Excellent Concept, Although Balancing Is An Issue

Color defense is an awesome new take to the classic tower defense genre of games. It’s simplistic and retrograde design focuses the player on pure strategy in order to defend your space. I was gripped onto this game for hours on end (no joke) as I was determined to complete mission after mission—that is, until I reached the 3rd level on the non-tutorial mission. In my experience playing other tower defense type games, this one seems to require the usage of all tower variants including the “nanites” which are a form of in-game currency in order to advance your towers quickly. My only concern is that upon exhausting every last strategy and tower combination, I simply could not beat even the third level without having to slave away at advertisements to obtain “nanites” to bomb my frustrations away. It is well worth noting that the game’s preset difficult is “HARD”. I remember seeing in a previous review that the game is meant to be played on “HARD”, but in my opinion that difficulty is way too unbalanced to be able to play purely by strategy.

I may not be the best tower defense player out there, but 4 cumulative hours on the same level trying combination after combination of towers speaks a number on something.

All-In-All, an excellent game with an excellent take on a classic—but balancing is a major thing in order to have the game at the right challenge level.

Developer Response

Thank you for your comment and feedback! Much appreciated! Great you like the game. I have put your feedback to our list of features we are talking about. The balancing for some of the levels was hard to make for some of the later ones in hard mode. We currently think about redoing some which will make some of the players angry OR continue to add more new levels so there is a wider range of levels with levels for everyone to choose from later down the road.
We also have plans to improve the game with new modes in future updates. First we will add new worlds and levels.

Challenging but enjoyable

This is a great game, one I highly recommend. On hard mode, it is extremely difficult; I recommend players start on easy or medium. The game does require creative thinking which must often change with each level, but the basic mechanics are easily learned. I have now replayed every level numerous times and still enjoy them — although I am still looking forward to new levels.

I do have a few minor frustrations with mechanics. It is easy to misclick, and drop a unit in the wrong place. It is easy to intend to upgrade and instead pick up an unwanted unit. This is especially true when rushing against the time constraints of completing tasks when needed. A simple “undo” button (with a 3 or 5 second time limit) could prevent many restarts.

I also want to commend the developers for their graceful use of ads which help provide rebound without destroying the enjoyment of the game. My biggest complaint about the game, however, is something likely beyond the control of the developers. Perhaps I am old fashioned, but there is one ad that frequently runs that I find very objectionable — especially for younger children for whom the game is otherwise well suited. (It is for some sort of video chat, but to me promotes voyeurism and sexually explicit behaviors.)

Thank you for your feedback and comment! Much appreciated!
Please note we are planning to add the undo with a future update. But first we will add more content and new modes, like a random map feature.
Regarding the ads we decided to use admob because it is a safe ad network. We will look into this.

Great Game

When I first got this game and started playing through some of the tutorial levels, I was impressed with the easy mechanics and the design aesthetic. About halfway through the tutorial levels, I started to think the difficulty was ramping up a little too steeply. I continued playing until 3 levels through the first non-tutorial world before I realized that the default difficulty is the hardest mode. Once changed to medium, this game is much more enjoyable. This setting should be made more readily apparent from the get go.

I do have some minor issues with the controls on my iPhone X. Quite often, when I go to grab a defender to place, I inadvertently end up closing the app as I drag the defender from the supply bar upwards. When I open the app back up, my unit is uselessly placed right above the supply bar rather than where I intended to put it. I'm sure this will be fixed in future updates, and it wouldn't effect the game on any other devices.

Overall, this is a fresh, minimalist take on tower defense that I'm really enjoying so far!

Developer Response

Thank you for your feedback! Great to know you like COLOR DEFENSE! Please note the game is meant to be played on "hard" mode. That's why we have this mode as the default setting. I put your feedback on our todo list.

The next update to version 1.2 soon will bring new sound settings and levels.
