    This sequel either improves on or extends the original in every way.

    But this sequel takes what was already an excellent game and cleans it up in all the ways that count.

    Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia offers something more than the first episode, though it's got the same, solid gameplay. The animations are still choppy, but the overall experience is really enjoyable.

    Very simple, not hugely original, but extremely compelling tower defence fare.

    One of the beefiest tower defense games on the App Store. If you have lots of time to kill, this is three bucks well spent.

    People that missed the first title will get their hands on this and find it to be extremely unique, and people that loved Defender Chronicles for being great in 2009 will get more of what they liked.

    I have to conclude that the formula was perfect three years ago, and the original still goes down as one of those games that made me believe in iOS as a proper platform for deep games.

    Defender Chronicles II offers lots of loot and skills, but the RPG elements don't necessarily make a good tower defense game better.

    As an iOS title that offers literally dozens and dozens of hours of engrossing entertainment, it is hard not to recommend Defender Chronicles II: Heroes of Athelia to avid fans of the tower defense genre.

    Defender Chronicles 2 should satisfy those that want a unique spin on tower defense, or were clamoring for a sequel years after the innovative original game, though it is something of a flawed title.

    Tower defense fans and those who liked the first game should find more than enough content to keep themselves busy. While the first game stood out however, this sequel suffers from some of the design pitfalls we've seen in the TD genre.
