    Tau Ceti's review

    Published: 2014-03-18, by Peter Warrior.

    An original sci-fi defence game

    • Innovative deck system
    • It may become repetitive
    • "turn based" pace

    "We need reinforcements! And more cards!"

    Tau Ceti is a defense game: you have your base and you have to protect it from enemies. You tap on them and your HQ opens fire in order to shoot them down. However, there are some new features to make the difference from other similar games.

    First off, there isn't strictly a tech tree or upgrade system, but a deck of cards instead, where every card reflects a laser canon or any other defense sytem. Every weapon can only be active for a given time, so you have to draw new cards to replace those which time is due or to adapt to new enemies who may or may not be more vulnerable to special attacks. Area attacks can be launched by long tapping somewhere.

    The board is tiled and enemies hop from one to the other. This poor animation gives the game a turn-based feeling that can make players lose heart. Graphics look cool at the beginning, but are repetitive regardless of the amount of enemies shown.

    In a nutshell, a fresh reinterpretation of defence games, conveniently supplied with tactical elements, worth to be given a go though it will disappoint the most hardcore fans.
