If there's one thing we love more than tower defense games, it's tower defense games that take a new angle or offer a different style of gameplay. That's exactly what we got out of the recently-released title Defenders, which lets you take on a more active role in your defense strategy. Check it out:

The game looks easy to pick-up-and-play, with ultra-simple controls: touch the screen to shoot arrows, drag and drop spell icons to cast. Simple, no? While the controls may be simple, surviving each battle will take strategy. Fortunately, there are upgrades, additional spells, and more along the way to help you defend your castle.

    Not to nit-pick (okay, I'm nit-picking): it's "role," not "roll." :-)

      Yeah, not sure what happened there. I had a moment of severe stupid.

    Just to point out, you can buy crystals with your credit card. It is a free playable game but there is a way for the developer to make money off this.

    tried. it seem u need to buy the point and crystal or else you'll not be able to win.

    It seems impossible to win... im level 625 and have legendary bow and maxed all skill about 100 levels ago but nothing new to do. I havent bought any crystals with real money but if i had id be very annoyed as it seems to me to be unbeatable. If anyone knows different please reply.

      i think that is the case ... they are just forcing you to spend real money in the game which is not worth it ...
      But caping at 100 levels sort of ... kills your fun !
