Casual Gaming done Right!

August 12 2007

I have previously wrote about Casual Gaming and Tower Defense Games, but I am happy to report that I have seen the future of casual gaming! Casual Collective, being built by Paul and Dave, who built so many of those TD games, is a great concept that is being executed very well. Take the basic idea of Tower Defense, add in some scoring and basic matchmaking, and you have an addictive game.

As you can see, there are some fun options to the multi-player games. You pick what you want and then start the game.

While you still play against the 'creeps' coming across the screen by yourself, you are playing against other plays. Racing to kill the bad guys as fast as you can to get the most points and win.

So far, the 'beta' site seems to be playing very well. No issues for me. Nice job guys ... look forward to the next step and more games!
