Hey renton check the newly released game thread for Defence hero, it looks really nice and there is also Dark lords that they refer to on the thread, haven had a chance to check them out but they look really nice, perhaps better than crystal war

Yeah I was going to say the same thing - people mentioned in the above Dark Lords thread how it reminded them of Crystal Wars. I haven't seen either personally, so I can't confirm.

Aside from the new game that just came out (Defense Hero) there's Dark Lords, Empires at War, Trenches, Stenches, Cartoon Wars, Ancient War, War Evolved, Army Wars Defense, 2012 Counter Attack, 2012 Zombies vs Aliens, Armageddon, Xenowars. Have fun.

I have most of these and they're pretty good but Crystal War is one of the best.

Now Playing: iStunt 2, Monster Trouble, Zombie Runaway, Stylish Sprint, Grim Joggers, Holy Moly Dragons, Fight Night Champion, NBA Jam, Rat On a Skateboard, Puzzle Quest 2, Jungool, Super Stick Golf, Smoody, Gravity Guy.

Dark Lords is good, Crystal War has more enemies and bigger more colorful graphics. Dark Lords has its own style of graphics and atmosphere which is pretty cool. They are both engaging enough to keep playing.

Good question - maybe a derivative of the Tower Defense genre?
