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

Customer Reviews

Used to be excellent, keep working on it on5

Reason for one star, but I do acknowledge it has been taken over by a new developer. Multiplayer will not work, says I'm online but no other players found. New update says fee for traveling between continents is gone, well as far as my game goes I was never charged. Clicking on the electric tower to upgrade the left side of the screen starts to stretch out from the bottom. After the new update, which for about a week kept on appearing as a new update in App Store every couple of days. I removed and reinstalled the game thinking I will be able to play multiplayer but no, and I've lost all my progress. Played the game for years. Not a happy bunny 😕 This game has so much potential, shame it is riddled with bugs. Would give more stars because I can play career and it is fun, so please try if not just for career mode.
