FTUE: Timenauts

DeNA's back in the game

FTUE: Timenauts

In our First Time User Experience videos, we play the first 10 minutes of F2P mobile games to experience how developers are onboarding their players in terms of the UX and basic tutorial process.

In this episode of FTUE, we play DeNA's new TD title Timenauts, which is a tie-in with US comedian Gabriel 'Fluffy' Iglesias (although he didn't feature in the tutorial, curiously).

Attack stations

Featuring a smooth early UX and strong cartoon-style graphics, you're defending your base (aka Vessel) in a 2D side-scrolling environment.

As your energy fills up, you spawn your units to defend yourself and destroy the your enemy's vessel.

Then the levelling up meta-game kicks in.

You can see all our FTUE via our YouTube Playlist.
