What's the best tower defense game you've played?

Postby Kamerynn » Mon Mar 09, 2009 10:24 am

Ever since the W3 tower defense mod, these games have been cropping up all over the place. I'm addicted to them and I'm looking for some suggestions to help in finding some cool new ones. :lol:

My favorites so far include gemcraft and mushroom tower defense. I'll give pirates vs. ninjas 1 an honorable mention because... it's pirates vs. ninjas lol.

Hi, Kamerynn!

I too enjoy Tower Defense games. I recommend Defense Grid: The Awakening.

PCGamer gave it an Editor's Choice award and rated it 90%. "A deep, strategic puzzler infused with personality."

Hope you enjoy it!

:P

Elemental TD is probably the most interesting and also the oldest one.
2nd best is gem TD.

Alteil is pretty much well balanced. Sometimes you loose and sometimes the enemy wins.

My favourite was Gemcraft, but Xenotactics was pretty good. I didn't care for the second one as much, but the first kept me hooked for hours, maybe days.

Thanks for the games, Peralsic. Not the best graphics, but good for a few hours of fun, for sure :D

I figured I'd download defense grid to check it out - I'm sure Inigo has great taste. However, after getting it, I noticed it needed steam to run! I've been highly biased against steam ever since I worked in a lan gaming center. I feel like starting to rant about it... but I'll control myself. :lol: It looked like a good TD game, too :cry: It's just not worth messing with the steaming pile of @%$# (as we lovingly called it) to play it, for me.

I'm off to mess with Xenotactics :)

LOL! Totally understandable, Kamerynn! I sold out to Steam [shame]. :oops:

I've wasted way too much time on Xenotactics in the past. The best part is you can destroy your own units, which lets you change the exit end, forcing enemies back and forth through endless mazes until they're destroyed. And the graphics are so shiny. :D

Edit: Kamerynn, I can't stop watching your avatar pic...

Monsters from Pixel Junk is incredibly good. And there's another Final Fantasy one Crystal something. I think they may be console only but Monsters has amazingly cartoon shaded graphics and a horde of build options and secrets.

I thought the Neopets one with ants and cake was cute.
