Summary: I whiled away many hours in my youth playing Cannon Fodder on the Amiga, mostly replaying failed missions. It could be a brutal game, and its anti-war message was completely lost on my young mind, but I delighted in my victories and mourned the losses of my fallen soldiers all the same.
Summary: Since I saw the trailer for Tiny Troopers, I knew that I would like the game. It was just one of those relaxed games that you know you will have fun with. The charm of the little characters was really addictive – reminding me of older times, playing games like Worms and Canon Fodder.
Excerpt: It wasn't too tough, but I won the war. Just me, and three other guys. Except that the three guys were also me, and we all moved in sync, shot badly in sync, blew things up in... you get the picture.
Excerpt: A number of large game series are getting iPhone ports to capitalise on the growing smartphone market, but it’s still relatively rare for a game to go the other way. Tiny Troopers is one of the few examples I have seen, and it handles the transition reasonably well.
Conclusion: The game is not without some problems. This is a matter of personal opinion, but I found the fixed camera on my troopers to be slightly annoying. As the camera centers the action on your squad, you are unable to scroll and scout around.
Summary: Slapping a thick coat of cutesy paint on modern warfare doesn't always make for the most entertaining casual combat experience. Tiny Troopers straddles the line between the serious and the silly rather awkwardly. One minute your diminutive posse is comically spraying gunfire while shouting "booyah!
Pros: Power-ups tie in nicely to scoring, Unlocking special units offers incentive to replay
Cons: Missions grow repetitive quickly, Losing troops lead to major frustrations, Controls make gameplay awkward in combat
Excerpt: Mobile games with touch-based control have absolutely exploded in the past few years. At the same time, we’ve seen the rise of the ‘casual game’ which are experiences meant to be consumed in bite-sized portions.
Excerpt: Quite a few games have an iOS port now – some that work and some that just feel plain wrong – but I was interested to see just how well a game like Tiny Troopers could work with its touch screen revoked.
Excerpt: Games voor je telefoon hebben een grote stap vooruit gemaakt. Eerst werden bestaande games geport naar je telefoon en hadden we te maken met een versie die totaal niet te vergelijken was met het origineel. Maar tegenwoordig gaat het er totaal anders aan toe.
Pros: Veel content voor klein prijsje, Permadeath had leuk kunnen zijn
Cons: Maar dat is het helaas niet, Slechte besturing, Weinig diversiteit
Summary: В любом случае Tiny Troopers смогли, как и Cannon Fodder 3 , доказать, что аркадные войнушки – это по-прежнему очень весело, здорово и прекрасно служат для разгрузки мозга от серьёзных игр. Таких, как Dark Souls , например.
