OTTTD just got even more OTT with new endless mode and enemies

OTTTD just got even more OTT with new endless mode and enemies

The wonderfully fast-paced mix of RTS and tower defence that is OTTTD just got even more bombastic with a brand new update. OTTTD was never short on challenge, but this update bolsters the toughness with a new endless mode. Containing five missions, this mode has you holding back unending swarms of walking eyeballs and floating sharks in an attempt to make your mark on the leaderboards. If five endless missions weren’t enough, the campaign has also had an overhaul. Another five missions have been added here also, along with 20 new enemy types to test your mettle. To help you in your ongoing war, Herocorp has sent in additional supplies. A tactical field guide offers you a com…

Feudal RTS Autumn Dynasty Warlords receives massive Insurrection update

Touch Dimensions has just given its wonderful RTS Autumn Dynasty Warlords a substantial free update. Titled Insurrection, the update adds a huge amount of content. If you were absorbed by the game’s feudal storyline, the new 'Against All Odds' scenario offers you the perfect excuse to jump back into the campaign.  On the other hand, if it was the RTS battles that kept you enthralled, then the random scenario generator will provide more scuffles to keep you amused. As well as the additional scenarios, Insurrection also brings a number of tweaks to the already fine tuned RTS combat. Most interesting of these is the ability to pause during battle to issue commands…


OTTTD iPad Review

Review SMG Studio By Alex Beech, 6 months ago
OTTTD iPad Review

OTTTD (or 'Over The Top Tower Defence') does a pretty good job of living up to its title. Every stage, you are swarmed by bizarre cartoon aliens, and must erect towers to fight them back. Each vanquished foe leaves behind a bloodied corpse, meaning that, within minutes, your base in drenched in an ocean of gore. While the action is frantic, the classic tower defence gameplay is easily mastered thanks to its straightforward controls. Tapping on any construction point brings up a radial…

Overkills abounds in new iOS tower defence game OTTTD

Overkills abounds in new iOS tower defence game OTTTD

Apparently, OTTTD is an acronym for Over The Top Tower Defence. And, in fairness, the game's overblown explosions and wacky cast of units deliver exactly what it says on the tin. While it may have tower defence in the title, the game actually blends a fair amount of traditional RTS into its melting pot of gameplay. Along with the standard defensive emplacements, OTTTD lets you take command a squad of heroes to take the devastation directly to your foes. RPG elements are also mixed into OTTTD’s flavoursome gameplay stew. You can level up your heroes, and personalise their equipment to suit your play style. If the trailer above isn’t enough, then you can always check…

Age of Empires: World Domination is planning to conquer touchscreens this summer

Klab Inc. is bringing Microsoft’s real-time strategy franchise Age of Empires to iOS this summer in the form of Age of Empires: World Domination. The mobile reimagining of the RTS classic will bring with it a number of changes. If you were a fan of the series on PC, then the most important of these alterations will be the touchscreen controls. Removing the quick clicks of the mouse controlled originals, Klab Inc’s are promising intuitive gesture controls and a "revolutionary battle system". Like the original games, World Domination will feature the ability to build your empire from history's great civilizations. Your choice of faction will dictate the structures available whe…

See the first gameplay footage of upcoming RTS The Ember Conflict

Substantial Games has just released the first footage of The Ember Conflict. The real-time multiplayer strategy game is currently in development by the studio, and is set to be released on iPad this Autumn. The Ember Conflict will focus on the multiplayer side of the RTS genre, with players battling it out in one-on-one or two-on-two matches. Each player will take control of a small squad of characters which they must guide around the tight, single screen arenas. As the video below shows, you perform a series of taps and sweeps to move units. This use of the touchscreen will be familiar to anyone who has played Autumn Dynasty or Autumn Dynasty Warlords, both of which used the system to gre…

Block Fortress: War will be knocking your block off tonight on the App Store

Much like previous Block Fortress titles, Block Fortress: War - which set to land on the App Store tonight - borrows the Minecraft aesthetic, and repurposes in the name of violence. The latest entry in the series is a fast-paced intergalactic tower-defence game in which you battle five alien races in your efforts to rule the galaxy. Each of the game's races has their own weapons and heroes, all of which bring their own strengths and weaknesses to the battlefield.  The tower-defence gameplay also features real-time strategy elements, with capture and control points helping to turn the flow of battle. Capturing these hotspots allow you to build additional upgrades and weapons ou…

RTS sequel Autumn Dynasty: Warlords invades the App Store a day early

After nearly a three-month delay that has had us sharpening our swords in anticipation, we thought we were prepared for the scheduled appearance of Autumn Dynasty: Warlords on the App Store tomorrow. However, in an unexpected sneak attack, Touch Dimensions has decided to release the RTS sequel a day early. Set in feudal China, the massive 4x (explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate) strategy game  puts you on the path of the Autumn Emperor. Destined to unite the country under a single banner, you will have to build cities, conduct espionage, and raise armies to 'convince' the other provinces that you should indeed be their ruler. Featuring real-time battles, a non-linear camp…
