Where tower defense games come in nearly all shapes and sizes, Jelly Defense is a beautiful, whimsical and unexpected contender that you can’t help but love. Few TD games can tug at the heartstrings, but certainly, these oddly cute little guys are worth fighting for.
Update: I just discovered links to Jelly Defense were redirecting to Jelly Defender. My bad! All fixed now.
There are a good many things many tower defense (TD) lack nowadays, and one of them is imagination. As one of the most popular genres on the iDevice, I’ve seen food, animals, and even people represented in tower defense games that vary from odd to plain formulaic. In a genre that spawns way too many wannabes and copycats which have a bit of polish and sometimes pizzaz, Jelly Defense steps up to offer its own brand of TD. Stay tuned for a fairly exhaustive review.
Typhoon Pedring is wreaking havoc here in the Philippines so pardon the delay in posting news and reviews about games and apps to watch. Here are today’s picks:
The incredibly beautiful and almost magical puzzle adventure Drawn: The Painted Tower HD (Full) for the iPad is on sale at $3.99 for a limited time. If you missed the massive 99 cent Big Fish Games sale a few weeks back, then this is as good as it gets. Go get it, it’s definitely worth the price tag.
A Donut Games’ classic, Traffic Rush (Universal) is FREE for a limited time. Play traffic policeman and tell cars when to stop and go, while avoiding collisions. Donut Games have a Monday freebie game special promo for the next couple of weeks so stay tuned for their other offers.
Finally, Chop Chop Kicker (Universal) is also FREE for a limited time. This cute little action/platform game lets you draw rainbows, squiggles and other creative designs to keep your friend dinosaur in the air for as long as possible. Recommended for the entire family.
If I missed anything, feel free to add to the list in the comments section!
A deep, highly polished and addictive turn-based strategy game brimming over with humor, wit and a lot of heart, Great Little War Game HD, true to its name, is a gore-free and exciting take on the underrepresented genre of turn-based strategy.
The App Store is chock full of war games and war is well represented in tower defense, action adventures, first person shooters, and strategy games. As far as war games go, Great Little War Game HD travels down a path less trodden, trading the familiarity of one-on-one combat and tower-building in favor of something more complex but just as satisfying.
