iPhone/iPod Touch App of the Week
Pros: 0.99 cents, Three difficulty modes providing wide variety of challenge, Allows you to create your own pathway of defense, Pretty visuals when things go boom
Cons: Difficulty on the harder levels "forces" you to follow one set method, Not a great game for newcomers to Tower Defense genre
Geodefense was THE tower defense game to play through over the summer. It comes as no surprise that the app I am recommending is the "sequel" to the hit title.
Overall, Geodefense is a tower defense game. The object is simple: Ensure the bad guys don't get from point A to point B using the towers at your disposal. As the difficulty increases, you find out this is not as easy as it sounds. Towers must be placed at strategic points to provide the best impact they can or your health will dwindle away and you will be required to rethink your original strategy.
Though amazingly difficult on Hard mode, the game is incredibly satisfying. Complete with a High Score leaderboard and possibility of updates with new stages (which they have done with the original Geodefense), Swarm is a game worthy of space on your mobile device. At only .99cents, Geodefense Swarm is easy to recommend.
