A sequel to popular tower defense game, Star Defense Mission, has been released by Yezh Studio. Star Defense Mission 2 is also a tower defense with a sci-fi space theme.
This time, the games boasts three basic towers with six different evolutionary routes for those towers to go via upgrades. The ten different enemies in this challenging sequel can use seven different skills, making the defense in each level challenging and unique based on which enemies are coming. The game also includes five different items and 25 battle maps.
The story for Star Defense Mission takes place in Lightsource year 9-2. Some humans have escaped the rule of a tyrant, Sinu, with a large amount of energy crystals. The humans must use their rebel force to defend the crystals against the hordes of enemies Sinu sends against them.
The original game was featured on Apple’s New & Noteworthy page. Star Defense Mission 2 is available for $2.99 and is an iPad only game.
In development game, Dragons vs. Unicorns, announced a single player mode to its soon-to-be-released game.
Single player gameplay in Dragons vs. Unicorns consists of protecting unicorn eggs in their nests while waves of various Dragon Minions come in successful levels to destroy them. The player earns points for hatching more unicorns and earns gold for killing the minions. Golden eggs occasionally appear that hatch the special Golden Unicornling. Protecting bunnies is also a priority. The bunnies come from the opposite side of the screen to incubate the unicorn eggs. Hedgehogs, which apparently have a magical pact with the unicorns, can be used to throw boomerang-style into the minions to cause maximum destruction. Check out the labeled picture in the gallery for a more detailed account of gameplay.
Digital Harmony Games already has one game on the App Store, Chin Up. Dragons vs. Unicorns is projected to be released with both single and VS modes, player data options, and social connectivity. To keep up with development of Dragons vs. Unicorns, keep an eye on the Digital Harmony Games blog here.
Tower defense games on the App Store are nothing new and neither are games featuring modern military equipment. However, has there ever been a game that combines these two elements? Probably, but no one should let that stop them from at least giving Battleground Defense from Evelyn Software Labs a look.
Staying true to its promise of combining “classic tower defense gameplay” with “the intense action of modern warfare,” Battleground Defense’s collection of 18 towers includes missile launchers, heavy canons and flame throwers. These are the kinds of weapons one needs to take on tanks, jets, armored cars and the rest of the game’s 15 different enemy types. Among the nine maps are some where the enemy path is pre-determined and others where players must use strategic tower placement to redirect foes themselves like in Fieldrunners.
Available now for $2.99, iPhone and iPad owners alike can experience this tower defense game for the 21st century.

Zombie Invasion HD, previously known as Defense Craft, has just seen an update for the iPad. Why any of this required a name change, which subsequently led to a bunch of time wasted trying to figure out why the heck the game I was trying to link to didn’t exist, is completely beyond me. However, it’s a thing and it exists now. Best to talk about it.
Whatever it’s official name is at this point, the game is primarily about tower defense. Players fend off hordes of weird floating zombies using even weirder towers. The original release offered up close to 25 levels, multiple enemy and tower types as well as a handful of themes. This update increases the amount of stages on hand, giving players even more zombie-fighting goodness.
As some added incentive, Zombie Invasion HD will be free for the next few days. Why not take a look? Try out some of those new levels perhaps?
It appears as though a new tower defense game has been thrown into the mix, and it offers up something that most others in the genre don’t: two more sides. That is to say, it takes the concept of grid-based tower construction and bumps things up from 4 sided boxes to 6 sided cells. It’s name is HexDefense and it’s the new, Open-GL using kid on the block.
HexDefense adheres to the more “open” style of defense gameplay in which the towers themselves are used to block enemy movement. At least, some of the levels do. Others appear to be of the more traditional set-path variety. Regardless of the layout, players will have to protect their base from enemy waves for 35 levels. Earning funds to place and upgrade more towers, naturally.
Seeing as it’s already in the App Store and is totally free, it’s something for strategy aficionados to consider.
Paradox Interactive is a name that’s well known to many PC gamers. A developer best known for their fiercely challenging but always interesting strategy games, they’re a true success story for the Swedish game industry. Why am I explaining all this? Because Paradox Interactive is bringing this level of class and expertise to the iPad with Defenders of Ardania coming this December 6.
Previously assumed to be a PC exclusive, Defenders of Ardania will bring an exciting mix of the tower defense and light RTS genres. Players will be challenged to not only defend their own territory but to also deploy waves of enemies against their opponents. Fortunately numerous deadly spells help along the way.
It’ll be possible to choose from three different races across three different worlds, each unique in their own different ways. The campaign mode looks set to be pretty extensive plus there will be online multiplayer functionality, too.
All those features will be bundled together with a pretty attractive appearance that looks fairly PC like.
Check out the gameplay trailer below. We’ll be sure to keep up to date with all the latest developments over the next few weeks.
Look, it’s not your fault. You have a busy life. Go ahead and slow down, let us take care of running through all the crazy long price drop lists for you and find you the top three sweet deals for the day. You know you want to. Here’s what we have for you today:
Inspire Pro – Was $7.99, now $0.99
From our review: “Inspire Pro is a spectacular painting app for the iPad, and its price makes it even more enticing. Even those with more ability to appreciate art than create it, like me, will see the enduring value of an app like Inspire.”
The Creeps! HD – Was $1.99, now FREE
Our reviewer said, “I’ve played tower defense games for years. I experienced my first taste of them on Warcraft 3, with the huge variety of fan-made TDs created with Warcraft 3′s map editor. I’ve seen a ridiculous amount of features in a ridiculous amount of defense games, The Creeps! is one of the few that’s got it right.”
Incredibooth – Was $0.99, now FREE
Our review said, “IncrediBooth does an amazing job of bringing those retro style photo booths straight to your phone. Using the iPhone 4′s front facing camera you can quickly take a strip of photos using one of the lenses offered.”
The name NCsoft will sound very familiar to many PC gamers. Most famous for its MMORPG creations, Lineage, Guild Wars and Aion, NCsoft has made the move into mobile gaming. Their first release has been released today to the App Store, and it’s looking pretty impressive as well as utterly gorgeous.
Gem Keeper is its name and its a Tower Defense game. Players must strategically place towers in order to protect the all important magical Gems from the fearsome horde of monsters. Controls involve a sliding system in which players can move towers up and down rails in order to increase range as well as ensure players can manipulate attacks. This is all laid out to ensure that Gem Keeper isn’t like all the other Tower Defense games. Players can’t just sit back and watch having placed their defenses down as there’s always something that needs doing. Players have to keep a close eye on everything due to the enemies being smarter than the average Tower Defense crony. These monsters can even evolve into lumbering boss monsters once they capture the Gems.
30 levels are offered alongside 3 different difficulty levels and 3 different themes. 14 varied and unique defense towers are possible to use against the 22 different enemy types.
It all sounds pretty intriguing to me and taking a look at the screenshots below clearly demonstrate just how beautiful Gem Keeper is. NCsoft has always been great at creating beautiful scenery in its PC games and it looks like a similar tale with this iOS release. Action looks a little frantic yet detailed, hopefully offering an ideal burst of creativity to a tried and tested formula.
Gem Keeper is out now priced at $2.99 and we’ll be sure to offer a full review very soon.
For now, gaze longingly at the delightful screenshots below.
