You control a four man squad with the objective of breaching and clearing multiple rooms. There are a number of different countries and layouts to choose from and gameplay will feature three scenarios; Terrorist Hunt, Hostage Rescue and Bomb Defusal.
To complete the missions, you have to rely on using appropriate tactics as well as upgrading and outfitting your squad members loadouts and weapon attachments.
They give you the ability to customize just about everything, from your helmet to plate carriers and rifle optics to triggers. Many of these items are modeled after their real world counterparts so you’ll probably recognize names such as Crye Precision and SureFire among others.
The world of Special Operations is a tight knit, closed group populated by incredibly knowledgeable and motivated individuals who answer to a life of service. Breach & Clear allows you to take a peek at the world of Special Operations as well as close quarters battles in this highly engaging and detail-oriented tactical strategy title.
Working with members of this elite community and suppliers to the best of the best, gamers will be able to customize and orient special operations teams from around the world as you take on missions that have been planned out by members of this highly selective community.
The folks behind the Breach & Clear mobile game recently reached out us looking for some input on their military strategy game. While most of us here at ITS aren’t world class or even avid gamers at best, there was something else that grabbed our attention more than the tactical strategy aspect of the game.
As with most smart phone games, many are enabling in-app sales as a way to give the player an advantage. Breach & Clear has set up something very interesting in this regard. Through an in-game purchase, you can buy a patch for your characters to wear and 100% of the proceeds of that sale will go towards helping veterans and their families. Currently they only have two patches available with the proceeds going to Operation Ward 57 and the Yellow Ribbon Fund but it would be great to see more charities added to this program.
Right off the bat, the music and menu graphics draw you in. Specifically, the score sounds very “epic” and sets the mood quite well. Swiping through the menus may take a moment to get used to but you’ll quickly find out how to set up your squad and head off for training.
Right after training, you get started with a mission in Kabul. Some may be looking for a first person or even third person perspective but this game focuses on top down view strategy. You tell your squad where to go and what to do and when you’re ready, hit the “Breach” button. With enemies appearing at random locations, you have to make sure you’re prepared.
We’re going to hold off on providing an in depth analysis of the game until we can play more, but we also need your help.

This game looks awesome. I'd love to have it on my android tablet. If I don't win I might still buy it.
Where do we offer feedback? I have a few "issues". I'm willing to bet it just me being stupid. It looks like for less then $15 you can Max out the gear.
Anyone know where you can buy the "real" patches? The online purchase is cool, but it would be cooler to have them. Sorry for being a nob.
Samsung Galaxy S4 here, would be happy to eval and review this for you, especially since it helps our vets!
USAF PGW Vet '90-'91
I'll buy it, particularly if it supports our Vets. I don't have a ton of time to game, but will play this one and offer what feedback I can anyway. Thanks for the post!
I'm running an iPhone 4S and would love to test this game. I can also run it on an iPad and see how it does. I'd be glad to be apart of something that helps veterans!
I have an HTC inspire and would like to help test this game. I can be contacted on facebook with the name Zachary Prewitt.
I've been waiting for this game since I saw a write up on it a few months back. It's selling for $1.99 right now on Google Apps.
Some people are complaining about in app purchases. I find that these sometimes are worth the extra money; case in point Plague Inc. you can advance up in the game. or you can pony up a small bit of cash and get ahead.
I'm not associated with either game, just putting in my two cents.
loved Rainbow Six on the old Playstation versions and played Jagged Alliance for years. I would love to write you an review maybe even an comparison to these games. Would be the first game on my iPhone ever. So maybe a whole new world to explore!
Hi there, I'd like to test the game on my Sony Xperia SP :D
I'm used to post reviews about books, video games, and ever beer ^^
Same as Minhster, I HAVE to wait until the contest is over....
I am willing to test the game and share my thoughts and feedback if I got a free copy. I have a Samsung S3 mini.
... now i can't buy the game until the contest is over.... hah
Galaxy S3 and I would love to test the game and send you feedback, and if I don't win I will probably buy the game anyway looks fun and could maybe help keep you up on your room clearing tactics
My name is Cory Finley from Liion Defense | Concealment and Tactical. I run an iPhone 5 with IOS 7 - I would love to T&E and give my humble opinion. Thx.
iPhone 5 [email protected] thanks
I would love to play and test this game on the iPhone 5.
If it bumps up my odds I should add that I was an Alpha Tester, Beta Tester and developer with the Americas Army project for almost 7 years.... DOH! Don't make me name drop too!
Looks like a fun game, and for a great cause! I'd love to fully test the game and give you some feedback on it. I have an Apple iPhone.
Looks fun. I have an ipad I could test it on. I have email, facebook, twitter, etc on my phone as well so feedback is just a few feet away. I've played games since I was 5 (now 20). I'm glad to see the military charities backing this since several family members, including myself, have served or are currently.
Looks like a fun game. I would like to test and give a review on this game. I have an Android.
Looks like a fun game! Love the concept of using the in app purchases to promote a cause, especially helping veterans.
I'm a Sys Admin with strong troubleshooting and QA skills, I have an iPhone 4S I would be willing to test and provide feedback on.
I'd play on a LG Optimus 4x HD. I already tried the game on a friend's iOS device and I'd like to play through it myself so I can relay some feedback!
I'm a enough of a gamer and I work in digital & design daily that I would like to try this out. Even though I've never entered the "fatal funnel" I think I could still lend a hand in amazing feedback! Happy to help!
This looks like a pretty cool game. I'm an avid gamer as well as an experienced QA analyst.
It looks like my Moto Droid 3 is compatible, and I would love to share my experience with it.
