Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance Review

Review Eutechnyx Limited By Alex Beech, 2 weeks, 1 day ago
Warhammer 40,000: Storm of Vengeance Review

You don't have to have grown up with Warhammer 40K to understand Storm of Vengeance. The factions are so archetypal that very little backstory is needed to get you up to speed. You can to take control of the Ork Waaagh! armies or the Dark Angels. The tower defence combat takes place across five lanes. At the end of each lane you must build structures to aid you in battle, ranging from mundane resource generators, to troop spawning drop pods and psychic Weird-Boy towers. Deployin…

CCG tower defence game Defenders is out now on the App Store

News By Alex Beech, 4 weeks, 1 day ago
CCG tower defence game Defenders is out now on the App Store

Nival’s take on the tower defence genre, Defenders, has just made the jump from PC to iOS. Adding a collectible card game element to the standard tower defence gameplay, Defenders has you build and customise a selection of towers over 23 levels. You collect cards - and in turn towers - by completing levels. You can also choose to fuse cards you are not using, creating towers with new abilities. All of the original PC game's visual and audio seems to be present in this port. This means on smaller screens that the combat can become quite busy. Luckily, a pinch of the screen will zoom you into the action to ensure that you aren't accidentally throwing up towers in the wrong places. P…


300 Dwarves SD Review

Review Josh Presseisen By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 4 months ago
300 Dwarves SD Review

You've got to bring something to the table when it comes to the tower defense genre, be it cleverly designed or endlessly replayable stages; unique tower combinations and effects; or a twist on the concept that's rarely seen, or possibly even entirely unique. Despite the best efforts of Nimbi Studios, 300 Dwarves gets lost in the crowd, opting for more of a unique visual theme than anything truly novel. You and your fellow dwarves are besieged by the green-skinned menace rampaging thr…

iBomber Attack Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 5 months ago
iBomber Attack Review

The previous iBomber game was a rather standard Tower Defence affair. Not wanting to rest on their laurels it seems, developers Cobra Mobile have switched genres to deliver a top down tank driving, enemy shooting, and vehicle exploding experience. The question is how long is driving around war-torn maps destroying everything in sight enjoyable, and the answer to that question really rests on the player. Let's explore further. Each mission has a series of primary and secondary objectiv…

Dead Stop™ Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 6 months ago
Dead Stop™ Review

Dead Stop is a combination of two overplayed elements of the App Store. The first is the use of zombies, and the second is creating a game type similar to that of a very popular title. In the second case, the tower defense genre has waned in popularity the last couple of years, and if a game is good, who cares if it uses the undead? Dead Stop has these rationales working in its favor, delivering a solid TD experience that happens to feature zombies as its main antagonizers. The zombie…

Bad Hotel Review

Review Lucky Frame By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 8 months ago
Bad Hotel Review

It takes a certain kind of mad clarity to sit there and take the genre of 'Tower Defense' as literally as Bad Hotel does. Conceptually Lucky Frame's game is the same as it ever was - drop blocks as defenses against an onslaught of creatures bent on destroying your base, but this time around you're actually building the eponymous hotel, adding rooms to accommodate tourists and shoot down sentient clouds. I may have lost you on that last point. See, your task is simple - build a profita…

Commando Jack Review

Review Colossal Games By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 8 months ago
Commando Jack Review

It seems that the tower defense genre has been sort of played out for the last couple of years. Oh yes new games come out that add something interesting to the formula, and games come out that remind us why the genre became so popular to begin with, but it's only in the last year or so we've seen an evolutionary shift in tower defense, and what's more is that this shift is so simple, it's amazing not many developers thought of it before. I am of course talking about allowing the player…

Fieldrunners 2 Review

Review Subatomic Studios, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Fieldrunners 2 Review

When Fieldrunners by Subatomic Studios first launched, AppSpy wasn't even up and running. However, it was one of the very first to be reviewed and with good reason - Fieldrunners came to define the tower defense genre for touch devices, combining an open-layout system and grueling challenges that required players to design their mazes carefully to survive as long as possible. Almost four years in the making, the sequel finally hits, but with plenty of regular updates to the original a…

Corn Quest Review

Review NAMCO BANDAI Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 1 year, 9 months ago
Corn Quest Review

When a genre is firmly established, two things generally happen - you end up with your niche fans who almost exclusively live and breathe said games, and you start to push out a lot of regular folk who are sick of seeing the same thing over and over again. Still, the tower defense gameplay has remained a popular one despite its almost rigorous formula. Even still, it's nice to be reminded that there are still fresh ideas to be explored and Corn Quest by Namco manages to nicely use the…

Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

Review Gimka Entertainment, Inc. By Dave Flodine, 1 year, 10 months ago
Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia Review

The first Defender Chronicles was rated quite highly by us here at AppSpy, and with good reason. When Tower Defense games were all the rage on the iPhone, it approached the genre with its own spin on things, which included vertical combat, designated build areas, upgradable heroes, and a whole host of additional game modes. This meant fans had enough content to keep them happy for a very long time. Years later now, the sequel is upon us. With a fresh coat of paint and more hero customi…

iBomber Defense Pacific Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Dave Flodine, 2 years, 1 month ago
iBomber Defense Pacific Review

And the tower defense games just keep on coming! It's hard to be completely cynical about gross over-saturation of a genre when a developer does such a good job of creating an entry into said genre. Not only that but this is a sequel to iBomber Defense which was a pretty solid tower defense title to begin with. As the name suggests, battle now is primarily on the Pacific rim, and while that gives a lot of opportunity for battleships to attack beach-heads or enemies to float upstream, t…
