How we rate the games?
Fieldrunners is a tower based game. You basically place towers, upgrade them and defeat the enemy. This kind of gameplay is very funny, but the game lacks some stuff I will mention in this review. I personally, like this kind of gameplay, since it is strategy. Based on your experience playing such games, the easier this game will be.
The game runs in 2.5D which is simpler to implement than 3D, but I wasn't impressed at all by the graphics and optimization. First of all, this kind of game, is know to be very good optimized since the enemies move and your towers are placed in a grid, leaving little room for bugs. I will give a score based on the functionality this game has. I have played games where you could upgrade four adjacent towers which where fully upgraded, but in this one there was only upgrade for single tower. Another thing to mention, which was very disappointing, is that you can only upgrade a tower twice and no more. You cannot see the tower powers or attack speed, which is a real pain to tell the truth since your strategy against your enemy will be more difficult. One last thing to add to tower functionality, is that the towers costed the same for each upgrade, making no good sense. There are better games than this and I have not even started judging!
Difficulty is very high for a tower based game, even though there will always be strategy, but the real problem is that since the start of the game, it was very difficult for a level 1. When the game starts, you will have to block enemies in order to achieve better timing and will need to upgrade your towers to have more power. The enemies will vary depending on your chosen level and the round you are playing. If you pass a certain amount of rounds, you will have to defeat a boss which has more power, but will be slower so you can attack him more.
You are defeated after consuming 20 lives, which means that enemy has passed to a certain point removing your lives. There are other different modes of the game, depending on your choice. Overall, the game was not good, especially because I have a lot of experience with these kind of games, so I would suggest searching another game.
