So I am a sucker for tower defense (TD) games, and if you share my weakness read on for inspiration and maybe point me to a good TD I didnt know of.
I have played hundreds of TDs of varying quality, and I thought I would share my list of favorites.
Well made, versatile towers, unique, somewhat challenging, can buy premium stuff but lacks a little on long term playability. Currently at version 5 but the earlier versions are also good. Daily challenges in v5 but they are all trivial.
First version called Gemcraft chapter 1, unique idea, challenging, free, but a bit of a clicky frenzy to get good scores.
Second version called Gemcraft chapter 0 (go figure), my personal alltime favorite, when other td's are over this one is just getting started, challanging and highly replayable, free.
Third version called Gemcraft labyrinth is undoubtly the king of TDs. For a start there are 14*14 different maps to play in various modes, graphics looks a bit bland and I actually dismissed it first time I tried due to this but then I saw the light :P. It is free with option to buy premium which will unlock additional modes for extreme xp, however you can complete the entire game without buying. Two warnings, highly addictive, and dont watch any videos on the net it is more fun to find your own tactics.
A nice simple TD, not terribly long but good fun while it last, free.
Random TD 2:
Great concept, possible to tweak it alot to get high scores so very tactical but over too soon, free.
Versions 1 and 2, free, annoyingly hard, I dont really like this one .. or do I ?
Challenging and tactical, free for some hours and then you need to buy the premium to stand a chance, thought it was a bit expensive for the few extra hours. No doubt well made and fun though.
((Warcraft3 TDs, note some of these TD's may not run with current version of WC3))
Element TD - Great TD, very challenging and tactical, highly replayable.
Gem TD - Unique concept, luck based but fun and tactical.
Power towers - Unique concept, challenging, I had lots of fun playing it as not intended namely handling all 8 players instead of one which made this game very challanging and fun.
Apocalypse - 100 levels, maze like nuts, challenging.
Natures Call - Good old TD, bit simple but still tactical.
Stackers TD - Awesome idea, very challenging and replayable, thumbs up.
Sprout TD 2.1 - Unique concept, tactical and fun .. replay value mostly to get high scores.
Counter Strike TD - Well done, not too hard unless you aim for perfect.
Navy Cross - Fun but short.
Massacre - Old but good td.
TD Survivor rev 3.x - Very hard on hard, can be played as not intended by playing several players at once.
Slams solo TD - no rush, tactical, short but fun.
Zoator Survivor TD - Awesome, highly challenging and replayble.
Islands TD - clickclickclick build build buld faster, fun.
I like big ... TDs and I cannot lie!
