The team at Commotion Games has released an alpha version of its overhead-view tactical shooter Recruits, which is available for download at Desura.

Managing a small squad of troops, players earn points with each kill that can be used to upgrade squad stats and unlock new abilities throughout the game's campaign. Each level includes a variety of objectives, ranging from straightforward seek-and-destroy operations to POW rescue missions.

Recruits can be purchased for $4.95 during its alpha stage. The game will be priced at $14.99 upon completion.
