Defenders of the Last Colony reviews and comments

Translated by

The game has a lot of potential. I love the mix of attacking and at the same time be aware of defending your colony. The fact that there are several types of characters I liked very much, it changes quite the way of playing from one to the other. The Music is great, it accompanies a lot the frantic action of the game. The only problems I've been given to me are random main menu outputs and some occasional fps download (which is also true I have a GTX 580 and the minimum requirements put a GTX 660 required). In Summary How little I've tried the game I've loved, if you finish polishing the fallitos you have will be a great game.

Product received for free (OBTAINED by WGN) Unfortunately unplayable as it is stored (not constant, but from time to time quite strong) A proper Tutorial and a Level Progress ad Would also make sense. I found control in Order (but here also a small Tutorial could have remedied) music and Sound unfortunately not fully customizable (or only with little effect) for me the game is therefore far too loud from sound. Otherwise, I think the Game Is graphic and Gameplay good. There is no (really) story, Unless you count the Intro (which plays every time you start the Game. Way too Loud and Annoying!) As a Story I hope the Developers continue to patch and improve the game so that the Game becomes a nice little Gem, but at the Moment I can't make a Recommendation

Game Description: Arcade in which we are in different arenas must deliver to the base of several energy spheres, while protecting both the base and trying to survive. Enemies appear in circles cyclically up to infinity, so that the first task is precisely the delivery of spheres, and destroy enemies only that are interfering on the way. Pros: ¥ No. Cons: ¥ No Plot. ¥ Completely Non-working achievements. ¥ Bad Sound/music. ¥ A Looped appearance of enemies in the same places. ¥ Poor Textual training, after which I had to think about how and what the method of poking. ¥ No Cooperative Game claimed on the homepage. Only one computer game is Available, up to four people (not tested). ¥ There are mini-games, but they are more likely to tick and pass for a couple of minutes, and sorry... ¥ It was not possible to repair the base... Although It took only once, but with zero number of lives at the base, we can no longer deliver the sphere... I Had to kill myself. Bottom Line: Frankly wanted to turn off and score already on the first level, but the craving for the unknown forced to pass the game to the end. It'S easy to do in an hour, but it won't be exciting, it will just be time spent... Not recommended.
