You might be engrossed in Halo 5 or Fallout 4 right now, but there is a game that might have escaped your notice. "Toy Soldiers: War Chest". Made by UBISOFT, this game is truly a hidden gem!
The concept is simple, Tower Defense/Real Time Strategy. Here is the down and dirty plot line. Using themed toys, you must quest through various battlefields and defend Your Toy Box. With all the various tower defense genre games available on your smart phone, I can see how this might be tedious and boring to some.
Trust me, it's not. Filled with sometimes dry, yet silly humor; there is hours of entertainment to be had. From World War I era toy soldiers, Space commando themed toys and even a "Rainbow Brite"-esque set of toys; you choose your commander and battle.
I haven't even gotten to the best part yet. When you buy the game, at least on Xbox 1 like I did; you get a free down load code to add other commanders, teams and levels to your system. This is where I am UBER GEEKED! G.I.Joe, COBRA, He-Man Masters of the Universe and Assassins Creed!!!!!
I am a child of the 80's, so this game has REALLY MADE MY WEEK! Of course I have been playing both G.I. Joe and COBRA! I have always been a huge fan! Here are some screen shots from some of my game play!
At only $29.99, you really have to give this game a shot! It is very reminiscent of "Army Men" from Playstation back in the day. So to UBISOFT, GREAT JOB! If you guys are looking to add some commanders as DLC here are my recommendations, "MASK" "EXO Squad" "Transformers" "Smurfs" (cause that would some funny stuff right there) and I doubt Disney would let their claws off of Star Wars, but I can dream. Anyway, GREAT JOB UBISOFT!
