'Plants vs. Zombies 2' Guide: How To Spend as Little Real Money as Possible

Last week, we went pretty hard with the release of Plants vs. Zombies 2 [Free]. I mean, it's easily one of the biggest games of the year, so why the heck not? Going back a bit further, we played through a demo of the game at E3 back in June, and TA Play'd the soft-launch version of the game the following month. With the full release version seemingly not very different from the soft-launch version, we put out our full 5 star review as well as what our forum members thought about the game. Finally, we chose it as our Game of the Week last week, which isn't surprising...

You Need To See Tonight's Release 'Pirate Legends TD'

The App Store is clotted with tower defense games, but you owe it to yourself as a fan of the genre to check this one out when it hits later tonight at 11PM EST. Super Hippo absolutely nails everything you could want out of a solid TD game. It's got an awesome art style, for one, and more importantly, it mechanically holds up...

Check Out the 'Anomaly 2' Trailer, Coming This Fall

The Anomaly series of games are really awesome. We loved the original so much that it was our 2011 Game of the Year Runner Up. The pseudo-sequel was great too, and really the only "complaint" we had, which is really only a negative if you didn't also love the first game was that it was just more of the same great gameplay. Anomaly 2 launched on Steam in mid-May, leaving iOS gamers wondering if and when we'd see the game on touch devices...

On August 1, the iPhone and iPad versions of Kingdom Rush: Frontiers [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)] will receive a huge update that adds a new land, new enemies, new heroes, and what looks like a wicked crazy boss fight against a map-consuming Kraken...

Plants vs. Zombies 2 is out now in New Zealand and Australia, so of course we grabbed it and gave it a shot. Below, we've got some footage of the game that shows off its Ancient Egypt world, as well as a few new plants and enemy types...

It's been over a year and a half since last we checked out Siegecraft [$0.99]. A joint venture between BlowFish Studios and Crescent Moon Games, Siegecraft  was a simplified casual RTS that looked good but didn't offer much in terms of tactics or gameplay. ..

To the drone of determined electric rock, 3 Sprocket's latest pits geometrical combatants against each other. Cubemen2 [$1.99] is a 3D soldier-marshaling strategy game of varying description. Many will start with the tour of defense levels that gradually metes out new content. More a sandbox for play than a defined, guided experience, however, it options configurable modes of tower defense, skirmishes, territory takeover, and more...

If you tried to open up Clash of Clans [Free] this morning, you may have seen an interesting "maintenance break" message appear, which temporarily prohibited you from upgrading your camp. What's the deal? ..

'Kingdom Rush: Frontiers' Review - An Excellent Exercise In Restraint

When it comes to playing sequels to games that a nearly flawless the first round, my preference is for a follow-up that looks to iteratively improve upon on its predecessors pitfalls without messing too much with its successful formula. In this regard, Ironhide Game Studio's Kingdom Rush: Frontiers [$0.99 / $2.99 (HD)]is the perfect type of sequel for me. Preserving the smooth, well-balanced Tower Defense gameplay of the original, Frontiers adds just enough new content in towers, enemies heroes, and locales to make it another incredible experience...

It's standard tower defense every sense, from Com2uS, the guys behind the game actually titled Tower Defense [$0.99 / Free]. Defense Technica [$2.99 / Free] gives you a power core whose innards are particularly delicious looking to the alien hordes. They trample blindly toward it, ignoring your defenses until they find themselves without a route to their objective. You cobble together said defenses with the guts and gore, or a nameless resource, left by their corpses...

After playing Kingdom Rush: Frontiers a bit, it's clear that it definitely delivers one thing: more Kingdom Rush [$0.99 / $0.99 (HD)]. In other words, it doesn't break the mold; it adds to it. The new towers, new heroes, a new world, new enemies, and the addition of hero skill trees enhance an experience that its predecessor laid the groundwork for. It's a pretty good game almost by default since the first was great to begin with...

'Kingdom Rush Frontiers' Coming To iOS This June 6

Here's some awesome news: Kingdom Rush Frontiers, the upcoming follow-up to, basically, everyone's favorite tower defense game, is coming out this June 6 across iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Creator Iron Hide Games has put the following trailer celebrating this reveal, giving us all a glimpse of what's to come in this new one:..

Mugshot Games' CastleMine [$0.99] is one of those rare mobile titles that did not make its initial debut on iOS. In fact, the tower defense game was first introduced on Windows Phone and garnered enough popularity to hit a million downloads across the platform. In celebration of that milestone, the developers have now ported CastleMine over to iOS. While the game's basic TD premise is relatively simplistic, its deep upgrade system, tons of missions and digging mechanic offer a lot worth checking out...

While tower defense is one of those genres that I can't seem to get enough of, even I have to admit that it's high-time for some innovation. Enter Go Home Dinosaurs [$4.99 (HD)], the latest title from Fire Hose Games and a TD game that looks to carve its own niche...
