About the Game

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.

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.

+/+ 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.

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$

Bought on release due to my love of tower defense.
Very bland.
Iphone port probably doesn't help the complexity.
3/10

Don't buy even if you like tower defense.
