Now that there are many options available in the Android ecosystem, we’ve gone ahead and made a list of the best free Tower Defense games on Android.

Radiant Defense

Tradition 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]

Tiny Archers

If you want to stick exclusively to ‘Tower Defense’, it’s true that Tiny Archers is a bit of a stretch. You take control of an lone, eagle eyed archer who has to defend a solitary tower that is 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]

Digfender

We tried to get away from games that mix genres to keep the list more centered around Tower Defense, but Digfender combines elements from different genres into an incredibly fun game. Your objective is still to defend your base against hordes of enemies, but this time they appear out of the caves that you dig. This adds an extra element of strategy to base building, and has the added benefit of providing resources if you excavate certain areas. It’s a very interesting concept that deserves more love and attention. [Download]

Plants Vs Zombies 2

It would be a crime to have a conversation about Tower Defense without mentioning this stellar saga. The second edition of the popular Plants vs Zombies adds many more hours of gameplay, an assortment of defensive plants, and a continuously growing variety of hilarious zombies. There probably aren’t many of you who haven’t already played this game, or its classic original, but don’t hesitate if you haven’t. Now to get back to humming the song by Laura Shigihara. [Download]

Warcher Defenders

The epic task of defending your fortress alone is something that you have to try, and Warcher Defenders is one of the best games to do so. This fantastic retro game combines the difficulty of games from a bygone era with incredible pixelated graphics and chiptune music tracks.

Gameplay goes at a crazy pace, and there are difficult final bosses at the end of each screen. What more can you ask for in life? [Download]
