HexDefense Review

Mar 2, 2011

HexDefense is an open path tower defense game, where your goal is similar to other tower defense games – that is, you have to construct towers to take out enemies that spawn from reaching your goal. The difference is that there’s no set path that they travel upon, the levels are set upon a hexagonal grid, and part of the challenge comes from not just erecting the proper towers to stop the enemy waves, but from finding the correct layout to use. The enemies follow what is automatically the best path, so you have to try to elongate their path as much as possible to keep them away from the goal, and to do even more damage to them. By the way, you can’t get smart and just erect towers to block the path – the game makes you fight fair.
