Tweet Defense tosses ridiculous killer zombies and your twitter stats into a tower defense blender for a delicious brainy, viral juice mix.

10 incredible levels that build from easy walk in the park to devastating horror show
5 whacked out enemy types including the viral marketing zombie and the lumbering massive Blubberbie
6 tower types including the new brain shock tower that turns your enemies against each other and the unique BOOSTER tower that lets you use selected twitter celebs to boost your tower stats.

We wondered what it would be like to take your social network and all your activities and turn it into a game.

This isn't just a twitter client that lets you tweet your score. This is a full on tower defense game that uses your friend list and your tweeting activity to impact how powerful your towers are.

The story:
A lethal marketing virus has turned half the world's population into brain eating zombies. Now they are after you and your friends' brains!

All you have on hand are every day items and an internet connection. Reach out to your Twitter friends to help you build defense towers out of every day items. Stop the zombies from penetrating your home base and eating your grey matter!

With your friends manning the towers and your brilliant battle strategies the zombies don't stand a chance or do they?

TIPS

Remember to upgrade your towers to have an easier time defeating the zombies.

It sounds like a great concept, and the graphics look decent, especially the UI. I'll wait for someone to TOFTT first.
And well done getting mentioned on the GeekBox podcast about a month ago.

Are waves randomized at least somewhat in Endless (like the specific lineup of beasties approaching)?

Just tried.

Q1. Why do I need to enter twitter account everytime I play the game?
Q2. If I enter the name and login twitter, I will crash when start a game. why?

I can play the game without login twitter. Is that mena I cannot use the boost up function?

I haven't had a problem with my twitter account integration yet, although I didn't log out and back in from the game to see if I had to re enter my credentials.

The thing I am finding is that.. I don't "suck" at TD games. I am not incredible, but I do ok. I can't get past the first level of this without losing some points at my home base... No matter what I try.. Dunno what I could be missing..

Based on how many followers you have, how many people follow you and how many tweets you have done, you will get bonuses to your towers and defenses.

This game currently has too many issues for me to want to play it. I don't even know where to begin with my list..
