Last night I was searching the Android Market for a fun ‘tower defense’-style of game. The search returned dozens of results but somehow my index finger ended up tapping on Empire Defense. It was nothing like I expected. I only wanted a classic tower defense game and ended up with something a little different to my surprise.
It is not your usual tower defense game. Not at first. There is just one big green field at the start (because you have to unlock the other maps) which confused me for a moment. Where is the path? Then it dawned on me. There is no path because YOU are going to make it! Neat, huh?
At the start, there are 4 options for towers that can be built. Basic Archery Tower, High Archery Tower, a cannon or Bombard Tower and a Frozen Tower. There are 2 more slots (I think) for towers that can be unlocked later in the game. I haven’t gotten to that part yet.
The game objective is simple. Build as many towers to stop the enemy from reaching the other end of the map. Gold is earned every time an enemy is killed. All towers can be upgraded.
Here are a couple of screenshots from the game.
What the game needs IMHO:
Overall, it is a FUN tower defense game. Oh, and watch out for that elephant!
