Intruders – Robot Defense’s reflexive tap controls aims to ensure that all players have an easy time carrying out any desired instructions, with 4 individual game modes from Rush to Time-Attack each offering a different gameplay hook with plenty to do.

Enhanced HD 3D visuals not commonly seen amongst other mobile games in the genre help give Intruders – Robot Defense a better chance of drawing the eye, and with multiple achievements to unlock and in-game leaderboards, you wouldn’t be blamed for losing hours to the game’s core strategic robot fighting warfare.
