[Game Review] Fort Courage Is Another Solid Game Held Back By In-App Purchases

[Game Review] Fort Courage Is Another Solid Game Held Back By In-App Purchases

Real innovation is suddenly becoming depressingly rare in the mobile space: look no further than the army of Temple Run clones that have come out in the last few months. Sure, most are fun, and some even eclipse the original (see Agent Dash), but they're all copying game mechanics pretty shamelessly. In this environment, it's so refreshing to see something like Fort Courage: a new game that adds compelling and exciting elements to an old formula.

[New Game] Fort Courage From The Makers Of Prey Brings Glossy, Goofy Tower Defense To Tegra Devices

[New Game] Fort Courage From The Makers Of Prey Brings Glossy, Goofy Tower Defense To Tegra Devices

It's been a long time since Desktop Tower Defense - the genre needs a little shaking up. And with the Prey series of shooter games under their belts, Human Head Studios thinks they're the ones to do it. Their latest game is Fort Courage, and it fits broadly into the mobile-friendly category. The free game is available right now on the Google Play Store, but you'll need an NVIDIA Tegra-powered device to run it, and a Tegra 3 for the best results.

[New Game] Orc Genocide Combines Tower Defense And Multiplayer Strategy, Kills More Orcs Than Aragorn

[New Game] Orc Genocide Combines Tower Defense And Multiplayer Strategy, Kills More Orcs Than Aragorn

Four out of five fantasy authors agree: orcs are bad. Combine this rather simplistic notion with tower defense (and gloss over the fact that the player is creating his or her own army of unholy killing machines) and you've got Orc Genocide. The basic idea follows the super-popular tower defense genre pretty closely, but infuses it with more strategy and tactics than we've seen in a long time. The multiplayer options - both local and over a wireless LAN - are icing on the proverbial cake.

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

[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?

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

[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.

Hexage's Upcoming Game, Radiant Defense, Is Of Tower Defense Genre, But You Will Want To Play It Anyway [Video]

Hexage's Upcoming Game, Radiant Defense, Is Of Tower Defense Genre, But You Will Want To Play It Anyway [Video]

I know, I know, who wants to hear about yet another tower defense game? Actually, I do - I still find this genre to be one of the most enjoyable on a mobile device and pretty much the only one that can keep me interested for longer than a day (I've been playing Com2uS' Tower Defens: Lost Earth nonstop for the last few days). And you might too, when you see the video of Hexage's upcoming title, Radiant Defense.

[New Game] Tower Defense: Lost Earth from Com2uS Is A Beautiful Game In A Crowded Field

[New Game] Tower Defense: Lost Earth from Com2uS Is A Beautiful Game In A Crowded Field

You may be familiar with Com2uS from popular titles like Homerun Battle 3D and Slice It. Well, the developer's newest effort comes into a genre that is already more than adequately represented with Tower Defense: Lost Earth. This game is free to download, but as most of Com2uS' games lately have, it relies on in-app purchases to milk you for cash over time.

Epic Defense Is A Magical Twist On The Tower Defense Genre, Has Way More Than Two Towers

Epic Defense Is A Magical Twist On The Tower Defense Genre, Has Way More Than Two Towers

Before you ask, yes, this is another tower defense game, but this one is actually unique enough to merit a mention. Where most tower defense games opt for a linear upgrade path for a set of towers, all purchased from money accumulated by killing enemies, Epic Defense uses a less linear and more experimental approach.

Instead of having an array of towers you can purchase for various prices, you're given a set of blank, featureless towers.

[New Game] Meltdown On Mars Sets Up A Colony On The Android Market, Pits You Against Invading Alien Hordes, Ripley-Style

Thumbstar Games, whose previous work appears to be an Android version of that game they played in Hackers, has launched its new shooter/tower defense game for Android, Meltdown on Mars. The game is reminiscent of Gun Bros., with some tower defense elements adding an extra layer of strategy to the game.

The game utilizes a dual-virtual-joystick system to move and shoot. You can also create and upgrade towers to help you defeat the incoming invasion.

[Review] 11 Bit Studios Revolutionizes The Tower Defense Genre With Anomaly Warzone Earth HD

You may have heard of Anomaly Warzone Earth HD before, and while it isn't new to Android, it is new to the Android Market. 11 Bit Studios released this game exclusively into the Amazon Appstore some months ago, but now it's fully out in the open for everyone else to enjoy. What's so great is that this game is both fresh and entirely unique. Hearing that about a title coming out of the tower defense genre sounds weird, right?
