Rome Defenders: The First Wave 3.1 5 14 14
Finally a Tower Defense game! 5 stars just for being a TD game. It's not the greatest out there but it offers a challenge and needs a fair bit of level replay to continue. Each level requires you to construct your towers at crucial points in order to attack and kill the enemy. There's a combination of flying and crawling 'bugs', each with their own surprises or weaknesses. Stars and points are collected along the way. The stars help you upgrade your tower's abilities in 'the shop'. Points collected allow you to upgrade your towers to the next level during game play. Beware!! Make sure to save your game progress during game play. If you don't continually save, and you die before completing the level, you will automatically go back to the previous saved point in the game. This could be 5 levels ago, so it pays to save as you go. Overall a fun, challenging little TD game. More please! August 6, 2016
really good game The game impresses with refreshing new ideas and good graphics. It is very varied with a progressive difficulty. The FX are well chosen and convey a harmonious atmosphere. The number of Level promises a long and good entertainment. August 9, 2016
A wonderful game If you liked Plants vs Zombies, then you are going to LOVE this game. The levels are challenging (lvl 14 took some doing and I had to think very differently). Place your weapons and defend your soldiers from incoming underworld monsters. I have now played all 20 levels on Casual - am trying for normal levels - hard game, but SO MUCH FUN October 25, 2016
Tower Defense game that really challenges I would like to give this game 5 stars, but it has some bugs that need to be worked out, mostly in graphics with tutorial windows that don't close when they should. Also, this is a very difficult game. I have been replaying levels to get stars to upgrade weapons and it takes a while to accumulate them. I like a good challenge, so I don't mind, but it can also be frustrating. August 10, 2016
Tough game This is a really tough game. I have played for hours and I am only on level 4. I can ALMOST win a level and then one enemy gets through. Collecting stars to upgrade is slow and tough. I guess you are expected to replay levels as many times as I have been. I also need to mention that it is an engrossing game and that the levels take quite a bit of time to play (unless you lose early). This isn?t a game to play right before bed or you?ll be dreaming strategy all night or sleepless worrying about it. This is not a fun game to play for a while and then move on to something else. You really have to work at winning. Maybe it is too hard. Still I recommend it with the caveat about the way it usurps time. August 10, 2016
Rome Defenders surprisingly good TD game Interesting tower defense game, with entertaining and new ideas. Different opponents and towers offer even more diversity. And such a variety of successful Level. It stands out well from the crowd at TD games. I like it very much. August 8, 2016
I can't beat level 14! I like a challenge and its nice to finally get a game I can't beat in an hour or two - but - I can't get past level 14. I've gone back through other levels and collected the coins (a very slow process). I've purchased the lightning bolt upgrade but I can't get it to work. The help section says it kills everything on the screen but it does nothing! So frustrating. I also have an entire page of locked items - with no instructions on what they are and how to unlock them. I'd love to see a walkthrough or discussion forum for this game but can't find one anywhere! I'm about ready to give up and I've never quit a game until I've beaten every level perfectly and have unlocked every possible upgrade/special weapon. VERY FRUSTRATED!!! September 17, 2016
Too Complicated To Be Fun I love Tower Defense Games, but this game just wasn't very fun because it had too much going on. Some of the maps have fixed paths that the enemy walks on, that won't allow you to place weapons there, other maps have no paths but allow you to place weapons to create paths and blockades. You must first purchase weapons, then they can be upgraded until they reach maximum capacity, there are cannons, crossbows, freezers and blade crosses and eventually you'll have access to all 18 available weapons. There are also 18 different types of enemies, some that are slow but deadly, fast and agile, highly aggressive and even enemies that fly. This isn't a bad TD game, it just has complicated features that take a while to get used to. For me, I think I like the the traditional TD games, they just seem more fun. August 11, 2016
Attempt At Cloning A Popular Title See the Big Fish forum for this game for the reviews & the complaints about it. I'm sad to see such a decline in quality around here. And dont let the obviously planted reviews fool you - this game is a mess. I was so excited to see a TD game that I nearly bought this outright. Thank goodness I did not. Will let others describe the exact details but I can say that The 1st Wave has a cross between very poor design, glitchy play (tutorial pop ups that do not disappear) & annoying processes (being unable to place weapons, & also the grid not showing up until you buy something and you cannot even see what an item does by mousing over it.... Should not have even made the cut. This is a shoddy game that seems like the sort of thing a fly by night mobile developer out for a quick buck would try to insert into a mobile app store. August 19, 2016
Not much fun I didn't buy this game, I downloaded the trial and only played about 10 minutes before I quit. It's not very fun at all. I was excited to see a time management game, and then it was just a big flop. August 28, 2016
