Tripod Attack Review
Tripod Attack is short and simple game while displaying amazing graphics. However there is a lacking depth in strategy that player can apply in-game. All the user needs to do is replay levels to get lots of cash to purchase all upgrades and you win. Just prioritize on enemies that deals most damage first.
It would be nice to have a variety of weapons to take down enemies such as homing missiles that explodes lasers or extendable legs that pierces enemies from underground or perform a minor earthquake by hitting the ground to stun enemies or summon mini tripods to assist in battle.
Apart from that, how about allowing players to play on human side to defeat the giant alien Tripod instead? Double the fun as players can summon a variety of soldiers, tanks and aircraft to defeat Tripod before it reaches Day 15. There are some improvements Tripod Attack can implement such as having Visible Upgrades:
1. Upgrading Heat Radius displays smoke turning red and radius looks wider.
2. Upgrading Shield displays bigger hexagon blue shield upon absorbing damage.
3. Upgrading Ray displays more sparkling red laser exhibiting from Tripod’s cannon.
