What is it about?
Tiny Troopers was originally an iOS game where you controlled a small battalion of fighters and sent them on bite-sized missions with one or two objectives.
The game was designed for an iPhone—for a pick-up-and-play experience—yet on the PC I found that having to use a mouse (because using the trackpad was incredibly frustrating when trying to aim and fire) makes it feel like a game that you have to invest more time into. The short missions now feel choppy and too brief.
One thing I was also shocked about with the game was enemy deaths. The characters are all depicted in a cartoonish way, however, some enemies would cry out after being shot or even try to get back up, and so you would have to shoot them again. It just felt in stark contrast to the aesthetic of the game.
Why should you play it?
If you were a fan of Tiny Troopers on iOS and want another place to play the game, or if you like army mission-based gameplay with a variety of weapons and power-ups, you’ll probably find Tiny Troopers on PC to your liking. However, with choppy missions and a price tag of $9.99 (instead of $0.99 on iOS), in Tiny Troopers I found it hard to soldier on.
Tiny Troopers is available to download for PC and Mac for $9.99.
