Huck Gee – BattleTails Available Now for iOS
Woot! The wait is over (well at least for iPhone/iPad owners)… Huck Gee’s BattleTails which was funded on Kickstarter back in 2013 is available now on iOS with the Android version due shortly. You could keep reading this post or simply head on over to the Apple App store and get to playing. Still Here? Ok, so BattleTails is a free-to-play action tower defense mobile game featuring gorgeous character designs and art by Huck. While we haven’t had a chance to get too far into it yet (darn energy systems!), the game play seems fairly deep with plenty of unlockables – troops, towers, equipment for your hero and more. Visually the game is gorgeous and it’s presented well. Oh, did we mention Vampy is a playable hero? Checkout the screenshot above which we lifted from BattleTails.com.
Hmm, what else? The game runs equally well on both iPhones and iPads. In terms of controls, the virtual buttons might take some getting used to, but at least it’s just forward and back. So far, based on limited time with the game, the size of the battlefields is a bit limiting, hopefully they expand as the game progress. Also, the stats system for the equipment and characters is a bit confusing, at least so far. It would be nice to be able to compare them side by side. These are just our first impressions, we’re looking forward to having a blast exploring more. Go give BattleTails a spin and tell us what you think.
Props to Huck and crew for releasing BattleTails. Huck continues to tear it up in 2015, with his very own platform toy (“The Blank”), a new saga of customs based on that platform, and now his very own game.
