iTech App Review- Fieldrunners

Tower defense is probably one of the best known and enjoyed arcade-styled games on the planet. You could probably ask anyone what Tower Defense is and they could give you a detailed answer stating how you have to place turrets in a strategic fashion to stop the invaders from reaching your base. But what sets Fieldrunners apart from the literally millions of similar tower defense games out there? The only way to find this out is to test the game.

When you first start up the game, you will see a sleek and stylish menu. With a few more taps, you will be asked to choose from 6 different arenas, 2 are free, but the other 4 need to be unlocked via an in-app purchase of $1.29. This is one of the drawbacks of the game, but after you play on of the free maps, you will see that it is totally worth the price!

When you choose a map, it will take you to a beautifully rendered scene. This is your map. But where are all the tracks that the bad guys go on? I hear you ask. The answer to that is that Fieldrunners gameplay is quite different to normal TD games. Instead of having a curly path that you have to base your towers around, you have to make your own path with your towers. This gives Fieldrunners the extra edge and blows other TD games out of the water.

Apart from the traditional track, everything you would expect in a Tower Defense game is right where you would expect it; upgrading weapons, multiple weapon choices, waves of enemies, last minute dashes you name it, its there. Overall, this game has fantastic gameplay, but I must admit, it is pretty hard to play on iPods and iPhones, but on iPads, it's like a dream come true! It is really worth it and I would recommend it to everyone!
