iBomber Defense Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 5 months ago
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, 3 years, 6 months 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, 3 years, 6 months 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, 3 years, 6 months 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…

Legends of Elendria: The Frozen Maiden Review

Review Kyy Games By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 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, 3 years, 7 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…

Ravaged by War Review

Review Lambda Creative LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 7 months ago
Ravaged by War Review

I'm partial to the odd tower defense (TD) title now and then and even though I've been playing them since I discovered them in Warcraft 3 it's a genre I can safely return to as it's a fairly safe bet as games go. Ravaged By War has thrown its lot in with the big boys on the App Store and despite its interesting theme the game does little to add to this already flooded genre. But this isn't usually a bad thing, because if other TD fans are like me they'll dip their toes in now and then…

Last Front: Europe Review

Review Plow Digital, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Last Front: Europe Review

We're digging through the archives a bit here, but Last Front: Europe by Plow Digital is one of those games I definitely regret not picking up on the first time around. Early on Last Front feels much like an open area tower defense title like Field Runners, giving you the option of placing towers with relative freedom to 'maze' incoming units. However as you progress through the campaign, unlocking new and diverse maps, you'll have to account for units with clever AI that attempt to o…

Save Sylva - TD Review

Review LIMING CHEN By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Save Sylva - TD Review

For some, like myself, jumping head-long in to strategy title complete with its deep rule-set and mechanics is just the thing you need to provide a fulfilling distraction. But every now and again all you want is something simple, something polished, something like Save Sylva by clovare. There are only 6 towers in total to manage in Save Sylva, with most of the game being easy enough to complete with the first 4, however the real trick is in upgrading them. Instead of a basic 'level up…

Guns'n'Glory Review

Review HandyGames By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 8 months ago
Guns'n'Glory Review

Part tower defense, part real time strategy, Guns'n'Glory by Handy Games has certainly done a good job of grabbing my attention. In this Western themed title you'll need to ambush pioneers, taking them in for ransom, but don't get complacent as they'll try their hardest to avoid trouble by weaving through different canyons, forcing you to pick up and move your forces on the fly. Each of your 'towers' can be moved in order to deal with the constantly changing situations by tapping to s…

Star Wars: Battle for Hoth Review

Review THQ Inc. By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 9 months ago
Star Wars: Battle for Hoth Review

Star Wars: Battle for Hoth by THQ is almost a perfect storm of nerdy ideas. Lets run the list: Star Wars? Check. Tower Defense? Check. Situated on Hoth? Check. I mean, just how can this go wrong? Those familiar with tower defense titles won't be too surprised by the basic controls and gameplay of Battle for Hoth, with units slowly being added to your roster as you progress through the main campaign to highlight their use and importance in your arsenal. In a small twist, these 'towers'…

Bio Army Review

Review DigiRabi By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 months ago
Bio Army Review

Bio-monsters are invading, so it's time to crack out the troops to defend your base. Bio Army by DigiRabi forgoes being weighed down by a well crafted storyline and gets straight in to the action for this fairly standard tower defense title. Various military units acting as 'towers', buildings and traps can by dragged on to the game's fixed grid placements while upgrades are performed by selecting structures to bring up a detailed menu. Each level has various obstacles that prevent pl…

Pew Pew Land - Multiplay Defense Game Review

Review Mobile Force By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 12 months ago
Pew Pew Land - Multiplay Defense Game Review

Pew Pew Land by Mobile Force is probably one of the first tower defense games to incorporate such a comprehensive set of multiplayer features and is definitely deserving of its 'Multiplay Defense Game' title. Pew Pew's TD gameplay is almost worth the price of entry by itself, but with the ability to play head to head against friends or even co-cooperatively this is definitely a must grab title. Pew Pew's gameplay is standard for tower defense games, using a grid based positioning syst…

R.O.S.M ( Revenge of the Summon Monsters ) Review

Review Varshia By Andrew Nesvadba, 4 years ago
R.O.S.M ( Revenge of the Summon Monsters ) Review

At first glance, Revenge of the Summon Monsters (ROSM) looks like another typical castle-defense game. Monsters walk in, while you upgrade your defenses to prevent them from destroying your castle. However, ROSM combines the classic castle-defense mechanics with regular tower-defense style monster pathing to come up with something that's new while being familiar to fans of each genre. Summoned monsters of the realm have decided to rise up against those who have enslaved them and being…

Now that we have the stock plot requirements in place, lets get back to blasting endless waves of zombies!
