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

Aiming and recharge a problem

This game has a lot of potential, being vastly different then your average tower defense game. However it is just too hard to balance defense with money making. The markets and banks are just too expensive. Coupled with the fact that your towers shoot almost their entire load on their first shot and are then useless thereafter makes buying pop and markets a losing position because you need a million towers to maintain your defense. Expansion is also costly and just makes things harder to manage. Defenses such as mines are not cost effective as they are used once and then gone. Improve these things and I believe you'll have a great game!

One of my all-time favorite games.

I love this very much, and I've been trying to master it. It's an amazing defense game, which saddens me at the thought how it isnt as popular as it should be.
