Sobre este jogo

Defense Technica is the next evolution in hardcore tower defense strategy games. Protect the core from an onslaught of unrelenting biomechanical terrors with a powerful range of tower defense units – each with their own upgradable features and methods of attacks. Engage the opposition in a variety of maps and prepare to rapidly shift tactics as weather, enemy paths, and even the terrain itself physically changes upending the flow of the battlefield. Presented through sharp 3D visuals and backed by a soaring soundtrack, Defense Technica is the ultimate in strategic tower defense!

Key Features


Powerful Towers – Select from 8 different tower classes and upgrade to build a nearly impenetrable defense of over 40 different towers. Arm towers with machine guns, long-range missiles, flamethrowers, mortars, lasers, and other powerful weapons to halt the oncoming hordes in their tracks!

Dynamic Battlefields – Variable enemy pathfinding, arduous weather systems, and physical changes in terrain during battles require a shift in strategy and keep each playthrough fresh.

Gorgeous 3D Visuals – Fully 3D backgrounds and amazing lighting effects set the scene for intricately detailed towers and enemy hordes. Maps range from orbital military installations and subterranean ruins to floating islands and futuristic cities.

Formidable Opposition – Battle against nine different enemy types across three different classes each with a strength and weakness against certain tower types requiring careful thought on tower placement.

Defense Technica is Defense Grid, but with less polish. Everything about it is directly from Defense Grid. The art style, the interface, the icons. Everything. This is like the shameless copy-catting you see on iOS, where they try to confuse the customer into buying the wrong game. This isn't totally broken and useless, but why pay $15 for this shameless thing, when you can pay $10 or less for the actual Defense Grid?

It's impressive in how many ways they miss the mark of what makes for an enjoyable tower defense game. There's little introduction or explanation to gameplay concepts. For example, the 4th level introduces its first weather effect, except it doesn't really tell you when this is happening, or what its effect is. You have to go out of your way to find such simple things.
You know what other amazing feature it possesses? Enemies drop a cube of additional resources upon death, which you are required to hover your mouse over to collect. Maps become several screens large even from the first level, so if you create a few killzones, you have to constantly cycle between them to scavenge your rewards. It's kind of ludicrous in a terrible way, honestly.

I would best describe Defense Technica as a half-hearted mash-up of Defense Grid (in look, feel, and mechanisms [you quickly acquire what is essentially the orbital laser, towers pop out of the ground in little boxes, etc]) and Kingdom Rush (towers are limited, but gain upgrade paths). Maybe somewhere in there is a kernal of a good idea, but it's not easily accessable, and it's hugely unpolished.

Sadly, this is a purchase I regret.

This game has some awful level design. They just tried to be way too cute with the design. It's not a strategy game if there's ONLY ONE WAY to beat a level. Strategy games are fun when you can think your way through it, and after playing the same level for a half hour I finally had to cut my losses. Uninstalled after 3 hours and like 10 levels.

This game is actually pretty great so long as you let go of your expectations of what a tower defense should be.

There is no pause, but this is to emphasize the tension of racing to get towers built in time. It is kind of charming in an old-school way when you fail because you weren't fast enough.

The first night I played this I got frustrated around level 9, but after thinking about and going back to it the next day I beat the level solidly.

After beating the game, I even went back and beat all the levels on hard difficulty and without juggling. So the game doesn't require juggling to beat.

You MUST pay attention to what the towers are strong and weak againt. Having a good variety of towers and upgrading a tower to transform it to be strong against the next wave helps immensely.

For half-off or even 75% off as I've seen this game for now it is a good buy.

A simple tower defence game. It seems to be a blatant copy of Defence Grid: Awakening, but without many of it's good points.
Do not buy this if you like tower defence, buy Defence Grid instead.

This game starts slow, (More y you compare it with other games)
But it builds up and grows on you, (If you keep playing)
Then you realize the best stuff is saved for later... (Then you love the game)
An when you realize how difficult... or , let´s say "Complex" it becomes with level design,
you don't know if that's unfair or simply an Excellent challenge.

To all the reviewers with a thumb down, I would say it's fair to do that if they have been playing Defense Grid, but when you find the time to solve the complex levels of Defense Technica... it becomes a VERY rewarding experience.

I recommend it if you love to start a level over and over and over until you get those 3 Gold stars for a perfect score ;)

(p.s. I play a lot off-line so my playtime is not correct, I have more than 40 hours)

Basically a more puzzle style Defense Grid. The tower defense mechanics are fantastic and the maps are very diverse and dynamic, though the story is a bit lacking. If you enjoyed DG, you'll likely enjoy this. It's very challenging to get 3 gold stars - but there are many options to deal with the aliens if you're not worried about getting a perfect 100%

Minha análise em: www.escaperope.pt/2013/11/defense-technica

2,5 em 5

Não pretendendo troçar de ninguém, mas parece-me que chamar “Defense Technica” a um Tower Defense é como chamar “Score Goals Tactica” a um simulador de futebol. Eu perceberia a falta de inspiração do título se estivéssemos a falar de um jogo em flash lançado num site de casual games de segunda categoria, mas estamos a falar da Devolver Digital que é responsável pela publicação de, nomeando sucessos recentes, Shadow Warrior e Hotline Miami.
Como se não bastasse o fraco título, o enredo é pouco interessante e é apresentado através de vários quilos de texto, sem narração e sem animações, como se fazia no tempo em que os recursos não permitiam melhor que isso.A banda sonora é pobre, amadora e absolutamente genérica. E é então que chegamos ao jogo propriamente dito.

Graficamente nada é especialmente atraente nem funcional. Do ponto de vista meramente estético, a sensação com que se fica é de que tudo é mais ou menos igual, incluindo inimigos, torres e cenários, e que a paleta de cores é muito pouco variada. Do ponto de vista funcional também há problemas: a câmara está tão próxima que não vemos os diferentes caminhos por onde vêm os inimigos, e a falta de clareza dos percursos pode surpreender e jogar contra nós.
A jogabilidade, para ser coerente com a falta de qualidade do restante, também tem problemas: não há informação em tempo real sobre as características dos inimigos, os controlos não são eficazes nem intuitivos, a necessidade de estar constantemente a navegar pelo mapa (devido à proximidade excessiva da câmara) torna as acções ainda mais lentas. Surpreendentemente, o nível de dificuldade está ajustado e o modo de jogo hardcore torna a experiência mais interessante. Apesar de todos os defeitos, Defense Technica respeita a evolução do género, pois integra os componentes habituais como a possibilidade de actualizar as torres, tornando-as mais fortes, e de utilizar recursos como ataques aéreos – talvez por isso se salve de ser um perfeito desastre.
Feito o somatório, diria que Defense Technica é sobretudo para quem ama o género tower defense, mas não deixa de ser um jogo medíocre e incapaz de satisfazer um público abrangente.

This game tries to imitate Defense Grid (which is the best tower defense I've ever played), but contains a lot of failures :
- There are no checkpoints ... and some levels last 30 minutes, it's horrible!
- There is no pause either. (you can't freeze time and put some turrets)
- You can speed up the time (x2), but if you do that the turrets will be less effective!
- There is no minimap and you can't zoom-out to see the whole map.
- You can't change the targeting priority of your turrets.
- The interface is failed ! It was designed to play with a controller, which is cool for people playing on consoles, but isn't effective with a mouse and a keyboard.
- The first half of the campaign is boring : no difficulty, no mazing, no original turrets. Fortunately, in the second half, you gain acces to more interesting turrets, you can start mazing and levels become challenging.
- There is no other game modes, just the campaign.

The level transformation idea is interesting, though it isn't used a lot. The graphics are good and I like the mecha-style of the turrets.

The game isn't entirely bad, but it contains a lot of frustrating things. Buy it only on big sale, prefer Defense Grid or Defenders Quest.

If you blantly had to copy Defense Grid why not the superior UI as well. The interaction is clunky at best. This thing just plays like a chore. It's quite unbelieveable how one could screw up such a simple game with that much of potential.

Pretty disappointed, I had high hopes for this. It's kind of like a dumbed-down Defense Grid. The controls are odd (I kept deleting my towers by accident), you can't pause the game to consider strategy, and the game has no personality. I think it was based on an iOS game. What I've head of the soundtrack is pretty good, though, and you do get that with it at least. Again, it's not BAD, it's just very simple and bland after playing games like Defenders Quest and Defense Grid. Hard to recommend :/

Defense Technica (19/50) - Just Bad
by Yiasmat


Even tho i´m a huge fan of the genre, i still can´t convince myself to recommend this game to anyone. If you are looking for a nice TD, just go for anotherone, there are so many good TD´s out there (Defense Grid for example).

Graphics (4/10):
Not really that impressive. Considering this is a PC version, it has crappy animations, the framerate is just taken over from the android version and overall it could have been much better.

Design (2/10):
As this is a TD, especially the leveldesign. It´s just.... aweful. They tried to copy what DG did right, a mix between maze and standart. I hope you already know: they failed. The first levels are actually ok, but as they get bigger comes a confusing layout. That doesn´t change with the "blockers" standing on each map (things the enemies will stop at and attack till it´s gone).
For the overall design: The enemies are nicely diversified which doesn´t count for the towers. If a tower is level 1 or 2, you will not see it.

Gameplay (7/20):
You can upgrade your towers, so thats a plus. But what else? You always have to place your towers on the exact spot it was supposed to stand in order to block the enemies path. How strategy is that. After the first level, the fun is just gone. It gets repetitiv really quick as you don´t get any new useful stuff. The real killer are the blockers tho. Having to build towers which you than have to sell later is just stupid.
You also don´t need to adjust any towers to the enemies spawing as they nearly all do the same thing.

Controls (4/5):
Works overall. Sometimes the camera pans a bit strange but thats ok. Annoying is the zoom tho. You will never use it. You don´t need to, but it´s really bad.

Innovation (2/5):
Copies DG, every tower has already been seen in other games and there are no new enemy types to speak of.
Tho you have a upgrade system of each tower and the blockers are (even tho really bad) new as well.

Perfect example of why steam needs better quality control.

This has all the depth of one of those F2P tower defence Iphone apps.

The best thing this game actually does is defining the standard for 'crappy tower defence'.

Avoid unless youre trapped in an airport for a week and you've already successfully washed all the windows and checked all the seats for pennies.

Optimal Price: <1$

+/+ Upgradable tower tech trees with two branches.
+/+ Solid music.

+/- Solid but average mechanics.
+/- Includes all the usual towers, but the selection feels limited.
+/- Varying quality of level design (21 campaign levels).
+/- Mediocre sound effects.

-/- No endless mode or other good options for replay.
-/- Not very difficult and few viable strategies to success.
-/- Very bland graphics and animation.
-/- Boring story (not a big deal for a TD game).
-/- Controls not optimized for PC
-/- Missing key TD features such as a true fast forward (beyond 2x) or pause.

Verdict: 5/10. Pass.

Decided to grab this while waiting for Defense Grid 2 and while it looks like Defense Grid it it lacks a huge amount of depth the game had, the game is playable and enjoyable enough that I played all the way through but almost everything is copied from DG.

Set pieces are copy paste including almost all art assets, the upgrade system even down to the colours and the music.

It's dissapointing that a developer with enough money to put some effort into a PC TD decided to waste it in copying another game.

Unless you have played Defense Grid to death then don't play this, if you're hardcore into TD then wait until it's cheap then grab it.

If this doesn't feel like a real review it's because it's not,anything I write about the game feels like I'm reviewing DG.

I was hoping Defense Technica was going to rival one of my top rated TD games Defense Grid: The Awakening, for playability; unfortnately it didn't, but it certainly helped me to scratch the itch I get when I see a new TD release. Tower Defense games are one of my favorite arcade/indie genres. I'm quite pleased with this one even if it doesn't offer up anything new apart from the crystals that enable you to occassionally reveal the most optimal placement of turrets or the luck based card system that offer enduring bonuses such as reduced build costs. Sadly these crystals take an age to save enough to use effectively.

If you're new to TD games, I'd give this one a miss at least until its on sale as it can be quite hard to win once you've passed the first several levels. I'd score it an average 6.5 out of 10

The Good:
+ different variety towers each with its own upgrade skill tree
+ 22 unique levels, some levels provide mazing, others do not
+ Some levels can transform mid play offering unique expereince in the game
+ Good graphics for a tower defense game
+2 levels of difficulty
+Controller Support

The Bad:
- Doesn't really do anything new that hasn't been done already, its about as standard as it gets (except for level transformation)
- Most levels (especially if you play on harder diffuculty) usually have one solution to complete it perfectly. This to me is the single biggest negative against the game. If your not going for a perfect run than this shouldn't really matter.
-Game seems to be optimized around controller support. You can use mouse and/or keyboard however the controller seems to be the best way to play.

If your looking for a fun little tower defense game, this could be the game for you
