Townrs Defender $4.99

I've searches the TD forums and I didn't find the thread about this one.

Does anybody know if this game is worth the price of 3,99 Euro?




When we settled this land there were no signs of these men… these monsters. They came in waves, a tide of destruction that we have failed to contain. Our warriors have fallen, and our defensive towers have taken great damage. The town gate is strongly built, but I fear it will not hold them for long. If we are breached, this settlement and its town’s folk will be lost.

Please, I implore you. Take up our cause and wield your magic against the horde that punishes us so dearly. Know that their numbers are growing, and it seems likely that the conflict has only begun. The monsters have declared war on us all.

You must help us.


Townrs Defender is a fresh take on the Hero Defense genre. Defend the gate against waves of attackers using our unique positional combat system. All abilities are gesture based: a simple flick will cast a fireball!


- Play hero defense on the iPhone and iPod touch
- Defend the town gate against 11 enemy types each with unique abilities
- Explore a vibrant world filled with face paced action
- Select from multiple weapons such as Cyclone Shield, Meteor Wand, and Plague Sword
--- Use training points to customize your weapon
--- Unlock more magical abilities (and gestures) as you level
- Strategically fight your foes
--- Lead your enemies away from the gate to give it time to repair
--- Ambush enemies at strategic points defended by guard towers
--- Use teleporters to quickly navigate the surrounding area
--- Use timing and positioning to gain an advantage
- Choose between Easy, Medium, and Hard difficulties for additional challenges

The graphics don't look bad.
But it just doesn't seem to interest me.

It's actually a pretty different - it's not a Tower Defense at all. You control a hero and use several 'gestures' (spells) to defend against the oncoming enemies.

The graphics are actually pretty good - it's not 3d, so you can't change the perspective, the the rendered 2d stuff is amazing.

It's a pretty hard game right now. I can beat East, and almost beat Medium. You mileage may vary! Unlocking the new spells and heroes is fun, though. Hopefully they'll add more with updates!

I'm the lead developer for Townrs Defender -- I've created an announcement thread that you can use to ask me or my partners questions, offer advice, request features, etc. This is our first game, so any advice on how to get the word out, and what information you'd need, is greatly appreciated.

The point of making a video is well taken - we're working on that today. I'll post back when we have gameplay videos posted.

Oh, sorry for my mistake in the Name of the Thread...

I cannot change it, but the admin can do that for sure.
