While each element of this game had it’s ups and downs, I was still able to get sucked right into the battles on every stage. Even when battles dragged towards the one-hour mark, the rhythm of construction and conquest was compelling. The catchy music and the destructible environments meant that each fight was fun, even when it was frustrating. Though there were some flaws and stumbling points, I can still easily recommend 8-Bit Hordes to anyone looking for a simpler stroll through RTS territory.
Playing 8-Bit Hordes then is a bit like walking a tightrope with boredom on one side and frustration on the other. There are occasional moments when the game offers an exciting balance. But most of the time it fails to watch its step.
8-Bit Hordes doesn’t really do anything special to put it into a league of its own. Utilizing your troops to attack enemy bases and structures can completely be bypassed by just creating as many troops as possible and sending the gigantic horde in. Even though “horde” is the title, this method takes away from the fun characteristics of the game.
