Deep tech tree, modern graphics, interesting plot
Gameplay could have been more exciting
One of the most polished tower defense games, Anomaly Defenders manages to stand out among its peers through its fast paced gameplay, amazingly detailed graphics and interesting features. The game even has an in depth tech tree that players can make use of to give them more customization and a bit of additional assistance for each level.
The game takes on a more action packed and fast paced approach at the tower defense genre. Enemies can not only target your own structures, but they will also adapt and attack your resource generating buildings to weaken your defense. If things get too hot for you, then there is always the option of pressing the pause button and planning your strategy accordingly, before resuming the action. The gameplay consists mostly of building structures on predetermined plots and watching them demolish all enemies as they charge through each lane. The player only intervenes when upgrades are called for, or when special weapons need to be triggered.
The graphics are outstanding for a tower defense game. While most such games have opted for comic and simplistic graphics, Anomaly Defenders has opted for a more serious tone. Each level is highly detailed down to the smallest little thing.
Overall Anomaly Defenders for Android is much more in depth and action packed than your average tower defense game, however quality comes at a price. The app has a steeper price than most games on the platform, however if you enjoy tower defense games, or if you want the conclusion to the story, then it will be worth it.
