Iron Sea Defenders
Improved Graphics And I Love This Tower Defense Game!
I have always been a huge fan of TD games and it see seems they get better each time, I never tire of defending my castle. The goal is to strategically place cannons of different strengths and ranges on tower pads to defend the castle from the incoming enemy. As you destroy the enemy ships, you earn loot and anchor points. The loot is used to build and upgrade your cannons and the anchors are used to either build weapons on pads that require anchors only or to purchase upgrades in the workshop. There are several upgrades and more are added as you progress. Usually upgrades include wider cannon range, more damage by the cannons and a lower cost of cannons. You can also choose upgrades that give you a larger budget to start the level with, more loot awarded for enemy ships and even 5 points extra for castle health. There are 3 modes of difficulty, Easy, Normal and Hard, you can restart the level as many times as you want in order to earn 3 stars which are awarded by the amount of health you have at the end of all waves of attack (usually 6) There will also be bonuses that can be used such as missiles that you click on and use to slow down the enemy so the cannons can finish them off before reaching the castle. You may want to build a resource tower which does nothing to the enemy but produces money to buy more towers. When a wave is about to start, an icon will alert you as to which path the enemy will enter, if you click on the icon before the timer reaches 0, you earn extra points. There is a very good tutorial and you can play the Easy mode if you haven't ever played a tower defense game, and it's a very exciting and fast paced game so you are definitely missing out on a fun game. If you are a hard core TD gamer, you will certainly enjoy the Hard mode for a challenging game, enjoy!

Another Royal Defense type game - Challenging!
Love the challenge of this game, as a disclaimer TD games are my favorite, have played all the "royal" games until I've achieved 3 stars on every skill level. If you like the royal games you'll love this one - characters, machines, etc. aren't as cute, but it's much more challenging. Have fun ;)

Another in a series of hit tower games
I have just finished playing ?Mayhem? and already another game from that group is out. This game has some similar elements and some different ones along with some new quirks not in previous games. In Time Mayhem, one could accumulate rewards called DNA and use it to purchase towers where in Iron Sea the Anchors (reward) cannot be used that way. Anchors still are used to make towers stronger and cheaper and to increase loot from enemies, however.
For those of us who have played the earlier games, there is nothing really new enough to require much help from hints, but I am sure new players appreciate the hints. From earlier games I recognize most of the ?players?, both towers and enemies, but here they look different and may move differently. So the game is old and the game is refreshed. This game looks, so far, like it will be harder than some of its predecessors, but I think I can handle it, or have fun trying. This game is most similar to Fort Defense and Fort Defenders Seven Seas.

At first I didn't think it was going to be a good TD, it looked like it was geared more towards kids. However I liked it. It is challenging. I do recommend this if you like TD games. I think it is one of the better ones out there. It is a great way to pass time and keep you from getting bored.

blowing stuff up!
How could any tom-boy not be enchanted with a time management that has an easy level but is challenging and stuff gets blown up?! I am 45 but still a tom-boy at heart, my son says I am a "tom-man". In any case, this game was quite fun! One has opposing sea vessels that need to blown up befor thy get to "base". The graphics are clear and good. I played with sound off so my husband doesn't know what I'm up to. As soon as the demo was up, I was frustrated that I still had "stuff to blow up!"-- so I bought the game. There are many levels of difficulty so the ultra TM nerd can give it a go. Easy was stimulating enough for me.

Little to Challenge here
I like Games that I basically find hard to do.I managed this all the way through almost 90% on fast speed and did not loose one single life.
I have played all the others similar to this type so perhaps that is why and I know a lot complained that Invisible Threat for instance was too hard.
No unbeatable boss,no levels with no cash available,so little to work for at all.
Nothing to tax the brain or work out how to complete
But nicely done if you just want to chill and play

They only gives you unlucky 13 anchors each level, that's not enough to build a good defense. At least with fort defenders it gives you enough barrels to build up your defense. Sorry I bought it.

Not for the inexperienced
Generally, I wouldn't review a game I found to my disliking but this game proved to be impossible after only three levels! I've done moderately well with other "tower defense" games, so I wasn't expecting to be stymied so soon. Definitely not for anyone but the most expert.

Exactly the same game as Day D, with different graphics
I guess this company has hit on a formula they like, because this is an EXACT copy of the gamplay you'll see in Day D: Time Mayhem down to the level count, gun options, and power ups.
Of course this one was released very soon after Day D, since all they had to do was paint some pretty seafaring art to replace the dinosaurs.
Admittedly, it is a nice looking game, has a decent tutorial, and is fun to play...while it lasts, at 20 levels it's pathetically short.
