Customer Reviews


If you haven't played the desktop version of this classic tower defense game, you are in for a treat with this faithful port to mobile. Easy to learn with only 4 choices of tower to build, but the upgrade tree for each of them creates a very deep level of strategy. Getting the right mix to start and wise use of gold is the key to surviving the 20 increasingly brutal waves of enemies. You will restart a mission several times before you learn what you need to know to get that 3 star victory. Just challenging enough to keep you playing, with colorful animations and fast load times, you will get hours of free entertainment with this game.

Lots of content for a free game

I was craving some tower defense game like I used to play as custom maps for Warcraft 3. This was close enough. Tons of unique map with different mazes and enemy types. You have to build towers in predefined spaces along the paths so it makes a lot of difference to place which tower, where. The hero enhances your defense but is somewhat supplemental. Upgrades lead to some unique abilities for every type of tower. Lots of game play styles seemed to work. I played this game for weeks to finish all the maps and earning enough stars to get all the upgrades.

I bought a hero as I felt this company earned a reward for this free game, although I found the "legendary" hero I bought not that much better than the stock free ones, so buy at your own risk.

I had no problems pausing the game and leaving to do other things on my phone and it always worked. Only if I left it paused overnight while charging did I lose game state for me.

Great stuff!

Great TD Game!

I absolutely love this game! And I have and will continue to recommend it to friends and family. It is in my opinion the best TD game I have played in as long as I can remember. I highly recommend getting this one first since it is free just to see if you will like this type of TD game. Then get "Frontiers"($2.99). That's what I did and love them Both!! What I love the most is you don't have to pay additional real world $$$ to complete the game. Their are heroes you can buy, but not necessary. The stock heroes are Good for game completion. Once again Great Game! Get it! If you don't like it, hey it was Free!!
