It's no secret that we're big fans of tower defense games here at AP -- from Plants vs. Zombies to Fieldrunners HD, we're all about adding a new twist to a fun classic. Magic Defenders HD looks to do just that, with its deep storyline, amazing graphics, and downright awesome gameplay. Don't take my word for it, though, check this out:

Instead of setting up tons of cannons, railguns, or lasers to stop intruders from breaching your walls, you play the part of a lone sorcerer, capable of casting spells to destroy hoards of plundering orcs en masse.

You get to choose your hero for each of the three invasion episodes - the forest, the walls outside the town, and inside the town itself. Naturally, each episode is more difficult than the last, and you can special your character accordingly. It also offers OpenFeint leaderboards so you can take your achievements to the next level and compete with players around the globe.

The game is designed specifically for Honeycomb tablets (Update 10/10/11: it's now compatible with Android 2.2+!) and will set you back a mere $1.34 in the Android Market.
