4Towers Onslaught: Combo TD Review

Review LambdaMu Games By Dave Flodine, 3 years, 2 months ago
4Towers Onslaught: Combo TD Review

Releasing a tower defense game these days is a risky proposition. If it's well made enough or brings a new spin on the genre to the table, it will grab fans of TD games and new players alike, but if it's just the same old TD game we've seen hundreds of times before, the market is significantly smaller. 4 Towers: Onslaught is the latest release in the 4 Towers series by Lamnda Mu, and it differs itself enough from the standard tower defense formula to warrant some interest. The first t…

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 4 months ago
One Man Army™ Review

So, you now own an iOS device and after all of that saving up what's the first thing you're going to buy? Something meaty, something elegant, or maybe something you can slowly plug away at? Don't kid yourself, the idea of playing a tower-defense game on the go was also in the back of your mind too wasn't it? How about a shooter? How about both? One Man Army by Chillingo and Tickled Pink Games tries to mesh the castle and tower defense genres by placing a weapon in your hands, allowing…

Vampire Rush Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 6 months ago
Vampire Rush Review

Combining Action-RPG elements with Tower Defense gameplay sounds like a marriage made in heaven and while Dungeon Defenders had its execution problems on the smaller iDevices, it proved that the concept can (and for some does) really work. Vampire Rush from Chillingo and A-Steroids follows in the wake of this title and while it may not boast the same complexity and depth, the toned down gameplay makes for a much easier game to approach. The basic gameplay consists of players controlli…

Spires Review

Review Prophetic Sky By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Spires Review

I'm a man of eclectic tastes and developer Prophetic Sky previously managed to ensnare me by releasing Townrs Defender, a hero-defense style game that was a rarity at the time. Their latest release, Spires, is somewhat less radical with its relatively standard tower defense gameplay, but shades of something greater lurk behind its thin exterior. Those familiar with tower-defense titles won't be too surprised at the basic controls and gameplay, with towers in standard varieties (direct…

3 Kingdoms TD Review

3 Kingdoms TD Review

Excuse me a moment while I get a bit geeky for a second. After enjoying the TV series of Cowboy Bebop I was excited to check out the Director's new work, Samurai Champloo. Just like the first show this anachronistic, hip hop inspired show just oozed with style, even though it wasn't a culture I was particularly invested in. 3 Kingdoms TD by Joymaster shares a similar enthusiastic, over-the-top style that practically assaults you from the moment you jump in, but amongst the chaos is a c…

Bloons TD 4 Review

Review Ninja Kiwi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 10 months ago
Bloons TD 4 Review

Can lightning strike four times in a row? The Flash version of Bloons TD has survived the multiple releases despite minimal changes over time and in deference to the iOS device users the second and third title have been skipped by Digital Goldfish, launching Bloons TD 4 as the follow-up to their popular original tower-defense game. Much like the original game the goal is to simply destroy the colored balloons before they make their way to an exit, removing points from your health tota…

Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave Review

Review Trendy Entertainment By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Dungeon Defenders: Second Wave Review

Editors Note (Nov 9, 2011): Dungeon Defenders holds, dubiously, one of the most hotly contended scores on AppSpy.com if only because I, the reviewer of the game, wanted to love it to bits. At the time Dungeon Defenders was a whirlwind of magical catchphrases that made my inner-gamer tingle with excitement: Unreal Engine graphics, Tower Defense Gameplay, Hero Defense gameplay, Online Co-Op, Persistent and Personalized Character Development. What wasn't to like about this game? Sad…

Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Review Origin8 By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Sentinel 3: Homeworld Review

Sentinel 3: Homeworld by Origin8 is a powerful new entry in to the 'Sentinel' series of tower defense titles and not only does it demonstrate a level of visual polish that's stunning, it shows a cunning amount of gameplay depth as players slowly work their way through a challenging campaign. Homeworld fits in to the classic style of tower defense games, with towers being locked in to fixed positions around the winding paths that the enemy creeps follow. There's a strong focus on minim…

Monster Feed Review

Monster Feed Review

One of the unfortunate downsides of playing a traditional tower defense title is the lack of things to do outside of waiting for the next wave or staring intently at the gold counter to get the next upgrade/tower. Monster Feed by Day Go By Entertainment takes a different approach and subsidizes its gameplay with a spell system that is not only helpful, but almost necessary to survive. Those familiar with games like The Creeps will recognize the basic formula of Monster Feed as you thr…

iBomber Defense Review

iBomber Defense Review

On the surface of it, iBomber Defense is as radical as departures go for developer Cobra Mobile and their iBomber franchise. However, this latest release for Chillingo shows nothing less than the polished skill expected of their developers and fans of tower defense titles can jump right in without hesitation. iBomber Defense uses a traditional and familiar tower defense style, with enemies following paths set out for them while towers can be positioned and upgraded at fixed locations…

ARDefender Review

Review int13 By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
ARDefender Review

Alternate Reality (AR) titles usually aren't easy for us to review thanks to our video setup, but an exception had to be made for ARDefender by int13 as it just looked too good to be true. While some expectations weren't met, the first time I loaded up the game and witnessed the AR features my jaw simply dropped. However a little setup is required first and you'll need to print out or otherwise use a display showing a distinct pattern that the game can recognize. Once the game recogni…

SillyBunnies Review

Review Crazybunnies Studio By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
SillyBunnies Review

Don't let the title fool you; while SillyBunnies by Crazybunnies Studio may sound like a cute and fluffy tower defense title, it'll humble you with its challenging gameplay. Thankfully the game's difficulty comes from the need to learn how to play each mode and map optimally and not from flaws in the game itself, so before you dive in be prepared to hit that retry button. SillyBunnies is a mazing style of TD with a plain grid layout that makes it easy to drag towers in to place. Pinch…

BoBo Brother Defence Review

Review Joybean By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 1 month ago
BoBo Brother Defence Review

Sure, you could play a tower defense game where you place towers in fixed positions around a track; and sure, you could play one where you can freely place them to form mazes; but have you played one where the towers create a vertical obstacle for monsters to bypass? BoBo Brother Defence by Joybean is all about stacking the so-called BoBo's on top of each other to make use of their individual abilities and stop the incoming waves of enemies. The game gives players a 5x6 grid to drag a…

Review Kyy Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
Legends of Elendria: The Frozen Maiden Review

'Legends of Elendria: The Frozen Maiden' by Kyy Games is a title I can't believe we haven't reviewed already and I'm glad it was one of our recent requests. In this adventure title you'll put your tower defense skills to the test as you fight dozens of battles to defend your kingdom from a looming threat from beyond your borders. As you progress through the game's storyline you'll quickly pick up new towers, each with their own unique upgrades to use in each of the games mini-battles…

A Fighter Defender Review

Review MystoneGame Inc By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years, 2 months ago
A Fighter Defender Review

A Fighter Defender by MystoneGame proposes a small change to the tower defense (TD) genre. Just a small one. How about having no towers? See, not much of a change! Each map is designed not unlike regular TD maps, with winding paths and a few long stretches that would stretch the resources of someone trying to place towers effectively. However you're not placing towers, you're flying a plane and this comes with the rather strong advantage of exploiting the terrain to pick off units qui…
