This game is pretty fun at first, but then quickly devolves in an annoying exercise in playing the same level over and over again because you end up with 99 out of 100 hearts. Here are some problems I found: - Like another reviewer said, this is unlike the first Toy Defense in that you cannot convert stars to hearts, so if you finish one or two short, you just have to keep replaying. In TD1, you could convert some and make up for that one lousy tank you missed. You have to be perfect. - The game has some kind of annoying variable strength feature to the enemy soldiers. Early in one scene, a single soldier can kill lots of enemy soldiers by himself. At a later level in the same scene, you find that multiple cannons and soldiers can blast away at the same enemy soldiers and it takes five or ten shots per soldier to kill them. It makes the upgrades seem sort of pointless except that you need them just to keep up, but then you cannot get enough of them because you are flooded with all different types of enemy units and not enough money to upgrade everything you need to. In TD1, you knew the stronger enemies based on a different appearance or color. There are still different colored enemies, but the standard gray ones spontaneously get a lot harder to kill. - Don't even get me started on that stupid purple tank. You can blast that thing all day with the most upgraded guns and it still won't die. This brings me to the bottom line. The game stops being fun after a while and just becomes irritating. I played on the "casual" setting too. If I wanted to play some super-long, challenging game, there are plenty of those out there for PCs and gaming systems. I play these little Internet games to have a little harmless fun. If I start getting mad at a game, I'm not having fun anymore and the game becomes just another annoyance in life.
