Solid! Not quite classic, but lots of fun. Great surprises, such as the cows and spaceships. A little easy on lower levels, but gets nicely harder on later levels. Sometimes the screen gets very crowded and it can be hard to get in there and make changes, but that is my only complaint.
Always glad to see a decent tower defense game, but as a sequel, this disappoints. The cartoonish design is too big a change; it no longer feels like its predecessors. And it is largely a big slog, with little challenge other than sticking it out to gain upgrades. Just a pedestrian TD game, nothing more - unlike the two previous versions, which were exceptional.
If your skill in the previous two games was superior bullet avoidance, this is the game for you! My skill in Frantic 1 & 2 was super-high kill rates, usually barely escaping with a minute amount of remaining life. For me, this version is just a hell of bullets I can't avoid, and high kill rates aren't important. So, it isn't really the game for me. I kind of liked that in version 2, different skills were valued - you could be a rockin' bullet avoider or a carefree assassin and either would "count." But, again, if what you like is to avoid a screen full of bullets, this really is a great game.
Great game. Kept me entertained all holiday week. But there are some bugs that should be fixed. In particular, several of the "items" are hit and miss: the Splitter Burst completely fails about 1/3 of the time (and I am careful with my aim), and the Range Boost Item fails about 95% of the time so I don't bother with it at all. Very frustrating! Also, I would like it better if there were more flexibility in choosing levels. I'd like to jump around more. Survival mode is fun - thanks for that.
This is great! Can't believe I've been playing TD games here for years and completely missed this gem. TD fans, if you haven't played this yet, do yourself a favor and try it. Great game play, awesome music (I'm picky about music and I appreciate it when it's done well) and fun graphics .
Sorry, not seeing the need to make the original more complex. Probably because I liked to play the original as a quick relaxing diversion (which, I admit, may not be what others liked), I find this version has just added a bunch of attention-diverting extras but nothing really new. Also, the interface of the original was intuitively plain and readily understandable and facilitated quick play. This version forces me to study everything to find what I want to know: ugh. Perhaps it would be worth it to play this enough for the interface to become second nature, but why, when the original is available. I appreciate the attempt to add more, but for me, the original is better.
Not always a fan of point and click or escape games, but I liked the familiar Bonte touch (the color mixing and such). Intuitive and fun - could be a bit longer. SPOILER: Re: the 3289 - I got the 32_9, but never really found the 8 - I just tried all the numbers in that slot. I am curious as to where the 8 may be found.... Anyway, quite enjoyable.
