Last Front: Europe Review

Review Plow Digital, LLC By Andrew Nesvadba, 3 years, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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, 4 years 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, 4 years, 2 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, 4 years, 3 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, 3 months 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!

Guardian Knight Review

Review Lineholic By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Guardian Knight Review

Guardian Knight describes itself as a tower defense game, but this doesn't really define the gameplay. Sure, there are monsters that spawn trying to attack the princess you have sworn to protect, and you gain exp to upgrade your abilities, but that's where the comparions end. It's more of an action RPG, with the princess spending each level travelling from point A to B, while you attack everything in your sight to keep her safe. Control is touch and drag based. Movement and attacking…

Gundead Defense Review

Review Longtail Studios By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 4 months ago
Gundead Defense Review

Tower defense games are a dime a dozen on the iphone. If you're going to be taken seriously you need to be offering something special. Well how about multiplayer? Gundead Defense is a solid tower defense game that offers a multiplayer scenario to the genre that works surprisingly well. A young man named Cubby runs off to join his uncle and a gang of bank robbers to make some money, but what they didn't count on was zombies! Like all tower defense games, control is a tap away. Drag uni…

Plants vs. Zombies Review

Review PopCap By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 5 months ago
Plants vs. Zombies Review

Popcap is known for some very popular addictive titles and has had some great success in porting these to the iphone. Now, just short of a year of its PC release, the cutesy tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies is now available on this mobile device. There is a pack of zombies roaming the neighbourhood and as a local homeowner, you must use the power of your garden (and the help of Crazy Dave) to repel the undead horde. Control is fantastic. Every action is a touch away, and even whe…

Space Station: Frontier Review

Review Origin8 By Dave Flodine, 4 years, 6 months ago
Space Station: Frontier Review

The tower defense genre has been one of the more popular of the app store, patrly due to the simplicity of its touch controls.

As a mining operation on the outskirts of the solar system, you are attacked by a hostile force, and must defend your operation. If you've played a tower defense game, you know the basics.

MonsterKill Review

Review Origin8 By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
MonsterKill Review

Monster Kill is a tower defence style game where players are matched against a slew of classic movie monsters as they try to smash through a small gate at the base of the level. Players will dispose of the creatures of the night using a number of different magic attacks that are cast using the unique touch screen controls. Players will start off with a basic slash spell to cut monsters in half by drawing a line on the screen. As you progress further, you’ll also unlock new spell…

Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Review Chillingo Ltd By Damian Chiappara, 4 years, 7 months ago
Defender Chronicles - Legend of The Desert King Review

Just when you thought all Tower Defence games were the same, along comes Defender Chronicles to smack you upside the head with a dead goblin. Yes, the core gameplay is the same but certain changes have been made to break the repetitive nature of most TD games. Instead of placing towers ‘willy nilly’ on the map, players must co-ordinate towers along the specific build zones to make the most effective army possible. The upgrade and placement system is very straightforward as…
