This morning I tried to google tactica to see where I would end up.
Surprisingly Andrew of App-Spy reviewed Tactica without telling me about it!
I got a 3/5 grade but the gameplay-points he made are fair and valid.
- Challenging tactical gameplay.
- Multiple missions and scenarios.
- Online and local multiplayer.
- Very simplistic 3D graphics.
- Unforgiving strategic play.
Well honestly I didn’t have time to draw detailed textures for my 3D Models so its right they are quite simplistic. But I liked the style, they are not supposed to look like Soldiers from Halo 3, but Miniatures in a Board Game (which often have only one color).
And well one could add Trees like in “Wodan the Trial”, to even out the growing curve, guess I’ll try to do that once I find the time.
One thing he didn’t mention was the full 3D Camera. I didn’t see that many apps having full 3D especially Board-Games. I know it’s not necessary for direct gameplay, but it adds a little bit of a feeling to the “board” of the boardgame. One can move the board around, turn or tilt it like a real board on a table. In computer games the map is usually 2D and just your screen!
So overall I like the review very much, 5/5 grade for the Reviewer!
