Defender Chronicles 

 

Tower defense games are constantly trying to re-invent themselves to have a broader appeal. Defender Chronicles is a great example of this. Enemies will walk along a path from one spot to another spot. In Defender Chronicles they climb up hills, walk down them, go into cave, and re-appear elsewhere. Some will fly along a certain path. The player puts down buildings that house troops to stop them. This sounds really easy on paper, but Defender Chronicles is one of the most difficult games I have played.

The graphics look really good on Defender Chronicles on both the iPod Touch/iPhone and the iPad. Your troops will stab, slice, and shoot the bad characters. There are magical creatures that are a part of this game. The player has magic on their side to destroy the hordes that come their way.

The music in Defender Chronicles is awe inspiring. It is wonderful, fantastic, and amazing. Each of the troops have their own little sound bytes that they will repeat at certain intervals. A few of them are off color that the developers should have left out of the game. This is part of the reason Apple gave this game a 12 year old and older rating.

I am disappointed with how few levels there are in Defender Chronicles. The game gives the players two main heroes to play with. This artificially increases the replay value. There are multiple setting and numerous items that can be purchased. Ultimately Defender Chronicles still feels short and lacking.

Defender Chronicles is difficult. There are various troops that can be earned and used. The problem is finding the right combination for upcoming waves. What works at one point will not work later. This requires thought, and planning. At times it was a gamble what would work. Some things worked for the first few ten to twenty waves. Then it would fail, but there was not enough time to invest in a different way.

Defender Chronicles takes players on a quest to stop the advancing evil hordes. It does not really matter what they are because we have to stop them. I wish Defender Chronicles had been longer, and the sound bytes were not so adult. The game play in sequels should also be tweaked to make it more approachable by more members of the family. Defender Chronicles is a most interesting approach to the genre though.
