Default Planet Wars by Colepowered (tactical team based shooter + TD?)




Video: http://vimeo.com/31478498

Seems like a wicked combination of tactical team based shooter and tower defense plus equipment upgrades and customization!

Any TOFTT?

K...

Big complaint; your character constantly stays under your thumb... Making it hard to see exactly where he is.

Other than that, seems fairly decent for a buck... But that one issue is kind of a biggie. Having your character right above your finger would be great...



**edit**

The second control scheme helps a little... You don't need to have two fingers on the screen to shoot, so your character can be moved by touching the left side of the screen, then leaving him there by letting go... =o/

Sorry for not checking that out first...

There are two modes, nice of customization of your gun... Nice spider aliens to kill... Fun fun.

This looks pretty cool, really like the video. Any more gameplay impressions? I'm thinking of getting this, but wouldnt mind seeing more reviews.

I really think a virtual joystick would do wonders for the gameplay... but aside from that, earning credits for parts is relatively easy, and you get to keep the credits you earn when you die, so if you get stuck, you can just keep playing until you have enough $$ to get a couple better parts.

But another control scheme is (imo) needed.
