    My current favourite is Fieldrunners. Best tower defence game I’ve ever played (close second is PixelJunk Monsters for PSP).

    PixelJunk Monsters is my second favourite TD ever, beneath Comet Crash (PS3).

    That's more Castle Defence, isn't it? I've always seen TD's as pathmaking defence, whereas CDs are straight-path type defence. Either way, it's a great game :p Actually, I have PvZ in my TOWER DEFENCE folder on my iPod now that I think about it haha

    This is my TD folder, from best to not-so-best. (BTW, don't buy Crystal Defenders, it's ridiculously difficult)

    Defender Chronicles is easily my favorite for iDevices. Pixeljunk Monsters is the top one for me though.(PS3 & PSP versions)

    My favorite iPod TD would probably be Mikado Defenders, but it is also one of the hardest.

    My favorite is still ElementalMonsterTD. There are a lot of other great ones though. Check out the previous "best TD" threads.

    Sentinel Mars Defense

    ...and its sequel are both great. As is FieldRunners. I was really looking forward to Defender Chronicles, but I ended up not liking it at all. The whole powering up your character aspect doesn't fit in well, at least for me.

    Defender Chronicles beats all others I have tried. Its has great lasting appeal and plenty of levels. Its also really tough which is a great thing cos I always want to find that strategy that will allow me to beat a level. I love it so much. Plus all the items and upgrades is great too.

    Geodefense is great too just for the graphics which are awesome.

    geoDefense and geoDefense Swarm are definitely my favourite. Amazing stylised graphics, and I like the timing system - towers taking increasingly longer to upgrade, which seems realistic, and I like that you can call for the next wave early if you want. And you rarely ever find yourself in a situation with money piling up and an easy ending... it's touch-and-go whether you'll get through each level, usually (for me, anyway...!) I completed all levels of both games (eventually), but only just bought the DLC packs which are TOUGH!

    It's hard to top Pixel Junk's Monsters, as somebody mentioned here. But I think it's either Geo Defense or Fieldrunners on the iPhone. I was never that into Plants v Zombies, the horizontal gameplay just doesn't do it for me.

    For iphone/touch/pad I'd say:

    Best for variety, longevity and depth : TowerMadness
    Best for puzzle fans, or those who need a brain workout : GeoDefence
    Best take on the tower defence genre : Defender Chronicles (td + rpg)
    Best graphics in a TD game : Sentinel 2
    Best all-rounder : Fieldrunners

    PvsZ never felt like a TD game to me, but I'm sure it's probably classed as one, however, for those who don't own any TD games, I'd most likely recommend Plants vs Zombies first as any Popcap game has that extra special level of fun, friendliness and charm... I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it.

    EDIT: however I notice the lonely bee wasn't too keen, lol, I agree, the sideways playing style is odd... But I still think it's a decent buy for anyone who likes casual games.

    Thanks guys!!! After trying a almost all of those recommended :p, my two favourite is definitely:

    geodefense swamp
    towermadness

    Although PvZ is also pretty fun but I don't think it belongs to TD category.

    My favorite is probably geoDefense Swarm, but Towers in Space is excellent as well. It doesn't get mentioned as much, but it's definitely deserving.

    The Creeps is the best imo. Don't be fooled by the graphics, it's a very challenging game and fun to play. Especially on hard mode :)
