Defensoid Review

Mar 21, 2011

The tower defense genre is well represented on the Android market, and as such, new entrants into the genre have to prove themselves worthy in order to attract attention. Despite a few flaws, Defensoid does just that with strong gameplay, and some unique features.

Defensoid adds its own unique twist to the tower defense genre. Like many TD games, each level in Defensoid has set obstacles that you have to work around. Unlike most TD games, it also has some tiles that will damage each enemy that crosses them, and some tiles that buff the enemies. For example, guiding enemies across a radioactive tile will damage them, while guiding them across a speed up tile will give them a speed boost, causing them to take less damage as they zip past your towers. The trick is to build a maze that avoids the tiles that help the enemies, while taking them over the tiles that hurt them.
