About Operation Outsmart

Operation Outsmart is an openworld RPG with the ability to build your own mobile battle build. Based on the Euluru Island, the habitat of intelligent koalas, it is your job to take back the land and stop the koalas living in fear. To do so you need to defeat the villains that have infiltrated their lands. The villains are agents of the future who have time travelled to the past to send rare metal ores to the future through a wormhole. The player must complete quests in order to get resources and upgrade their build. The build then can be used to battle against the villains on the island and save the koalas.
