Wizard Defense FREE

A game that seemed to slip past everyone. It's been really fun so far, similar to Missile Command only with a cool fantasy theme. The game is very polished, it even has some decent voice acting.

So far I can see there are only 3 spells, each using a certain amount of mana. You can rest to regenerate mana, but timing is key as enemies are constantly raining down. This adds to the game play as you must manage your mana while shooting at the incoming asteroid type things.

Pretty much, the graphics are nicely done in 3D and will rotate as they fall towards you.

According to the description they are from orc siege engines and you must help defend the castle under attack.

I'm all about perspective realism, but that blurry background is quite an eye-sore.

I don't know but I still prefer the original and First Contact.

Yeah First Contact is fun, but it can get boring since all you do is tap the incoming missiles to lock on. Here you have to aim and everything plus manage your mana.
