Customer Reviews

Average TD game

Too bad that developer has abandoned this game because with some work it could be a really great game. As it is now, it's a fairly standard tower defense game with a few interesting wrinkles. As an experienced TD player, I found it only moderately challenging. Changes that would make it a great game are: first, there need to be more waves. The maps are big and open with lots of room to build big complicated defenses, but the waves are over before you really get started. Second, the multiplayer mode is great, but there are very few players to play with and its too hard to find them. Finally, there are 60 maps and while there are enough differences to keep them interesting, they really don't increase in difficulty. Therefore, once you have upgraded towers they all play pretty easily.

Multiplayer needs an update

And I mean it really needs it. Instead of going on certain maps and looking for other players, you should have a multiplayer button in the upper right hand corner. People click that and it pairs them with a certain number of people. Then everyone in the group votes on a map and game mode. This would be SO MUCH EASIER than going into different maps, hoping that there are others who want to play that PARTICULAR map in that PARTICULAR game mode. Then you wait ten flipping minutes just to be told that there are only two other people interested in doing that, and the map needs five in order to run.
I will change my rating to five stars (because I really think this game deserves it) when you have fixed that god-awful multiplayer.


This is a pretty fun game. I like how there are plenty of levels throughout the game, so you never get bored. Not only are there plenty of levels, but also different types of battles. In these battles you can battle the computer, but my favorite is definitely battling friends online. Upgrading your guns to show who is better was a creative addition to the game. The only part I do not like about the game was how the robots are shooting at what they call earthlings. Attacks come from the sky and ground but think they should also add in attacks that come from the water.
