There’s a new Tower Defense game, by same people who made the infamous Desktop Tower Defense that we linked to. It’s different from the original in several ways. There is only one path, and you build various towers along the edges of that path. And there are 10 different kinds of towers. Also, there are tokens, which can unlock more towers, and you can also do dares and double dares. A dare gives all creeps of that round 2X hit points, and the double dare gives them 4X hit points plus faster speed. You can get a lot of extra points if you pull that off. Also, there are “elements” on the screen, at the end of the path. If the creeps get to the end of the path, they will steal your elements, but they have to go back through your maze to escape. If they make it through, you lose that element (and the ability to build that kind of tower, until you buy it back). It sounds somewhat more complicated than before, and perhaps it is, but it’s still easy once you play a game.
The creeps make audible statements, but you can disable that under options. (I recommend it, because one group of them occasionally use words that aren’t good.) Also, the game can last a while (if you’re as good as me, anyway), so note that there is a fast-forward button which lasts through that round (although you can disable it before then).
In my first game, I got to Level 42 before losing an element, which I then bought back. But Level 50 will make you wonder, once it gets going… I beat the easy one (Wiggles) on my first try, getting 28,864. I realize that will be broken by some of you, but it was my first game, and I had to figure out what was going on. (And maybe I should’ve read the directions first.) My second game I got 38,340 (which will also be broken, I’m sure). On the 2nd map (which is harder difficulty), I got 24,153, to the 50th level.
