Toy Defense 3 - Fantasy
What happened To The Little Green Plastic Soldiers?
I was disappointed when I realized that those little toy soldiers that made the previous two games epic, weren't involved. With that being said, this is still a good TD game, but pales in comparison to the original Toy Defense games. The goals are the same as most Tower Defense games, protect the castle at all costs. To protect the castle you need to strategically place the correct weapons onto the correct towers. There are archers, flame throwers (Greek Fire) ballistics, and even a Mage which is able to attack the enemy by ground or air! After each level you earn up to 3 gold stars and you use your points to buy upgrades. You have to first upgrade the weapon of choice which then allows you to continue purchasing upgrades in different areas such as a stronger defense or wider range and each category can be upgraded several tiers. The weapons can still be upgraded by rank, strength and range during the game, and you will also need to repair towers as they get damaged, but if you upgrade the weapon you don't have to worry about the towers health, new tower, renewed health. Every battle comes in waves of usually 7 different troops and if you click the wave button before the countdown of the next wave, you receive extra points. There are two available modes of difficulty, casual and hard and there is a somewhat vague tutorial which simply tells you to click here and build this weapon here, everytime a new weapon is available. There are 69 achievements or trophies to earn as well. If you forget about the toy soldiers (I know, what were they thinking!) I think you will find this game entertaining, but in my opinion, if it ain't broke don't fix it, should have been applied, enjoy!

Fun! Not the typical Tower Defense Game
Just enjoyed the demo. Really like tower defense games and this one offers some new/different angles that make it enticing. Am going to buy.

If you enjoyed the first two, this one will not disappoint
Played the first two and this one is just as good. As soon as I am able to, I'm definitely getting the full version...fantastic job as usual Melesta for coming out with another awesome tower defense game

This game is well worth the price paid. I love the way each upgrade splits into several other upgrades, deciding which upgrade to make is the hardest bit. It is a difficult game and lots of lovely levels. Placement of defense characters is a key point to winning although in the later levels 3 stars is difficult to achieve. Addictive and a lot of fun, you'll love it. I haven't played such a fabulous time management game in a long period of time. Well done, developers.

LOVE TD GAMES and this one Great!
I've played the first two, and this one is my favorite of the three. Instead of the clunky WWII era vehicles, these are fantasy types (dragons, etc) and much more fluid. I'm so happy to see BF adding more TD games instead of the same old HOG games they have been doing. There are two modes of play so even those who are experts should feel a challenge. I'm glad I bought this.

If you love tower defense games, give this one a try.
I LOVE tower defense games. Love them. And I just spent a few days playing this one through to the end.
PROS: Like many of the tower defense games, there's a definite level of challenge with this one. You basically want to get through the various levels without taking *any* damage to your castle. If you finish the level with zero damage, you earn three "spendable" stars (more on that later). Something less than no damage but minimal damage earns two stars, and surviving the level without dying yet taking a lot of damage earns one star. Stars are used in the store to upgrade the four types of weapons you can use to stave off the attacks, as well as to upgrade your castle and your spells.
The first two chapters were challenging. I had to get through them as best as I could to accumulate as many stars as possible while continually upgrading the weapons available to me. I didn't get through the first or second chapters with three stars on all levels; but I was able to go back as I upgraded weapons, spells, and the castle itself and re-play levels to achieve 3 stars. That's really the trick here: you want to earn as many stars as possible and backtrack to replay levels with a less than perfect result to ensure you are upgrading as much as possible as quickly as possible. Once you do that, while still mostly challenging, you can get through the levels perfectly. There's also a BIG bonus at the end of a chapter if you've earned three stars on every level. You also earn additional bonus stars for completing a variety of actions.
The graphics are good, the levels are interesting and mostly challenging, and it's generally fun to keep upgrading weapons in the store and then placing and upgrading them on the battlefield to see what their capabilities are.
CONS: It doesn't appear to me that you can earn enough stars to achieve all of the upgrades. I completed the game with three stars on every level, yet still fell just slightly short of fully upgrading my very last weapon, which is annoying. It could be that there are other upgrades / secrets I didn't discover, but I don't know - it would seem to me that a perfect game should yield enough stars to achieve ALL of the upgrades.
Also, it *can* get a little repetitive. Once you earn enough upgrades to get through levels with 3 stars, the challenge is somewhat diminished, which is the only reason I gave it four stars instead of five. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it and think it's one of the better games available in this genre. It has more levels than Fort Defense and others in that series, and it was interesting and fun!

i realize this is a TD game...but it just misses the mark for me. i bought it on the strength of the first two, TD 2 being the better. and i love fantasy and fairy tales, but this game is just boring.
i enjoyed the 'little green men' and the way those first games were played much more than this one. it just lacked the 'can't wait to play' aspect i found with the others.
i wish i'd played the demo longer as i would have realized it doesn't hold the same appeal as the first two...i certainly wouldn't have wasted a credit on it if i had.
for some people this game will be just fine, so i will recommend it, as it isn't really bad, just not as good as the first two.
