Awesome that it's free, but after playing, I would have paid for it!! We need more games like this! ONLY complaint, if it is one, is some achievements didn't unlock after numerous tries. Def a game worth playing!!! 🙂🙂🙂

The best Tower Game for free.

Since it was free, I cannot complain. Very fun, lots of replay value and it has both solo and multiplayer paths. A very good game just short of greatness.

best TD I have ever seen in awhile

Fantastic tower defense game!

I just love this game! I've played it more than any other TD game, even more than some of my main games. I enjoy looping through it again and again with new game plus getting more and more tower upgrades. It's a wonderful game just to quickly jump into if you only have a little time or great to play if you have a lot. I love all the different tower customization, being able speed and slow the progress, and to be able to skip back segments if you messed up. If you love tower defense games, this is a must, at least to try.

This is a good game overall. It reminds me very much of the original starcraft for PC's custom online tower defense maps. I havent played something like this in a while. The voices in the story however i could live without, they are very cheesy and annoying. OVERALL: WORTH THE MONEY

Needs more maps, modes, and DLC.

Great game, but gets boring after a while. Needs more maps, and DLC, but what I'd really LOVE to see is a survival mode. Grinder & Super Grinder with endless waves of stronger aliens until they get all of the cores. See how long you can keep the last remaining core. Survival mode.

Very good tower defense game

Been playing tower defense like games on Android for a long while. This is a very nice one. A story line. Wide skill setting so you can have fun or be chalanged, and some tricks i've not seen in most other tower games.
