The game's RPG mechanics, unique art style, and variety in towers, enemy types, and weapons, make for a satisfying tower-defence experience. OTTTD is a must-buy for fans of the genre.
OTTTD is a great example of taking a straightforward type of genre like tower defense and adding just enough of a twist to it to make it stand out. Whilst the lack of touch controls limit its fluidity on such a mobile platform, its bite-sized nature suits the Switch perfectly.
OTTTD is an acronym for Over The Top Tower Defence, and over the top it is. For those of you who don’t know what a tower defence game is, essentially you defend a home base by placing and upgrading static towers at set points along a road which enemies will come down in waves. Placing the right towers in the right places is essential, for example, a tower that slows enemies before several big damage dealers to make sure you get the maximum effect.
it’s tailored right down to the core as a simple way of passing time with accessible challenge. But SMG Studio has nailed that brief, and this game does deserve to be considered among the very greats of the genre.
