    Kuara demo is a clever low-poly action tower-defense real-time-strategy game. You can equip your character with mech-ish weaponry and attack the enemy bases before they attack yours. Wave after wave defend your base, or obliterate theirs with projectile weapons from your three unique mechs.

    Conclusion:
    Kuara ran perfectly with staging version of Wine. For some reason stable Wine 4.0 would not even launch the game. Once in-game, everything ran perfectly without issues on my GeForce GTX 1060. It is a short demo, about 15 minutes long, but its engaging and pretty fun. When its over there is no control to end the game, so I had to Alt+Tab back to PlayOnLinux, go to Configure, Wine Tab and Kill Processes.
