Tiny Troopers

Destructoid
2 September 2013
  • 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. Tiny Troopers , an iOS title recently ported to PC, is undoubtedly inspired by that classic -- it's an unapologetic homage.

  • Conclusion: I really can’t recommend Tiny Troopers for the PC.  Even ignoring my own issues with the trooper design, I think the publisher’s are asking a lot and not delivering enough for the $9.99 price tag. While the controls are tight and responsive, I think this title is one better left to the quick play opportunities of the less expensive mobile market.

  • 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. Tiny Troopers, by Kukouri and published by Iceberg Interactive, is a simple, if fun little arcade shooter with some minor strategy elements, similar to Bullfrog's Cannon Fodder. Except, as mentioned, you don't have as much control.

  • Excerpt: When you get down to it, it’s quite simple: If you like Cannon Fodder , you will like Tiny Troopers . I believe that, taken for what it is, Tiny Troopers is a well-made game, and whether it is a loving homage or an outright copy is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
  • Pros: Solid mechanics, flexible upgrade system, rewarding missions
  • Cons: Little originality, lackluster visual flair, iffy controls

Tiny Troopers Review

GameSpot
12 September 2012
  • Summary: A flimsy PC port showcases why this goofy top-down shooter is best left to mobile devices.
  • 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

Tiny Troopers (PC) Review

canadianonlinegamers.com
25 November 2012
  • 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. One glance at the iTunes App Store or Google Play makes it obvious that mobile games are big business in 2012. PC gaming has also seen a resurgence as of late, and many developers are looking to hit both markets with single titles.

  • 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. Nu worden zelfs games, die eerst uitkwamen voor iOs of Android, opnieuw uitgebracht voor de PC. Tiny Troopers is hier een goed voorbeeld van. De game kwam eerst uit voor iOs en vindt zijn weg nu naar Steam.
  • Pros: Veel content voor klein prijsje, Permadeath had leuk kunnen zijn
  • Cons: Maar dat is het helaas niet, Slechte besturing, Weinig diversiteit

  • Summary: Smartphones en tablets zijn alomtegenwoordig de laatste jaren. Ontwikkelaars in de gamesindustrie maken dan ook gretig gebruik van deze nieuwe trend; steeds meer games worden geport naar iOS en android. In het geval van Tiny Troopers spreken we van een omgekeerde situatie. Deze schattige top down shooter van Kukouri werd met behulp van Iceberg Interactive geport naar pc en Mac en is onlangs uitgebracht op Steam.
  • Pros: Algemeen grafisch design, Soundtrack
  • Cons: Besturing, Te weinig variatie
