Navy Patrol: Coastal Defense Review

Ninja TD Review

If the title hadn’t given it away, then yes, Ninja TD is a tower defence game with ninjas. Players must stop the incoming evil forces by placing different ninjas and utilizing different magic spells.

geoDefense Swarm Review

geoDefense Swarm Review

Much like its predecessor, geoDefense Swarm by Critical Thought Games is not an easy game to master, but manages to remain a fun and visually exciting game that deserves its place amongst the best in the considerably well filled tower defense genre. The addition of open field tower defense gameplay required some changes from the original geoDefense and what was once a fairly free-form placement of towers is now locked in to a hexagonal grid. Placement is fairly easy with a cross-hair…

ZoMbiE ciTy - ePIsoDe 2.1: HaLLowEEn in PANIC! Review

Review Retarded Arts By Damian Chiappara, 5 years, 1 month ago
ZoMbiE ciTy - ePIsoDe 2.1: HaLLowEEn in PANIC! Review

Zombie City is a tower defence type shooter where players must defend their base from waves of zombie attacks. You also earn cash by killing zombies, allowing you to repair your base walls, buy grenades or buy new weapons. The controls are simple. Flick the screen in the opposite direction you want to shoot. This makes some sense since your first and major weapon in the game is a bow and arrow. However, this means that you are constantly flicking and after a while can get quite tireso…

TriDefense Review

Review Kalio Ltda. By Andrew Nesvadba, 5 years, 2 months ago
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…

Or an auto-fire control scheme can be selected from the options menu, where players tap the area the…

StickWars Review

Review John E. Hartzog By Dave Flodine, 5 years, 3 months ago
StickWars Review

It's always good to see independent developers creating games for the iPhone. StickWars is the effort of John E Hartzog and is a tower defense game involving stick figures. You have a wall which you can repair and fortify with more health. Little stick figures with weapons keep sieging this wall, and it's your job to dispose of them. Control works very well. To remove the stick figures, you simply use your finger to flick them up into the air, allowing gravity to take its course on th…

Geo-Defense is a game that certainly tests your tower defense skills.  Having to strategically place blasters, laser cannons and other weapons to prevent hoards of creeps destroying your headquarters.
