Yo, it’s that time to assemble your go-to squad and start defending your walls against the omnipresent threat of the Titans! Hajime Isayama’s hit series Attack on Titan comes to life in DeNA Co., Ltd.’s highly anticipated Attack on Titan TACTICS, which is now available to installation on iOS and Android devices in the US, Canada, and Australia.
Attack on Titan TACTICS extends the saga and give it a new spin in the form of tower defense and real-time strategy game that has players building and deploying an elite team of Scouts to save their base from Titans. Fan-favorite characters are set to join the fight, including Eren Jaeger, Mikasa Ackermann, Captain Levi, and more.
The story derives from the first season of the Attack on Titan anime, along with gorgeous illustrations to tell the tale. There are also innovative and original stories to dive into, and you can see a demo of the free-to-start game in action in the launch trailer.
Each arena lets players choose up to five characters to select from to be on their side. The Titans begin their journey as soon as the match starts. Players choose a character of their selection to attack and what particular area they want that character to defend.
Each character differs in where they can defend, so make sure to select the areas wisely. Once a player has been chosen, there is a cooldown period. This means that players will need to wait a given amount of time until that character can be chosen again. There will be a tutorial that explained this intricately before starting.
One of the biggest cons to a game like this is that it feels just like any other tower defense game out already available. Although it is only a demo, there is no indication of anything that will make the game stand out from the others in its genre.
Maybe they are working it as there isn’t an official release date yet. But so far, the early signs are that the game is going to be another repetitive affair.
