We’ve featured a few “tower defense games” on here before, where the simple concept of defending your home base from an oncoming wave of invaders. However, our latest App of the Week take things up a notch — up all the way into outer space!
Man your battle stations for Crashsite Defense.
As mentioned, Crashsite Defense is a tower defense game set in space. But what separates Crashsite from the pack is its insane graphics and hilarious storyline. Your clumsy captain seems to have crashed your ship in outer space (not sure how one manages to do that) and is too paranoid to accept help from oncoming fixer robots — so you must blast them all into oblivion! A vast arsenal of cannons and lasers will help ensure that you stay stranded forever!
Paranoid delusions aside, Crashsite really does have insanely good graphics. While our previous games took on a more cartoonish effect with their graphics, Crashsite looks almost like CGI with their intergalactic animations of explosions and firepower. Certainly, there must be some third-party Corona tools at work here…
On top of its graphics, the gameplay is structured through 20 levels with the aforementioned hilarious storyline. Longtime readers may know that I’m a little partial to games with storylines as they seems to give you an end-goal and purpose rather than simply racking up points via an infinite gaming loop. In Crashsite, you gotta think strategically — like with all “tower defense” games — and equip the turrets on your crashed ship with the right mojo to keep the oncoming “enemies” at bay. It’s almost factory-like in how you set up your defenses, but there’s quite a bit of variation across the 20 levels that will keep you on your toes and keep the game from getting monotonous.
