About This Game

Lock, load and let the gibs fly in OTTTD, a Tower Defence/RTS game with RPG elements that pits you against some of the weirdest creatures in the multiverse.

OTTTD stands for Over The Top Tower Defence, and you'll see why when you're blasting 9 kinds of hell out of a Cactus Ghost that's making a beeline for your battlefield HQ. You play as a commander for HEROCORP™, the 4th largest private military organization in the galaxy. A long period of peace has left the company coffers a little bare so the science division developed Trans-Dimensional Rifts, opening up lucrative opportunities for war in other universes. It's like Starship Troopers meets Stargate meets Spaceballs, with way more explosions!

Features


Ridiculously definitive edition
Prepare your eyes and ears for incredible deluxe-ness! Featuring crisper sound and high resolution graphics, the PC release of OTTTD will leave you feeling like you've actually stepped into an alternate universe and started blasting everything to smithereens.

Deep RPG Mechanics
OTTTD lets you choose from 7 hero classes to make up your squad of 3 battlefield employees. The more action they see the more XP they earn, giving you the chance to level them up through custom skill trees, including powerful combat abilities to unleash during the fight.
• 30+ active abilities
• 40+ passive skills
• 30+ equippable weapons
• multiple armor options with stats to suit your play-style

Weapons! Weapons! WEAPONS!
With 12 tower types to build and 6 different firearm classes, HEROCORP™ has got the hardware to ensure you can wreak havoc in your own personal style.

Disgustingly varied foes
The range of enemies in OTTTD is wide enough to soothe even the itchiest trigger finger. Floating eyeballs? Check. Gunclams? You know it. Giant armored Wartoises? Of course. You'll even go toe to fin with a giant flying shark, and show the mythological Kraken who's boss!

The Story
The year is 2136. You work for HEROCORP™, the universe’s 4th largest private military force. Your job is to “preemptively defend” the Earth against alien dimensions. As long as you complete the missions under budget and fill out the TPS reports in triplicate, everything goes smoothly.

Is pre-emptively defending Earth ethical? Who cares when the money’s good!

The game has seven unique Heroes, which do not change the type of towers you have per level. Normally, taking the Rocketeer, Sniper and Sabateur would give you great boss-cleaning capabilities while the towers deal with the weaker enemies that usually swarm.

But honestly? Take the Assault, Engineer and Sniper with you. Every few seconds the Assault will make the lovable 'awwwght' sound that Arnold is known for making. I'll leave it to you to hear this for yourself.

Pros:
Awwwght.

Wide variety of towers.

Heroes don't fall off in the late game.

Awwwght.

Explosions.

Amazing strategical variety in the enemies. (They are resilient to certain types of damages, so you can't just build ten Rocket towers and call it a day).

Awwwght. I can't put enough emphasis on how hilarious it is to hear this after you nuke a giant crab.

Cons:
Confusing at the start, as the tutorial goes by fast and explains very little. (Though it is very easy to pick everything up after one or two levels).

The camera
-Difficult to control.
-Panning might sometimes cause obstacles to block your view of towers and enemies.
-No edge panning.

Bringing up your Steam Overlay causes one heckuvva lag spike. Beware of this on slower PCs.

Slightly grindy at points.

Awwwght.

Weapons and abilities are not explained very well.
-Will not tell you what the attack style is (i.e. Some Sniper Rifles are automatic, while others are bolt-action and some single-fire clips).
-Damaging abilities will only give you either the damage, or the duration and never show a cooldown time (i.e. the Nuke deals a large amount of damage, but has an attack delay that they do not tell you about).

The majority of the cons can be overcome by just going into battle, mind you.

Overall, I'd rate this game 9/10. The only annoying flaw is the camera. Grinding is a thing in just about every game, so that shouldn't even be up there.

Awwwght.

While at first, I was having a lot of fun with this game, it became a little too grindy for my tastes.

The first half of the missions straddle the tactics/tower placement/hero skill tree perfectly, and I was enjoying exploring the various classes and their skill trees to change up my tactics, or find ones best suited to the maps I was playing.

However, the second half of the game is far too frustrating because it always feels like not matter what you do, it's not enough. The best way for me to explain this game is that it feels like a F2P game that had in app purchases to "quick buy" skill points and the better items, except, even if you wanted to do that, that option is not there and time is the only investment.

Again, a mostly fun experience that got really frustrating. After 19 hours I've had some fun with this game, but it's time to move on. A "no" rating from me, unless you're looking for a squad/skill upgrade tower defense game AND you've already played the excellent Defender's Quest.

I've played for 2 hours and made it to mission 11 of 20. I didn't realize it was a PC port of an android title until after I started playing, so at first I wasn't sure that it was a good choice. It turns out however that;
- It's pretty fun and has some cool and sometimes pretty amusing features
- After playing the standard edition, deluxe and OTT versions don't sound worth it at all

At first maps looked like they were way too small and felt cramped. Tower placement is restricted to spots around the map marked with an X. Also you can't increase the speed of the game. None of these were really an issue in the end later maps were big enough and you just need to make sure you have a good combination of different types of towers in limited locations where you are able to place them. You also have a pool of up to seven heroes, three of which you can take onto the battlefield each stage. I unlocked five of them by stage ten. They can be ordered around the map to attack enemies and also have special abilities which can be upgraded as your heroes level up after completing stages. My favorite heroes were the recon and rocketeer. The rocketeer can periodically call in a powerful cruise missile strike anywhere on the map. The recon was able to mark targets so that the rocketeer and any missile turrets could fire missiles at them even if they were out of range. That was my favorite thing about this game. Not every tower defense game has stuff like that. Also you can buy weapon and armor upgrades for your heroes. This is how you spend your coins and medals. I just bought the standard version of this game so I earned all my currency just by completing stages. Some of the stuff is pretty expensive especially the armor, so I could only afford basic weapon upgrades. This didn't really seem to matter, I still kicked ♥♥♥ without better gear. I don't see why you would want to get the deluxe or OTT editions of this game just for extra coins and medals. 100,000 coins will only get you two sets of basic armor... You also use medals to resurrect fallen heroes between stages, but so far my guys hardly ever died. I don't seem have a shortage of medals. Again another reason why I don't see the point in paying more real money for coins and medals. Why would you pay for extra currency in a non free to play single player game?

Some of the enemy models were really amusing. There are giant disfigured teddy bears that shoot laser beams out there eyes and obese green skinned cleaver wielding zombies that ride mobility scooters lol amd puke gibs all over your turrets and heroes. Also I really liked some of the dialogue, one the heroes sends up Batman 'my throat hurts... do you have a throat lozenge?' lol

Maybe there are actually people out there who want the extra art and stuff. But the Deluxe and OTT editions are over double and triple the price respectively of the standard edition. This problem is easily solved by just getting the standard edition lol, which I recommend trying.

My original review was fairly critical of this game due to the controls. Within a short period of me posting my review the developer personally responded to my criticism, thanked me, and then a week later released a patch that addressed the vast majority of my complaints.

Seriously, at this point I'm incredibly impressed. The game is quite fun and the developer clearly cares about their product.

OLD REVIEW BELOW.

This game is pretty solid, even with the little bit that I have played. At this point I am really wishing I would have bought this on iOS or Android though because the PC ports has some issues with the controls that leave me feeling frustrated because I feel like I am playing on a touch screen but I am forced to use a mouse as an intermediary. So much standard PC game design convention is thrown out the window just to make this a fast port.

1) Everything is accomplished via left-click, including moving your hero. Let's face it, the standard PC control for moving your hero from point A to point B is to right click.
2) The battlefield camera is incredibly myopic and should be able to zoom out a bit farther on larger screens.
3) The battlefield camera doesn't auto detect your mouse position and start scrolling the screen over when you mouse gets to the edge of the screen. Instead you must left-click on an empty area of the map and then drag the screen over as if you were using a touch screen tablet.
4) The scroll wheel does nothing useful. If it isn't going to zoom in and out very much, It should probably be set up to scroll through your heros in the same way as the tab key does instead.
5) When you have a special ability queued up your cursor doesn't give any indication that you are in that context. If you're activating a special ability and are moving the mouse we tend to expect our cursors to reflect what is about to happen when we click.

As I said before, I really like this game. On mobile I would really, really enjoy it. Unfortunately the PC controls are just nothing more than a sloppy port from a mobile game. I'll tolerate the annoying PC controls because I'm enjoying it regardless
