Top Critic Average
While Kaiju Panic isn't going to win any awards or fans for its contributions toward the strategy genre, it is still a very fun, cute, and refreshing addition to the tower defense genre. In addition, the sheer amount of stages and Kaiju types to defeat provide a lot of content that make this game a great value and easy to recommend.
Kaiju Panic is a fun action strategy experience that can provide hours of entertainment. Great colors and design, not to mention varied stages and often hilarious moments keep things lighthearted. Unfortunately, the emphasis on trial-and-error until you find the correct strategy, as well as on replaying stages to get all the resources, weigh it down a fair amount.
It would be harsh to overly punish Kaiju Panic for the problems that it contains, simply because the mix of tower defence and RTS gameplay works so well. It surely won't be to everybody's tastes and some will get frustrated when a lack of knowledge or a varying enemy attack path causes them to fail a level, but those that like a challenge will enjoy what Mechabit have created here.
Kaiju Panic's imaginative take on real-time strategy and tower defense games is a charming tribute to its cinematic inspiration, but its unforgiving design can't help but compromise the joys of its adorable aesthetic.
