Crashsite Defense (by Gifted but Crazy Studios) is a tower defense game with a funny storyline, a variety of defense turrets that are uniquely upgradeable and many additional special defensive units as well. In a game app, the mix of humor and good gameplay typically equals a winner, and for me this game delivers not only a funny story, but a very entertaining and unique Tower Defense (TD) game as well. The storyline features an inept captain (bafoon) as the main character and a bright Information Officer who always tries to help him, but he only listens to himself — which is obviously where he goes wrong, and it turns out bad, but helps the game to unfold nicely.
The TD gameplay is a bit different than most TD games. This game uses a spaceship as both your tower to protect and area housing your defense turrets, which is rather different for a TD game. There are 8 available turret areas in the game, but this can be increased through in app purchase (up to 15). There are also a variety of turrets (missile, cannon, and laser) that come with the FREE game, but you can unlock the Tesla turret through in app purchase. A unique stock turret that comes with the game is a technology turret, which is a passive and non-attacking turret. However, this turret is very valuable and has multiple areas you can upgrade to increase your other turrets’ damage, armor, and other capabilities.
All turrets can be upgraded in 3 different areas that are all unique to that turret, which makes for a highly customizable TD gaming experience with lots of replay value. The overall model for in app purchases is slightly unusual for this game type than most, because they don’t use any virtual currency system and just allow you to purchase a few playable items, as well as additional game content. In addition to all the turrets and their unique customization, there are a variety of defensive extras that can be purchased with the money you earn by killing enemies. One of the defense units is actually unlocked through in app purchase, which is the battleship. You will find all the defensive units are extremely helpful, especially when you are being barraged with attacking enemies. There are over 20 different enemy types, including some bosses that you will have to handle to complete this game. I enjoyed playing Crashsite Defense and using a variety of strategies to win each of the 10 levels I played. I personally enjoyed the defensive weapon extras like the EMP Shockwave and the Battleship. Crashsite Defense is a thoughtful, well done and uniquely made TD game that has a look and feel that’s all its own — best of all, you get 9 large levels for FREE!
