Radiant Defense is an excellent game for Windows Phone of the Tower Defense genre, where you will find a very dynamic gameplay, fancy decor, exceptional graphics and great music. The game has the only one task which is to prevent the enemy forces from penetrating your territory marked with a glowing spiral. In the first few missions even one enemy passed through your defense is enough to lose. Further you will be given a small indulgence, and you can allow yourself to see the whites of a few enemies' eyes, but for that you will be deprived of some of your stars.
Game featuresThere is a huge amount of weapons in this game but in order to get access to any of them you have to buy the game. The events of the game is clearly unfolding far beyond our solar system, for this speak not only weapons in the form of lasers and blasters, but also the appearance of enemy soldiers that look like jelly or marine fauna members. Each one of your defense towers can be upgraded several times, and for the first time this becomes both necessary and available in the second game. The thing is that you won't have enough money for a new gun, and it will be impossible to mock the enemies' push without the upgrade.
Modernization lies in an increase in the gun power, firing rate, and the killing range. When the playing field is filled with too weak weapons, you have a chance to sell it to make room for more powerful ones. In the third round of the first mission you will again run out of money to buy new weapons or upgrade existing guns. What do you do in this case?
Advanced features in Radiant DefenseIt's very simple. It turns out that in addition to weapons you can also set on the playing field platforms which it will be furtherly possible to place towers with lasers or cannons on. So, the platform can be positioned so that the road which the enemy army uses to get to your borders will change direction. Place the platform in such a way that will force the enemy to wind around your guns for a long time, and then there will be enough time to kill all the soldiers.
ResumeWhile building new platforms you need to remember about the killing range of your weapons. Otherwise, you might take away enemy soldiers so far that none of your guns will reach them, and you will lose. In total, you will face 10 missions and 300 waves of enemy attacks which can be defended with 9 types of weapons. Radiant Defense has a very bright and colorful neon-style graphics, and the whole gameplay is accompanied with fascinating music of the future.
