Tower Defense games collection

I searched the forum for tower defense games, and made this list with all the online ones
Enjoy them as your productivity decreases!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antbuster - http://www.addicting...s.com/antbuster.html



Protect the cake (which isnt a lie) from ants

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Roman Sanines tower defense - http://www.jeannette...om/tower-defence.swf



Pretty standard tower defense, but fun non the less

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Turret defense game - http://www.gamesforw...t_Defense-Flash_Game



A tower defense game with power management and other non typical elements

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Onslaught - http://ec2-1.playr.co.uk/onslaught/
Onslaught 2 - http://onslaught2.fizzlebot.com/




Very in depth and advanced tower defense games. One of the best!
Version 2 is alot like the old one just a bit more advanced

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flash circle TD - http://www.candystan...com/play.do?id=17995



A bit different from normal TD games in the sense that theres no "exit" on the map you play it on, but if the total amount of creeps exceeds 100 you lose.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Temple Guardian - http://www.addicting.../templeguardian.html



A fairly simple yet complicated (oxymoron?) colorful tower defense

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Revenge of the stick - http://www.freeworld...nge-of-the-stick.htm



A very awesome tower defense with stick figures!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Desktop tower defense - http://www.handdrawngames.com/DesktopTD/



Also one of the best tower defenses that is out at the moment. A most play for any tower defense addict

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flash element TD - http://novelconcepts...o.uk/FlashElementTD/

http://img108.imageshack.us/img108/6420/towerdefensens9.jpg
Tower Defense games collection updated 27-9-08


A simple tower defense that requires LOADS of strategy to complete fully


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Flash Elemental TD 2 - http://www.casualcol...%5FElement%5FTD%5F2/

Elemental TD 2.png

The new Flash Elemental Tower defense, it is awesome. Its got a cute simplish graphic style and is fairly balanced. The sounds are cute too with scary sounding ghost like voices for the invisible creeps and big 'dur dur dur here I am' voices for the armored creeps

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RPG tower defense - http://www.ealiensof...com/Flash_RPG_TD.php

Tower Defense games collection updated 27-9-08


I cant say i have played this one actually.....

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Budapest defenders - http://alt.tnt.tv/tn...tdefenders/index.htm



simplistic and well done. Just how we like it!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Turret wars - http://www.victoryga...mes/turret_wars.html



This one is pretty good, its even better if you arent the best at tower defense games since its pretty easy (at least on easy :\ )

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Toytown tower defenders - http://www.utterlysu...b.com/games/tttd.htm



Tower defense with emphasis on your "hero"

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bloons tower defense - http://ninjakiwi.com/bloonstd.html
Bloons tower defense 2 - http://bloons.tower....nse.2.fizzlebot.com/

1
2

Cant say I like em, but they seem popular

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Turret tyranny - http://www.freewareg...t/turret-tyranny.asp



I dont like this one because i suck at it!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vector TD - http://www.candystan...com/play.do?id=18047

Tower defense3.jpg

I just LOOOOVE vector TD because of its neon theme and its music (if you dont like it you can turn it off from "music")

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VR defender Y3K - http://www.armorgame...fendery3k_popup.html

VR defender Y3K.png

I think this one is incredibly hard but I added it anyway

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Strategy Defense 3 - http://www.gamebalan...rategy%20Defense%203



I have no idea what to write about this game so I will let mouser do it for me
Right here

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    
Elite Forces Defense - http://www.kongregat...elite-forces-defense

td.png

Elite Forces Defense is a Tower Defense game where you take the role of a "hero" unit while you place down towers. Its a bit similar to toy town defense in that regard. But various towers upgrade your abilities

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Omega Tower Defense - http://www.flashninj...clan.com/zzz1391.php
Omega Tower Defense 2 - http://www.flashninj..._Tower_defense_2.php

http://img255.imageshack.us/img255/1017/lolotdvy8.png
Tower Defense games collection updated 27-9-08


I'll let mouser sum this one up.
"I love these tower defense games.  This is a pretty nice one, with smooth flowing enemies that move in different ways, and a nice clean upgrade system.  Plenty of strategy here."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gem Tower Defense - http://www.gemtowerdefense.com/

GEM TD.png

This TD is a game a of chance, you get 5 randomized gems each round and have to choose one of them. Depending on what you get you can either choose to keep the best for your needs or combine two or more lesser gems into a better one.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gem Craft - http://armorgames.com/play/1716/gemcraft

Gemcraft1.png

This game is a lot like Gem Tower Defense, but its much better in my opinion. You start the level with a few towers and a few gems, you mount the gems in the towers and each gem has a different ability.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Attack of the Furries - http://summersungame...ackOfTheFurries.html

AttackOftheFurries.png

Attack of the Furries is a pretty standard TD in regards to turrets and enemies, but there's 3 kinds of resources in the game. Power, R&D points and money. You get money by killing mobs and placing mines, turrets and upgrades are purchased with money. R&D points are also used for buying turrets and upgrades but can only be acquired with research labs. Power is used for powering turrets, you gain it by building power plants.

Downloadable games
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DtDtowerdefense - DtDtowerdefense download

DtDtowerdefense.png

I dont really like it because its slow paced and easy (you can kill everything with a cluster of the weakest towers)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Immortal Defense - Immortal defense download



Pretty graphics, some story elements, in depth and complex.
cost: 22.95$ (I got it from game.giveawayoftheday.com)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Curator defense - http://www.davidbhowe.net/cd/main.htm



An old favorite of mousers, I like it too, not too complicated but still requires a fair bit of strategy to complete

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Master of defense - http://www.master-of-defense.com



Quite good and balanced, dont know if its worth the 19.84$ which it costs, but its a good game
cost: 19.84$ (got it from game.giveawayoftheday.com)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wicked defense - http://www.wicked-defense.com



Bit too slow paced for my tastes but seems like a good game, and its got pwetty graphics
cost: 7.29$ (tried the demo/trial thingy)

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

You weren't kidding!

I HATE TOWER DEFENSE! BECAUSE I LIKE IT TOO MUCH!

Hours later...

I've got to learn to stay away from TD threads... Ok now Ryan... Repeat after me...

I will stay away from Tower Defense threads...
I will stay away from Tower Defense threads...
I will stay away from Tower Defense threads...
I will stay away from Tower Defense threads...
I will stay away from Tower Defense threads...

I'm such a sucker for TD. It's just such a cool genre of game!

AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

So I take it then that the A's are arrow turrets, the R's are rocket turrets, the G's are gun turrets, and the H's are HE grenade turrets. But what are the exclamation marks supposed to be? And what direction are the bad guys going to come from? What is your high score on this level?  :tease:

Those are inverted Ice Towers. Since they're inverted, they start at the bottom and freeze your enemies' asses off!  :D

Well, tried the RPG Tower Defense...

That didn't work out too well. Made it to this level...

Yeah - I totally took that screen shot for effect. ;)

Actually, committed suicide here:

RPG-Tower-Defense-762-Suici.jpgTower Defense games collection updated 27-9-08

Tower Defense is a really good genre, but I can't wait until game developers start doing this stuff in Silverlight. Flash is just TOO HEAVY. The CPU was just crazy in that game so all the sprites lagged near the start, where the cannons nuked them. Not a challenge.

Anyways, it might be a good game if it can run right - Flash just isn't the right thing for games. It's just too heavy far too often.

Don't hate me:

Hate?

I think it goes a bit deeper than just hate... I'm sure I'm completely f*(&ed now for ever getting anything done again for the rest of my life... Pray we never meet...

Just kidding - But seriously - I'm screwed!   ;D

Wicked Defense videos look very cool -- it's $10 commercial product with free trial download..
Anyone tried it yet?  Seems like a nice indie game project.  Ticcer if you are involved in the project tell us more.

Report on Wicked Defense:
it's not quite for me -- but it's very beautiful and psychedelic, and i can see some people loving it.
just a bit too abstract for me to really get into.

ps. Curator Defense is still one of my favorites, if not my favorite of all:

I have played most all of this tower defense games  :-[ is quite time consuming i can tell :P. Some of them are tricky but can be really easy to beat.

In my humble opinion the most balanced is Wicked defense... $9.99 is quite cheap I think! ;D

I love the music atmosphere!!!  :Thmbsup:

Wicked Defense is VERY far from balanced. If you want to have any hope of getting anywhere in "medium" difficulty, you'll need to modify the maps to give you more money and mana.  The game is good, but the default maps in it are insanely difficult. "Hiway", the second map, is impossible to complete without modifying the map settings.

And what's with these 1 post things...  >:(

I totally agree with you, some Wick maps are really insane even if there "is medium" :huh:... By the way thats not the balance I was thinking (was thinking on no ordinary towers) and remember is just an opinion :P.

Long time ago I played starcraft tower defense online maps, then flash versions came out and I get fan of this easily (very addictive games and free :D). After some research I found sites or forums like this and thats how I knew curator defense, master of defense and now wicked defense.

Speaking of curator defense I first love it, but since I found a cheat way to build a MASTER SCORE I lost the interest (I'm not going to mention this cheat because eliminates the purpouse of the game).

Good GOD who the HELL designs this stuff? I just spent 1.5 hours on Vector, and were i not so seasoned at ignoring the call of WoW, i would have been playing for MUCH longer. Someone just extract my eyeballs right now, because if i ever see that screen again i will end up dieing of malnutrition or something.

Ehtyar.

Who are the game developers here?

I don't do any game development. I'm pretty much audio, database, utility, blah blah blah... But not games.
