While there’s a bit of silly fun to the premise, in terms of gameplay the loose nature of everything gets frustrating
As you may know, if you’ve been reading my reviews for quite some time, I tend to have a soft spot for weirdo and off-center games. At least for me, some unique amusement can at times compensate for gameplay that may be a bit more lacking. That said, for me Fluffy Horde goes just a little too far off the core enjoyability reservation, despite its assortment of furry enemies of all shapes and sizes. There’s just a lack of precision to what you can control and how, inconsistency in how things sometimes play out using the same core tactics, and more often than not stages quickly descend into spamminess as you try to rapidly create and upgrade units to keep up with the onslaught. I suppose there’s entertainment to watching it play out in real time, as they swarm your defenses like a mass of sharp-toothed fury, but I really wanted to feel like there was more clearly some sound strategy in play rather than just trying to manage chaos through whatever means possible, reacting more than thinking. That said, if you’re just looking to be entertained and don’t mind some quirk, this will at least somewhat do that job until it starts to get repetitive.
