Flash Tower Defense Game of the Week: Penguin Attack TD 2
« on: April 09, 2010, 08:55:33 AM »
This Tower Defense games has some of the smoothest and nicest looking cartoony graphics of any tower defense game i've seen.  Enemies have to go around towers as well, making for some nice strategy.  Looks good  :up:

it's a little on the easy side, but this is the *perfect* first TD game for your little ones because the options are so straightforward.. if they can come to terms with the idea that the penguins are the bad guys.

 A little on the easy side?   :o Did you make it all the way through first time you played it?  After messing with it for 30+ minutes I'm still stuck on level 3.  ;)

Geez, what a time waster...  :Thmbsup:  ;D

It's best to play such games on their "home" server, armorgames.com. The game size is a little bit larger there.

Exploit a bug in game design: Buy tower. Sell tower. Repeat. You get experience for buying towers as well, so you level-up in no time to get the flak cannon + start with more money.

Game hints:
a.) Build mazes with the simple turret (don't upgrade) to slow down enemies. 
b.) Use flak cannon (upgrade!) or later missile launcher (upgrade!!) only.
c.) Replace some turrets with the green turret (upgrade!) after the first few waves to slow down enemies. It helps a lot when dealing with tanks or bosses.
d.) Levels with two entrances... use the turrets to direct the penguins to the other entrance.

Too bad the game has some bugs... bosses do not appear (often), airplanes fly off screen and cost lives (lvl 4 und 6), invisible turrets (sometimes). But it's still fun.
