Desktop Tower Defence: Rejiggered

If your desk looks like this, you should clean it. WITH FIRE.

Peeyow-peeyow-peeyow! The cutest ickle tower defence game, and the start of a PC-consuming trend, is back – this time with a ‘Pro’ suffix and a ton of new content. It’s still as lo as fi gets, so don’t go expecting DTD HD, but content-wise it’s fatted with healthy new children. For instance, there’s a new series of scenarios, and a sandbox mode in which you can toggle settings to your obsessive heart’s content. Again, no vast, sweeping changes, but what Pro does do is evolve a desktop toy into a big ol’ game in its own right. Still browser-based, still free, still as a charming as a kitten in an Easter egg. Peeyow!

    I’m still ploughing my way through Gemcraft Chapter 0 so this shall have to wait for a while if I’m to give it a bash.

    Played this for quite a bit. The tutorial levels of the campagn are alright but after the tutorial level the difficulty goes up a vertical cliff in one level.

    I never got on with this one, strange as I bought “Defence Grid: The Awakening” on Steam when it was £3.50 and have hardly stopped playing since.

    Jon,

    Not strange. I like a lot of TD games, but I don’t like DTD at all.

    I also bought DG and love it.

    It doesn’t look hand drawn any more which is a shame.

  9. Mal says:

    The hand drawn towers are still an option (on the Options menu, funnily enough)

    I’ve been playing a lot of this. The new creeps are diabolical- especially the ‘Hopper’ Creeps, which can exploit any single tile gap in your obsessively constructed maze.

    The best thing about the update is that if you play like I do, by endlessly refining a particular strategy/maze the new scenarios will force you out of your rut with their specific challenges and limitations. It’s teaching you how to have fun really.

    Here in the UK it is 4:14 am, and I have yet to go to bed. In case you were wondering whose fault this might be, I’ll tell you. It’s all Mr. Meer’s fault, that’s who.

    I don’t know, i enjoyed the first one but there’s been too many great additions over the years to the formula.

    It doesn’t help that Gemcraft 0 was released a few weeks ago.
