I didn't really care for the first Fieldrunners game, but the developers tweaked, streamlined and improved the game. I am really happy with the improvements. Its not just the same map with a different background. There is an actual campaign instead of just unlocking maps. The game does a really good job of instructing you and easing you into the game without forcing tutorial levels on you. The graphics and animations are also a lot better than the original game. The fun facts / tips make the game feel more alive. There are now items to use and you can pick your own towers that you'll be able to use.

Fieldrunners 2 is a very simple and shallow tower defense game with a cartoon look. The game consists of a campaign of several unique maps. You start with a certain amount of cash to buy your towers. You can place these towers anywhere, well almost anywhere. The enemies don't attack, they just run from their starting gate or gates all the way to your base. The game says your base, by base, I assume they mean your gate, because you don't see a base. These are basically open courtyards. If enough enemies get into your base, you'll lose the game. The limit is 20. I am very happy the game maps don't force you to do 100 waves, instead its 20, 30, 40 and so on waves. It makes the game feel much less of a chore when you can breeze through levels. There are other objectives too, like defeat X number of runners within Y time. The maps are really beautiful with a great art style. Far better and more diverse than the original game.

You're tasked with arranging these towers, making walls of towers, and making a winding path for enemies to follow. Basically make a maze of towers. Can you plug a gap and make an unsolvable puzzle? Nope. The enemies will plod through from left to right. If something blocks their way, they'll path around it, but not intelligently. They'll chose a path that can end up having more of your towers. Some maps have paths already predetermined. There is a wide variety of enemies, standard soldiers, a heavier soldier, they'll eventually get jeeps, motorcycles, tanks, helicopters and giant robots. What do they all do? Just walk. Again they don't attack you. The helicopters and planes will at least fly over your towers in a straight line headed for your gates. There are now troop transports that when they explode, the troops come out and keep running. Your job is to destroy them before they enter your gate.

Now that we've covered the enemies, let's talk about the towers, there are a few types of towers based on what mode you're on. Before each map / level, you'll fill 6 tower slots with towers you've unlocked by buying them with coins you earn for beating levels. This was a great change from the previous game that forced you to have 4 or 6 specific towers. Gun towers with short range, goo towers, that have a longer range, but will shoot goo to temporarily slow enemies down, there are oil towers that do the same thing, but to multiple enemies and the effect doesn't last that long. Next up there are long range missiles, which are great to have, there are bomb spitters that I feel are too similar to missiles. There are new laser towers that don't have an attack radius, but rather can attack up, down, left, right in a line. You can upgrade each and every tower by right clicking it and selecting to upgrade it for a price. Do you want to know which towers do the most damage? The stats are in the help menu item, but they should be hover items that just appear when you go to select which tower you'd like to place. There are new usable items as well, things like air strikes and mines. They're a nice feature in the game. The tower guns turn, but the electro towers don't turn and you'll pay extra for it. You can hit the space bar to pause the game to plop down towers, but there are only two speeds, normal and fast.

The previous game had you type in your name for the high score, this game just uses your Steam name. There are 3 difficulties for every map / level and I think it just adds waves onto the difficulty instead of making the enemies more difficult. The achievements are more time consuming than they are difficult. Its pretty easy to get them, but you'll invest 2 hours for the first one, which is a far cry from the first game where you could achieve the first few within a few minutes of the game. I wouldn't bring up achievements if the game didn't have 50+ and the previous game had 90+.

Overall, its a great upgrade from Fieldrunners 1. Its worth a try, and it might feel more like a mobile game than a PC game, but its still a fun little game.

Great tower defense game. Not impossible, but very challenging. I got this game in the humble bundle, and am so pleased with the amount of platforms it is compatible with. I can play on my android phone, as well as my Surface Pro with touch screen controls working perfectly.

Fantasic time waster of a game, will keep you frustrated (in a good way).

It is different than most tower defense games for PC. Maybe that's why I find it so addictive. It is a HUGE improvement over the first Fieldrunners.

By far one of the worse tower defence games made.

Its obviously going for the mobile market and was never made for PC.

there are very few enemy types that come at you. They might look like the same enemy but they get harder as the match goes on.

The difficulty levels go from kindergarden to impossible.

It's intended to be beat on easy, then normal, then hard. you unlock turrets as you win matches. so the only way you can win harder matches is by using turrets you dont have.

Steam has better Tower defence games made for PC and not android/IOS

I'm a sucker for tower defense games. This is one of the better ones out there. My favorite part is the variety - some maps have you placing guns around a predetermined path, while others have big open playfields where you have to make your own mazes of guns. Each level has three difficulty levels, along with options like endless, time attack, and so on. So if you don't want to buy every td game out there, and just want one that has a little bit of everything, this is a decent choice.

This is a great game and a much needed upgrade from the first with better grahics and gameplay. The game also seems harder and I like the differnt kinds of maps. What I do not like but is the fact you can get more coins by liking there facebook and you see this at the end of every match. That just annoys me. Also I would love to see a death count for each turrret like in Balloon Tower Defense as it is handy to see what is not pulling its wait. Aside from that this game is great though you should play the first aswell.

Tower Defense is one of my favourite genre's and i bought this game about a week ago and have plowed 30 hours into it already. The problem is ive nearly 3 star every map and I still have alot of towers to unluck yet i fear within the next 5 or so hours play time i will have completed it, without much reason to return. The good side is that its a really good TD game, Ive enjoyed every frustrating minute! Just wish there was more.

Played on the pc version only.

This is pretty solid tower defense game. It can be very challenging at times almost frustratingly so. And the way you earn coins needs to be reworked because at the moment it takes a HUGE amount of time(aka grinding) to unlock anything.

But overall the game is very fun and it keeps you on your toes which is always good for a tower defense.
