On August 1, the iPhone and iPad versions of Kingdom Rush: Frontiers [$2.99 / $4.99 (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 [$2.99]. 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 [$2.99 / $4.99 (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 / $2.99 (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...

Firehose Games's PC Tower Defense Game 'Go Home Dinosaurs' Hits iPad Tonight

Heads up: Firehose Games's tower defense title, Go Home Dinosaurs, is currently worming its way through international App Stores. It'll be available alongside a bunch of other brand new games around 11PM EST here in the states. As we've covered before, it will be launching at $4.99, which seems like a good deal for a pretty fleshed out game...

Being a creep ain't all that bad. Well, at least, that's what the Anomaly series has taught me. If you're not familiar, these are tower offense games. Both have you play as the horde of dudes descending on a bunch of turrets instead of the other way around. It's a neat twist that literally turns the genre on its head. And if you haven't seen or played either, now's a good time to jump on the train. Both Anomalies, Earth [$3.99 / $1.99 / $3.99] and Korea [$3.99], are on sale for a limited time. ..

PC Tower Defense Game 'Go Home Dinosaurs' Coming To iPad This May

Firehose Games's PC tower defense game, Go Home Dinosaurs, is a game about protecting an army of gopher's midsummer stash of BBQ from a toothy, slow-walking horde of prehistoric foes. Let that sink in for a moment. In the upbeat, ridiculous world of Go Home, gophers and dinosaurs come together to fight over delicious meat after the dinosaurs try to take said meat from the gophers. It's a crazy conceit, but it works because Firehose embraces it totally and molds a uniquely irreverent look and feel for a tower defense game around it. Also, Go Home isn't slouch where it counts: mechanically, it's a solid TD game...

Foursaken Media's Block Fortress [$1.99] is one of those games that could last you forever. It plops you into a Minecraft-like block-based sandbox, tasks you with creating the most impenetrable fortress possible out of those blocks, and then sends wave after wave of enemies in to see if your creation will indeed stand up to the test. Oh, and while these enemies are attacking you're thrust face-first into the action by dropping into your created map in first-person mode, allowing you to help blast away at the baddies yourself. It's pretty great stuff...
