How do 'games' like this even GET on Steam?! Even my worst ZX Spectrum games 30 years ago had more depth and gameplay than this nonsense

JDP, Totally agree with you on this. For the past several years, at least since the Greenlight project started, and since the introduction of cheap and free game engines, we have seen an increasing number of these appalling games that are not even worth calling demo's released on Steam. It seems all Valve, the creators of the Steam platform and the creators of games such as the Team Fortress , Half Life, Left 4 Dead and the Counter-Strike franchise's are bothered about are $$$$$$£££££'s. They don't care about the quality as they get a certain amount of money from each developer to have their games added to the Steam store, and then get a large cut of the money made from sales. They used to say they were a game platform for gamers. Now they are allowing trash to be sold on Steam, partly to supply the game collectors with cheap games that cost literally pennies, so that they can brag about how many games they have in their Steam libraries. One guy in my friends list has almost 19 000 games, at least 7000 of them being added since 2017. He's played about 40% of them and most of those for literally minutes. I think this is one of the reasons some of the big game developers like EA games and Ubisoft have stopped releasing games via Steam and more will follow.

There are now a growing number of Stats sites that quote the top lists for various things related to Steam, for example those with the highest number of achievements, the highest number of Steam badges, the most money spent on games and the greatest amount of time played since joining Steam (to name just a few). One person on that list has hundreds of thousands of hours played, yet, if you work out how many hours they have actually been a community member, it works out they have been booting up literally hundreds of games running concurrently every hour of the day 24/7 since they joined Steam. Why???? The whole thing has got out of control and makes no sense.

WWII - TD
In Brief
WWII - TD is a Tower Defense game using the free version of Construct 2 . The game installs to C:\Program Files (x86)\WW II TD by default and once installed takes up 145MB of disk space.
Introduction:
The following is an edited version of Steams take on WWII - TD; I've corrected some of the grammar and removed or changed a few words for more appropriate language; Even though this commercial version of the game is only £0.79/$0.99, Valve should be sued for false advertising). Here's the edited version of the games description on Steam:
'' The Second World War; you, the commander of the Allies tank division must defend the city from the oncoming enemy tank invaders via the only available route into the city! At your disposal are the newest tanks and weapons for destroying the enemy. For every destroyed enemy tank you earn a reward.''
Edited reference accessed HERE, 11th July 2019
WWII - TD is yet another very basic game created by Nekyau Games, with old school graphics, using the free Construct 2 engine.
There's an endless stream of tanks attacking your position. Each kill earns you 10 credits and each tank that gets past your defenses and enters the city (no graphical representation seen on the level) loses you 10 credits. However, placing your first tank in a suitable position then your second at the start of where the tanks appears is all you need to do to stop any enemy tanks from invading further than a second or less (see the second image below), in fact you can destroy every invading tank using just one tank if placed correctly (more or less anywhere). One of the videos I've linked to below shows you where one suitable spot is i.e. at the end of the route. :) Occasionally a enemy tank may get a shot off at the first defending tank, which costs you 5 credits. After leaving the game to run for 20+ minutes, that defending tank had been hit several times but was still there with no apparent damage, and I'd accrued over 9000 credits that were equivalent to destroying over 900 tanks and enough to purchase 300. At this point I stopped the game by clicking on the X in the top left hand corner of the window. (the game always opens in a window by default, even if you have previously closed the game down in full screen). There is no menus, when you first start the game, after the Construct 2 splash screen, the first and seemingly the only level, opens up directly. There are no instructions, and to exit the game you have to click on the the X located in the top right hand corner of the window. You can open up the window to full screen, but it's not a true full screen because if you have more than one monitor turned on you can drag the game to any other monitor plus you can continue to work on whatever else you wish to work on, for example, I started to pen this comment/short review while the game was still running, then I booted up one of my old games that I've just got back into playing called Battlefield 2.
Once you've placed your first tank in a suitable position such as at the start of the path or at the end, that's all you need to do to stop any tank from getting through the level. There's no base to defend, just a reduction in your credits by -10 if an enemy tank gets through to the end of the path and enters the city. I left the game to run with no tanks defending and my credits registered over minus 4000 (see the last image below) with no end in sight to the level, just a continuous stream of enemey tanks entering the city.
Your defense tanks cost 30 credits each and you only require one shot to destroy an enemy tank. Despite the original introduction on Steam implying that there were upgrades i.e ''At your disposal are the newest tanks and weapons'' that would imply more than one tank and weapon type are available, but this is not so; you only get one tank with one cannon available. This cannon appears to be ineffective against your tanks as a hit only costs -5 credits, and your tanks appear to be able to take many hits with no apparent damage. Once your first tank or couple of tanks are set up you can leave the game running indefinitely as there doesn't appear to be any specific waves attacking, just one endless stream of tanks.
You can see a few videos of game play HERE, HERE & HERE and see the few reviews posted by the Steam community HERE. If you are a Steam game collector, you can pick this game up for £0.79/$0.99 HERE
Conclusion:
This has to be the worst top down 2D Tower Defense game I've ever played. There's no menus, no help , no upgrades, and no variation in the levels environment, , and to cap it off after leaving it to run for 20+ minutes it appears to be a single 'endless' level . The enemy tanks look like poorly constructed models and your defending tanks are even worse. . After 20+ minutes of game play and over 9000 credits later (equivalent to over 900 tank kills with the loss of zero tanks I closed the game down and deleted it. I can't even give this a score as I think its worthless. I would recommend yesterdays game giveaway Aerospace Forces, which is still available until Friday morning HERE. It's an old school space shooter (Shmup) that is ideal for those less experienced with such games.
As I mentioned in a previous giveaway that used the free version of the Construct 2 engine a few weeks ago; back when my son was six years old, he was creating games from engines such as Atmosphir Gameglobe and then Minecraft engines that were far superior to WWII - TD. Why Valve allow today's game giveaway in the Steam store is beyond me? There are far better Tower Defense games either commercial for example my all time favorite tower defense games, Defense Grid: The Awakening and Sanctum 2 plus shed loads of free tower defense games via the many browser sites you can find online such as MiniClip, Crazy Games & Kongregate, or via free game sites (usually includes adverts and sometimes browser toolbars) - see the end of this comment for links to loads of downloadable free tower defense games :)

All of the following are freely available via MyPlayCity, Gametop or FreeGamePick: Fort Defense, Garden Defense, Goblin Defenders: Battles of Steel 'n' Wood, Iron Heart 2: Underground Army, Iron Heart: Steam Tower, Iron Sea Defenders, Iron Sea Frontier Defenders, Royal Defense, Royal Defense: Ancient Menace, Royal Defense: Invisible Threat, Toy Defense, Toy Defense 2, Toy Defense 3: Fantasy, Beefense, Garden Rescue: Christmas Edition, Garden Rescue, Defense of Egypt: Cleopatra Mission, Defense of Greece, Medieval Defenders, Steam Defense (side scrolling TD game), Alien Hallway (side scrolling TD game)Anti Zombie Defense, Miami Zombies, Bath Salts Zombies, , Day D: Time Mayhem, Gnomes Garden 2. All of the above games are still sold at various game distributors becasue they are still commercial games, however, they have come to an agreement with the original developers that allows them to give the games away because they include adware that earns the distributor money, some of which goes to the developers. In fact they can earn much more from their older games by allowing this that via direct sales once the initial release has passed . Personally, my all time favorite Tower Defense game are Defense Grid: The Awakening (the first game I ever purchased via Steam), DG2: Defense Grid 2 and the First Person Tower Defense games Sanctum and Sanctum 2, all of which I highly recommend, especially when they are on sale.
Finally, this is the last chance to get the Time Management game Overcooked for free. In a few hours (6pm UTC, 1pm EDT) it will be removed and changed for the award-winning Action RPG Torchlight, which was one of my favorite arcade RPG's games back when it was released on Steam HERE almost 10 yeas ago.
