Are you tired of tower defense games or just not interested at all ? (Poll)

Looking at the current top 100 games in the appStore, I noticed there are only 2 tower defense game on the list (Field runners and geo Defense), and both are few month olds already. Field Runners is 9 month old already, and geo Defense is 5 month old.

So the conclusion is there are no recent tower defense game in the top 100 games list. That is an interesting fact.

The purpose is to find out the public thoughts about tower defense games on the iphone. And this is the correct forum for general game and discussion, isnt it?

You have passed the newbie test. I will no longer loathe you now

I have the same stance as I did in the "I'm sick of retro games" thread, I honestly don't care how many there are, I just ignore them. As for playing them, I get ridiculously bored just watching the tiny little towers shoot the tiny little aliens. I'm more of an RTS person.

I've never come across TD genre until I had my iTouch and to be honest, I couldn't stand how I have to constantly monitor the game while I'm left with little things to do. Think I'm more of a action game guy.

I enjoy TD games, looking through my list, I currently own:

7 Cities
Battlefield
Defender Chronicles
Dungeon Defense
Elemental TD
FieldRunners
geoDefense
Sentinel
Sentinel 2
SweetWater Defense
The Creeps
TowerMadness

That's 12 TD games currently ON my iPod. Of those, I play all of them a few times per week except Tower Madness and Battlefield (because the others are better).
