Overview: Traditional Tower Defense
+ Bright colorful graphics. Towers, enemies and special effects are unique, vibrant and can be easily distinguished from one another especially when a lot is happening on screen.
+ 25 levels spread across different game modes and 3 difficulty levels. Each map provides a different entry/exit points along with different obstacles/hazards that you can use to your advantage.
+ Multiple game modes: Survival is your traditional tower defense game. Time attack has you killing a certain amount of enemies before time runs out. Sudden Death pits you against a never ending massive wave of enemies, forcing you to kill a certain amount. Puzzle mode is a twist on the standard tower defense formula by changing some of the rules forcing you to think very carefully where you place towers on the map.
+28 different tower types, 23 different types of enemies and 5 rare elite enemies that randomly show up in certain maps. Each tower is unique and has its own strengths and weaknesses.
+The game has items that can be purchased with coins that you get by completing levels. These itmes are completely optional as every level can be completed on the hardest difficulty without them. The items are a good way to perfect your strategy and provide some help on some of the harder maps.
+ The achievements are much more bearable than its predecessor. Only a limited amount of achievements require grinding
+ Good difficulty balance
The game is an ios port and that may turn some people off. In order to get items and some of the new towers you first must purchase them with coins. Coins are collected after every map. These however are strictly optional and are not required to finish the game. In app purchases have been removed from this version and the cost of each item/tower is significantly reduced over the ios counterpart. You will gain a lot of coins simply by playing the game and I never felt the need to grind for coins other than for an achievement.
- Does very little to innovate the genre
This is a great tower defense game and makes some significant improvements over the first one. Anybody looking to get into the genre or is looking for a new game to play, this is a great game to check out just to expect anything new or exciting.
