Ironclad Tactics reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
It took 11 Hours, with Interruptions, to play through the Main Campaign. With the exception of one Challenge, I have solved everything so far and I have to say. The Game is just an incredible amount of Fun. The Setting is appropriately implemented, with many small Details that you discover every now and then when you know what to look for. The Comic Sequences are well drawn and the Story, which is picked up again in a really funny Song in the Credits, is quite stringent. Top, makes laune and I then play the DLC as well as New Game +:)

Ironclad Tactics A Tactic TcG with Tower Defense Aspects. Very interesting Game principle, which I have already seen in some Places, however, the Implementation fits the chosen Backdrop. We have 1848 and are in the middle of the War but there becomes a Machine which previously consisted only of Blueprints into Reality, The Ironclad. After that, one is thrown into a number of Levels and has to clean your Lanes from the Opponents. You could call it the "Plants vs Zombies" for Adults, but it offers more Possibilities and a Map value feature. Pro--Interesting Story concept-Interlocutors pressed into what I find very high quality and Funny comic. -Wlevelable Cards as they appear in many TcGs-Several Game modes Also daddown a "Puzzle" mode-a Multiplayer function-a Decent Level Of Difficulty-Additional goals to get more cards, which makes the whole thing more tactical. -Cards are divided into "Factions," plus many Upgrades for the Ironclad and Field Cards (such as this Map destroys all Enemies in a Lane etc.) -A large Number of different Cards so far. Neutral game only available in English, which doesn't matter because even with School English you can understand everything important. Contra-a real Contra has not been noticed with so far, just a small defensive Drop. If you get the first Weapon you get for the Ironclad improved to the Maximum you get a Weapon that does two damage but also takes two Rounds to shoot, so the 2 Shot advantage is more of a Disadvantage if you use it incorrectly. Conclusion, since I have not played this Game so far, this is just a Preliminary Conclusion, which is very likely not to change. Ironclad Tactics does a lot of things right and has no Flaws except for 1-2 smaller Things. It's nothing new, of course, and is nothing for someone looking for hard-hitting Graphics or an exaggerated Story. It is a locome-based game that is a lot of Fun and can be frustrating in some Places. It just has this Typical "I can do this even better" Effect. The many small Intermediate goals encourage you to play the Levels more often, resulting in a long Game time. My Opinion, for each of The Plants vs Zombies has played or Tower Defense Games may be worth seeing at any time.
