The only thing that makes this game annoying is the lousy randomizer. Sadly, that's the most important thing in the game. I don't know how many times I've engineered my way to the end, only to have every single roll against single-troop zones lose me 4 or 5 troops. This is highly improbable, but then you see people lose 20+ troops in a row without killing a single one and you know something is wrong.
Was going to give it a 3 or 4 - have seen other games of the type done slightly better - when I clicked through the menus too fast or something and the game got stuck on a view of the broken rocket instead of showing me my launch. Game bug = automatic 2 or less.
This game owns! Only comments I have are (a) control-click doesn't work properly on Mac, so it would be nice to have that changed to shift-click, and (b) would be nice to have a slider somewhere for enemy speed, so you don't have to wait forever on some maps. Other than that, quite addictive.
Items you equip shouldn't be in your inventory taking up space. Or the inventory should be larger. Or you should at least be able to drag items from the ground directly to your Vulpin. Or you should be able to save position in an area and go back to home base and then resume where you left off - having to repeat four stages over again because you were one heal item short is annoying. Also needs to be more items, since the weapon gives you a huge bonus and then all the others are like 3 points max. Later on, you have huge wads of cash and nothing to buy. 3/5 for the game overall, doing the improvements I listed above might bring it to a 4.
Elegant game, but perhaps a little on the simplistic side. Be nice if there were more path twists, obstacles, some speed power-ups, maybe color shifts as you get faster, etc. Can't see playing this more than 2-3 times.
The false restarts have gotten WAY out of hand. This is several days in a row that my first or second game played got killed in the middle by a restart, and unlike the few restarts in the past, these were not preceded by lag, meaning there was probably no reason for them. Either crappy coding or the server has been programmed to restart randomly to force us to view more ads and generate more revenue. I'm downvoting the game.
Was having fun, even without getting to keep my upgrades (which is annoying), but then the game stuck coming out of the upgrade menu and I couldn't use any of my guns - just watch while all the vehicles slowly killed me.
What the HECK? First you guys give us cheap rental items on Easter, and we think this is just you being nice - then after we go ahead and spend a few cash, you roll out unexpected cash costs for just about everything, making it impossible to buy anything halfway decent without paying real-life money for it. You'd already made it so we can't create tournaments with cash prizes. I can understand offering premium items that give people who buy them extra bonuses, but you have gone way too far by not allowing legit players to even come close to competing on an equal footing any more. I was literally one or two days from buying the Steyr Aug at the old price, now I can't even buy the next level down of assault rifle.
I've dropped my rating from 5 stars to 2 stars, have unfavorited TDP4, and probably won't be playing much any more, if at all. How many people are going to pay for premium weapons when 9/10 of your player base is no longer there to create games and be farmed for kills?
