"Tower Defense games tend to be a passive affair, leaving AI units to do their job upon being plonked down in the players only involvement in the game. Whilst providing easy to maintain gameplay, you cannot help but feel like the game is playing itself for you. Not very fun eh?
Toy Soldiers rips up the rulebook for this genre of games, instead opting to provide you with an interactive shooter hybrid which sees you take control of your tower replacements in the form of machine guns, mortars and vehicles such as tanks and planes. Rather than watching enemies get taken out by your structures and units, you can instead take control and do the damage yourself."
