Tacticool: A Mobile Game Review

Have you wanted to try a fun new game? One that could entertain you for hours? Well let me share with you a mobile game known as Tacticool!

Have you been itching to try a user friendly beginner game on your mobile phone? Or maybe you are a mobile gaming veteran and just want to play something quirky that can fill you with hours of entertainment outside of your normal game? Well let me tell you about a 2D objective based shooter game that you’re sure to love. It’s called Tacticool!

What is Tacticool and How Does it Play?

Tacticool, a 5v5 multiplayer mobile shooter. You play as one of many types of operators in a 2D war torn world where you play objective based missions with five people on each side. You must score 100 points or have the most points at the end of the time limit to win the match. There is also a game mode known as infection where you kill zombies on consecutive levels (10 full levels) and they get harder to kill each time you go up.

Now the meat and potatoes of this game, it’s gameplay and how it runs.

Let’s start simple, the gameplay of this mobile game is actually quite fun, in a sense that it’s addicting and time passes quickly, before you even know it. Playing multiple objective based games and trying to score as many points as possible in a specific time limit (like many other games) is what makes it addicting.

Tacticool has three different modes, I’ll list them one by one.

The first game mode is similar to capture the flag, you need to grab a red backpack and hold on to it longer the the opposing team. You gain points for holding onto it and you also gain points for taking out the enemy players too. Next mode is team death match. This mode is exactly how it sounds, with a slight catch. The opposing team has an MVP, taking out this MVP will score you extra points. You also have an MVP that you need to protect, if you even know who it is, this game doesn’t exactly tell you that, it only tells you when you are the MVP.

Lastly, a game mode that is similar domination, in a sense. You need to protect two control points from the enemy, and if they take one you need to take it back before the time expires. The two sides to this game mode are of course, your attackers, and then your defenders.

This game is amazing, addicting, and extremely fun, but there is a downside to it. Tacticool is a largely pay to win sort of game. They interrupt you in-between games to try and sell you weapon packs and game passes. The thing about this is that the game doesn’t get many new things added to it, so the outrageous pop-ups for buying stuff is quite annoying. In my opinion they do it to make money and they don’t actually use it to update or add to the game much. It’s till fun though!

Graphics and Sounds

Let’s start of with the graphics of tacticool…They are very cartoonish, your avatars have oversized hands, and the weapons seem to big or small for them. This though creates a quirkiness that actually fits with the game, making it even more fun.

Sounds on the other hand are very vanilla, your weapons mostly sound the same, just slowed down and sped up sound patterns that were plugged into the weapons you use.


In closing, I’d like to say that if you like mobile games and quirkiness that can hook you for hours of entertainment, I’d recommend downloading and playing this game. Some people may not like it and that’s fine, but don’t judge a game without trying it first. If you want to play with me on Tacticool, just add me at tshumitto! Have fun, and enjoy the Tacticool Operator life!

My Three Pet-Peeves and What can be Done to Avoid Them

What are some things that make you all upset? People lying to you? Maybe someone canceling plans with you after you had it set up weeks in advance because of some excuse like, “Oh, work called me in.” Or maybe the worst excuse ever, “I forgot.” Those are just a few aren’t they? Well those are totally adequate pet peeves. Well here are my three pet peeves that I have. Are you ready?

  • Untimeliness
  • Unreliability
  • No Integrity

Timeliness is something that I love to see where I work, especially from the people below me. When you are on time, at your post, and ready to roll for the day, I’m ecstatic! If you are untimely, you make me have to call you to figure out where you’re at and then you say that you thought it was a different day or that you forgot to work, we are going to have huge problems. You are required to be at your post at a specific time, and I expect you to be there. No inadequate excuses like, “Oh, I woke up late” or “Oh, I forgot what time I was suppose to be there.” You have tools to know what time you need to be there, so be there.

Unreliable, if you are a flex officer lets say, and I need you to cover a call off, but because it’s your day off you say no, (which is the wrong answer as a flex, as you are not on a set schedule and need to be free as much as possible. It is stated when you are hired on as one.) Then how are you of any use to the team and the company? I mean, if their are adequate reasons on why you can’t come in, then sure, I’m okay with it, but if you don’t have any actual adequate reasoning to why you aren’t able to cover, just that you are busy or you don’t want to work. We will have HUGE issues. I need reliable people, people who are willing to help the team when needed. We won’t have issues if you are willing to help whenever you can.

No integrity, meaning you just lie through you teeth non-stop. This behavior is just completely unacceptable. If you are going to lie about why you couldn’t be to work, or you are going to lie about arriving to work on time, among so many other ways you could lie to try to get out of something, we WILL have issues. I’m a military man, Integrity is a VERY important factor to me. I need you to tell me the truth, if you aren’t telling the truth you start to become untrustworthy, and before you know it, you will never get the help or respect you need because of all the times you “Cried Wolf”.

I feel that a good workplace would be that of people who are reliable, have integrity, and are timely. This leaves less issues between your co-workers and upper management. It creates a great environment to be a team and to do your job for the client and your company. In security, perception is everything. If you can show that you are doing a great job and keep doing a great job and work with your whole team, you become a must for the client and they want to keep you because you are everything they need.

All I’m Asking For

Basically, all I ask for from anyone that works with me or under me is to have these three main traits;

  1. Reliability
  2. Integrity
  3. Timeliness

If you can give me these three things, we will have a great working relationship and a great workplace to be in, and we will be a cohesive team as well. Is this to much to ask from people? What do you all think? Tell me in the comments below!
