Square Enix, best known for their role playing titles in Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, have jumped on the iPhone Tower Defense bandwagon and released a Defense title of their own. Crystal Defenders is unique in that rather than building defensive tower structures around a map, you deploy jobs found in the popular Final Fantasy Tactics A2 game(Nintendo DS). Available classes include Dragoons, Black Mages, Theives, Berserkers and plenty more to choose from. Fans of the Tactics series and any defense game may want to give this a go. Now available at the App Store for $7.99. A Lite version is also available for players to test out the first 20 waves from one of four beginners’ maps.

Crystal Defenders is a defensive strategy game in which players deploy popular jobs from FINAL FANTASY Tactics A2, such as Black Mages and Soldiers, to fend off encroaching enemy hordes and prevent them from stealing their party’s crystals.
Players can enjoy over 300 stages of action in one of three different game versions: W1, W2, and W3. In W1, players can learn game basics. In W2, the introduction of Power Crystals opens up new doors, allowing for deeper, more detailed strategies. Finally, the complex maps in W3 will challenge even the most seasoned players.
Simple touch panel-driven controls and up-tempo play make Crystal Defenders easily accessible whether at home or on the go!
