    Those willing to dive in to a tower defense game that's ready and willing to be deep should check it out as well. This is one of the best $2.99 (plus in-app purchases for currency) values on the App Store.

    It's light-hearted but captivating, and there a difficulty setting for everyone, whether you're the committed tower-defense nut, the kind of person who likes to think they're better at these games than they really are, or the younger game who'll get a few hours of entertainment from assaulting the balloons with ease.

    Bloons 5 TD doesn't introduce anything new to the tower defense genre, but it's polished and fun.

    A game that seems like it's trying to wheedle even more cash out of you despite its base price tag. It's still fun, and one of the better examples of tower defense on the market, but it's hard to escape the impression that Bloons TD 4 wasn't so piratical in its drive to urge you to spend premium currency.

    Out from BTD4, this game has improved in almost every level, with more customizable stuff. I could play this for hours before even thinking about getting up. Expand

    Tower defense games are many and varied, and Bloons Tower Defense games are definitely some of the best. Having played BTD5 for iOS, I can say that it is a very fun and enjoyable game. There are many levels with enough variation to keep you interested for a long time.

    However if you do start to get bored then you can always have a go at the many missions that the game offers, with varying degrees of difficulty. There are literally several hundred missions to keep you entertained and occupied, and the choice is randomised, so you are able to choose whether or not you want to do a particular mission at a certain time.

    In game currency however is quite hard to come by, and purchasing it separately as a micro-transaction is a downside to the game, as the cash can be very handy in your game, as well as helping to extend the playability of the game. If you like the game enough, buying the in game cash is worth it to expand your BTD5 experience.

    Overall it is a very good game, I have had no problems with it crashing (running iOS7) and it seems to be a very stable app. Tower Defense games are randomised according to how you choose to play so for the price that it is on the App Store, it is definitely worth it for the time you can get out of it.
