    Tower defense games are a dime a dozen, but Defense Technica stands slightly above its peers with its modern presentation and some challenging new twists.

    That kind of consistent progression and steady experiential learning is the crux of the game and it’s here in spades. While not quite as good as the truly exceptional TD games I’ve found online in years past, but Defense Technica definitely worth its budget price.

    Defence Technica in its current state is by no means perfect, so it’s very encouraging to see the developers actively listening to feedback from their audience. Working with players has enabled them to patch the game on the fly, rebalancing to make it more appealing to a casual audience, but also ensuring hardcore fans are still tested.

    Defense Technica is just your average tower defense game. It’s an amusing game, with easy to master controls. The towers could be more diverse and the A.I. isn’t that good.

    Defence Technica is a very difficult old school game able to entertain tower defence lovers. It was presented as the `next big thing` in his genre, but at the end of the day, it doesn't invent anything.

    Defense Technica is a simple and effective Tower Defense game, without any visual and technical ambitions. It could have been more beautiful and innovative in its genre.

    Defense Technica is a bland, run-of-the-mill affair. It brings almost nothing new to the genre and relies on tried and tested mechanics.

    Awesome game. I love the difficulty, rather than being able to beat every level on the first try and be done with it. There's also weather that can change, making a few types of towers less effective, which encourages diversity in your build instead of building 1 type of tower you like. Expand

    Good graphic with interesting gameplay from a little Korean developer team. The soundtrack is also very good! Very challenging game! The devs are with their community, and they will release in the near-future free updates, and maybe a free expansion! There are many towers and upgrades! The only, I miss, i can't rotate the screen! A uniqe tower defense game! Expand

    I changed my rating and updated my review because the devs responded quickly to the big thing people disliked about this game. You used to have to mouse over little cubes that were dropped by enemies when they died, but now that is no longer the case. All resource-gathering is automatic now.

    Visually, this game is a copy of Defense Grid, but it does look nice. Another nice feature is the ability to upgrade towers with an upgrade tree. It costs medals to upgrade towers. You earn medals by doing well on boards, so there's some incentive and reward to replay boards for higher scores.

    The game starts a little slow, but it gets more interesting as you go, especially as you unlock more tower upgrades and the boards get more challenging. Overall, this is a very fun tower defense game!

    For a defense tower game fan Defense Technica has enough depth and variety for an enjoyable experience. The graphics are nice and shiny. Would be nice if it had a community level editorcreator. But i shall wait until Defense Grid 2 for that. Collapse

    I feel a 5 is somewhat generous for this one. It's impressive in how many ways they miss the mark of what makes for an enjoyable tower defense game. There's little introduction or explanation to gameplay concepts. For example, the 4th level introduces its first weather effect, except it doesn't really tell you when this is happening, or what its effect is. You have to go out of your way to find such simple things.
    You know what other amazing feature it possesses? Enemies drop a cube of additional resources upon death, which you are required to hover your mouse over to collect. Maps become several screens large even from the first level, so if you create a few killzones, you have to constantly cycle between them to scavenge your rewards. It's kind of ludicrous in a terrible way, honestly.

    I would best describe Defense Technica as a half-hearted mash-up of Defense Grid (in look, feel, and mechanisms [you quickly acquire what is, essentially, the orbital laser exactly towers pop out of the ground in little boxes, etc]) and Kingdom Rush (towers are limited, but gain upgrade paths). Maybe somewhere in there is a kernal of a good idea, but it's not easily accessable, and it's hugely unpolished.

    Sadly, this is a purchase I regret.

    Not really much to say, everything looks like we all seen before in other tower defense games. This is so much look a like Defense Grid. For the price of 13.99 euros or 13.99 US dollars this game is good to skip. To keep thing short, when price of this game drop off then you go and buy it if there is nothing else to buy. Expand
