Best/Favorite Tower Defense game?

After burning out on the tower defense genre some years back, I find myself getting into it again. Currently enjoying Kingdom Rush Origins, and would appreciate recommendations on best or favorite like titles. And do I really have to pay twice foe KRO? If so, why bother with the Cloud. Saves, I suppose. But, I mean ... sheesh.

TD games that blew me away and ate so much of my time:

Crystal Siege (almost MOBA-like)
Castle Doombad
Over-the-Top Tower Defense

Alien Demons TD

I love Classic Tower Defense game.Type these keywords on Appstore and I found Alien Demons TD. It'sa solid,well-polished path winding TD with great gameplay. I've been having fun so far and felt that the resurgence of Classic Tower Defense is coming back.

Well, I cannot tell you which one is better but I can list some differences here:
The most significant one is that Alien Demons TD is Classic TD game and there are some others:
1. Alien Demons TD is a path winding TD game, you can lengthen the demons' maze using towers.
2. Invasions in Alien Demons is nonstop that you have to lenghthen maze, build towers and check-out new waves of enemies at the same time, kind of action game haha.
3. The theme and 3D graphics, so obvious.
4. Find it by yourself.
I am into classic, original TD game,path winding game, so I prefer Alien Demons TD but if someone like heroic TD game, kingdom Rush could be the best one.

There is a game from awhile back called "Star Defense" by ngmoco that I really enjoyed. I tried to find it in the App Store but it is gone, however, I can still download it from iCloud...also not sure if it is tower defense but "Anomaly: Warzone Earth" is pretty well polished.
