Press Quotes
"...its one of the most fun, polished and addictive games on the App Store." God is a Geek, 10/10

"...probably the best tower defense game I've ever played." iMore

"...its practically full-to-bursting with content." 148Apps, 4.5/5

"...funny, addictive and a great pick up and play game." App-Score, 9/10.

Guard your ship as you mine for the precious Spice in each of the 55 levels, spread across 5 different environments, from jungle to arctic tundra. Use your mined resource to purchase new weapons, upgrades and more. Dont worry

Spice Bandits features a multiplayer mode like no other tower defense game has to offer. Play in all-out war with 8 player online battles! Tactics, strategy, skill (and a little luck) will determine the victor.

Destroy the attacking force with your advanced alien weaponry. Choose from six tower classes and bolster your defenses with 54 (yes 54) different upgrades!

You are sure to fall in love with the comical little Spice hoarding aliens as they attempt to take over the world. Look out for some hidden easter eggs on the world map too. Tower defense has never had this much character!

Am I the only one who can't even get to the tutorial? The game says that i need to train in the underwater base but i can't see it on the map!
Is there a bug or am i just blind?

killercow, Sorry about that, we fixed the issue, and everything should be fine now. You will need to completely restart the app via the multitasking pane if it doesn't get un-stuck by itself.

pavarotti2007, Yes, there are optional IAP spice purchases + you can remove ads. All content (totally!) is available free of charge if you choose not to pay anything.

Have fun!
