About This Game

Genre
Gulf of Aden, Task Force Somalia, is a cross-over between real-time strategy and a tower defense game. During the game you command several kinds of naval vessels within the UN anti-piracy task force. You will have to arm those vessels with several kinds of armaments and measures where you have to deploy your vessels strategically during each engagement.


Setting
One thing leads to another within the game's narrative. The situation in the game escalates further and further. You will also notice situations getting more dire by each mission.

It’s a game which deals with a recent subject and which features a lot of violence. Notwithstanding all the shots and explosions there are no actual casualties in the game. You have to rescue all drowning pirates when their ships are blown up. These do earn you merit to upgrade to even bigger or more effective means of violence.


Key features
- 20 unlockable missions with each their own objectives
- Determine your own personal tactics for each mission
- Switch between high detail and tactical view seamlessly
- Free choice of turrets and movement of your navy vessels
- Balance between offensive, defensive and rescue
- Different types of navy vessels you can control
- Deployable Anti-piracy teams by helicopter or zodiac
- Several kinds of pirate enemies ranging from small to large
- Enhance your navy vessels with radar, speakers and extra targeting
- Mines and navigation buoys for quick tactical reactions

Interesting concept, quite different from the standard fare.
You quickly get used to the controls and interface, so it's off to battle in a matter of seconds.

Gulf of Aden actually requires nautical and/or tactical thinking and is not as easy as it might appear. Be prepared to get your backside kicked a few times before you master certain levels (I did!).

A new original concept which I like and recommend. Can't wait for more installments!

At first glance it seems relatively simple and straight forward, but it's actually quite a nice blend between a tower defense game and RTS-micromanagement.

The missions force you to review your strategy as there isn't really a single strategy that's effective in any map. Sometimes you'll need fast ships and mobillity and sometimes you want to turtle up and bring out the big guns.

Oh and the whole sea charts in the captain's cabin setup is a really nice touch.

Really liked it.

This is a different take on tower defence, if you like strategy games, it might be for you to play.

I did like the challenging nighttime missions


7/10

The game is quite fun to play and sure has a nice twist between RTS and Tower Defense. The levels however get quite repetative but are challanging at the same time.
