Castle Defense Takes a Turn for the Fantastic: Fantasy Defense Launches

Seoul, Korea – Playbean brings Fantasy Defense, an addictive fusion of castle defense, RPG, and action genres, to iOS. Fantasy Defense presents gamers with a finely crafted tower defense game further enhanced by elements more commonly found in role playing games, along with a surprising amount of player control over combat scenarios.

In the world of Fantasy Defense, the player must protect the gateway of his own fortress – that of the human army – against onrushing waves of monstrous creatures. These creatures, which cover a broad spectrum of mythological monsters, are harbingers of the Wraith King. This previously imprisoned arch-enemy of the human race has broken free, and it is up to the player’s heroes and their fighting force to take a stand.

Fantasy Defense will appeal immediately to fans of tower defense games, providing the traditional and seemingly simple task of warding off foes. But unlike many of its iOS counterparts, Fantasy Defense provides players with a greater tactical challenge than matching muscle for muscle. Instead, players must calculate the most effective placement for their own impressive variety of heroes, warriors, mages, and archers, as well as manage resources and upgrades. Players will use touch controls to direct the attention of individual fighters to areas of vulnerability, giving the game a face-paced action genre appeal.

Fantasy Defense reaches a perfect balance between tactical challenge and casual time-killer, and its well-executed pacing and attention to detail will ensure its popularity:

5 Enchanting, Terrifying Environments:
* Bring order to chaos in the forest of darkness, fiery volcano, devil’s dungeon, infinite wilderness and the infamous swamp of desire!

A Vast World With 50 Stages:
* Hours of game play are guaranteed! Each of the five environments offers ten challenging stages to conquer.

Freebie Alert: geoDefense Swarm now free for a day

geoDefense Swarm (TMA Review), the follow up to the critically acclaimed TD game geoDefense (TMA Review) — one which I still consider a favourite of mine in the genre — has dropped in price to free for a limited time. Packed with challenging levels and eye candy visuals, Swarm will certainly keep you glued to your iDevice for quite sometime. Here’s a blurb from our review:

In short, geoDefense Swarm is a treat. It combines the best of the classic tried and tested geoDefense goodness and the deep strategy of Open Field TD games. The stylish graphics are like visual candy and the performance is excellent, even on a 2G/3G iPhone. I would definitely say that the sequel of geoDefense has not shamed it’s original one bit and is a must have for any fan of the genre.

If you remotely enjoy tower defense games and have yet to play geoDefense Swarm, do yourself a favour and grab it while it’s free.

Drake’s Tower in Review – There Can Be Only One

Tower defense games have become synonymous with winding paths full of bad guys, protective offensive structures that can be upgraded, and more recently, guiding heroes that have a trick or two up their sleeves.  Drake’s Tower takes the genre back to the basics, giving you one tower to control and upgrade to the hilt as you protect your little piece of land against wave after wave of zombie invaders.  The fact that your playing area is so limited in scope gets a bit tedious at times, but once you start getting into some heavy action you’ll forget about that.  Not being a huge fan of the TD genre, I’m finding Drake’s Tower to be a refreshing deviation from the norm.

KillingZone Defense in Review – No plants, lots of zombies, ammo required…

About a year ago, Plants vs. Zombies (TMA Review) made its way onto the App Store with much fanfare and it was highly acclaimed across the board by both critics and the general public. With its mind-boggling success, it was only a matter of time that look-alikes would popup.  If anything, I’m a bit surprised that it took as long as it did. Nevertheless, regardless of how KillingZone Defense may resemble PopCap’s famous twist on the tower defense genre at first glance, it turns out to be a rather different game altogether.
