Not for Noices
this game would be good for experienced players but not for beginners. Instructions are unclear and game play is frustrating for those of us playing for the first time.

Mac Users Don't Bother
Don?t bother buying the Mac version. The first hour trial will be fun, making you want to purchase Fort Defense. You can finish the first world properly. However, when you get to stage 2, Arctic world, you?ll learn that the Mac version does not let you choose difficulty (easy, medium, hard) and you can?t earn the necessary barrels like the PC version so it is impossible to play. By level 2-10 it is impossible to begin with enough resources to survive so you?ll be defeated every time. You?ll end up frustrated and angry you wasted your money and time going to that point.

I like challenges, but this game had no story line, no challenges, no good tutorials. I've tried almost every new game, but this is one of the worst. But that's my opinion!

Don't get the MAC version!!!
I really wish I had read all the reviews before I bought it. An earlier review pointed out that you can't choose the difficulty level (easy - hard) on the Mac version. The big problem with that is you really have to go back and complete earlier levels on various levels to get the money (in the form of barrels) to buy the upgrades you need to be successful at later levels. It's not just that it's challenging without the upgrades it is IMPOSSIBLE! So besides not getting nearly as many levels to play you also can't complete the ones you have. (And you can't go on to new levels until you complete the previous one.)
Big Fish, you guys really shouldn't sell the Mac version of this game. This was a huge disappointment. Really, please consider taking it down.
