[Review] Radiant Defense Is One Of The Best Tower Defense Games On Android Right Now

Alright, yes. The tower defense genre is flooded. Radiant Defense still deserves an honorable mention in the crowded field. The game, from the creators of Radiant HD, continues the neon-colored universe's traditions of quirky humor and colorful enemies. Curiously, though, it does not follow the previous game's 8-bit homage tradition. Still, we think it adds enough to the genre to be worth your time.

What's Different About This Tower Defense Game?

If this game were exactly like all the others, it wouldn't be worth a mention. Radiant Defense feels a bit more like a grown-ups tower defense game, though.

[New Game] Hexage, Creator Of Hit Game Radiant, Releases Radiant Defense, A Tower Defense Game In The Same Universe

Back in the day, Android games sucked. There were so few of them and the quality of most games was so awful that it was hardly worth playing. In those days, Radiant was a beacon of light in a cold, dark Market. It may be too soon for nostalgia, but color us excited when we saw Radiant Defense on the Play Store.

Yes, it's a tower defense game. Yes, you're probably sick of the genre. Thankfully, Hexage at least put in some effort to change up the gameplay to make things interesting. In addition to Radiant's familiar style of every color in the rainbow and then some, all glowing with an intensity that would make a rave blush, the developer has also added a mechanic that allows you to choose the paths your enemies follow, giving this game a bit more strategic opportunities than just picking your weapons, which becomes rote after a while.

[Quick Hands-On] Radiant Particles Is My Favorite Live Wallpaper To Date - Simple, Beautiful, And Easy On The Resources

Generally speaking (and apparently like most Android owners), I love the idea of live wallpapers, but in practice, the cost (on the phone, not the wallet) is too high to stomach in return for a bit of show. For quite some time (probably about 6 months of my nearly 2 years with Android), though, I ran the absolutely awesome Mario Live Wallpaper. Until recently, that is - after roughly 3 months straight with it, I switched to a static wallpaper (specifically, this one) once more.

Until today, that is; this morning, I found an awesome new live wallpaper when the dev shared it on reddit.
