TriDefense Review

TriDefense Review

Tower and castle defense is a genre that continues to explode on the iPhone thanks to its intuitive touch interface, so there's little room for any new games that bring nothing exciting or new to the genre. TriDefense by Kalio fails to be an outstanding product amongst others available on iTunes, but does bring a mechanic that may tip fans of the genre over. TriDefense has learned well from its predecessors and has implemented a fairly fool-proof system of dropping, finalising and upg…
