This is a classic tower defense game that copies significant features from Defense Grid: The Awakening. There are numerous uncanny similarities. That being said, there are many worse formulas to copy than Defense Grid, and I highly recommend this game as well as an excellent entry in the Tower Defense genre (but play Defense Grid first). It doesn't do a lot to differentiate itself, but it executes well on the basic Tower Defense tropes... tower building and placement, tower synergies, etc.

The campaign is relatively short, but there are numerous ways to replay the same levels giving it longer legs than it would otherwise have.

It is a solid tower defense game that deserves attention. That being said, if you're only going to play one Tower Defense game, it should still be Defense Grid.

A vivid top down shooter that puts hit such as Hotline Miami and Dragon Blood to shame.

This is a classic tower defense game and while it's entertaining there are some better choices. That said, if you've played Orc's must die and finished up Sanctum. You might enjoy this one.

It has several levels where you basically make towers and use abilities from the fleet to help supplement them. It can be a challenge but it's not impossible and there are plenty of achievements to be had. I really wish I could've given the multiplayer a try before writing this but unfortunately the game seems mostly dead as of 2014 in terms of an online following with the internet lobby being completely bare so buy this keeping in mind that it's only going to be a solo experience unless you grab a friend to buy it with you.

All that said, there isn't too much that sets it apart from other tower defense games. I enjoy it, but don't expect anything revolutionary.

Sol Survivor is one of my top favorite tower defence games (defence grid is my 2nd fav), Sol doesn't really have much of a story to it but it makes up for it with it's sheer number of tower types and possible tower combinations which is in the 1000's.

It has a good multiplayer system with modes like co-op survival and head to head wars and has quite a large number of maps to play them on and in a recent update a level creater was released.

If you enjoy tower defence games Sol Survivor is one you definitely need to get!
