OTTTD-logo-500-wide

If there's something missing from most mobile tower defense games, it's a little dash of crazy. The upcoming OTTTD says right in the name what you're getting – it's a crazy over-the-top game that merges traditional tower defense with real-time strategy and a bit of role-playing. It also has a giant cybernetic shark with rocket launchers, which, c'mon... that's awesome.

In addition to all the towers, you have a squad of 3 heroes that you can move around the battlefield to fight off zombies, mechanical turtles, and octopi. The game will additionally have 20 story levels, 12 tower types, 7 hero classes, and 40 neat-o weapons.

OTTTD is coming to desktop and mobile devices, and the graphics in the demo videos look pretty impressive. So the million dollar question (hopefully less, though) is the cost. The developers are planning to offer the game for $2.99 with some additional in-app purchases. It won't be tuned as a pay-to-win game, though. All the extras should be optional, sort of like Kingdom Rush. We'll keep an eye out for it to go live tomorrow.

    Welp, I'm sold =D
    Though if it's a premium game with IAP, I'll be much more harsh judging it

      If the Kingdom Rush comparison is anything to go by, don't be. The IAPs in that is just to make it easier, and it is very possible to complete it without buying one.

        Love that game.

        Kingdom Rush is $1 with optional heroes, and the difficulty is perfectly balanced.
        If this game is $3 and has IAP, I expect the difficulty to be perfectly balanced aswell. If the IAP is requited at any point, then it'll be unacceptable.
        That's what I meant.

    Looks still need more polish. the graphic & UI.

  • Francesco Scarpa

    3D graphic = battery drain

    • LeDerp

      Yeah. 8-bit is the way to go.

    ill be keeping my eye on this depending on price and IAP

  • David Sousa

    I'd pay more than that depending on the game of course. I'm glad they are offering IAP only as extras, not as a pay-to-play mechanism. I don't even touch free games with IAP because of that: you know the game will be impossible or frustrating without buying a lot of stuff.

    It looks awesome!

    I was searching for a high profile 3D TD game in android after I played Anomaly series. Finally I found it!

  • GameSin

    I found Zombie Attack: Apocalypse really addicting. It's a wall defense, not a tower defense, but still worth a shot. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.GameSin.ZombieAttack
