They Came From The Deep

By Birmingham City University

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


They Came From The Deep is a hilarious beach defence game set in a 1950’s B-Movie. Use defenses made from familiar beach and seaside items; from water guns to sandcastles, to protect the beach from ravenous hordes of sea monsters who have been horrifically transformed by a toxic chemical spill in the ocean....

Search for pirate gold and washed up treasure to fund your seaside defenses, and build sandcastle fortifications to hold back the mutants.

Battle waves of Sea Mutants made of different enemies with individual strengths and weaknesses.

iPod Touch, iPhone 3G and iPhone 4 (including retina graphics) combatable.

Great fun

A really addictive game! I had so much fun plotting where to place cannons and barricades. Simple, yet very effective

The designs of the characters were wonderful, as were the increasingly difficult swarms of enemies to defeat keeping you on your toes. The music was good too. Certainly kept me entertained for a while.

I just wish it were longer!


Very addictive but having issues. After successful completion of the second level after the big slug/snail joins... Game freezes and re-starts from beginning? Is it just me?

Most fun and playful tower defence game I've played on Iphone

Great character design, great funny music, playful and imaginative game scenario best tower defence game I've played in ages and it's free!
