About

Fantasy turn based strategy game in an unique nature theme. Core Features: Combo system, campaign, tabletop like drafting, arena, rankings, unique skills and maps. Lots of rewards and game elements to discover.Early Access & Single Indie developer disclaimer Hey everyone I just wanted to take the chance to say some words. I am a single indie developer and put a lot of work into Timbertales. I know there is a lack of quality in some images or layouts. I wished I could have done better, but after one year of development I had to go live somehow. I am very interested in your true opinion and feedback and appreciate it a lot, but please don't be too harsh (I have some feelings left :)). It is possible to adjust a lot of things and I would do it of course, if there is enough concern about Timbertales. DescriptionI am an one man army Indie - Developer and proudly present you: Timbertales. Timbertales is a fantasy turn based hex strategy game. I wanted to create a game, which has the feeling of classical games like Battle Isle, Battle of wesnoth or Jagged Alliance, but with a very unique nature theme and challenging content. In Timbertales you will first have to draft an army before you can start a match. Unlike other turn based strategy games: You will not have to produce units in game. Its more based on a table top strategy game approach, where you have to build up an army with a specific point limit before the match starts. While processing through the game you will be able to unlock more units, which can be used in drafting. In game we have a classic hex tiled map in an isometric view. You will have to move your units around the map and clear out different map objectives to be victorious. Every attack is handled instantly: You will see the results as fast as possible and you are able to plan your next steps immediately. Many units provide very special abilities: You have the choice for just normal attacking or using very special abilities, like healing, cursing or heavy attacks. There will be very unique game modes for solo playing and multiplayer. Let me introduce the features more detailed:FeaturesRacesThere are different races: Vermin and sylvans. Each race consists of multiple units, which are very unique in look and feel. Some units will also provide some special skills and behaviours.CampaignsA story mode for every race in game. Every campaign contains of multiple missions. You will be able to earn many rewards, which are very useable in the other game modes. Enjoy the exciting story of Timbertales Innovative mission objectives and challenges Master all missions, special achievements Explore the content and unlock new characters and treasures ChallengesVery unique game mode, draft an army of limited options and climb up a special ranking!

SpheresA defeated Unit has a special drop chance of an unique type of a sphere. There are heal spheres which can heal your units, critical strike spheres which increases the critical strike chance for several rounds and acorn point sphere which increases your acorn points. Acorn points are the in game currency to unlock features. RankingSeveral rankings will show your progress through different game modes. There will be lists for arena, challenge and ranked mode.MapsIn challenge and multiplayer mode there will be special maps to play on. These maps provide special optional map objectives. If those objectives are completed different events can happen and will grant you an advantage. Combat The combat system is based on the system which is used in "Starcraft". This means we have different unit types and different attack types. The unit types are small, medium and large. The attack types are normal, piercing and breaking. If two types clashes each other the types are used to calculate the critical hit chance for the unit for example if a normal attack type is fighting against any armor type he will always have the standard 10% critical strike hit chance. But if an piercing attack type is fighting vs. a small armor type he will receive a 100% bonus which means he has a critical hit chance of 20%. Critical hits will be displayed with a bigger yellow number while normal hits are shown in white color.

Timbertales reviews and comments

Translated by

Product received for free Early Access Review Strategy with step battles. Beasts fight insects. I would call the game not "Forest tales", but "Forest Showdown"! The game Has no resource extraction and construction bases. All resources in "Timbertales" are acorns. This is local money to buy animals and improve. "Timbertales" was created by one person. This indie developer inspired games such as "Battle Isle", "Battle of Wesnoth" and "Jagged Alliance". Do not look for External similarities, the essence of the turn-based battles. Fights are made in classical style and are typical for this genre. During The course, we set the action for each of his fighter, and then the enemy goes. The Game is in early access, but already surprises with the variety of content and the ability to play as one and with friends in multiplayer. The Graphics are simple, reminiscent of browser games, but looks attractive. Due to this, the game occupies quite a bit of disk space (total 400 MB) and is not demanding on resources. "Timbertales" introduces diversity into the classic genre. I have not Yet seen a strategy about the war of animals with insects. Create your own forest army and tear into shreds of invertebrates, arthropods insects!

Early Access Review "Timbertales" turn-based strategy in a unique wildlife setting. Very unusual turn-based strategy. The Units here are the animals, the battlefield-the forest, and the game currency-acorns! At each level, the isometric map is divided into hexagonal cells, which will move our forest wars. At the beginning of each mission to create a brutal army. It'S not like most strategies. Here the troops can be dialed only at the beginning of the job. It is impossible to Create or buy additional units! But in some missions can be found on the map replenishment for his troops. The fights Themselves are typical for most of the turn-based strategies. We go all units in turn, and then the move is passed to the enemies. Each of your animals has different number of health points, different damage, melee and ranged abilities, critical strike chance and special abilities that can be used instead of attack (treatment, special attack, etc.) With Killed enemies sometimes fall health areas, raising critical strike and acorns (analogue of money in the game). Pass the mission, unlock new units, find treasures and open special achievements. The Game is exciting and diverse! Fight against the backdrop of wildlife with different insects and animals. You will be amused by cute little animals instead of the usual soldiers and equipment. You can read other reviews and subscribe to our curators. Welcome! 5 minutes of game
