Defense Zone is a relatively newcomer to the tower defense genre. It offers a typical gameplay where you build defensive towers on strategic locations around your main base. In Defense Zone 2, the formula is practically intact but with added weaponry and more realistic backdrop. Developed by Artem Kotov, this game is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Tower defense is an iconic gaming genre loved by millions of mobile gamers. It is a game that combines strategic thinking and the wise deployment of defensive troops and towers. The genre is formulaic but it can still offer hours of exciting gameplay.
With Defense Zone 2, you get the typical tower defense game. But this time, gameplay is set in a realistic war zone with a palpable militaristic vibe. The game shines among other TDs by using commonly known weapons system such as flame throwers, missiles, tanks, rifle men, machine guns, rocket launchers, and carpet-bombing air force.
By avoiding cartoonish super weapons, the game forces you to balance your weaponry, resources, and deployments in order to defeat swarms of invading grunts and tanks. Gameplay requires real tactics as you try to hinder any offensive action with the use of the right weapon.
What this game lacks is a defined storyline. It takes you directly into the war zone and all you need to do is to put up a strong defense to defeat the invading army. But the lack of storyline does not diminish the excitement and hardcore action of the game. As you advance through different levels, you will encounter increasing numbers of enemy swarms. The key to your success is brilliant tactical planning as you try to balance your resources in order to deploy more weapons and build effective fighting towers.
