I know what you’re thinking: Jeez, ANOTHER tower defense game? Well, yes, but Fieldrunners 2 isn’t just more of the same. For those that have played tower defense games before, Fieldrunners 2 is easy to pick up and doesn’t need much explanation, although the game does have some unique aspects to it.

The Good

One of the most notable aspects of Fieldrunners 2 is the soundtrack. The music feels like someone actually put some time into it, rather than just utilizing the bland 8bit sounds we are starting to get used to for mobile games. The game is graphically superior to many other titles on the Google Play Store. I can also appreciate the well-crafted tutorial that was included in Field Runners 2; it got rid of the trial-by-error feel that a lot of mobile games have. There are also three different difficulties that make it easier for casual players to enjoy the game on easier settings. Some thought process is involved, as you can choose your loadout of what types of towers you want to use; it’s not just a mindless grind like most tower defense titles.  And, how about a campaign that is over 20 hours long? 20 hours for $2.99…count me in!

The Bad

One of the most disappointing aspects of Fieldrunners 2 is the loading time between games. However, it’s not enough to keep me away. Matches are also too long, which takes away from the pick up whenever and put down whenever feel of mobile gaming.  Instead of 50 rounds per match, it should be reduced to 30 or 35. Luckily, though, there is a fast forward button for every game so that you can play at double speed.

The Ugly Truth

If you are a fan of tower defense games, Fieldrunners 2 is the game of choice. The graphics look fantastic, which is probably why the game takes so long to load. It runs smooth, though, with little to no hiccups, and at only $2.99, you won’t beat it as a way to pass the time with a top quality game.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes.

Learning Curve:Low.

Who Is It For:Those that want a better tower defense game.

What I Like:20 hours long.

What I Don't Like:Long matches.

Final Statement:Best tower defense game on the Google Play Market.
