Anyone TOFTTAT hopefully and can advise how it be?

I love TDs so hoping this one is good! A video/trailer would be priceless as always.

Any information much appreciated of course.

Thanks in advance!

So I broke down and bought it...

It's pretty fun if a little hectic. It is a combination of tower defense where you can move your ships and very reminiscent of a similarly styled and titled game Fleet Command (HD). You have four classes of ships, each with anywhere from 15 or more types of upgrades for each ship type, on top of the numerous special upgrades... So there is a lot of upgrading to be had, though I am too early in to know how much they impact gameplay or how much the game ramps up to demand them, or how soon.

You tap anywhere to pull up the ship build queue, select the ship you want, pay the price if you have it and pick where you want the ship to anchor when it enters the map. Each ship has three or four slots to place attacks of your choice (you start with one or two each ship type and need to buy more to fill those other slots). They have an automatic fire detection radius but you can click on each ship and move the to a new location, or queue up an attack type and then tap where you want it to attack if you want to attack out of your defensive range. This is where it can get cumbersome as things get hectic and you get numerous enemy ships pouring onto the map, it is very easy to mistakenly move when you mean to attack, select the wrong ship or attack in the wrong spit when you meant to move. The ship control and management could be better implemented and can lead to some fumbled moments. With that said it is still playable if a somewhat flawed or daunting control scheme. I think a line drawing mechanic for movement would have worked better so that firing and movement confusion could be avoided.

You can upgrade each class of ship with "Ace EXP" which you can earn through gameplay or purchase via IAP with packets that start from .99 and end at $45 and $99 offering the most bang for your buck. The payout for stages with the experience is somewhat paltry, meaning that the gameplay leads to a bit of grinding in order to do any type of upgrading for your ships. Just doing the first stage paid out 16 experience where the lowest level upgrade for one particular ship, one particular upgrade type cost 60 experience. The higher end upgrades cost in he 6k+ EXP range, and with numerous upgrades for each ship type, one can imagine that the grinding will get pretty heavy early on.

I will have to spend more time with this to give it any solid answer as to whether I actually like or recommend it. Right now I find it tentatively interesting until I get further into the meat of it. As it stands it is a solid game with solid visuals and sound, a consistent style to its art direction, a somewhat laughable premise (the writing for the "story" is odd) that serves to establish the game world, and solid if at times cumbersome gameplay mechanics. It is still pretty fun to play so far. Right now I am not regretting my purchase but I can see some grinding in my future...

This is based on the iPad version.

No problem! BTW, I need to correct myself! There are five classes of ships: Super Carrier, Carrier, Destroyer, Minesweeper and Battlecruiser... All named after real U.S.N. ships FYI. As retired navy I felt compelled to buy this on principle, hehe!

Also, you can directly upgrade the classes with stars you earn from stages, so if you get three stars, you can use that to upgrade a ship class on top of upgrading the types of attacks (again, that uses that EXP stuff).

If anyone has any other questions I will try to answer and try to track this thread if need be! Hope I helped!

Looks pretty fantastic, but based on Bool's impressions I'm a little hesitant. I usually avoid games that require excessive grinding for experience. If the stick is too long, the donkey loses sight of the carrot...
