Terror Time:

In Brief:
Terror Time is a basic 2D top down tower defense (TD) game.

You can see a few videos of game play HERE, HERE and one via the Steam store page HERE.

The Game:
We've had quite a few of these over the past several weeks. This one is slightly different from the ones we've been getting with recently, most of the usual elements associated with this type of TD game actually included, i.e., increasing number of waves as you progress through the levels up to 10 waves. There are also ten different tower defences ranging from cheap single shot weapons with a radius of 120 to triple shot weapons with a damage of 10, costing anywhere from 200 to 10 000 in game currency. You'll also find energy guns, a laser, a sniper tower, an anti-aircraft gun, a rocket gun, Napalm, a plasma gun and a mini gun (with three barrels). Each weapon has a radius of effective fire, amount of damage and reload speed (the sniper rifle has the longest range but takes slightly longer to reload). Each weapon can also be upgraded up to four times increasing each of the three attributes.

You can also speed up the oncoming enemy and pause the game (if you need to take a break). In the top left of the games HUD, you can see the health of your base and the amount of money you have to spend on your defences. Next to the speed up button is a skull symbol; this allows each wave to start automatically when the preceding wave has finished if activated. Yellow is deactivated, green is activated.

There are ten different enemies, each with different amounts of damage it can do to the home base. Any damage incurred on a level is repaired on the next level of which there are ten.

What is absent that you usually see in this type of TD game are extra non-permanent placement buffs such as explosions and weather effects that can be placed anywhere on the route of the enemy but can only be used once until they are recharged. Also missing are towers that slow the progress of the oncoming enemy.

Once you've completed a level if you restart the game, you can continue where you left off or play any of the unlocked levels; however, if you click on the new game button, it will wipe all your progress and you will have to start from the beginning. There's no high score table or profile page, so only one person can play the game from the beginning at a time; though anyone can replay the unlocked levels.

The game is playable, but until you get to the later levels it's relatively easy to beat the first five levels. On level six a new enemy is introduced that is harder to kill and, if it reaches your home base does 20% damage. Until this point I'd not had any losses apart from on one level where I'd been taking a screen shot so wasn't keeping an eye on the progress of the enemy.

If you like TD games then this one will keep you entertained for about an hour to 90 minutes. I completed the first five levels easily in about 30 minutes. There's nothing original about the game and there's only ten levels included.

I would have liked to see some variation in the backgrounds. Every level I played (i.e. levels 1 to 6) all had the same background detail with a scrub/desert setting

Back in the days of the floppy disks that were included on most compute magazines, you'd get demos of games with more levels included than you get with this game. Still, it's free today. :)

Notes on Security
I scanned a zipped copy of the installed game using Virus Total and it found 1 hit (Acronis (Static ML)) from 63 antimalware engines. I've seen this one a few times, but it's not one of the regular Anti malware engines that tag Falcoware games. This one has given it a suspicious tag, but no actual malware; so, it's very likely to be a false positive.

You can see the scan of the installed game HERE.

The downloaded executable for installing the game 'may' include some low-level adware that only opens your browser once to Falcoware's home page after the game has installed and also places four shortcuts onto your desktop (these can be safely deleted once the game has installed with no effect on the game).

The installation DOES NOT inject any malware into your system. When your browser is opened to Falcoware's home page following the games installation, it earns Falcoware games some money, part of which is given to the developer of the game for allowing the game to be given away for free. Once you've installed the game, there are no more browser redirections. This is because Falcoware removed their installer almost two years ago (that installer would show an advert for a game while the game was loading (which always took about 20 seconds to ensure you'd seen the advert). It would also always open your browser each time you closed the game after playing it.)
If you're still not convinced of the games efficacy and want to be absolutely sure that the game is safe to install, please use a sandbox program to check that the game is safe to install before installing it to your C drive or other drives on your computer (assuming you have more than one drive).

Personally, I've never had any issues with any of falcowares games, even when the Falcoware installer was included.

There are free sandbox programs such as Sanboxie, GeSWall, BitBox, Windows Sandbox, Bufferzone (a six month commercial license was given away via the applications side of the project back in December 2009 HERE), Shadowzone, as well as others. (You'll find them all on the same page from Techwhoop.

This is quite a nice little time-filler, but with a bit of practice I found that to complete the game I didn't need many towers, or types of tower. To start with, learning the various enemies and towers with their associated capabilities, I did struggle with some of the levels. I then set myself a challenge, to see if I could use only 3 towers at any one time, which I could with some swapping of towers for more powerful ones when necessary.
Then I set myself another challenge. Apart from the first level, where there aren't enough units to start with a 400 unit tower, I have found that I can complete all levels with only 2 towers in place at any one time, and using combinations of only the 400, 1200 and 5000 unit towers. While I have enjoyed the challenge, I think I have now exhausted the game.
Thanks to the giveaway team for providing it.

This is watcher13. Over on the regular giveaway site folks were having a discussion on the security software being offered. One of the good folks mentioned the site Have I Been Pwned which compares any email address typed in with lists of major corporate database hacks/exploits. It will tell you if it has been listed as 1 of the addresses that has been, at least partially, compromised. Well, my watcher13 has been, more than once. I thought it had, but I'd forgotten about the site, had never got around to trying it.. Explains a mild increase in spam I've had in the last few years. Fortunately I'd updated the password since then. But it's probably better that I transition out of that and on to another 1 of the online handles I use. So I'll eventually drop that name and go to my mediaman name, which reflects my professional experience.

This is another game, had 1 last week, that gives me a procedure point entry problem into my kernel. From what I researched last week, it's probably not Win XP compatible, though you would think that wouldn't be in the specs if it were so. If somebody knows different, let us know. Also could be that the minimum requirement is a dual core cpu, and my ancient one is only a single, though I got it to work anyway on a game a week or 2 ago with a dual core requirement. Also could be it's not 32 bit compatible. In any case, not a problem. Thanks anyway, GGOTD.

I don't usually install the giveaway applications these days, but your comment intrigued me. So, I installed the app, and it showed 21 affected sites with one of the emails I use to log into various game clients and other sites that interest me. My Steam account is registered with this email and twice in the last year someone with the same IP address in Africa has tried to hack my account, thankfully I have a twostep verification process which stopped them from accessing around 300 unredeemed Steam games in my inventory as well as thousands of trading cards and other stuff that can be sold on the Steam market. The games alone are worth around £3000 at today's market value. They obviously managed to crack my password, which I was really surprised to find as my password for Steam is over 70 letters, numbers and odd character's long, with some nonsensical sections that are made up of silly words I used with my kids when they were toddlers as well as other things that are more familiar and even a mix of two addresses and a school that no longer exists because they were demolished, one to make way for a motorway back in the 70's and the other two for a housing developments; plus many of the letters have been exchanged for numbers. They required my telephone access as well, which saved the day both times. It was scary.

I'm going to do the same with my telephone number later. I did replace my old phone system earlier this year which had a call blocking feature. That has helped cut down cold calls significantly. I used to get several calls a day, since getting the new system back in January I've only had a couple of calls apart from when one of our dwarf rabbits cut through the telephone cable a few weeks ago so I had to use an old traditional phone until I got a new cable. Over that period, I received several calls over two days.

Whiterabbit-uk, glad that app worked for you. I couldn't install, not XP compatible. But, I could use the unrelated website, Have I Been Pwned. Also, the commentator mentioned that Google has a similar service for, I guess, the passwords you use on their accounts. I do have a Google/Gmail Account, out of sort of a necessity at the time I got it, but no Android phone at the moment, and I don't have much reason to use Google. This is more so exacerbated because I despise Google's policies. I call it "Spygle". I realize they are better than they used to be, but what does it say about a corporation that people had to practically put lawsuit and regulatory guns to their head to get them to reform the little bit that they have? And they still blackmail websites for premium spots on their searches. Bah! But, I may still need that Gmail account, so I'll probably try that site, since Google already knows that password. If you have Gmail, you might want to double check it. passwords. google .com
