Okay I just bought the beta Gratuitous Tank Battles. From the ads and the videos and the fact that I like Gratuitous Space Battles, I was pretty sure I would like Gratuitous Tank Battles. So far, it’s kind of been a disappointement.
The main thing seems to be that the only thing you can do is play a tower defense style game by chosing defend, or else have a battle that is totally in the dark, if you pick attack. It’s not just in the dark either, your units are routed by the paths that the map has.
What happened to being able to see what you are playing, and what happened to open battlefields or maps, and why does the defend option have to be just another tower defense game? Is there something I am missing here or what?
