Exceptional Tower Defense
Well, I have to hand it to you: this is an exceptionally good tower defense game! I have never given out a 10 before, but I really think that this deserves it. There are many TD games out there that, and let's be honest here, are half-hearted tripe, but it is plain to see that this one has been well planned and executed.
The maps are very well drawn and animated, and are full of colour, there is a real attention to detail here. The sprites are cute and detailed too, which adds to the atmosphere. In fact the artwork, in it's comic style, throughout the game is very appealing. So it looks good - but it doesn't end there (thank goodness!):
There is a really nice balance to the gameplay. The feature of the spawning barracks tower, along with the availability of only fixed strategic positions for your towers means you have to think carefully about placement and upgrade/build strategy. The author has even had the imagination to make the upgrade paths a bit more varied that just your usual linear 'more range, more damage' mantra that we have seen so many times before. Each upgrade looks great on screen too, again a tribute to the excellent art direction.
Other features include the ability to purchase tower and spell upgrades between levels with earned stars and achievements (I love achievements!).
I love it.
Best game I have ever played in NG
I actually opened an account in NG to write my first review.
I can't believe a flash game could be so complete.
The level of detail regarding playing options is awesome. For instance, when I first started playing I wished a rally point could be established for warriors and BAM there it was !
The graphics are very detailed, the theme is well constructed. I am very picky when "technologies" are involved in themes such as medieval and I felt like rockets and snipers where OK to be there.
Voices when building and upgrading are very ammusing and music is nice.
Strategy regarding towers, upgrades and locations is critial to be able to beat the game in normal mode on early stages.
The fact that one can select the difficulty makes it either fun or challenging for diferent types of players. The challenge modes fulfill adicted gamers' needs. Plus ingame achievements are fun.
I hope game developers get real profit from making such a great game. To my mind, this is way better than certain extremely popular games designed for mobile devices that really do not entertain.
I am certain I will be enjoying this game in a couple of months just like I am doing right now.
Awesome game, kept me anticipated the whole time. First game i've played in a while to keep me entertained so long! Very strategic and challenging! :D
it is so freaking awsomeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
