The Anomaly games gained attention not only because they are staggeringly gorgeous, but because the gameplay was a clever twist on the age-old tower defense genre. Past games had you playing as the creeps fighting through the towers, but Anomaly Defenders is more traditional—you're in control of the towers, but it's the humans you're fighting, not aliens.

The Great Prank War is a fierce battle over control of a park, with the manager of a rival area having gone back in time to alter history and place both establishments under his domain.
Bug Heroes 2 is the sequel to an iOS game that never made it over to Android, so bear with me as I get you up to speed. This series has garnered high reviews due to its compelling mix of tower defense and twin-stick shooting action. It packs numerous heroes into squads and tasks players with spilling enough bug guts to improve these characters over time. When you combine this quriky premise with rather appealing graphics, it becomes somewhat easy to understand this game's success.
Clash of Clans fans will find a lot of familiarity in Boom Beach, a similar title from Supercell with more conventional characters and weapons.

(A limited geographical rollout is typical for testing.) If you've got access to this early version of the game, have fun: it's a free download.
There's a new tower defense game on Android seeking your eyeballs and your money. It's called Prime World: Defenders and you can play it on Android andFacebook today with full gameplay sync. Yeah, you might hate Facebook, but not everyone does.
On the surface this is a traditional tower defense game – all the usual upgradable towers and waves of creeps are present and accounted for. In addition to all that, however, there's a collectable card element to Prime World: Defenders.
Everything about OTTTD seems bananas – there are flying mechanical sharks, an octopus riding a motorcycle, zombie butchers, and many other exotic creatures that you will encounter and blow to bits with an array of defense towers and heroes. We posted a few preview videos and screens yesterday because the game looked awesome, and now it's ready for you to download in the Play Store.
If there's something missing from most mobile tower defense games, it's a little dash of crazy. The upcoming OTTTD says right in the name what you're getting – it's a crazy over-the-top game that merges traditional tower defense with real-time strategy and a bit of role-playing. It also has a giant cybernetic shark with rocket launchers, which, c'mon... that's awesome.
