Defenders: Tower Defense Origins reviews and comments

I have to join the People, unfortunately, it's really all too small be it on the iPhone 8 Plus or iPad Air. It would be great to pick this up. Then I would have a Proposal for the Game. It would be a lot more Fun if you had an endless Mode where you can choose the Maps yourself, where you can also earn some Silver and Experience points. Maybe you take that to Heart and put that into play. Apart from that, I personally would have nothing more objectionable, the Game top is a lot of Fun. Thank you for your Attention. Greeting Ilyas Hello! If you like Defenders and you want to get more from the game, we recommend that you play Defenders 2. Now we are actively supporting and developing the second part. We hope you enjoy it:-) Link to Defenders 2:

What about it? It's a masterpiece. A little crude, but still a wonderful game. The mechanics are typical from tower defense, but they are the cards that make everything more interesting: the towers and the effects available are cards, which can be updated, bought and sold, generally are won after the most difficult levels. The game has mechanics that advise purchases in the APP, but not excessively and especially the game ranks away fine even without using money. A note of merit then goes to the graphics: cartoon style and rich in particles, dynamic shadows (all towers and enemies have their shadow rendered in real time, and when there are fifty monsters on the screen is spectacular enough to see ) and well-made textures. Why four stars then? Playing on the IPhone 5 I noticed some flaws: sometimes crashes at the opening, or crashes in the game and closes (rare, but it happens), the textures sometimes flicker on more complex objects, but nothing terrible. I have Not yet managed to get it to work with AirPlay, as soon as I open it crashes. Regarding The requirements: on iPhone 5 No problem, so I do not see how it could have on the iPhone 5s or 6, the consumption of RAM is frugal: to eye a hundred MB, but beware of the battery: the most rich sequences of towers and monsters consume a lot.
