Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[XBLA] Toy Soldiers: Assuming control of these Privates!
Released today, Toy Soldiers is a combination of Action and Strategy, similar to Brutal Legend, but also very much in tune with Battalion Wars and Battlefield Midway. Throw in some Defense Grid and you have Toy Soldiers.
This game combines Action and Tower Defense. The battlefield takes place in within a toy WW1 battlefield and you must battle waves of little toy soldiers, collect resources to gain units and place them on the ground. Except rather than be an individual avatar on the ground, you can zoom in and take control of any unit you wish, and switch between them on a whim.
The waves of enemies are advancing on your Toy Box, which holds everything for your army. You must defend it as hard as you can.
Got a fixed machine gun emplaced? Take control and make ground beef.
Just placed some Mortars? Launch them yourself!
Have a Sniper Tower? Snipe your enemies!
Built an Airplane? Drop some bombs! Crash it on the enemy if you don't give a shit!
The game works with Facebook to show different clans representing WW1 Europe. More on this later, when I figure out how it works.
