The first impression of this game that struck me hard was how much it resembled Call of Mini, from the top down display to the similar graphic designs and whatnot. I then came to the realization (or expectation) thatTiny Troopers 2: Special Ops would be a game to remember.
There are 2 different types of 3rd person shooters. Heck, shooters in general. You have the ones that stick so closely to reality, looking to replicate scenery and buildings with as much accuracy to real world images as possible. Then on the opposite end of the spectrum you have the ones that plunge gamers into an alternate reality, a fantasy world where everything appears so exaggerated but yet so pleasant.
Tiny Troopers 2 seems to be a combination of both.
While cartoon-like in nature with its 3D graphics, the game retains elements of real world items.
But palm trees in a war zone?
I loved how the game played out with a wide variety of weapons waiting to be accessed. More often than not, the really cool and awesome weapons served as motivation for me as a player to carry on grinding level after level just because I wanted to see what kind of cool stuff the expensive ones did. Then you also have plot twists like zombie survival levels to spice things up.
At the time of this review, Tiny Troopers 2: Special Ops is available as a free app, but not for long. Grab it before its gone.
Would I Buy Again:Yes
Learning Curve:Moderate. Rather easy to learn.
Who Is It For:Fans of top down shooter classics like Boxhead.
What I Like:The variety of weapons and stuff make it interesting to keep playing
What I Don't Like:Gameplay is more or less the same with repeated grinding, but the developers have tried to spice it up with twists in levels.
Final Statement:If you liked the Call of Mini series, you should like this one.
