There’s a new game on the block, of iOS that is, and it’s called Dead Defence by PlayFlock. Not exactly a new or unique experience in the gaming scene, it offers the all-familiar venue of defending the last standing humans, huddled close in fear at bases all over the world, waiting to be saved from an onslaught of zombies. Where did the zombies come from? Someone or something unleashed a virus that resulted in a metamorphosis of the alive to the living dead. Humans and creatures alike have been transformed by this virus to hunt down and destroy those who have not yet succumbed.
Dead Defence App Review
As described above, the world has undergone a tragic transformation where most of its population has been transmuted from living to not quite dead. The zombies, in the form of ex-human or ex-creatures, now stalk the earth in search of bases in which survivors have taken refuge. Your job, as the player, is to take orders, build defense towers at these bases and destroy the enemy that seeks to destroy the human race.
It’s a race against time to defend each base and eliminate the zombies before they eliminate all humans. As you kill, you earn points that you bank. The points, or currency, afford you opportunities to enhance your current towers or to unlock and purchase new and more advanced ones. The advanced towers end up being a must, because you will need the advanced artillery as you move from beginner to advanced stages of the game and defend against more advanced creatures.
Not only do you not get a great armament to start with, but to get more advanced armaments and towers straightaway, you have to pay up a good chunk of money to unlock all available towers in one shot. It will cost you $10.99 to gain immediate access to all types of towers, should you wish to have them at your disposable from the get-go. Another minus is the acuity with which placement of the towers is required in order to defend with accuracy. It seems that there are “special” locations on the base that make defense optimal. Finding that spot can be tricky, and makes for a challenge that may drive some players away.
Ok, so you have to “work” to get to those great towers that help you better in your quest to defend and save the human race. That might not be such a bad thing if you are truly looking for a challenge. It might be a bit more difficult, maybe unfair, with how the game has been set up; but, if you are die hard gamer, and a tower defender at that, then you have to give this one a try, just for some variety and for a taste of something different. Nothing is for free, and getting a game for free, just for fun – who can turn that down? Give it a shot; see what it’s got and maybe the upgrades will transform it into something monumental!
