+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Defend the Cake is a new spin on tower defense games that sees you protecting a sugary paradise from pesky ants and other pests. You’ll be building towers and using special abilities to save the cakes Eggperor Shellemane and his helpful Eggbirds have carefully created.

A sugary indie delicacy from former Blizzard and Riot alums, Defend the Cake is getting its biggest update yet in version 2.0, so now’s the perfect time to dive back into the game, or start fresh. Here are some helpful tips to beat every level in Defend the Cake.

Place your cake strategically

In Defend the Cake, you can choose where you put your cake on the battlefield, ultimately determining the path the bugs will take through your defenses. Put some thought into how you can best protect your cake from the buggy masses. If you have second thoughts, no problem - you can always move your cake elsewhere before the battle begins.

Fend off the undead hordes in Dead 2048, the world’s first 2048 Tower Defense game

Posted by 148Apps Staff on December 19th, 2017
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

We’ve all imagined how we’d handle the difficult scenarios that come with a zombie apocalypse. Go for the gun, barricade yourself in, and just generally keep as high as possible. Dead 2048 is the new tower-defence/puzzle combo that gives players the means to do all these things, available now for both iOS and Android players.

Tower building is the name of the game in Dead 2048, being your best chance at surviving the forthcoming undead hordes that remain intent on chewing flesh and taking over the town. You’ll need to start off small, connecting blocks together with traditional 2048 mechanics and getting yourself as high as possible. The higher your towers, the better your chances at popping off successful shots.

Aiding your survival is the ability to construct specific towers, each being ideal for specific purposes. Would you rather land a critical, have better range, or do more damage? The zombie waves will never stop coming, so it’s up to you to survive them using the correct tactics.

Handily capable of being played with just one hand thanks to a portrait perspective, Dead 2048 aims to enthral players as the first game to mash tower defence with 2048 puzzle-solving. The more you play, the more evolved your towers can become, so undead enthusiast will always have plenty to return to when craving a bite of the action. And you have to clear as many missions as possible in order to build a Laboratory, so needed in order to save the mankind.

Take your best shot at surviving the apocalypse in Dead 2048, free to download now from both Google Play and the App Store.
