Similar to: Tower Defense
Genre: Real time strategy/puzzle
Sometimes simple games are the most fun.
There used to be a flash game called tower defense that I used to play. It had simple gameplay, with a simple goal, build towers to what ever it is from reaching whatever you are protecting. Since it was a flash game many sites offered different versions of it, so it was an easy to find common game.
I had no clue what type of game this would be when I put it in, and was pleased to discover it is a souped up fancy version of tower defense that actually has some story, and the different levels have different challenges. This game has you transform trees in a forrest into different types of towers that will stop monsters from attacking your village, and killing its inhabitants. There are multiple types of towers that can kill different types of creatures. For example an arrow tower can kill flying and ground creatures, but a cannon tower only kills ground creatures. When an creature is killed, it usually drops money, which you can use to build more towers. Some creatures also drop bonus gems that allow you to upgrade or research buying new towers.
This game is a challenging little puzzler that can be fun for anyone. Please check it out.
