Time Defenders




So basically this is a story of a buffed man, a child and a robot whose mission is to....what? Wrong series? Isn't this Time Sq-oh, Time Defenders. And they uuh defend time? How? ...They have Paw Patrols? Oh Time Patrols...Huh... we'll uh get back to the story later.

Anyways and as always let's just jump to the pros and cons I've gathered so far from playing it.

- Amazing graphics and character designs. Essentially an upgraded version of Arknights
- Fully voiced story, with dialogue skip, looking at you Genshin, even Honkai thinks (jokes) you should add skip function
- Combat environment is amazing
- Story telling is mure fluid than King's Raid
- Combat is essentially like Arknights, strikers/assault has a unique command that let's them charge ahead at opponents (like Kingdom Rush's melee units)
- Combat also has a unique system, that is, the "defense gate" has life bar. So it won't immediately lose points when enemy passes, rather enemy must attack first,. chipping away the HP.

- The story... oh dear the story..... it's my personal opinion but, I'm just so so tired of this trope. MC is a genius, can fight but can't do a thing when enemy boss attacks, he didn't even try to...you know what, I'll let you see it for yourself. The Paw Patrols, I mean, Time Patrols are cool though (yes the cops, not the ones with powers). It's just, King's Raid story is much much better then this. This one, like Arknights, isn't really all that good. I know I'll be "attacked" by saying this, but I still think Arknights story isn't actually that good. If it's story you want, try the likes of Counterside, Honkai, Epic Seven, King's Raid, Blue Archive and Priconne. No I don't recommend Genshin for story...
- The story telling, while more fluid than King's Raid, is still stiff. It's not as smooth as Genshin nor Lord of Heroes or Exos Heroes.
- Response time is still a bit slow. Like Pokemon Masters EX, each button press takes around 0.5-1 second to process. Not in combat though. This particular points leads us to...

Extreme Cons:
- This would've been a fine game to have if not for this FATAL MISTAKE. The growth system design. Like Honkai, it locks your character levels behind your account level. Meaning you have to upgrade your characters everytime you level up. Not just characters, but also skill levels (also locked behind account level). Why is this Extreme Cons? Games like Priconne and Honkai still works with this system because you only need 3 (for Honkai) or 5 (priconned) characters to focus on. So it's not a big hassle. This game though, good luck upgrading 10 characters, or even more. Combined with the slow response time (not as snappy as E7), it's a major hassle.

Overall, it's a good side game, or main game if you want to invest more. Now, I know some people will say don't spend money due to Vespa's current situation, but honestly it's up to you. If you want to support them, go ahead and spend some money, the starter pack is a good investment.
That said, for myself....I don't think I'll play this for long. Even though I got Beatrice, the first chaos character in the game, the story is just not appealing enough. And I mainly play mobile games for the story. Also, just like Arknights, this is not for fans of TD games. Kingdom Rush and even Field Runners will entertain you more than this.
This game is for fans of anime art style game, and fans of live2ds. Because the character designs are amazing. When was the last time you see a football player in gacha? What, Madden? Noo, that's not gacha, that's a "surprise mechanic". So never right?? ...Oh right, Gate Six.....anyway, give it a try, you may or may not like it. Thanks a lot for reading~

I literally have no sense of attachment/interest to any of the characters....Non of them appeal to me like Iroha Tamaki, THE Administrator, Ras Eclare, Aldo, Flame Chasers, Shiroko and Urias....

タイムディフェンダーズ | Time Defenders Gameplay: https://youtu.be/iBKHtJrZnvI



First of all game is not optimized and clunky. It's like unfinished game. I dont mind the ping because of overseas server but as i already played tons of games (pc and mobile), I'd say this game is "hard to play" or to enjoy at least for me I'm using emu bluestacks 32 (RTX 2070) and OnePlus 6T,so far "good" games are working smooth on both my devices such like Genshin,Honkai,PGR,Arknights that needs good phone/pc to run and I'm running with high-end setting for those games - Gameplay : I kinda like the TD gameplay but camera angle is lil bit weird,clicking the characters is way to laggy Idk why most of ppl got bugs but i never find any bugs so far - Sounds : I like characters VA but ingame sound is lil bit luckluster - Story : I don't understand Japanese - Graphics : Well this is OK i think similar to King's raid (same dev tho) Gacha : SSR 3% kinda high, 0.1734% each character and 0.4% for rate up. Have character and equipment gacha both have 300 pity. Idk in the future but the rate banner only last for 1 week. Fcking RIDICULOUS The mechanic ingame is kinda p2w,i didn't expect that from vespa. I just finished ch.2 using base characters but the system to reach endgame upgrade is to get dupes You can feel the power spike after ch.2 The resources is really limited in this game and makes the game kinda unbalanced Maybe it's still early game At least at Arknights i can clear annihilation 1 on day 1 and some story chapters Edit TLDR : So i decided to drop this game because as a TD game,this game require you a lot of grind to keep up and to make it worse equipment system. Means you cannot use low rarity characters to keep up the difficulty As the times go on you need full SSR team with their signature equipment to keep up the hardest difficulty. I mean come on DON'T make it like King's raid equipment system to a TOWER DEFENSE game If you enjoy the game then good luck. I have real life so i don't want to waste my time to a bad game that i can't enjoy If you think this still a good game (copium),just check other reviews (playstore,taptap,appstore)
