    GTDOAT!!

    Before this game came along, the closest I ever came to "tower defense" was C&C Red Alert, building Tesla coils and Flame towers. That was back in the mid 90's and was my favourite part of the game. Now a game completel... Read Full Review

    Great little game

    I got this game after playing the demo. At the current price, it has been one of the best games I've purchased in years. The concept is simple: place various towers on a grid and try to kill the aliens before they steal... Read Full Review

    Like chess, simple rules, complex play ... only bigger game maps

    This game is like chess, simple rules, but complex play. But then they add pieces, bigger maps ... requiring more, deeper strategy. Forget the story, it's lame. And apparently the aliens can't fire either. But that a... Read Full Review

    This game is a tower defense game. If you havent played one, play one online now.

    This game is the classic tower defense. You build and upgrade towers to stop an alien enemy from stealing your power cores. The graphics in this game are suprisingly good for an arcade game, the soundtrack is good, but b... Read Full Review
