rockifone.com, the developer of one of my favourite Tower Defense games, BattleZone, (formerly known as BattleField) and the recently reviewed Dragon Slaughter have decided to make this Christmas special for fans of genre. They just released the abovementioned games and Garden War bundled together for a measly sum of $0.99. And with the promise of adding more free titles in future updates, I don’t know about you, but for me it’s a must have!
Description after the break.
Ok folks, I know you are probably sick and tired of hearing this from me, but the Tower Defence genre has been a bit stale lately. And even the appearances of recent titles like TriDefense and geoDefense Swarm have done little to change that, with things being more of a quantitive than a qualitative difference from the older representatives of the genre. Well, this may finally have changed. Rockiphone, the developers of Battlefield, an open-field TD with a rather interesting and different upgrade path, have gone out and put together another TD game called Dragon Slaughter Episode 1.
Love tower defence? Well then, today’s your lucky day! If you hurry, you can get a couple of good TD games absolutely free! And our lucky winners are… (after the gap)
Hola folks! As I wrote in a recent review of Dead Panic, the Tower Defence genre is in serious need of fresh blood, and nobody seems to know the direction to go. One of the most promising directions is “open maps” where the enemies come at you from all directions and you decide where to build your towers stop them. I think the first really good game that featured this type of game-play was the legendary Fieldrunners. Well, TriDefense follows the same general idea but features modifiable terrain and land, air and water(!) based enemies. So, let’s dissect it (I’m out for blood!) and see whether it as good as it sounds.
Hola, folks! The Tower Defence genre has been a bit stale lately. Despite the constant appearance of new titles, there have not been any really fresh ideas for some time now. Or have there? Independent developer Sean Maher’s mont-old Dead Panic is a cross between the Hero and Tower defence genres that has been shouldering the burden of expectation. But is it what we’ve been waiting for?

As has been mentioned before, Tower Defence is a crowded genre at the App Store – very crowded – and full of great games. When ngmoco announced Star Defense, a true-3D TD game to hit App Store shelves around June, an almost audible groan could be heard from many gaming fans who have tasted the best already and are wanting something different for dessert. Well, Star Defense is not just another TD, it is another TD that has enough new gameplay to warrant a new genre.

It’s practically a right of passage for anyone that has ever owned a computer (unless you’re so cool that you’ve only ever had a Mac). One day you start to notice that your computer is running a lot slower than it used to. No matter how few programs you’re running, or how much disk space you free up, you swear there’s something going on in the computer. Oh yeah, the constant porn pop-ups are also a sign that something is definitely not right. So you download, buy, steal, or otherwise acquire an antivirus program, install it, and let it work its magic… but what exactly is it doing? The developers at Sector3 have an idea of what’s going on in there, and they made it into a game: Circuit Defenders.
