  • Summary: [DSiWare] Army Defender is an action shooter in which players must defend their base against enemy attacks by controlling a machine gun tower designed to eradicate enemy waves. As the player levels up, the enemy becomes more and more numerous and well-equipped. Attackers include soldiers, tanks, paratroopers, helicopters, jet fighters, bombers and elite commandos. Depending on the enemy type (red or green), players must switch between ammunition colors. The machine gun tower will fire where the player taps the touch screen. Power-ups are made available on a regular basis when a super bomber delivers them onto the base. When a power-up is retrieved, players will be able to upgrade their tower for a limited amount of time. Upgrades include flamethrowers, rocket launchers or concussion grenades that will help contain enemy progression. [Nintendo] Expand

  1. It's cheap, it's cheerful and it's relatively compelling. [Jan 2010, p.85]
  2. It does a good job of bringing the popular "defense" game to DSiWare and is fun to play.
  3. A cute if unsophisticated castle defence game, Army Defender is fun to play but doesn't offer much of a challenge.

    Army Defender is pretty much all you can ask for, a cheap and simple timewaster that can be replayed as much as you want. There isn't a whole lot of different stuff in it but what's there works well. You have to aim precisely and quickly to both keep your combo going and your wall healthy, the powerups give you precious seconds of wiping out all those enemies that were so much trouble before and timing your "fury" bombs right is important. My only complaint would be the length of a full game, if you really try to play until you run out of lives a game can last 30+ minutes which is a bit too long for a quick play on the commute and I often end the game before I've lost all lives (which of course isn't good for highscore hunting).

    this is a fun game because you get new upgrades get to expert it's a cheap game and fun I like it because you have so much life until you die but what I don't like is you have to turn the system Expand
