appadvice: "geoDefense Swarm is a stunning visual masterpiece!"

GamePro: 5/5 Stars "Can Swarm live up to the family name? You bet it can...Buy this game today."

panapticon: "100/100 — Quite simply a perfect iPhone game!" - 8.2 "Impressive" - "geoDefense Swarm is a must own game..." - "geoDefense is one of the best tower defense games, and Swarm is even better, maybe the best in the App Store!"

geoDefense Swarm takes all the dizzying visuals, vexing challenges and addictive gameplay from the original, and changes the equation – instead of defeating creeps along a pre-defined path, geoDefense Swarm challenges you to use your creativity, building mazes for the creeps to navigate across obstacle-laden open levels.


- Beautiful high resolution Retina graphics on the iPhone 4
- Classic 'Open Field' Tower Defense Gameplay
- 10 Levels, Each With its Own Unique Challenges
- geoDefense Swarm is OpenFeint Enabled - Featuring Online Leaderboards

As much strategy as Rock Band

In that you can't just randomly poke at it and expect anything to happen. Aside from that, it's more puzzle than strategy. The number of viable maps (and repetition of the first five waves) make it feel more like trying to guess the "solution" to combination lock. 0-0-0. No? OK, 0-0-1. No? Repeat as infinitum.
On the other hand, you don't have to worry about remembering prices of towers and upgrades, because they change with every. single. level.
Oh, and misplace a single tower in the first 5-ish waves and you might as well restart, cos there is't a penny to spare.
There are randomly tiles that have special meaning, and you won't get any explanation on what they mean. Not even on the developer's page for the game.
But hey, it IS addictive! Like cigarettes!

please fix!

As others have said, the paid version stopped working with the release of iOS 10, and it disappeared from the app store 😞 please fix! best game ever, and despite *years* between updates, well worth the money.

Loved this! Please update!

I loved Swarm and Geodefense! I upgraded from iPhone 5 to iPhone 7 and :-( both stopped working. Is it the OS or the hardware? Would gladly repurchase to get them working again.
