Please note: somebody illegally uploaded this earlier - this is the official version!

Build and defend your Empire Island through the ages.

Build up your population to raise taxes.

Choose 30 different types of construction unit including several types of weapon, ranging from mud-ball towers and cannons through to advanced futuristic weapons such as lasers and missiles.

Place defences including mines, explosive balloons and tesla coils. Call upon powerful Acts of God, such as Lightning, Tsunamis and Firestorms.

Fend off ever more advanced enemies, starting from simple wooden boats, right up to alien invaders.

Upgrade almost everything! One of the most advanced physics-based strategy games available.

For those who are new to this game, here are a few tips:

* Clicking buttons is slow - tap [R] really fast to quickly repair all your damaged units

* Upgrading weapons makes them charge faster

* Fire Balloons and Mines are your friend - check out Part 6 of the video guide to see some effective use of them

* If you find you haven't got enough cash, then you haven't got enough Markets or Banks down. Build a lot of Population Units early then put down Markets and Banks as soon as possible

* At the end, the mother ship ufos keep coming until you finish off everything else

Imagine playing this game nowadays...

I love this game i did since 2011 it's so amazing that i'm lost for words
one of my top 5 fav tower defence games even tho i still didn't managed to beat it after 7 years of trying


you realize that since your rating is over 4.00 you can have game awards on ur game like i.e: "skytower" desc.:have and 12-story high building that is 6 blocks wide! somthing like that!

not balance,but very funny

w/o option mode; i want
planning 1 min each turn-->need more coz enermies r strong and we r weak.
extend era, normal players need time to get enough money
very awesome after all.

Good but stupid

Its a good game and i like the "age" thing.
However, not having any autofiring weapons is annoying.
Also, you put the "ages" wrong.
First of all, there is we are not using archers in a MODERN age.
And a POST modern age we do not use the propeller planes from the 40's.
And NOBODY build a house out of steel, use concrete.
Having an hard/easy mode would be good too.
I liked the music but after a while it gets annoying.
I would recommend different musics for different ages.
But it was pretty fun, so i give 8/10 5/5.

(I hope you read this too)
