One of my most favorite types of games on the iPhone has to be tower defense games. Something about defending my tower from the enemies just seems so alluring, so when I saw Fantasy Defense, I was very excited to review it. This game takes the timeless classic and remakes it with a few twists.
When I first launched Fantasy Defense, I immediately noticed the great graphics. The backgrounds for each level were interesting. Also, the characters were cool looking as well. Each character seemed as if it were from an RPG game and had a great detailed picture pop up when you clicked on them. It would have been nice if these details were carried out in the icons that were clicked to purchase the characters, but that is a small point that does not really matter.
Fantasy Defense features 50 levels, each getting progressively harder. I liked how you were presented with the exact amount and type of enemy before each round, so you would be prepared for what is coming. Another nice feature was the automatic pausing of the wave when you were upgrading your characters. In most other games, the enemies continue to zoom past as you franticly try to upgrade so being able to take the time to upgrade was a nice addition.
My favorite “extra” in Fantasy Defense was the random items scattered across the playing field. In each level, you could find boxes and crystals. Breaking these objects would give you more mana, money, or space. You can destroy these objects by building characters nearby and targeting the object. It’s ok, the character automatically goes back to shooting enemies when they reach the character’s shooting range.
Another great feature were special powers. These can be unlocked by advancing through the stages and give your characters advantages to help you win. This is a nice way to reward players for beating levels.
Fantasy Defense has cool graphics, an interesting twist, and challenging levels. If you’re looking for a new game that won’t break the bank, check out Fantasy Defense.
