What’s better than a free game? Not much, which is why you should check out Tiny Space. That’s two new free games this week we've covered, the other being Monster Burner with Xbox Live. Tiny Space is a tiny game, but it’s pretty fun. Let’s check it out.
After downloading Tiny Space you’ll notice no tutorial, but that’s okay because gameplay is straightforward and simple. If you aren’t in a waiting room, playing with sound is recommended. It’s got a nice, futuristic soundtrack that gets you into that deep space battle mode.
Gameplay is fairly simple. There are three bases on the board: green, blue and red. You’ll select your color and difficulty. Start with easy to get the hang of it, medium and hard are fairly challenging. When the game starts, you take command of a bunch of starships that your base generates.
Your objective is to destroy the other two bases with those starships. The place where you tap the map will direct your starships to aggregate (gather). As your ships destroy others you’ll get the option to upgrade your fleet on the left. You can increase their damage, armor, speed, and health. The trick is deciding which skill you want to upgrade your army with. You win by destroying the opposing bases.
It’s a fun game. While it might need a little more polish (a tutorial to start, and balancing the difficulty settings), it’s hard to argue for the price of F-R-E-E. It’s one of those games that works well at killing time when you have a few minutes to spare. How cool would this be with an online multiplayer mode?
You can grab Tiny Space for free in the Windows Phone Store right here. It’s available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8. QR codes below or swipe to the right in our app.
