Radiant Defense

Traditional tower defense games certainly haven’t innovated much in their short history: you have to place turrets to fight back hordes of enemies that are trying to destroy your base. Radiant Defense is one of the few examples of a game that tries to do things differently by changing one thing: you can block terrain to force enemies to follow certain paths that are more easily defended. It’s a great game with very colorful graphics. [Download]

Skull Towers – Castle Defense

Although most of these kinds of games feature an overhead view, there are a few that go against the flow by using other perspectives.

In addition to your trusty bow, you can construct barricades and other defenses to slow down your enemies. Don’t miss out on this fun and original title. [Download]

Tiny Archers

If you’re looking to stick to the term “tower defense”, this game may take it a bit too far. You will play a lone, eagle-eyed archer who has to defend a solitary tower already in place. It’s not clear why he is doing this, nor if he ever climbs down to do his business, but what is clear is his expertise with the bow and arrow. You have to choose the right parabolas to drive your arrows home and dispatch enemy cohorts that seek to conquer your land. Check out its different unlockable characters, which you can get after hours and hours of gameplay. [Download]
