With groundbreaking online multiplayer, drop-dead gorgeous visuals, challenging and addictive gameplay, a huge amount of upgrades and outrageous weapons, Spice Bandits is the next evolution in Tower Defense.

Press Quotes
"’s one of the most fun, polished and addictive games on the App Store." — God is a Geek, 10/10

"...a fantastic game to play. It looks the business, has a premise that’s darkly ironic, and it’s glowing proof that the genre still has room to grow." — PocketGamer, 8/10

"...probably the best tower defense game I've ever played." — iMore

"’s practically full-to-bursting with content." — 148Apps, 4.5/5

"...funny, addictive and a great pick up and play game." — App-Score, 9/10.

Guard your ship as you mine for the precious Spice in each of the 55 levels, spread across 5 different environments, from jungle to arctic tundra. Use your mined resource to purchase new weapons, upgrades and more. Don’t worry

Spice Bandits features a multiplayer mode like no other tower defense game has to offer. Play in all-out war with 8 player online battles! Tactics, strategy, skill (and a little luck) will determine the victor.

Destroy the attacking force with your advanced alien weaponry. Choose from six tower classes and bolster your defenses with 54 (yes 54) different upgrades!

You are sure to fall in love with the comical little Spice hoarding aliens as they attempt to take over the world. Look out for some hidden easter eggs on the world map too. Tower defense has never had this much character!

What's New in Version 1.26

Dear Friends,

We continue updating the game, fixing the issues and improving.

In this release we completely removed the spice requirement when traveling between South America and Africa!
We also fixed a number of issues related to multiplayer experience, and other bugs.

Oh, and now you can earn free spice for watching sponsored video ads.

Customer Reviews

6 years later, still fantastic!

This is one of the first games I downloaded when I got my first iPhone ever (4s). I've played other tower defense games in the past and loved them, but this one...this one had something special about it. I spent hours playing this game, several times a week. I eventually stopped and forgot about this game over time :(... Fast forward to 6 years later I'm using my iPhone (6s plus), I'm in need of a fun game to play but can't find anything worthy. I decide to check out my app history and I dug as deep as I could. I found my old friend "spice bandits"! I downloaded the game thinking "6 years, it's probably not updated and won't work" but then it loaded up and there was my saved progress! I've now been playing for about an hour and I decide to check to see the update history,...July 2017! I have fallen back in love with this game and the developers! Thank you for keeping this game alive! I will never delete this from my phone again. Keep up the good work! I would love to see this game come to pc, steam maybe???...
