Antic Entertainment – Platoonz: A Review

Antic Entertainment has recently released a new game called Platoonz. The London, Ontario based company is known to make quirky and fun games for both the casual and hard-core gamer.

Their recent release, Platoonz, follows the same pattern, yet differentiates itself in game play and customization. The game takes the player on an adventure as a soldier building his force to combat evil. The mechanics of the game are very simple to follow; you must build your army and create new buildings to upgrade your force. The side scrolling game offers many different types of challenges from harder and stronger enemies as the game progresses, to always making you guess as to how many soldiers to make.

What’s great is that the game comes with a very in depth and easy to follow tutorial. The tutorial covers every aspect of the game’s mechanics and goes through a trial map to cover the game play.

Another fun fact: the dialogue in the game will make you chuckle and keep you very entertained. Platoonz is a an enjoyable game that’s easy to play. Just kick back and enjoy!
